What's the weight of that there sheep, m'dear?
When I lived in north Devon, I got a lot of pleasure from visiting the agricultural shows with my camera. And often small, local shows were best value for taking pictures.
One Saturday I stumbled on this sheep show, just outside Barnstaple. And instead of a tombola, there was the chance to guess the weight of the sheep. At 20 pence a go, I couldn’t resist. Having guessed and lost my money, I told a colleague about it on the following Monday. She just laughed and said I should have known better. Most of the other visitors were farmers, who could estimate the weight of a sheep at a glance.
For the gentle pace of action that day, the Rolleiflex 2.8F that I used was perfect.
