looking at an ayrshire sky


looking at an ayrshire sky, originally uploaded by Pig Sty Avenue.

I've realised that the Soviet lenses just don't do sharp, so I've just got to make the most of not-sharp, probably until I can afford an M and a several hundred quid lens to go with it.

This is the Jupiter 8, and of course the Leica IIIf. Fuji Neopan 1600 developed in Perceptol 1+3 using the 20+5+5+5 minute methodology.

Many of the shots on the roll are a tad overexposed. Mostly I was at 1/75 or 100 - at f2. So I could go to 1/200 indoors, or even 500 with some daylight through the window.
