Green baize and a soap bubble.

Today being Saint Patrick’s Day got me thinking about the colour green and things associated with the colour.

Baize is a coarse woollen cloth traditionally dyed green and used on snooker and billiards tables to cover the slate and cushions. The photo below dates back to the late 1970s. The green baize is actually a tablecloth on a photo studio table. The snooker cue was attached to a tripod and a friend is blowing bubbles. You can see his reflection in the soap bubble. I am bursting any soap bubbles that land in the wrong place or are the wrong size. I don’t remember how long it took us to get the shot.
