People grow older and carry their past with them. I am glad my memory is bad… Today I’m a busy person. I wish I had some time to myself. I am not complaining, I have managed ok, got a job, a house, a car, a computer, an ipad, and all sort of modern toys. I waste more time in traffic queues and with people I can’t stand than I would like to admit. I keep promising myself to change all this someday … I am still such a pretty woman, with myopic big eyes, curly grey hair and tight jeans. I surely deserve it.

I live in a messy home, with lots of dust lying in every corner, books and newspapers pilling up almost up to the ceiling, clothes waiting to be washed and ironed, and lots of decorating ideas waiting to be put in place. Someday I will be organized, or leave this place I don’t want to call home.

This is my Present.

30 Years Old and Sharp as Hell

30 Years Old and Sharp as Hell

the lens, not the spirits

Better with B l a c k M a g i c

(in a bit of a rush today after spending last night in CT, with 400 miles on car and body – I want to post one picture a day!)

This is a photo taken with the 30 year old 50mm F1.8 I acquired last weekend (shot at f4 here). Not only is the build quality wonderful, but the sharpness is exquisite. At f1.8 it is only slightly less sharp (the grain of the paper label is less pronounced). The 28mm E series lens I obtained with the same set of lenses cannot compare in terms of sharpness, unfortunately.

I do suggest looking at the original resolution:

Hopewell Township, New Jersey, USA
