A Christmas present – my new lens

Just a short post today as I’m still away at my parents’ enjoying mulled wine, movies by the fire, new slippers, dog walks along the beach and long lie-ins.  Amidst all of that, and the fact that I’m feeling so relaxed I can barely remember what day it is, I’m afraid blogging has taken a bit of a back seat.  I am unashamedly prioritising some much needed R ‘n’ R.

But I thought I would share a little bit of testing I’ve been doing with the Christmas present from my parents, the Canon 40mm pancake lens.  I’ve been nosing around my parents’ house for little details to capture with it, and I am absolutely head over heels for the dreamy blurriness.  Their house is a treasure trove of little vintage finds and cosiness and I’ll loved capturing the things that catch my eye.

I usually edit my photos before I post them but in the interests of a quick post, and the lack of Photoshop, these are straight from the camera.  I hope you like them – it really is such a fun lens to play with.  I took it to the beach with me this morning but I’ll save those photos for another day.

Hope you’re having a wonderful Christmas period and making the most of putting your feet up and slowing down for a while.
