UCSD (especially for San Diego), is a particularly photogenic place. Obviously, since the pandemic hit there has been a big shift in my personal photography from model stuff to urban landscapes, architecture, and minimalism. I really want to get back to photographing people, but I have enjoyed stepping back from it for a bit. In addition to discovering I liked this sort of photography more than I thought I did – I also have discovered that the experience is even more Zen and rewarding with manual focus lenses. This was the first time I did a photo walk with both the Tokina 20mm f/2, and the Voigtlander 40mm f/1.2. I’m finding this 20/40mm combo to be really awesome. And as I was typing this I was thinking it would be cool to have a 60mm manual focus with macro capabilities… damnit brain.
