Peter - stranger #13 / by Nigel Rumsey

Peter Beeson, artist, eating lunch in St. Ives The Digey, St. Ives, Cornwall

I interrupted Peter eating a lunch of roast duck and roast potatoes outside this restaurant in St. Ives. He had a digital Leica sitting on the table and he kindly let me try it out. We got talking about film vs digital the pros and the cons - as you do.

Peter works as an artist, based in St. Ives, and shoots landscapes. I can't remember if he said he painted from life or the photograph. A really confident guy, I got the impression nothing would phase him!

Sorry about interrupting your lunch Peter.

Leica M6, Kodak Tri-x, HC-110 'B' - 7 mins.
