2 Weeks Off.

November 15th, 2008

Whilst my blog has been inactive, Jessica and Myself celebrated a year of marriage!
We married eachother on the 26th of October up in Lancashire.
We had an amazing wedding with all our best friends and our family.

To celebrate, Jess booked two weeks off work, which was perfect! Just what we needed.
We got up to all sorts, it was brilliant! We didn't do as much as what we wanted to as we both had the cold that everyone seems to have at the moment.
I think the best thing we did was visiting Thermae Bath Spa for a twilight session. Along with allot more, they have a rooftop pool with really warm water. As the cold air hits the warm water, lots of steam comes off and it's an amazing site!
The deal clincher though, was that it was firework night, and there was a massive fireworks display over the city next to the cathedral, and we had the best view ever (which was often momentarily interupted by the steam) It was a fantastic experience!
If you live locally, make sure you're there next year! You will not regret it!! And you'll see us there too, I'm sure!
Next time we're there, I'll try to smuggle a waterproof camera in!

We had some really great meals, we ate at Jamie Olivers new restaurant in bath which was amazing. Jess loved it of course, she's a huge Jamie Oliver Fan. Browns was another place we ate at with a couple of our friends, and I plan to incoorperate the building into a future photoshoot.

On a technical point, while editing these pictures, I noticed that I had been using the same lens for the whole 2 weeks, which I don't mind at all.
For quite a long time, I've owned the 50mm f1.8, but it really just seems to sit at the bottom of my bag.
I was never happy with the focusing speed, and the sharpness, especially wide open at f1.8
My sister in law borrowed my usual lens, my 18-50mm 2.8 so I used that as an oppurtunity to get to know my "nifty fifty" a bit better.
I fell in love with it! =)
Its perfect for dim rooms, and portraits. It just throws the background out of focus and makes the subject really pop!
Enjoy these pictures, and I must warn you, there's quite allot, and most won't mean much to you, but I just wanted to share.
