Watching the game

photo: Mark, Mike and Finbar stand in a line facing the small television set on the other side of the room; beyond them to the right is the bar; above them is a dark, wood ceiling beam adorned with car license plates from the USA; the low-power incanedscent lightbulbs cause the room to glow as if lit by candlelight.

Location: The Navigation, in Greensforge by the Staffordshire & Worcestershire Canal.

Date: Tuesday 30th June 1998.

Equipment: Yashica T5 compact.

Emulsion: Fujifilm Superia 400.

Keywords: public house, pub, dark, television set, group, watching football, World Cup '98.

Notes: this shot's not come out too bad, despite the area being very dark. The Yashica T5's maximum exposure of one second seems to have done the trick without flash, although you can see the grain where the shot has been slightly underexposed.
