Recently I picked up a couple of Praktica film SLR's and a few lenses as well as loads of filters and a tripod (and probably more that I've forgot), so I went on Ebay and purchased an adapter to mount M42 mount lenses onto our Olympus E-PL1. From the new but old camera bag I picked out a 28mm F2.8 lens and a polarising filter.
It's been a while since I've used a 100% manual focus lens, I usually only use manual focus when in the dark or if the auto focus/focus point is being fooled. The last time I used a manual focus lens was actually when I created the blog post featuring Laura in black and white.
It took a little getting used to but as the day went on i got a little more comfortable with the operation.
There were some great paintings on the sea defence wall, here's a few.
|This ones my favourite.|
Apparently Jabba is local!?
And for some reason I was drawn to these old metal signs on the wall, I know it sounds a bit weird but I knew it would make a great photo and personally i really like it.
On another note we also visited Boston in Lincolnshire, don't worry we wont be doing it again for a while. There's an impressive looking church there; St Botolph's, this is a different way of looking at it.
Thanks for looking.
