very interesting post [and pics!].

Thank you

have you got any ideas on why the 23 saw [almost] no use?

Ultimately, most subjects on this trip where static or shot in good light. With the kind of gatherings and activities that I undertook, I wanted to capture friends and family within the context of the situation rather than isolating them with shallow DOF. Social documentary, rather than candid portraiture, so to speak. As a result, the stabilised 15-45 filled in for the 23/2.0 in most situations.

There was also a subconscious/semi-conscious intent to see how well I could do with the 15-45, so that certainly also came into play.
