Another candid pub garden capture , one of the pub regulars having a Condor moment in the evening sunshine .
Hampshire UK.
Nikon D60 70-300mm sigma lens . Handheld .

I am a 53 year old ageing Hippy with a love of nature . A romantic at heart but sadly single. I used to be a decorator but since my father became ill I have given up my business to care for him full time . When I have time to myself I like nothing more than to get out into the woods or the countryside and capture the sights around me. I hope you enjoy seeing what I see. Thanks for viewing. Kind regards Mark.

    funny to see people smoking these days xx

  • At my local there are as many outside the pub in the garden smoking as there are indoors being prevented from smoking . I have seen a drop in smokers but not that much of one, around here anyway. I am sure it will in time but the hardend smoker will always resist giving up .
