Soft Apples
Soft Apples

I have recently bought a Canon 550d, my first DSLR camera. Fascinated as I am by old lenses, I bought a high quality FD/EOS adapter so that I can use the Canon FD range of lenses that were used from the early 1970s until 1990.

A local camera shop has a large range of secondhand FD lenses in stock, and by the looks of it they rarely sell any, so I was able to pick up an FD 50mm F1:1.4 for a good price (part exchanged my old Panasonic Lumix FZ30).

This is one of the first photos I took with this lens, a bowl of apples under fading daylight. I am rather pleased with it – the resulting image is soft and appley – just how I’d hoped.



If you’re one of the many people who don’t like cider since that incident with a 2 litre bottle of Diamond White when you were 17, I implore you to think again!

ukcider has recently launched a new blog, perfect for finding out about new ones to try. Head over and give it a read.

If you live near Salisbury in the UK, you live near one of the best places to buy real cider – Abbey Stores – where you can buy it bottled, or draught in 2 or 4 pint containers to take away.
