From today's park walk via the Sony/Techart/Sonnar rig. Maybe I should start a series called Unnecessary Signage. (The park rangers did a lotta good work over the winter, though, like clearing out saplings and tall brush from grassy areas and so making wildflowers happier.)

Ambiguous traffic light ahead.

Probably the last one I can squeeze out of my little rainy afternoon trip to the old power station. Well, I was only there for about an hour, and never got out of the car.

A fine shot, Rob.

Thanks, Russ, I think it is a site that would really fit in well with your old prairie relics interests; human constructs beyond their time...

I'm not sure how the peculiar, repeated fence shapes in the upper part got there; I kinda suspect it had something to do with freak light reflecting off the surfaces of the individual elements in the lens.

I hope I didn't post it before as part of the power station shoot of the other week.

Well, it's certainly mysterious.

And the fence pattern adds to the mystery.

A pair of tiny critters from today's park walk. Also saw a pair of orioles…very unusual around here. Just as unusual as the chickadee sitting still long enough for me to take three whole frames!

A tale of two lenses. The first is a Zeiss Jena 85/2 Sonnar in Leica Thread Mount, the second a Leica 75/2.4 Summarit. The Zeiss is likely a late 1940s lens assembled from WWII-era components while the Leica was made in 2016. Photos via a Sony A7iii + Techart Pro AF adapter for M mount lenses. Both lenses wide open at minimum focus, 90 & 75cm respectively, with a little additional extension from the Techart. Both photos cropped (not much) for near-identical framing and also processed in iOS Affinity Photo close to identically.

IMO there's very little in it. The Leica has a bit more resolution & snap while the Zeiss has more focal length & speed. Neither impedes anyone from taking a compelling photo nor is capable of turning sows' ears into silk purses.

(I took the two critter pics above with the Zeiss Jena lens.)
