|Adox paper, light sepia tone. On the M6 I think, although it could have been the Nikon. Either way, HP5+ and a fairly close crop.|
I think one of the best examples of the use of this phrase was in a story I was told a few years back by a colleague. He was travelling 'down South' - County Kerry or somewhere where the tourists go - and found himself in a car park at the top of a hill renowned for it's all-encompassing views of the surrounding coastline. Anyway, my colleague says he was just sitting watching the goings-on around him when he noticed a guy dressed as an old Irish tinker sitting on the grass next to a donkey and cart. The cart was laden with turf. 'What's he up to?', my colleague wondered to himself. Next thing a coach-load of tourists arrives and discharges its load. Yer man with the donkey leaps up and makes himself visible to the tourists, who all line up to take his photograph, either with or without their wife/husband/partner. Money was parted with.
When the coach departed, my colleague wanders up to the fellow, tips him a smile, a nod of the head and a knowing wink and says: 'Fair play to you', before taking his leave.
