Shakedown

201512-311

I usually post an article about cross-cultural things in Japanese and photographs in English. A few weeks ago, as readers who understand Japanese know, I wrote a short story of my experience in Otaru, an historic northern town, through the finder of my old camera which was already missed somewhere. It was absolutely good SLR for taking snapshots. The Olympus with a 50mm lens had been a kind of reference for a long time. Now I own a D-SLR. It is much larger than Olympus but easier to use. At least it always captures a image as I looked into.
One of lenses I have used is 13-years-old zoom one and time to time camera reports an error then I have decided to add new one.
Pictures taken with new zoom are here.

先日、小樽での出来事を書いた中で、レンズの画角に少し触れた。単焦点レンズを当たり前のように使っていたのに、ズームレンズに慣れてしまうと単焦点はいささか面倒なレンズでもある。一方で、美しいボケや意識して距離を変えることによる面白さのようなものがあるのも単焦点レンズである。実は古くなったマクロレンズ(前の所有者を含めて20年ほど経過)を買い替えようと思っていたが、これまた古いズームレンズもエラーを出すようになってしまい、やむなくズームレンズの方を買い替えた。標準ズームはあまりに便利でこれがないわけにはいかない。ピントが甘いマクロレンズは、まだしばらく捨てられない。
