Hastings Day

Still icy at midday

Half term went by far too fast but included some fun days out and meeting new members of our family.    It was fun to walk around the lake catching up with cousins and enjoying the beautiful seaside scenery.  

I really love all  the colourful seaside  houses

The park in Hastings was a good place for some little boys to get rid of some energy  before their train ride home.

For those interested the lens I used for the photos is a Canon 50mm f/1.4  which is a prime lens meaning it does not zoom so you have to move around to get a good photo of something moving like a small child!  It   takes such fantastic clear, light, crisp images and works so well for child portraits, it is my favourite lens and I use it pretty much all the time. 

The reason for the mini family gathering was to welcome this new little man into our lives, here he is looking cute in a hat I knitted  for him.

Welcome to our world little boy,  won't be long before you are running around climbing trees too!
