Favourite pictures – Emma candid portrait

This is a picture which I took almost a year ago when I first got my mirrorless Sony Nex 6 and was experimenting with manual focus lenses.

This is in one of the upper rooms in some of the out houses at Kentwell, where some Tudor re-enactment players were collecting herbs and manufacturing medicine used by tudor Englanders. This lady was sitting in the window and I liked the […]
