OUTER SUBURBS 134 – TAKING A CAMERA TO LUNCH … AND A FUN COMPETITION WITH FUN PRIZES!!!

Out for lunch, and lunch taking awhile to appear. Well, it was a Monday, the school holidays are over, and maybe the restaurant hadn’t expected such a tide of (mostly) oldies.  Anyway, the TG-5 camera was in my pocket, as it often is, and so to looking around at the things on the table in front of me.  When you’re into photography, there’s always something to look at …

But when it eventually appeared, the large mixed grill couldn’t be faulted – a carnivore’s dream, accompanied by tomato, onion rings, mushroom and (an inexhaustible supply of) chips, and probably with more than a whole day’s quota of calories.  In fact it was almost more than I could eat; must be getting old …

And, as always, the Olympus TOUGH TG-5 camera was wonderfully compact, and very capable and adaptable.  I used spot metering; and also the Microscope Mode, which enables extreme close up shots with illumination from the camera; 1600 ISO; processing in Lightroom.  Each picture can be enlarged by clicking onto it to open a larger version in a separate window, and clicking onto that image to further enlarge it.

3 >>> COMPETITION!!!  BIG PRIZES!!!  QUESTION: WHAT DOES THIS ARTWORK SHOW???  >>>  First prize: a night out in the Outer Suburbs with The FATman!!!  Second prize: two nights out in Outer Suburbs with The FATman!!!!!!  And furthermore, really entering into the spirit of the thing, The FATman will on this occasion lower his usual standards and dress code so that black tie will NOT be de rigueur!

About Adrian Lewis
Photographer working in monochrome, colour and combinations of the two - with a great liking for many types of subject, 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.

    A terrific series of eating out photos – microscope mode, how cool it that? “Illumination from the camera” – you don’t appear to be talking about flash. 😉 The photos are excellent, the third one looks like a table edge and a hat or sweater to me. A knee would be more logical but I don’t think you wear knit pants…

      No, its not flashing flash as such, but its the flash shining permanently – which is excellent for illuminating dark, very close up objects – quite impressive what this camera will do. I have always thought “knit pants” as somehow infra dig ….. >>> LOL!!! its The FATman’s bulging gut, thankfully covered by a sweater!!!!! 🙂 🙂 🙂

    Love the condiments pots – and the limes are making me thirsty 🙂

    Before I saw Michael’s comment I thought number 3 was a nice warm jumper with someone looking down at it 🙂 🙂 Either that or a purple furrowed field …….

      Well, I’m just not sure I could manage 30 nights out in the OS, not without lots of Ovaltine, Smarties and anabolic steroids anyway – can the Age of Romance really be past??? 🙂 🙂 🙂
