Symmetrical Bus Stop (vintage lens shot)

I took a vintage lens (SMC Pentax-M 28mm F3.5) on a walk around the Jubilee Campus at Nottingham University.

The campus is on the site of the former Raleigh Bikes Factory, which once provided employment to almost 12,000 people

It is a beautiful campus with some amazing architecture.

This is a bus stop outside the Exchange Building which is part of the Business School. I love the symmetry and shapes. Do i need a person in the shelter to tell the story?


Anyway the Pentax lens is a fine lens, well respected in the Pentax community and quite hard to find too . I've had it for 12 months and not really used it that often ., perhaps I should given the quality of this image

Nice capture! Good to use your lens again!!

Phil, the symmetry is amazing - presented great in mono. I'm just wondering how many lenses you have now......

Oh now that made me nostalgic! I had a Raleigh 20, still one of my all time favourite bikes. Enjoying the symmetry here.
