Some more spring 2020. Confined to the house and there's not a lot yet in the garden..


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..

Let's throw one in for the photofail
This is what happens using an very wide angle lens and a suncap (36mm on medium format RB67)

And after this, enough mushrooms for this year.. Around here it more of the same. Time for the trees to color so I can focus on those beautiful autumncolors

And before i forget, two more images with Ilford panf plus 50. I'm still a bit struggling with the dof on a medium format camera (RB67) but the result is presentable..;-)
The second image can be found at

A few hours in two nature reserves with a bunch of mushroom photo's as result. Here's one, the rest can be found at

And now for something completely different...
As I had to get up early this morning (4am) to get my family to the train, I couldn't resist the temptation to try some night-photography afterwards.
Just one result.

A rainy day in Enschede. But even then there are nice shots to be made.
The whole series (oh well, 3 images for now) you can find here:

Yesterday was a beautyful day for photography. Especially closeups of mushrooms and flowers.
For the whole series follow the link..;)
