STILL LIFE 51 – TWO CHAIRS, SIDE BY SIDE (MONO)

The two curving and tapering shapes advancing out towards the camera – apparently for a closer look at it – are the exception here. Almost everything else is either coated by hard, precise, rectilinear patterns, or in shadow.
At last I’m starting to use the X-T1’s tilting LCD screen a little more. Its already proved very useful in getting an extreme wide angle lens down to ground level, as in this shot.
And now, as I approached these chairs, it was much easier to get the camera down to their level by looking down into the screen – that is, much easier than it would be getting me down to their level to look at them horizontally though the viewfinder ->>> its an age thing 😦 !!!
And this pub’s strange name? Its due to a spy hole in the pub’s wall, where centuries ago smugglers might keep a look out for customs and excise men – and any man might keep a look out for the press gangs that roved this busy port, snatching men for the harsh and dangerous life endured by sailors on the Royal Navy’s warships.
