Well its been around 3 months since my last blog post here – In my defense I have been moving house, with therefore little time to edit photo’s, couple that with a number of great gigs for the band and the time has just been vanishing.
The move came quite unexpectedly, we had all but given up after the previous years failures, the out of the blue came a new house, and before we new it, we had bought it – quite a Curve ball.

Well I have finally finished editing the pictures taken on our holiday to Dartmoor in July 2015. Below is one of my favorites from the series.
For those of you who are not friends on facebook you can find the other photos here – Dartmoor July 2015, where you will find photos of ancient monuments, national trust properties, flowers, landscapes, and much more.
Ok so while not entirely sticking to the brief, the first photo was the next in my list to be edited, well its vaguely red, with some white. Both photos were taken during this years visit to Dartmoor.If you want to see other entrants to CEE’S FUN FOTO CHALLENGE: RED FLOWERS click here.
Well its been quite a while since I had chance to post any photos, or even work on them for that matter. What with work and preparing the artwork for the Kantref CD all my time seems to disappear. Anyway today is a lazy day off work, we were out gigging last night and I didn’t get home until after four in the morning, and took the opportunity to sneak out in the garden and take some shots. So here is my favorite from this morning.
I particularly like this delicate bloom, so I thought I would share it with you.

Well I was browsing amazon during my afternoon break the other day and I saw a Pentacon 2.8 29mm M42 mount lens for sale. Well it was a ridiculously low price so I thought I may as well have it. I had front and rear caps and a hoya skylight, well you really could not go wrong for the price. At 29mm its very nearly a 45mm on a APS-C sensor, so its very close to the field of vision of the human eye.
So how does it perform? Well not bad, I’m not blown away, but I didn’t expect to be for the price, and I have only walked around the back garden with it as yet. I am looking forward to taking some shots of architecture with it though. So here are some shots with it attached to the front of the a6000. The first is straight on the camera. I am not sure I like the bokeh that is being produced, I guess I will have to wait until I use the lens with some stronger light sources behind.
The second is with both 16mm and 10mm extension tubes as well. I quite like the way the lens has rendered the background in this picture.
