The excitement is almost palpable. Frustratingly, no names, dates, or details are recorded. It is therefore to be enjoyed purely on an anonymous level.

Tessar Teeth

The Tessar lens design is pretty old. I never heard of a Tessar faster than f/2.8 and many are considerably slower. This was shot using a Carl Zeiss Jena Tessar of 50mm designed for the 42mm screw thread mount common between 1950 and 1980. Secondhand they don't cost much; they handle nicely and are well built of glass and metal. You wouldn't know it from this much-processed photo, but they have good fidelity too.

High Wire Act

Laundry measured in kilobytes, in this case 181. A photograph entitled 'JPEG' posted earlier this year and identical to this save for less black background is 1.2 megabytes. Through the use of wizardry and magic incantations, I have made a thing simultaneously bigger and smaller. I am probably the only member of ipernity who can perform this sorcery. Lens: Nikon Nikkor 50mm f/1.4 AF-D. Camera: Nikon D2Xs.

Cheap Camera Bags

14 Sep 2021 4 3 22
Lens: Chinon 55mm f/1.4. Camera bags: a minority interest. No need to spend a fortune, which is quite possible. After all, it's only a sack, when all's said and done. Yet some are much better than others. Choosing a camera system is child's play compared to finding the ideal camera bag. So many things to consider: size, configuration, colour, material, security, to pad or not to pad, etc.

There is no sound of leather on willow, nor muted applause. The numbers on the board are still; the cups and saucers being readied by the ladies in their summer frocks are but distant memories. Here I gaze around me at the autumn leaves hugging the padlocked pavilion doors and a heavy melancholy descends like a morning mist.
