Again With That Cricket Thing

So yesterday afternoon I went once more to watch Mr. FM’s Son&Heir play for the local village cricket team, which, as before, was played in an atmosphere of utter class, fine play and good sportsmanship. The weather this time was far better, though:

  2. Kim, what type of fish is that?

    If the proper effect of good food photography is to make the viewer hunger for the food shown, damn, that was a good picture.
