Tea time at the bowls club

Recommended Posts

Advertisement (gone after registration)

Life is pretty quiet photographically for me at the moment, mostly due to really bad weather with heavy rain which makes street photography almost impossible. This means I am continuing my journey through my archives, and this I had forgotten. It shows a typical English pastime - playing bowls. The white clothes are the standard dress for everyone, and afternoon tea is almost compulsory. English tradition at its best.

Leica M3 + 50mm Summicron f2. Ilford 400 Delta. 1997.

My granddad spent the summers playing bowls, and every night a board game with a neighbour. Occasionally I used to watch (the former) as a schoolboy but in those days – the 1950s – they didn't 'dress up', in Stroud, Glos, anyway! Nice photo.

Composition and tonal control are outstanding.

Reminds me I could use another cup of coffee :)

      I escaped into the Hampshire countryside yesterday for the first time since lockdown started, and found this beautiful scene in the South Downs National Park. Hope you like it!

      Like so many I am in a lockdown situation, and as a safeguard I have not ventured out for many week because of my age and heart condition. Those around me are keen to keep me a live for some reason! 😄 I have therefore been exploring the home environment, and also exploring my under-used 24mm Elmarit-M f2.8 ASPH.
      Here is one from my garden which was taken with the Elmarit on my M240, and then converted to black and white in Lightroom CC. Technical details are 1/90 f8 @ 2000iso Init is pretty dark under the oak tree). Hope you like it!
