Being half term for schools in England, and as per usual raining it's difficult to know what to do with the kids to keep them occupied. As it happens the British Motor Museum at Gaydon, Warwickshire is not too far from us so we decided on a quick trip down there to see what it had in store having had a bit of a make over recently. Being home to the largest collection of British motor vehicles it's home to a lot of different vehicles so is a great opportunity to explore the the good, the bad and the ugly of the UK motor industry.

I wanted to travel light for the day, so just took my Fuji X-Pro1 and 18mm lens on a neck strap which was perfect for slinging over a shoulder and using as and when needed. No need for a bag or rucksack, just a lightweight system for an easy day out.

I don't normally shoot as wide as 18mm on a daily basis preferring to shoot around 35mm, but the 18mm is a great focal length to get the most from what you need and for getting plenty in the frame. Stopped down to f/2 the Fuji lens allows sufficient light to get a reasonable shutter speed for inanimate objects and on the whole it's a great lens as a day to day shooting lens.

Anyway, enough rambling, here's a few photos from the visit.
