The Day Before The Wedding (vintage leica summicron lens)

This is my daughter Claire

She gets married tomorrow

I had the day off work as we had a lot of pre wedding jobs to do. Our final job was to walk our whippet Ruby, before she went off to a colleague from work, who does dog sitting. This shot was took on our walk as I thought the big row of railings would make a nice backdrop.

I shot this with my late fathers leica summicron 5cm f2 collapsible lens attached to my Sony A6000. The lens is from 1953 and as you can see it did a great job.

I used my Dad's lens so he sort of took part in the wedding, I will take some morning prep shots with the lens before I switch to my Sony 50mm f1.8

This was shot somewhere between f4 and f5.6 on the aperture ring.

I've done my speech , it's in my wife's hand bag , I practised it on my wife last night and she was laughing out loud :)

Have a great day tomorrow Claire xx

That's it , wedding pics to follow soon
Wow! What a beautiful girl and a great day ahead. Hope you all have a fabulous day!
