A fern growing on the church wall at St. MAry;s church , Arnold

Shot with a vintage Jupiter 11A 135mm f4 lens lens from 1972.

The Jupiter 11A is a Russian prime lens built in the KOMZ Kazan Optical Mechanical Factory, 435 miles due East of Moscow, The lens is a copy of a Carl Zeiss "sonnar" design. Some people argue it is as good as the said Carl Zeiss design.

Hand held at somewhere between f4 and f6

Nice doesn't cut it - this really is super sharp and look at the texture of the concrete. Such an easy fav:))
