With all of the fancy features on today's cameras it is easy to lose sight of the speed of the lens - which is an important part of the photographic process.  Zoom lenses have proliferated leaving the once common f/1.8 a forgotten relic.

I've decided to use my 1.8 lens for a week and see what I could do.

These two images show what is possible with the street lights only.  The fire hydrant made me reflect on the rundown nature of some of the city's areas.  The yellow tree is something we all see when we stroll down the street - the streetlights backlighting the fall colors for a few weeks here.
