This morning I woke up to thick fog. It didn’t take me long to realize that I had a great photo opportunity to take advantage of. A brief convention got underway in my mind: “Do I shoot on film, or do I grab my digital camera? I’m thinking digital. Okay, what lens do I use? Hmm... it’s damp outside, and I don’t want to use my good Nikkors. I think I’ll go for my cheap 35mm f/1.7 Meike lens.”
It proved to be a good choice. My 35mm Meike isn’t the sharpest lens in the world, a characteristic that’s actually an asset in those cases when I want a bit of softness to emphasize the dreaminess of the fog.
