50mm Friday

The road is long

Great Hobbies is opening a fourth location on October 29th in Mississauga, Ontario, so I’ve been on the road implementing most of their IT.  The trip started with a 21 hour, 41 minute drive from Prince Edward Island to Brampton.  Coincidentally, my family and I moved to Prince Edward Island in 1990 from Brampton.  The rental house is less than 10 kilometers from the old house.  I hope to get there before going to the airport today.

Having spent almost 24 hours in a van, this 50mm Friday is inspired by the road.

Introducing 50mm Friday

It’s 50mm Friday!  The *FIRST* 50mm Friday.

The idea behind 50mm Friday is to select a photograph from my library taken with the least expensive lens a person can buy.  It may also be the most challenging and rewarding lens to use.  First, there’s no zoom, so you have to “be the zoom”.  It’s rewarding because you have to work a little harder to make th photograph.

This is a photograph of a dew-covered spider web, 50mm, F2.8, 1/160s ISO400.
