When I first started this blog one of the reasons I wanted to write it was to publish some of my favourite pictures – in fact the tag line to the blog reads ‘My favourite pictures and other things’. For that reason I’ve decided to resurrect that aim with a few posts from our holiday in Suffolk. Because I took a lot of pictures I think this will mean that I will increase my frequency of posting for a bit to work through this backlog.
So I’m going to start with this picture of ‘The Wool Dyer’ which I took at Kentwell Hall in Suffolk where they were hosting a Tudor Day.
This picture was taken with a 1980’s Soligor 28mm f/2.8 lens (equivalent to 42mm on my Nex 6) and I think it was at about f/5.6. The first thing we saw as we approached the weaving shed was the colourful line of wools drying in the sun and I wanted to use these to lead the eye into the main subject of the picture which is the wool dyer herself.
