A rather long and rambling post about two visits to the local bay for the sunrise last weekend.
On Saturday morning I took a large camera bag with a trio of large, autofocus weather sealed zoom lenses. On Sunday morning I took a small camera bag with a trio of small, manual focus prime lenses.
The trio of small, manual focus prime lenses is the back to basics kit I put together after an accident last year left me with restricted movement in my right shoulder and a weaker right arm. My arm and shoulder is now as good as it’s going to get and most of the time I could be carrying and using the big, autofocus zoom lenses.
Except, on Sunday morning I realised that I preferred using my back to basics kit. I don’t miss the convenience of being able to zoom a lens to get the composition I want. I prefer the simplicity of manually focusing and setting the aperture on the lens.
