Quite a lot of the money I got by trading in my old Nikon equipment at Wex, I spent on a new lens – the Sony SEL35f18 – a 35mm f/1.8 e-mount lens for the NEX, with OSS (Sony’s optical stabilising, like Nikon VR or Canon’s IS). It’s a nice little lens, and the 35mm […]
Two shots, both taken with an old Chinon 135mm f/2.8 lens. These are as close as this lens can focus, but it brings out colours and tones really nicely, and the wide aperture gives a beautifully shallow depth of field.
I walked home recently. I haven’t done that for a while, and it felt like a bit of a challenge. It isn’t so much the distance as the steep hill at the end. I made it home, though, without collapsing and dying at all, which was a win. It was also a nice chance to […]
I sent most of my old Nikon gear to Wex for part exchange recently, and spent the proceeds on new toys for my Sony NEX-6. They arrived yesterday.

It’s quite nicely unobtrusive, […]
I’d just finished for the day at work, and spotted an interesting sunset sky. One photo didn’t seem to do the job, so I took a few and stuck them together later.
