With a bright blue sky in Brighton today the Olympus OM-D, 17mm f/1.8 and I headed down to visit the Street Diner on Queen's Street. Up until now the the Panasonic 25mm f/1.4 has been my go to lens but since investing in the 17mm f/1.8 it has been collecting dust and I have a feeling that it will continue to do so. Olympus continues to deliver the goods as the 17mm f/1.8 delivers great sharpness throughout the aperture range, an added snap ring for manual focusing and oozes quality.
Having talked about the diner over the past few weeks I couldn't wait to sample some of the recommendations that good friend Gordon Laing had given me. When I arrived I could instantly feel there was a great buzz about the place and as I walked around the open air diner the atmosphere just made you smile. With dishes from all around the world being prepared right in front of you there was plenty of vibrant colours and wonderful aromours to enjoy. All the stall owners were very friendly and having sampled several dishes all I can say is that I will be back and for anyone that hasn't visited and are in the area make sure you take the time to visit.
To give a true sense of the vibrancy and feel around the diner I set the picture mode to vivid and increased the contrast via the SCP (super control panel).
Here are a few of the images I captured whilst walking around the Street Diner.
