Georgie Kirkcaldie completed my workshop in May 2004.  At the end of the field trip morning session, she found a bargain second hand camera with a standard 50mm lens in a shop in Central.  I had been teaching Georgie's class that a 50mm lens usually has a very large maximum aperture which allows for very shallow depth of field.  Also, the angle of view of a 50mm lens renders a perspective relationship in the photograph which approximates that of the human eye.  In other words, a 50mm lens shows things quite close to how we really saw them.  The large maximum aperture also permits the successful capture of images in lower light levels than was possible with Georgie's zoom lens.
Georgie went on holiday to Cambodia recently and brought back these wonderful images that she captured through her newly acquired 50 mm lens.  These photos show an intimacy with the subject that one doesn't usually see in photos taken with common consumer zoom lenses.
