After photo club, it is customary for a few of us to head to the local pub for some extra socialising. This evening Gary was the barman. His daughter works there regularly, but he was standing in for her tonight as she was on holiday. As well as pulling our pints, Gary was happy to chat. He knows the photography bug – from the perspective that he’s a “photography widow” – his wife is nuts about taking pictures. Apparently he has to buy her expensive camera gear and then ends up carrying it for her when she’s on a shoot! I asked if he was ever tempted to take some shots himself, but apparently not. Maybe one day? Thanks for pulling a good pint and taking time to talk, Gary!
