Eos 6D in the streets of South Africa...
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
I liked that guy, very cool. Looking forward to more of these.
thanks Neil! I am on my way to Capetown and it will take me 6 days to get there...i am stopping at every little small town on the way...so there is going to be lots more images like this!
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....
