Summer, Beach and a Lensbaby

Thought it might be an idea to post a few ‘summery’ pics, as it seems a long time since I went outside without a coat on! If you’re in the Southern hemisphere you might be reminiscing about winter – but maybe not.

All shot with the plastic optic on an Olympus 620, and, since you can see vaguely what the subject is, using one of the middle apertures (f4 or 5.6). This lens produces some lovely soft colours, the images needing relatively little post-processing.


Can’t do an English seaside series without some deck chairs….


Finally one of those oddities which makes using a Lensbaby so much fun. In all that blurry softness, how did it render the mooring rope sharply?


As always these shots are taken for the book cover market, and all comments, critiques and questions are welcome.

Thanks for looking – hope you like them and they give you some creative ideas for your photography.
