50/50 project #37/50 In the round (by Cheshire photographer Jane Burkinshaw)

Day 37. In the round.50 days with a 50mm lensOk, confessions first. This project was originally about taking a photo every day with a 50mm lens for 50 consecutive days... major fail!

5 reasons why you should do a photography project (by Cheshire Photographer Jane Burkinshaw)

Newborn babies are my favourite subjects as they don't get about so much and because they are without exception extremely cute.In 2011, however,

50/50 project #34/50 Bad laundry day (by Cheshire photographer Jane Burkinshaw)

Day 34 Bad laundry day50 days with a 50mm lensCall me sad but I love this cheap little laundry dryer. It makes hanging out socks and smalls so much easier - less bending down to the peg bag must be better for my poor aching back!This pic also gives me chance to "air" one of my grievances - people who tumble dry all year round and don't ever peg out laundry outside, even on sunny days. What wanton wastefulness

Day 31 !Yo Sushi50 days with a 50mm lensI've finally given up on my 50mm f/1.8 lens which has been struggling since I dropped it (it was knocked out of my hands by a boisterous puppy!). Focusing has been hit and miss and it's been making grating scratchy noises. With my birthday imminent I've been treated to the Canon 50mm f/1.4 today - a more grown up version - faster, quieter and with even more bokeh!
