Eos 6D in the streets of South Africa...
9 months ago

I tested my new Eos 6d and my also new 85mm f1.8 lens in Steve Biko & Voortrekker streets, Pretoria yesterday. I wanted a lens that could shoot across the street and that is also small and sharp right into the corners. This camera & lens combination is fast & silent and just works so well that I did not miss a shot...more of my images  of Steve Biko str. etc here at . . .http://thelazytravelphotographer.blogspot.com/2013/12/blue-is-colour.html

One of the images of South Africa that I missed and have regretted ever since was in Mpumalanga somewhere, one of all those small towns, there was a car mechanic sitting in the dust in front of his shop fiddling with an engine, just like Mr. J.L.B. Matekoni in the No1 ladies detective books. I was too shy to take his photo...........

hi Neil, yes the ones you missed are the ones that stay with you for the rest of your life....I am going on a 6day trip down to Capetown leaving on sunday and I find it takes a day or two to really get into the swing of things and become more comfortable just asking people if you can take their photo....
