Spending a day with just my 50mm....

If you know me, you know I have my choice of lenses. Typical for me, as that is how I am with my shoes, purses or anything else.  When it comes to my lenses, each one has such a special purpose for me!  I will never believe that I could be a better photographer from the equipment that I use - and that does include the lenses.  There is an ease with having the equipment available - and I certainly do love my camera body very much... but regardless, when I want to grab the photo that is pulling at me in the moment, I never think "oh, I'd better not even try for it because I have the wrong lens on."  No - I grab my camera and do my best to capture the shot I am after.  More times than not, I will have my 50mm on my camera -- and yes, some of the reason could be that it is one of my shorter lenses, and a little less in weight than most of the others... but it also makes me work harder sometimes for the photo that I am after.  I am moving forward - or maybe backing up to get just to where I want to be.  I love the power with this lens.  You know that little game "if you were stranded on a deserted island and you could only have 1 thing, what would it be?" (or something like that!!) - well, if I were stranded on a desert island and I could only choose one lens for my camera no doubt it would be my 50mm.
