What strikes me most about this image (apart from their love of apples) and why I like it so much is the tight crop that captures the essence of the moment, which was due in part from the chosen focal length and my limited mobility.
The 50 mm lens 46.8 degree field of view comes closest in perspective to what our brain can properly interpret excluding all the peripheral blur that the eyes take in within its 106 degree angle of view. It is a lens that is very popular with street photographers primarily because it requires a certain close range contact to be effective is the only way I know to put it. As the photographer Tina Modotti once said "you've got to feel it in your gut" to know when you are close enough.
The 50 mm theme will be revisited in this blog.
