Reiley – December 30 2009, originally uploaded by seyDoggy. I pulled out my 1984 50mm f1.7 Minolta lens earlier this week and have kept it on ever since. I love that old lens. I love how at f1.7 you can shoot with just about any available light and get a decent shot. This one is a nice, contemplative shot of my son who is with us for the holidays. He’s really growing up fast.
