What the night was all about

Last night I went out for a very enjoyable (and memorable!) meet with fellow flickr Sheffield Group members at The Red Lion on Charles Street.

It was enjoyable because it was great to talk photography, cameras and drink beer with a whole load of like-minded guys. And it was also great to meet people that I had only known on the internet before.

It was memorable because one (now ex-) member of the group became very abusive and got himself thrown-out and barred from the pub and now banned from the group. The whole situation was handled brilliantly by the group leaders and by the landlady of the pub.

As you would expect I made use of my Sigma 50mm f/1.4 to shoot some moody, low light, wide-open shots. Some of them are perhaps a bit soft but I think my alcohol consumption had more to do with this than the camera or lens!

  2. This fun twist on poker combines 1Xbet elements from the ancient Chinese sport of Pai Gow and the American sport of poker. The object of Pai Gow Poker is to get the two best arms. The joker must be used as an Ace or as a Wild Card to finish a Straight or a Flush. Lucky Lucky is our hottest blackjack facet bet, outcome of} its high hit frequency. It pays odds if the entire of the player’s first two playing cards and the dealer’s up card equals 19, 20 or 21.
