Blue Is The Colour...

Yesterday I went for a walk down Steve Biko str and Voortrekker str in Pretoria North...




I wanted to test my new Canon Eos 6D and my new Canon Ef 85mm F1.8 lens. I recently bought the Eos 6D as a replacement to my Eos 5Dmk2. A few weeks later I also got the Eos Ef 85mm f1.8 lens. I always wanted a fast short telephoto not just for portrait photography but I wanted something that will capture facades and people from across the street. Meaning when I stand on the pavement and I photograph across the street to the other side I wanted a lens quite a bit narrower than my 'standard' 35mm or 40mm lens. The 85mm gives subtle compression, is small not to attract too much attention and is sharp right out into the corners.
