A lovely day out in Rye, East Sussex.

 Cobbled streets, ancient buildings & great little shops, it's a town steeped in history with something interesting round every corner.  On one of the hottest days of the years we had a very long lunch & walked in the shade the entire time! 

Rye Castle, otherwise known as Ypres Tower & a couple of typical local buildings.  This was a great opportunity to try out my new Olympus PEN, as well as using my i-phone. Am very pleased with the latter, although the settings are a 'mare to work out in sunlight! But it's depth of field (bokeh) is awesome on the flower shots.

There were some interesting doors in Rye, ancient & not so ancient.........

And, of course, the day would not have been complete without an impromptu fashion shoot with the PEN! My bezza Dalia is a natural: both as a photographer & as a model. Not bad for ladies over 60 are we, and I got to wear my favourite Hoss Intropia summer dress in the UK, in August.....most unusual!

Dalia's dress is from Hobbs, her sunglasses by Vera Wang, her handbag from TK Max, & her sandals are from Kurt Geiger

My vintage sunglasses are from Fabulous Fanny's in NYC, bag from Elif Kose in Rottingdean, & sandals by FitFlop.

A great day out and if you've never visited Rye, make sure it's on your 'must visit' list.  You'll love it. I found some great buttons & bows, for photography, in the local market so went home a very happy bunny, letting the train take the strain!
