My girls were dancing in the parade and on stage in the Willoughby Spring Fair over the weekend so I took my camera (of course).

Note: These images (especially the wider shots) look much better when larger – so click any of the images below to see larger versions in an inline overlay slideshow gallery viewer.

The parade went well and the girls and the crowd had a great time…

I’d taken my new 85/1.8 for a spin (because it was small, light and fast); however whilst I was hovering there was also a small display of some classic cars near the performance stage where my girls were dancing so…

The 85 has a fairly long minimum focus distance (80cm) so it’s not macro by any stretch of the imagination but I figured I’d try some more detailed shots rather than do something boring like a shot of the whole car. Here are a couple that I liked…

    I found this rather interesting and I thoroughly enjoyed working my way through it.It has inspired me to do a better job of my own blog, as I tend to find it quite difficult to come up with any good ideas to post to be fair but it has certainly broadened my horizons. I was curious what plugins you may use to help your SEO and if you can share any tips on that subject I would be very grateful? I don’t use wordpress on my main website as it does not have that feature in the control panel, as it is quite basic but I do have other smaller websites which I want to use wordpress on to give them more of an internet presence. Keep up the good work.Kind regards.
