I met some familiar faces – McAWilliams (who very kindly organised the whole thing, much to the detriment of his own snapping), Redmum, Steven, Julie – and some not so familiar ones, so I have a few new Twitter peeps and some great new photoblogs to follow. It’s so nice to go wandering with people who don’t mind if you stop every two minutes to take a picture! You can see the rest of the pics I took by clicking ‘ere. I’m still trying to figure out which two to submit to the competition – the prizes are pretty sweet, although the odds of winning are depressing low, given that over 37,000 photographers took part worldwide.
(P.S. Thanks a mill to Steven who let me borrow his 50mm 1.8 while my 50mm 1.4 rested up in the sickie shop. I have been seriously hooked on that lens and missing it big time. However, I am proud to report that the above shots were taken with a variety of lenses (the first two are 50mm 1.8, the third one was taken with the kit lens, 18-55mm 3-5.6, the fourth with the holga lens on my 400D body, then 50mm 1.8 again times two, then finally the shot of the couple was with the Sigma 70-300 4-5.6. Maybe I’m finally getting out of the fiddy rut….)
