It was time to say goodbye to my good ol’ 50mm f/1.8. The nifty fifty as some call it. It was my favourite lens. Two years, it had served me well. Astounding finesse in low light, beautiful bokeh, nice build quality and reliable. Small enough to take anywhere and the perfect length for portraits.

But alas, it was time for it to move on… onto new and better things. It went to a good family. It will help capture new beginnings for them. A newborn. It’s favourite subject. Serve them well good friend.
