From Russia with Love

Seeing how I recently received a Jupiter 8 50mm/f2 lens made in Russia.  The lens is 51 years old and still a performer.  The first image is just of a bush thing near my condo and I had the lens wide open.  I haven’t had to manual focus a lens in a while mostly using native lenses on cameras so this was the first shot.  While not perfect look at that bokeh!  The second shot is just a playing with it and I liked the umbrella color just being out there in the sun and the shadow cast.  Neither image is what I call photographic master pieces but just shows what a beautiful lens this is.  I have another Russian lens but I’m waiting for the adapter to come in so I can play with it.  I am planning on getting a couple more to round out the “Russian Collection”.

  1. Liked your picture. The little sprig of brush in the winter and the table with the bright red umbrella seems out of place in the wintertime. Can not believe people actually sit outside when it is this cold. The colors is nice. Your Russian lens did a good job.
