We spent the last sunny bank holiday Monday visiting Nymans,a National Trust house and gardens in West Sussex. Wandering down forget-me-not lined paths, admiring tulips and wisteria, and peeking through the windows of the part-ruined house was a pretty great way to celebrate the day off work.
I took along my new 50mm / f1.8 lens for its first outing and after a bit of trial and error I'm really pleased with some of the pictures. It has captured the magical light that morning perfectly and creates a dreamy background blur. I found the fixed 50mm a bit of a challenge at first (and kept trying to zoom in/out) but you get used moving your feet rather than the camera after a while!
