Four shots.

Circa 2006.

F Heart K, Sabrina’s Fancy Shoes, Spring Clean, Hollow.

Four shots with my first DSLR, the Pentax *ist D.

These images are all from my second photoblog, circa 2006.

I chose this particular camera because at the time, it was smaller, lighter, and easier to hold than any of the other brands.

It still works. And it’s in really good condition. Really. It looks like new.

It’s a great little camera. And I still have a good selection of lenses for it.

Offbeat.

Fun and funky lenses.

It must be my love of toy cameras that compels me to experiment with offbeat lenses on my mirrorless cameras.

I have a good collection of weird add-ons, from Lensbabies to C-mount CCTV lenses and I recently added an Olympus M.Zuiko 9mm ƒ/8.0 Fisheye Body Cap Lens to use on my m43 boxes. It was a little more than I wanted to spend, but reviews and sample images I found were convincing.

Pictured above are are four from my stash of curious and weird lenses… Olympus 9mm ƒ/8 Fisheye Body Cap, Thingyfy Pinhole Pro S, Pentax 25mm ƒ/1.4 CCTV, Lensbaby Composer Pro/Sweet 35.
