Fiddling with 50mm Canon prime lens!

I am Ziren Wang, a student from Raffles Institution, Singapore. I seek to contribute to the very community that introduced me to photography - my school. I frequently and delightfully use my photography skills to serve my school and my community, as a member of the photographic society.

A Ming vase can be well-designed and well-made and is beautiful for that reason alone. I don't think this can be true for photography. Unless there is something a little incomplete and a little strange, it will simply look like a copy of something pretty. We won't take an interest in it. (John Loengard, "Pictures Under Discussion")

To take a photograph is to participate in another person's mortality, vulnerability, mutability. Precisely by slicing out this moment and freezing it, all photographs testify to time's relentless melt. (Susan Sontag, "On Photography")

You have found a nice point of focus and used the depth of field to good advantage.

I am just back home exploring some autumn scene with my Canon 50mm prime (1.8). A georgeous lens for this kind of shots even if the minimum distance is a bit long sometimes. A fine shot here!
