Picture a world

Most of my pictures nowadays are fully manual, even the focus. This is because I don't like to take pictures in auto, and because the lens I now use is not actually made for digital cameras, so it doesn't have autofocus. The only disadvantages are when I take pictures of people it's harder to get really good focus in the pictures (since I always shoot with f/2), and it takes some time to change the settings on the camera when I move from outside to inside, and I forget that a lot of times. It doesn't help that my friends want to take some snapshots with my camera from time to time, and I have to help with the settings, explain why I have a prime lens, and why it doesn't have autofocus. My favorite lens also is built, as I've said, for a much older camera, and therefore instead of being a 50mm lens as it is on the original camera, it works as a 70mm lens. This makes it a lot harder to take pictures of friends, since I have to stand so far away. 
So because of these reasons, I am now currently saving for a Nikkor 35mm f/1.8 lens.

Fully manual, with the old lens. 

Fully manual, with the same as the one before.

Auto with standard lens that followed with the camera.

I actually love this picture even though I didn't manage to get it in focus!
