From Gerald R. Lucas

Henry Reading

A couple of days ago, I had an idea for a mini photo shoot with the Pentax 67 📷 and Henry. I wanted to take some real shots with the Takumar 3.5/55, so I grabbed some props, and we headed to the backyard. I’m glad he was game, and he really looks into this edition of The New Yorker. I used Kodak Portra 400 🎞.


The Tak 3.5/55 is a pretty nice lens, though I really don’t know how much I’ll use it. It’s big and heavy, and while the images are nice, it doesn’t have that magical quality of the Takumar 2.4/105. Still, it’s nice to have in the arsenal.
