Things change.

In my previous (SLR) life, I probably shot fewer than 100 SLR photos  
with a 35mm lens. That's over 30-year period. Realistically, the only  
time I used a 35 was when I pocketed my Olympus XA.

In my rangefinder incarnation, the 35 has become my walk-around lens.  
All of this Week 19's shots were with my CV Nokton 35/1.2.

It's a little heavy, but I like the occasional narrow depth of field.  
(Time to buy a neutral density filter for it.) Must trot out the  
Ultron a little more often to reduce muscle strain;^)

Is shallow depth of field going to become a Photoshop skill with 28  
becoming the new 35 on the M8??

Week 19 offerings:

The Silver Star pulls out from Raleigh.

Priming the happy hour pump, the beer delivery man works his magic.

Couple talk at the bus terminal.

Reading and waiting for the bus.

A patient dog with a distracted owner.

I have no idea what is happening the this kid's head -- a 30-second  
portrait at the Amtrak station.

OBAMART -- an artist takes up a short storefront residence for primary  

Better parking than it appears.

Terrazzo spiral staircase in Raleigh City Hall.
