The Continental

I was in London a week or two ago, and saw a small group of people waiting for a tube train. I instantly assessed their clothing and facial characteristics and determined that they were German.

There was a certain continental élan that convinced me.

It was time to try out my little Panasonic GF1 with the 45mm Olympus lens. On a micro four-thirds sensor, the 45mm lens is a 90mm equivalent. In other words it makes a good portrait lens for this kind of shot.

So I took a couple of photos and then moved closer to check on those Continental accents.

They were English – not German or from anywhere in Continental Europe at all.

Ah well..
