PEOPLE 233 – READING A NEWSPAPER 1

Turning the page of a newspaper in a Bristol pub, with a half pint of bubbling shandy standing ready to hand; 2 Sept 2016.

I don’t use this little Canon camera much these days but, with its fully articulated screen and highly accessible controls, its very handy in changing and close-in situations, and it shoots Raw. 

It usually accompanies me on visits to pubs, its very good to have to hand – just in case.

About Adrian Lewis
Photographer working in monochrome, colour and combinations of the two - with a great liking for all sorts of images, including Minimalism, landscapes, abstracts, soft colour, people, movement, nature - I like to be adventurous in my photography, trying new ideas and working in many genres. And I'm fond of Full English Breakfasts and Duvel golden ale, though not necessarily together.

    Yea, a little camera you can love as much as your monster Nikon is hard to find. This is not forbidden fruit!

      No, you won’t get Forbidden Fruit in there – its shandy which, to me, is forbidden too, for other reasons … Speaking of which, I’ve just received another delivery of Belgians from Beers of Europe, so this is going to be a delicious weekend!

    Ooh – just saw this pop up in my reader and it really caught my eye. What a lovely image. First of all – I love the blue colours the person is wearing – don’t they complement the amber colour of the drink?! Also it makes me feel warm and cosy – of sitting in a pub in the daytime amidst others all there for the purpose of a nice convivial drink and a tasty bite – or, as here, a relaxing look at the paper.

    We often frequent Wetherspoons whenever in town (I know, I know – Wetherspoons is a bit like Marmite: people love it or hate it) but they offer lots of veggie options at very reasonable prices. Our local one is a large pub with snugs juxtaposed with more sociable areas. I love the characters one sees in there. I remember a couple of Christmas’s ago – after a heavy day of shopping, we went in for a bite and drink and sat in one of the snugs which had, I think, three tables. Shortly a couple of old boys and a younger chap – a son, I think, sat near us, giving a running commentary on what was in the newspapers – making us chuckle. They struck up a conversation and eventually began running some songs past us. I clearly remember the song directed to me: ‘Baby Face’. I’ve never been redder (well I probably have) 🙂

      Well, M, you’ve probably won the prize for longest ever comment on this blog – wonderful stuff! And the prize is a night out with me, and second prize is two nights out with me …

      Glad you like the pic – thanks! Yes, sitting in pubs in the daytime is a rather pleasant activity – but we have been thwarted by the fact that two pubs near us have closed down their breakfast + booze mornings – does no one have any sense of style any more? – and so if I fancy an early morning tipple it is indeed Wetherspoons down in the city, but I’m not a huge fan, not least because two of my stepkids work (elsewhere) for the chain, and because I don’t rate their food that highly. Still, any port in a storm …

      As it is, I’m planning an early more foray into the city tomorrow – the Fuji will do 51,000 ISO and I’m going to try it out, tho I have a feeling the Nikons will be rather better in the gloaming – and there’s a wonderful (non-chain) café that does hot bacon sandwiches, and then after that there’s a French bakery – my knees have suddenly gone all unnecessary …

      Snugs sound good, they sound just my thing. Baby Face, eh? What a revelation! 😀
