Before School covid-19: day 322 | US: GA | info | exit

Using the Industar 61 2.8/55, I took a couple of shots of Henry before school this morning, in the available light of the play room window. I love the first expression. It’s an expression that, one, lets me know he’s my son, and, two, shows his developing personality. I’m working on the snark.


These are after school, same lens. In the first, he shows off his new shoes, while he falls asleep apparently, and in the second, he works on a project. It also uses the close-focus adapter to get in there. The third is just nice.


I really do like the Industar 61’s rendering: it might be the most Leica-like of my non-Leica lenses.
