We get involved in some interesting assignments at Sailing Scenes. Most, but by no means all, involve boats in one form or another, as did one the other night. It combined a boat, Poole Harbour on a glorious spring evening, some delicious nibbles, and the element around which the entire evening revolved: gin. A selection of gins, in fact, and artisan gins to boot, for this was an evening dedicated to the tasting of gins produced by selected small-scale distilleries.
We photographed the beautifully-arranged tables in the saloon where the gin took pride of place, the gin bottles themselves, people enjoying tasting the gin, the boat carrying the people enjoying tasting the gin…and just about anything else gin-related.
A good time was had by all, though of course those of us who were working refrained from having so much as a sniff from any of the creatively-shaped and artistically-labeled bottles. We’re sure it was wonderful stuff all the same.
Perhaps our next job will involve visiting a gin producer. That really would give new meaning to ‘still photography’…
