I love the wide angle look that this lens gives, and definitely want to go more wide angle next time I get a lens. (This particular lens doesn't exactly see eye to eye with my Mark II since it's full frame, but I could make it work at 15-16mm.) It was fun to play around with and get a different perspective on my kiddos playing.
Getting a different perspective is usually a good thing, in photography or whatever. Shaking things up and changing things around makes you see things in a way you might have previously missed. Getting down on the kids' level and opening up my eyes (or my lens) always makes me see them as the precious little people they are.
I realize that these sweet kiddos aren't even mine to keep, but I'm just borrowing them for a time; they're a precious gift I've been entrusted with. With a new perspective comes a renewed sense of how important it is to teach them constantly, be patient with them always, and love them fully. They aren't going to be little forever, but the lessons and the love that I pour out on them now needs to last them a lifetime.
Train up a child in the way he should go, Even when he is old he will not depart from it.
