不完全 【ふかんぜん】 (adj-na,n) imperfect; incomplete; faulty; defective;
Ironically enough this word used to be my "online handle" a few years back. I liked the sound of it, I liked the idea of it. Part of the reason for all of that was I didn't take to warmly to the idea of perfection. There is a lot of drive in every day life to push forward this concept of perfection. To me the the lack of flaws in a person was never the utmost image of beauty, instead it was those imperfections that brought out the beauty and character of an individual.
I guess in time this also took up to be a facet of the style of photography I enjoyed most. To me the draw in the style I want to bring forth to represent what I shoot is not clean and flawless, it is beauty in the natural.
Which, by the way, is a little ironic with the idea I still harbor that I need gear that brings me razor sharp images.
I'm glad I got a chance to use this older lens on Saturday, it helped bring me back to some of my core roots. I maintain that it's still essential to have range and to be able to deliver on a wide variety of situations and environments. In the end all those styles compliment each other and help move your style forward.
