Went for a little walk yesterday with the 5D and 35L combo, and I'm very pleased now. I hadn't really had a chance to use the 35L previously so I'm glad to be in a place where I'm eager to shoot. Yesterday, I shot everything from the hip. The only time I looked through the viewfinder was walking out the front door to make sure the centre focus point was selected. It's a bit of a gimmick but I like the results for their ad-hoc quality.

Good composition and colors, but I really don't like the tilts. I know it's tough to line things up when you shoot from the hip, but the tilt doesn't bring anything to the image.

I understand the tilts aren't to all tastes, and usually I'm anti tilts, but I don't mind it here. It's hard to fit someone in the frame without tilting when you're just walking towards them hoping the focus is tracking as it should and guessing the framing!

I love the second one with the girl in the white skirt. I saw someone else had done something like this on a trip to NYC. While I'm not a tilt fan, I think it works in an urban walkabout. Besides, Sydney is a great walking city, so the opportunities I'll bet are wonderful. Hmmm... this is something for me to try in DC in the near future.
