I don’t change lenses all the time. I like to keep my lenses for some days, like to get into their way of seeing. I am in no way a fanatic. If it’s a zoom, I use it as a zoom, if it’s a prime, I zoom with my feet. I do have a slight preference for fast primes though. At the moment it’s the Sigma 20/1.8, just because I had it still mounted from yesterday’s gloomy, rainy afternoon.
The first image for today is a composition that I kinda like, although I liked it even more with two people, a man and a woman, crossing in the background. I had waited for the perfect moment, all positions were exactly how they needed to be, the image was balanced and … focus was all wrong. I wanted it on the bicycle but got it on the background. Oh well.
The Image of the Day was shot some minutes earlier on a street corner with a flower shop. They sell tiny pumpkins for decoration, but of course when you get in very near, everything becomes big.
