ISO 1600 @ 1/50
Pentax Super Takumar 50mm f1.4 @ f1.4
More work with the Pentax 50mm and available (or natural) light – the plan had originally been to take advantage of a snow day to get out and about. The “snow” was really freezing rain and I hoped to capture wintry scenes and ice-laden flora. Instead, I started cleaning the basement (see yesterday’s post referencing the state of the basement). When I finally emerged, the freezing rain had turned to plain rain and wind. I’m not made of sugar, but I don’t have good weather protection for the camera, so… plan scratched.
Instead, more poking around the house looking for subjects… we have a set of dishes that belonged to my great grandmother and keep a few pieces out along with an antique bell, pie plate, and flour scoop. The contrast of the metals and ceramics seemed like a nice opportunity.
