Having taken the 35/2 street walking recently I decided to take the new 20mm for a wander… as it happens I was actually on my way around the camera stores looking for a good deal on a Nikon 16-35/4 – which btw I did eventually purchase during this session so it was definitely a good day out 🙂
On the way I tried my hand at some extremely wide angle street work with the 20mm. I think this lens is just too wide for general people style street photography – you basically have to be on top of someone to get them to fill any reasonable portion of the frame – but it does seem to suit my passion for street architecture. Although judging by the images I’ve posted today you’d think all I do is get close to the ground and look up 🙂
Note: These images (especially the wider shots) look much better when larger – so click any of the images below to see larger versions in an inline overlay slideshow gallery viewer.

and of course the old faithful, especially with an ultrawide, the Queen Victoria Building – here are two two takes with the massive Christmas tree they have in there at the moment – not sure myself which one I prefer right now – probably the later?
