Tabio

On Thursday a sudden urge to photograph socks came over me. I say sudden, I had been invited to a blogging event by Tabio, so it helped that I was in the presence of some damn fine socks, as I am sure you'll agree. I saw lots of my favourite London based bloggers there, as well as meeting some new faces which was so lovely, but I only ended up taking one photo that had any actual people in it! Next time, I will get slightly less distracted by socks, promise.

Tabio have pretty much every colour and style of sock and tights you could ever imagine, and quite a few you couldn't. They have a couple of shops in London, and I'd definitely recommend a browse around to gaze longingly at the beautiful things on offer, and maybe pick up a treat for your feet too!

I also took the opportunity to play with my new 50mm lens a bit more. I'm still working on getting the optimum amount of blurriness in my photos, but I absolutely love the effects I'm getting so far!

Your 50mm photos look fab! I particularly like the second one - the exposure is just right and the depth of field is perfect.

Looks like such a fun event! I didn't manage to get to this one, but maybe next time. x

You had me at the first picture. I'm kind of a socks collector, if you will. Cute socks, and I must have them. Some people it's shoes, for me it's socks.
