We never really do anything alone.

- Shot with an m42 mount Auto-Rikenon 55mm f2.8 lens that I picked up for $30 on Ebay a couple years ago. I think this was a kit lens for a Ricoh or Sears model camera.. late 60s / early 70s. I haven’t shot with it much, but I always knew it was a keeper and would be good for black and white photography. It’s usually not very fast handheld, but I’m discovering it can be quite sharp on a tripod.

I own a lot of vintage lenses and I’m always impressed and fascinated by how good the old glass can be. They don’t make ‘em like this anymore.
