promises kept

... absolutely delightful watching this elegant gentleman enjoying a lunchtime indulgence in valletta today - gave me a beautiful smile too as he walked away with his prize!

as hoped, this 35mm lens proving to be good for street stuff
Oh friend, this is glorious. Love this wonderful candid. And I want some of that..the icecream, not the man, though I am sure he is a delightful fellow, but... Fav!

Wonderful shot. So that 35mm lens gives you the approximate equivalent of a 50mm lens on a cropped sensor camera?

how wonderful! so clear and crisp!

Love the way he stands out from the background and those lovely ice creams in the cabinet, even in B&W they look very tempting

@steampowered apparently it does that paul - when i asked people for advice on buying this or the 50mm it seemed to be the general consensus that the 35 would work more like a 50mm for my d3001 :o)

Ooohhh, what would I give for a real gelato Italiano now!! You have really captured this scene perfectly...he seems to be so intently focused on his gelato, looks like it is the true highlight of his day! Very well processed and balanced both in terms of the overall scenario and tonality...well done!

Wow, if I am not mistaken this guy is a friend of mine. We had a spell working in the same office. He is from Sliema and I meet him quite often but I will not tell him that he is on 365.

@sangwann you know it crossed my mind that you might dione - he was so well-dressed and charming - i truly hope he wouldn't be offended by this picture - i took one shot and then he gave me a conspiratorial smile as i was stuffing my face with a pastizzi from cordina's too :o)

That's good to hear. I'm saving up to buy a NIKON D3100 like yours, and was thinking of getting the 35mm lens to go with it. How much did you end up having to pay for the lens?
posted March 18th, 2014  
Catherine I love this shot. It is full of emotion / tells a story. I really look forward to following your work!

@stephomy can't remember exactly but around 195 Euro ... I only had the kit lens before so it's different working with no zoom but there is a quality to the pictures :0)
