The Lockdown Logs #59

The Lockdown Logs

Dateline: May 31st 2020

Tonight’s socially isolated single permitted exercise walk took me up the Tullygarvan Road, where I was privileged to meet young Angus here.  He was having a cool refreshing drink of water when I arrived at his home, but he happily took a few minutes out of his busy schedule to pose for the camera – with a long lens!

Comber Spuds

Janette brought these freshly-dug new Comber potatoes home today.  This morning they were in the ground.  Tomorrow, they will be boiled, (Over here, we don’t peel these potatoes, we just scrub them and boil them in their skins – when ready the skins will almost fall off them) salted and served with lashing of butter.  The Comber potato is a waxy, flavoursome food, and a protected brand.

I photographed them in the Studio-Pod, under two Elinchrom D-Lites, with the Fujifilm X-T2, and Nikkor 50mm MF lens, against a green chromakey background.  F=50mm, f/5.6 @ 1/125th sec on ISO400.
