• Handle.

    I cleaned and lubed my old Rokkor MD 45 f2 today, and it's a very nice sharp lens. It will be even better when I put it back together right and get infinity focus! This is a big crop, about 70%, with some processing. At least it's sharp! Sony NEX5 Mino…

  • Fancy pillar.

    Lovely detail on an old pillar moulding. Sony NEX 5 Carl Zeiss Jena 29 / 2.8

  • Red doors.

    There were some old cars amongst the junk outside this old shed, but it's all been cleared away. I just wonder if there's something wonderful behind the red doors? This Tokina AT-X 80-200 f2.8 is a wonderful lens, I'm generally not a big fan of zoom lens…


  • Hay cutter.

    I've been trying to photograph this old horse drawn hay cutter for ages, but it was behind a jungle of brambles and weeds. At last someone has cut them back. This Tokina AT-X 80-200 f2.8 is a wonderful lens, I'm generally not a big fan of zoom lenses but…

  • Highland Spring.

    "I only buy Highland Spring because its 'still water drawn from organic land' and doesn't have any chemicals in it or impact on our environment. I'm also a lazy bastard and couldn't possibly carry my empty bottle home, so I'll place it carefully in this t…

  • Bench.

    I took a 300mm lens out to get better pictures of the coot chicks, and it's a bit of an odd lens, a Chinon 300 f5.6, quite slow, but optically OK. And it's a compact light lens, I like it. This was taken in deep shade, on a monopod. Sony NEX5 Chinon MC…

  • Behind the railings.

    This Clubman 24mm is one of the many cheap wide angle lenses sold for film SLR's over the years, many were sold in stores under their own brand name. Most were average, but some are very good, like this Clubman which is also found as Tefnon, and is made b…
