Why I Choose to Shoot with an Old, Broken 50mm Lens

I had been relying on an 18-55mm lens, which is sort of an entry level zoom.  As the only lens I owned, it served me well.  However, on some advice from a friend who encouraged me to shoot manual and to move toward using a 50mm lens if I could get my hands on one, I began to use the 50.  Thus began a beautiful relationship.

Tehachapi Frost

Enjoyed a beautiful Thanksgiving in Tehachapi.  Took a walk with Nathan.  Incredible frost on the scrub oak.  Mom called it hoarfrost, when the wind moves the frost to one side of the branch.  Or is it whorefrost?  Seems unlikely.
