Photo & Video Diary: Cardiff to Freddy Files, Ninove 2014 ... and Back Again

Personal round up of road-trip, cruise and show from this weekend's show, Freddy Files in Ninove. It's basically stuff that doesn't necessarily fit anywhere else. Some shots are off DSLR, some off iphone, some screenshots of video. It's the kind of show that attracts vdubbers from all across Europe to this Belgian town for a Saturday of cruising and partying and Sunday of show-ing and chilling.

I wasn't shooting in any official show capacity ... it was more of a social thing. Managed to make a mini-video diary below too!

Rough and ready video roundup from our recent trip to Freddy Files in Ninove, Belgium. Great trip, great rides, great company. http://www.rothfink.com

Music credits: ‘Laid out’ by Dieselfitter, ‘Suspension of disbelief’ by The Modern Farewell (pre-release off their new album) and Pin the Groove by Conrad Watts (SFDB records).

The pics below are a personal roundup of memories / video screenshots. See more shots over at Rothfink Industries.
