One Takumar to rule them all...

well, not really - but "snowed in" and a little bored so what do I do?  Grab the old Pentax M42 50mm 1.4

Super Takumar 50mm f1.4, canon 5D... this gear setup is like me, old - but still can produce good results if handled properly

and have some fun...

I was looking around my equipment, and came to the realization that I seem a bit preoccupied with 50mm focal length, although I am not sure why.  I look back at my LR4 library, and a disproportionate amount of the photos (some 37%) were shot at or very near 50mm...

I guess I'm developing a style, 50mm, high contrast deep saturation seems to be me... I also noticed I tend to lean to the dark side with my photos, not sure if it's lack of ability or my eye's preference.
