Recognise this place?
Yep, its my favourite watering hole, The Bear pub in Bedford.
Seems like ages since I last shot any pics in there. Not cos I’ve been absent (well, not apart from the odd week here and there); its just that, well, inspiration therein seemed to have died for a while.
But it all started up again today when mate commented on the quality of the light (and shadows) in the pool room. So I takes a gander and, cos we had the cameras out and were playing with them anyway, decide to grab me a couple of shots or so.
Then, suddenly I was seeing other things I wanted to shoot. Great.
Mate also. With his camera having been returned good as new he was messing around trying his hand at some black & white shots… which The Bear really does seem to lend itself to.
I’m now quite impatient to see the results of his efforts.
Just goes to show… take a break from a place or location for a while and the interest comes flooding back!
