From a recent walk on the Santa Barbara Pier.

I’ve been doing a lot of recent shooting with the 17-40mm f/4. It is super sharp and very demanding for street candids. However, it is quite rewarding. First – you must get close. Second, there is no perspective foreshortening / flattening to smooth out the image. I usually shoot somewhat closed down too (this one at f/7.1). I was really happy on this one to get just the right position of her arms and thread. I was draw to the nets laid out and wanted to use them for a slightly wide perspective. She was such an uncommon sight amist the tourists.
