Out here in the fields

By dudler  
I fight for my meals
I get my back into my living
I don't need to fight, to prove I'm right
I don't need to be.

Not CSI, or a Sixties throwback, but Legend147 (Andy) doing his hting on a misty day in North Staffordshire...

Although this spot is only around 200 yards from the road, we had to use the map on Andy's mobile to find it. And edge our way past a number of bullocks in the enxt field.

On the plus side, we were only a couple of miles from the Roaches Tea Room and Restaurant : complete with 'all day comfort food' which is precisely what we needed.

It's also where I interviewed Andy - the result (along with some of the pictures) is HERE . So if you like his pictures, find out what he does. And if you haven't seen them, go and have a look at his portfolio !

A smashing atmospheric shot, John. Now there's a man who knows how to dress for the occasion. (As do your usual models of course.) Smile

Things we have to do for our art John. Some call it madness...

Thanks for reminding me of the tea rooms. A welcome break after a long walk all the way to Ludd's church and coming back the long way round.

The change, it had to come
We knew it all along
We were liberated from the fold, that's all
And the world looks just the same
And history ain't changed......

Baba O'Riley - long, long time since I heard those words! Their way of saying there's no such thing as a free lunch if you want to achieve things.

Excellent image to supplement the excellent article, John. It's always good to get an insight into the mind thoughts of someone who has other photographic interests than oneself.

A terrific atmospheric shot,
so it wasn't someone spotting a nude in the mist with bins!
