Photo Friday: We Have Our Heading

While out and about last Saturday, I spotted this compass and snapped a quick photo.

Get Your Bearings

Get your bearings, people

I would love to have had some lights and creamy bokeh in the background, but we can’t have everything in our shots, can we? I also went to black & white because the colors in the photo were actually very drab and boring.

I knew I’d be on my feet and walking a lot that day, so I just went with the 50mm prime for the day. It’s light, travels easy, and I like its focus (especially compared to my 18-55mm Canon kit lens—bleah). There were times I could have used the flexibility of a zoom, but the prime did its job and it’s become my favorite of my three lenses.
