zeiss 35mm f1/4 distagon lens

This isn’t graffiti by any stretch of the imagination, but the title felt better to me than what this really is… street art. Gorgeous colors. And I love the composition with the front end of the classic car sitting off the right… got lucky on that one!

I shot this with what many people believe to be the classic “street” photography focal length, 35mm. I have to say that even though I think the Zeiss 35mm f1.4 lens that I used for this photo is an amazing piece of equipment, I’m struggling to feel comfortable with the perspective of 35mm. I’m not sure why, but 99% of the photos I take at 35 just don’t feel right to me. I always feel like the 35 is just a little too wide, or not quite wide enough. I love 50mm, and I love 25/28, but I just can’t get in the groove with 35.

Does anyone else have any experience with a 35mm prime? Love it? Hate it? Rather use a 50mm?
