Candid street portraits at ~85mm

Since I’ve been thinking about adding the Fuji 56mm lens (85mm in full frame terms) to my kit, I’ve been trying to shoot with that focal length lately – either with my manual Pentax 50mm lens, or by using the 18-55 zoom lens at the 55 end. So far… I’m not sure. It’s a focal length that I have to force myself to use, unless I really can’t move (in which case I would be using a zoom anyway), and when I have it on my camera, I tend to want something shorter and more versatile. I never used my Canon 50mm much either, it’s just too long to be very useful most of the time. It’s fun to change things up and challenge yourself, though.

I didn’t quite nail the focus on this one, but I liked it anyway.
