I recently got a new 50mm lens for my Leica and I am almost done with The Joy Luck Club. The book is so fantastic. I was shooting with a 90mm lens on the Leica and well it is kind of a pain to focus with. I had to step back like 3 feet for everything I was trying to focus on. I personally prefer prime lenses and getting closer to your subject rather than having to back away from it. I think it gives the image a more intimate feeling.
I am also glad to finally have time to read. I have a rather large stack of books I have collected from working at a bookstore. I seriously think I bought a book every time I went in to work. I cannot wait to finish this one and start on the next one.
I hope everyone is having a good Tuesday.
