I had a wedding venue in Chesterfield to visit yesterday and, seeing as it was the first day of the school holidays, I dragged everyone along with me. On our way back we had a little stop off in the Peak District.
It was a red hot day, so we decided against anything exerting and settled on a leisurely walk round Ladybower Dam.
I decided to go simple on this little trip and just took my old rangefinder style Fuji Xpro1 with a single fixed 18mm prime lens. It meant I had a single focal length for everything, but it's nice to mix things up once in a while. It was nice not to have to carry a bag full of lenses with me as I usually do!
We had a lovely little stroll, basked in the sun and skimmed some stones. Freddie once again threw most of the shoreline back into the res. And had a complete toddler meltdown when we pulled him away from the water!
Alfie had a little 'paddle' and ended up soaked from top to toe.
Joshua did the usual teen strop thing.
Anyway, as usual I took too many photos. Here's some snaps.
Thought I'd start this little blog to let people know what we get up to. Some personal stuff thrown in the mix too.
