My never ending conundrum...
Which lens to take on a one-lens excursion.
Okay, so you might be thinking that conundrum is a bit of strong language... I mean it is just one excursion... and typically not to outer Mongolia so it's not like I can't make that excursion again with a different lens.
But... can I make THAT excursion again... really?
I shoot candid almost exclusively.
I don't do posed. Have I mentioned that before - perhaps 1,000,000 times or so?
What is going on at THIS moment is NOT what will be going on at THAT moment... ever... anywhere... forever.
So - which lens will best serve me TODAY... THERE... THEN?
That was my 'conundrum' when I popped over to our band's car wash fundraiser... (public event - obviously!)
I do like my 55-300.
I do want to see what that can do.
Is the suspense killing you?
Oh, ok... well, it was killing me that day.
Sometimes ya' just gotta' grab and go - because until you do there are no shots to agonize over which lens you SHOULD have taken to shoot them with! ;)
So I took both! ;)
The 14 on my FF and the 55-300 on my Crop...
Hmmmm.... maybe I should have also taken my... ... ... argh!
Okay - time for pictures!
The first 4 - my 55-300mm was the perfect choice...
The next 3 - never would have gotten them if it had not been for the 14mm...
Oh, and why are these all b/w, you ask?
'Cause I just can't get my brain to stop!
I do still process many photos in color, but the more I shoot lately the more I'm drawn back to b/w... maybe a phase... maybe not...
We shall see.
