Ruby posing on the Basket Ball Court (Konica AR Hexanon 40mm f1.8 vintage lens)

This is Ruby Ruby posing on a Basket Ball / Five a Side Court in Arnold

I shot this using a Konica AR Hexanon 40mm f1.8 vintage lens. I got the lens from a charity shop in Lincoln back in January , when I went to watch Bolton play Lincoln City

At f2.8 the lens has rendered a beautiful photo of my favourite elegant lady. I think the lens is a keeper for sure !

I've cloned a pillar / post out on the back fence . Not very well I may add !

It's a lovely pose and I like all the tones of b&w.

Such a lady-like pose !

Ha, you needn't have drawn out attention to the cloned post. It becomes the first thing we look for! Ruby is looking most elegant.

Oh those ears! You have the most lovely poser close by whenever you need to have a shot. B&w is perfect, here.

Ruby looks lovely!

With a face like this no-one notices her background:)

I'm encouraged by your enthusiasm of all things vintage, and how to get them to work via an adapter with your camera. This shot just goes to show what can be achieved, well done Phil.

You got a good lens in Lincoln... hope you got a good football result too!

@lostphojo I also got a Carl Zeiss 135mm f3.5, a beautiful lens, but the focus ring would not go beyond about 2m (I didn't know that when I bought it). I googled how to fix it and almost did, but snapped a bit of plastic controlling the aperture switch and it ended up stuck on f3.5 , but focussing OK !!! Oh and we lost 5-1

@gamelee cheers lee for your support
