I know it's been too quiet around here lately, life has caught up with me on a number of levels over the last little while and I've just not had the energy to dedicate to photography or blogging.

The picture above is a shot of my Father-in-law, wearing his new hat on Christmas day. I used the Zeiss 85mm f/2.8 AEJ on my Eos. Michael is a lovely guy but he's having a really hard time at the moment with his and his wife's health. I hope I've captured a little of his… Continue reading Michael
