Barton’s Point Cafe, Minster on Sea, England. 2018
Originally I posted an image from the same film called ‘Cafe dog’ (below) but I don’t remember seeing this frame among the negatives. If I did I might of rejected it because my wife in the background and her pink coloured top at the back of the image. Looking again, I think this picture is now much better than the previous picture I posted, not only being the whole frame but with the three people in the image it leads diagonally to the dog.
Leica M4-2, Summicron-M 35mm f/2 ASPH lens and taken on AGFA Vista 200 colour print film.
I took my car along to a local hand car wash and the heavens opened.
To my left of this shot was another car being vacuumed under the canopy but these guys carried on out in the open. As fast as they applied the soap, it was being washed off by the rain. As they got wetter and wetter I started taking shots, even when the rain got harder they carried on with their jet washes. Amazingly, once under the canopy to be vacuumed these boys still used chamois leathers to dry the body work despite the heavy rain, bit pointless really, the car soon got as wet when it was being washed as we departed for home.
A job well done by them and I gave them both a good tip for their efforts. Just goes to show there’s always a chance of a good picture to be had even while getting mundane tasks done.
