I don’t usually use my 35mm for street photography because it gives me too wide of a field-of-view, and I like street portraits. We were just buying food from Pudu after collecting my 100mm macro lens and just so happened that the 35mm was attached to my camera. The wider angle gave me a different perspective than usual and forced me to think of more interesting compositions and subjects. The thing about long lenses is that it lets you take a photo of just about anyone or anything without even moving around much since you can pretty reach everything just by standing in one spot.
That last photo there is a little special to me because it sort of marks a personal milestone, that’s why I saved it even though the composition isn’t really that great (chopped off head and everything). What happened was, after I took the shot he started yelling at me about taking photos without permission. Then the nice old man (the one who’s head is disembodied in the frame) tried to calm him down while he continued yelling away. Oh well, I knew this was going to happen some day and I suppose it’s a life experience amirite?
Speaking of which, the coming week is going to be parties and celebrations (Christmas, Winter Solstice and the boo’s birthday) and I’m taking 4 days off from work so yay! Oh, and today is Jason’s birthday so big shout-out to him. Happy Birthday if you’re reading this!
