    I recently went on a road trip starting from Grand Canyon => Sedona => Sequoia => King's Canyon => Yosemite => San Francisco => Big Sur => Home.

    It was a pretty interesting trip and I have to admit, I feel like I've leveled up a bit in my Photography skills (went from a level 7 to maybe a solid 12 now). The trip really helped to let me figure out what types of photography I really enjoy and which I don't enjoy as much.

    I'm going to split my travel pics with what I would consider street photography.

    My thoughts and feelings on street photography:
    1. I love it.
    2. Scary as heck. Keeps my heart pounding.
    3. I used the 50mm equiv lenses for most of my past street photography. I wanted to experiment with a longer lens. Most of these were shot with the Oly 45mm.
    4. I placed priority on trying to get the scene above getting critical focus.

    My thoughts on the 45mm for street photography:
    1. A good lens to use if you really want to do street photography but you're too scared to do it with a shorter lens. It'll help you get used to going for candid shots. I probably won't use anything longer than the 45mm though.
    2. This lens is a performer. Don't regret this purchase one bit. Wish it came in black though...

    PS. I also have some pictures up on my Instagram @AbePak if you want to look at just phone pics.
