Richmond upon Thames: the view from London's "Arcadia" along the River Thames in Southwest London.
It looks as if Mrs. Smith has won First Prize for her courgettes yet again.
An excellent photo, Chuckeroon!! This looks so...British. Well done!
I agree with Diederich - so British! The image is wonderfully clear with such intense colours. I cannot get over that hand with the magnifying glass though. I wonder what she uses the shepherd's crook for ...
Well, I'm really impressed that her outfit matches the courgettes. Nicely composed photo. What does she expect to see under the glass (besides really, really big courgettes) do you suppose?
Very British indeed.
Chuckeroon, This photo made me smile, chuckle, and look again. At first I took in the well dressed lady, then that she was elderly and with a cane, then that this was a show of garden splendor, then that she brought her glass to help read the entries, and then your caption brought the house down. Wonderful photo, lovely dry humor, very well done.-KimSeattle Daily Photo
Like all the other... Really British!!! Bravo, wonderful shot! Makes me smile!
Mrs Smith is the courgette queen! Bravo!
Oh how utterly fabulous. I know her! I don't mean I know this particular lady but I know English ladies just like this. This has to be one of my favourites of many favourite photos you show, Chuckeroon. And my God, it's in colour - heaven forfend...You so captured the exact moment. Love it.
I actually suspect that she's trying to fry the competition.
B+W please for this one
Les jardins font mal aux yeux de Dark Richard !Que de détails dans cette photo : ne serait ce que la canne, la loupe (ce sont des légumes miniatures ? Pour les pumpkins qui d'ordinaire sont des "bêtes à concours" ce serait moins utile), le chapeau et la profusion des échantillons.Bien vu !
