For some reason I chose to take only my Meyer Optic Gorlitz Orestor 135mm f2.8 this particular afternoon. I was experimenting with focal lengths. I saw this facial expression as I was sat on the beach with the guys and knew if I got up to move further back for a better composition, I would miss the moment... I was able to take four or five changing expressions over about a minute. It's true to say that, I do still have a tendency to sometimes be a bit to close to the subject. It's a Fill the frame thing... Still happy though, so was printed large for a 3' x 2' frame.

135mm on a crop-frame is a loooong lens! I won't carp about the very tight crop: it's the expression and the gritty processing that make this so very impressive.
