Spring Hope!

And in an unsurprising turns of event, I suck at naming blog posts. Nevertheless, I am so happy about the photos in this collection! In this city the government tends to plant these seasonal blossoms in different areas, and I had been scouting a few for photography purposes--the problem was that it was still winter and all the flowers sections had this little net on top to protect them so they could actually bloogm... which was not ideal for photos.

Anyways, I eventually found this one (I wanted uprple/pink flowers to get the effect you see here) and snapped about ~500 shots in ~30-40 minutes. They looked great! I don't have any before and after, I was too lazy for that, but I honestly love these.

Cookie Tamed a Griffin

Well, if we are talking about it chronologically, she really didn't tame it now, because I have had this griffin doll for years even before relocating overseas. It was gifted to me, and I added the wings. 2018, to be more correct as evidenced here. Damn, time flies (quite literally, for this winged fellow over here).

So, I went to the park and popped Cookie around with this one (who lacks a name, or I forgot the name I had given him) on different trunks. It was quite funny because there was this terrible wing (this city is awfully windy), but it moved the feathers and it actually looked quite natural! I used the Minolta 50mm for this photoshoot (I had to clean it, it was shameful) at f2, which is why the bokeh is not perfectly circular. Anyways, let's fly!

Bookworm Kanon?

Hello all! I hope you are doing well. Today I have a silly posts with a lot of photos, but the truth is I am quite enthralled by this lens--Jupiter 9 85mm f2. A lovely vintage one from 1962 that uses a very weird mount, and is a bit difficult to focus, but that takes stunning photos! I honestly love the "air" or... "identity" this lens gives to the photos. Also, I didn't know what props to use so here you go:
