The Lunch Table

IMG_1636_WPHaving moved to a new area of the UK, one of our tasks has been to find eating places that we will enjoy re-visiting and over time will become our favourites. We’ve tried out quite a few so far: some venues have been duds, and others look promising and worth revisiting.

One place we will be going back to again is ‘The Greets’ pub in Warnham. A strange name for a pub and next time we visit I must find out the history behind that name.

Not only did this pub serve very good food, but we ate it at a table that was photogenic. In fact it ranks as the most interesting table-top I’ve seen in quite a few years. Richly grained, there were ghouls hiding there if you had a mind and an eye to search them out.

IMG_1647_WPNo place is devoid of photographic potential once one has cultivated a ‘seeing eye’ – and the ability to ‘See’ never switches off, not even during lunch!

About LensScaper

Hi - I'm a UK-based photographer who started out 45+ years ago as a lover of landscapes, inspired by my love of outdoor pursuits: skiing, walking and climbing. Now retired, I seldom leave home without a camera and I find images in unexpected places and from different genres. I work on the premise that Photography is Art and that creativity is dependent on the cultivation of 'A Seeing Eye'. I'm not averse to manipulating images to produce derivatives that may sometimes be far removed from the original.

    You found some amazing creatures.

    The first ghoulie seems to be smiling, but the last reminds me of Edvard Munch’s “The Scream.” It looks as though the wood was untreated with epoxy or other coatings. Is that right? It doesn’t seem very practical. In any event, your images captured the grain perfectly.

    • LensScaper says:

      Yes, Linda, I see ‘The Scream’ too. No idea how this wood was treated nor from which tree the table tops have their origin. They are beautifully smooth and I think they must have been treated with some sort of dye to accentuate the contrast within the graining.

    There are some wonderful characters in there!
    Hope you are settling in well in your new home.

    • LensScaper says:

      Thanks Meanderer. Yes, we are settling in well and I have joined the Horsham Photographic Society – a strong, vibrant and welcoming club. Plenty to explore and thankfully we have moved into a house that does not require a complete re-fit and has a smallish garden more in keeping with our age – a change from a third of an acre at the previous one.

  6. A wonderful lunch table. So glad you have the eye to notice and the motivation to share it.

    Very cool patterns Andy. Looks like you had some creatures join you for lunch.

    Beautiful abstracts Andy. Nothing like wood! Glad you’ve found a good pub!
