Took this image in the local Botanic Gardens using my Minolta 35-70mm zoom for the first time, must say I’m quite impressed with the lens especially as it only cost £9.99p.

20-20 Vision

10-07-19

20-20 vision, I’m not sure if I have ever had that level of eyesight, it’s about 14-15 now, the joy’s of getting older. I bought a couple of lenses from that auction site for my Minolta X700 film camera, couldn’t resist, they were from a charity seller (excuse) The lenses were a Minolta MD 35-70mm f3.5 zoom and Minolta MD 50mm f1.7. Took them with me on a couple of walks last week to test them out.

The image above reminded me of what my eyesight is like if I haven’t got my contacts in or my glasses on. I deliberately focused on the foreground with the lens wide open to see what the bokeh was like in the background.
