The Bruce McLaren Trust have again asked me to produce a book in conjunction with the next Festival in January 2013 which will honour Denny. This follows the Festivals honouring Bruce in 2010 and Chris in 2011 - we put together books for both Festivals and these are available on the Bruce McLaren Trust website.

I met with Phil Kerr and his wife Pat on Sunday - Pat was already photographing motor racing before she and Phil got together and has a great collection. We're meeting Greeta and Anita this Saturday to go over their photos but the Trust have taken me up on an idea of offering a free book to anyone who provides a photo that we choose to use.

We have plenty of orange McLarens and green Brabhams but this being TNF, it is inevitable that some treasures are out there of a wide range of things - maybe the Honda at the Ring, a Mk 2 Jag, Coopers, Porsche, Eagle, Ferrari and so on. I know Greeta has a great photo of the BT8 but if you have something, and we use it, the offer is there - together with appropriate recognition in the book.

The books aren't major works - only around 100 pages - but I'm delighted to say that Pete Lyons and Eoin Young have agreed to pen joint Forewords for the Denny effort.

Having access to the Sid Taylor archives, I have many interesting Denny pics, as you might imagine. Please pm me with contact details Michael and I'll show you what we have.

Michael, please send me a message so I can give you my email. I don't know how to post photos here.

I have a nice shot of Denny driving Bob Jane's McLaren M6 Repco at the 2nd Adelaide AGP. No helmet waving to the crowd.

XJ, this might help:

It's a bit quirky, but like most things technical quite easy once you "know how."

ImageShack is all I've used here but works well.

Thanks, I don't have imageshack so that's part of the problem. I am not a professional so I don't feel the need to protect any photos I have taken myself.

For what its worth, I've found Postimage.org to be very straightforward and simple to use for posting photos to this forum, using the "Hotlink for forums" option.

I used to use Imageshack but they have lost a lot of my pictures, and they now limit free accounts to 500 pictures so I now use Photobucket - the disadvantage is that I can't seem to use thumbnails from them.
