When one door closes …

When one door closes, another opens; but we often look so long and so regretfully upon the closed door that we do not see the one which has opened for us. (Alexander Graham Bell)

After having broken my left wrist, it took some frustrating time before I saw new options for photographing with my canon 5D. The doctor does not allow me to hold more than a coffe cup with my left hand for six long weeks. My camera is too heavy. So I have to use it with my right hand only. Not easy while used to change the settings all the time. To photograph in full automatic mode is no option for me. Today I used my lightest lens, the 50 mm. I wanted to do some photography with wide aperture using manual focus. But no, it only was pain to move the focus ring. What now?

Ok, no focus then. I did the settings, aperture automatic with f 1.4, ISO 100, distanse 80cm, that’s all. Now I only had to find my motives and make a composition.

Easy and challenging at the same time!
