Nex in the City

I ventured across the harbor for a stroll in town today with a new old lens for my Sony Nex 5N. One thing that makes the Sony great is the wide range of adapters you can get to fit other branded and era lenses. My newly acquired lens is an old 55mm Soviet FED Industar 61. Overall I found it a nice lens to use with good smooth controls and some nice images produced. The Industar 61’s can be a bit hit and miss quality wise, but they are generally a cheap and cheerful purchase.. I did struggle today with the 35mm equivalent of around 80mm – I generally use my GRD IV day in/out with its equivalent 28mm.  All being said, after an initial struggle I came up with some images I was happy with. Street photography is not an area I have practiced enough, so i’ll have to get out there a bit more. Todays image is taken in the lower section of Auckland City. The only post processing being done is a small crop and converting to B&W.
