Fast glass: Why they call it a nifty fifty

Holiday lights take an otherwise ordinary shot into another dimension when shot with my old Nikon 50mm f1.4 lens, shot wide open. I captured this slice of holiday happy just before the family sat down to dinner yesterday at our family gathering in Bellevue. I like it so much that I’m heading to the Bellevue Botanical Garden tonight with my Glidetrack to have a go at shooting some of the over-the-top lights there, to use for who-knows what: backgrounds, abstract video compositing, whatever. Or maybe just because it’s pretty.
