I always had this weird feeling that lenses in the '50's (in 35mm terms....) seemed slightly off to me---sorta "tight". I didn't know why, but the few times I used something nearer 40, the better it "felt" to me visually. I could never explain it, and people I mentioned this to looked at me funny....

Interesting. My first (1963-67 IIRC) 35mm camera had a 45mm fixed lens. The number of times I found myself cropping really hard made me realise that I'm more an 85mm kind of guy.

Every photograph is an abstraction from reality.
Most people are more interested in the picture than the image.
