Beautiful day to combine

Just a great day to combine the love of my MR2 and taking photographs. I am fully aware they lack artistic depth, but that does not reduce my enjoyment in taking them.

I think This works better in B+W than the colour one below

Watermead

Well; for a change, I went walk about with the cam rather than drive about.

Some random pics from the day. Had set cam to DNG+jpeg fine and jpeg was set to in cam B+W.

50mm Bokeh shootout

From a post on a car forum I visit, someone asked if I had direct comparrison shots of the different look, feel, taste and texture, or Bokeh  of the various lenses I had mentioned. No. was the answer, But quite intigued myself. So whilst out n about stopped off and took some pics. Set tripod up to maintain perspective and angle. Light was very flat. Whilst may not have helped. (not sure)

So the lenses in question are the Summar (1936), Summitar, Summicron (collapsible) Elmer-M (collapsible), Canon F1.4 in LTM and a 7Artisans F1.1. DOH! forgot to bring the Taylor Hobson Anastigmat.
I mention the age of the Summar as it just tickles me that an 83 year old lens still works in itself and mounted to a modern digital camera. Marvellous.

(note to self, how on earth did I end up with 6, 50mm lenses) make that 7.

Apologies for the iffy exposures. Not paying attention. And straight off the chip as normal.
