This is a hand roller, not often seen these days and i would imagine quite hard work to use. It is slowly rusting away in a corner of the farm yard where i have my workshop, as soon as i saw it i thought 'Ah, black & white'.
Very nice image Steve, my girlfriend is the scorer for our village cricket team, and following them around I still get to see a lot of old hand rollers like this (and often significantly larger). A fair few of them still see regular use too!
Great subject for the black & white treatment, and a quality conversion too.
