Thanks Den's brother! I have just got a new lens to play with. A lens, had my love of photographs stretched to real cameras, say 15 rather than just 10 years ago, that I would probably already be familiar with. But I am of a generation of photographers of which many have never owned a prime lens. It is a very small thing on the front of a D100, but then it just does the one job. I guess the theory is that while only doing that, it should at least do it rather well.

That is the idea anyway. I will test that later on at some almost but not entirely random gig at a shabby bar on Beverley Road. It will be interesting - I do like taking pictures in the dark and up to now that has meant a combination of 1000ASA, holding my breath and sheer luck. And I do love the tiny depth of field thing that f1.8 creates, like being able to cut out all those things you don't want to really see. Which once again confirms to me that taking pictures is not about what is actually there in front of you, but rather which bits of it you like.

Oh, a bit like real life then.

about me

Weeks and months turn into years and who knows what surprises a new day will bring? As shelves fill with more songs, dust collects, memories accumulate and we pass through the lives of others, sometimes pausing, sometimes pulling up a chair, sometimes moving on. Thinking that tomorrow is going to be like yesterday. What do we know? I just like words and pictures, so why make excuses for collecting those either? But some things will never change, the sad songs will always be the best ones.
