Something Old...

One of the highlights for us each year is the small (but growing) Entally House Garden Festival. Squeezed between several other garden shows and the Deloraine Craft Fair, this one is small and has an "old school fair" feeling. The grounds are lovely and the stall holdings strike a fine balance between comprehensive and quaint.

We felt this year that it is on the verge of out growing itself, but we will see.

I also took the opportunity to try out an old friend. My first 45mm (silver) has come back to me after a few years on loan. I have a feeling that this one and the black one I own have slightly different character, especially in their bokeh, but only use will tell.

Limiting yourself to only one focal length, and a non standard one at that can be liberating (yes liberating, not frustrating or annoying! Well maybe a little). If anything, I missed a longer lens!
