The 50mm

Many of you may wonder why we need different lenses.  If you like to take pictures, a good lens selection is imperative.  My current favorite is my 50mm fixed.  Why such a restricted lens you say?  For me, it isn't about capturing what many people deem the correct picture.  I prefer to capture the essence of a picture, something that makes the part stand out more than the whole.  Don't limit your thinking when you take a picture.  Although Parliament is an impressive building, the character really shines through with a closer view.

The sun was setting when this photograph was taken.  I love the relfections and shadows, something I couldn't capture using a normal lens.

We are always looking for that one perfect picture, but the true perfect picture is the one that makes it seem as if that moment in time is happening all over again.
