Ruby at the Skatepark (Vintage Olympus Zuiko 50mm f1.8 lens)

Time for another picture of my best friend Ruby

I shot this with a vintage Olympus Zuiko 50mm f1.8 lens. This wasn't a charity shop lens it was mine, from a Olympus OM20 SLR camera that I bought back in the early 80's

The lens is in mint condition and I decided to give it a run out on Monday afternoon as Ruby and myself went street and park walking in and around Arnold.

We walked to Daybrook so I could photograph the old "Home Ales" building. We walked to "Pets at Home" to price up Dog Food, I saw one of my strangers on the way , Ben, the young man with tattoos on his face, so I had a chat with him.

We walked by the Day Brook on Thackerays Lane Park , took a shot cut to the Duck Park and then made our way to King George's Park where I did a little photoshoot of Ruby in the low sunlight.

As you can see Ruby has her winter coat on (not zipped up proper;y said my wife when she saw the pics). It's quite a trendy purple pink leopard print that zips from tail to neck along the back ! We were watching X-Factor Celebrity at the weekend and a member of the all female band V5 had a hat in the same pattern and colour as Ruby . You see our dog is a fashion conscious dog !

Anyway f5.6 , aperture priority and the old lens has done a great job , i think the colours rendered are rather lovely.
Hi Ruby, looking very fetching there!

Ruby looks always ready to pose for you. This time she maybe thinking that she is taking part in a fashion show. I like her coat. A great portrait capture here, too.
