Long time ago, I was around 16, I bought my first camera. An asahi pentax spotmatic with a super-Takumar 55mm 1.8 lens.
I was young and didn't know... didn't appreciate.
Fast forward (in more than one way) till today. I ran into an article singing praise of vintage lenses and the takumar 55mm. I have a converter m42 to a-mount so here's the result from two test-shots. very sharp and the colors give me a vintage feel..

@Jondor beautiful. I miss traditional photography so much.

@deerbard These two were digital, but with a vintage lens.
Some of my other photo's here are more traditional and film. It's a beautiful time where one can mix and match ;-)

@Jondor I miss even digital but with actual dslr. I abandoned mine about three years ago.
