Random Ramblings X: flektogon fuckin' 20 / The Shelter

My excitement over old glass continues, heck, even grows as I got my first Carl Zeiss glass. One of the cooler lens: 

Flektogon 20mm/2.8

Damn, I've never been so excited about any glass before, I'm not exactly sure what's about it (beside great optical quality and very short focusing distance which I can see would make it a great portrait lens and the fact that for it's age it must have really been a pinnacle of optical engineering) but it has a certain mojo that's..yeah, it makes me feel something and it makes me want to go and shoot with it. Like an original fuji x100, that had it too.

Anywas, see for yourself, I shot this with it:

getting to know the feel of new/old lens and preparing myself for my upcoming bigger piece which would have some similar themes in it but I want to explore them (and myself) a little deeper. But I like this one too. It's a little better than the one I shot before, and that's the most important thing.

Okay, more to come.

Thanks for stopping by, I hope you're well
