Default Fastax lenses and spring sun

My Wollensak Fastax-Raptar f2 50mm and Redlake f2.8 25mm (close focus) wanted to soak up some spring sun...

Oh, and this is Circe, short "Cici", my special furry friend.














PS: Redlake HYCAM and FASTAX were high speed cameras. FASTAX was a 10.000 fps high speed camera system devloped by Bell Labs, later bought by Wollensak Optical, having a very unique, sturdy twist-lock lens mount.

Klaus,

Cats don't fit in with spring flow's, (cockney for flowers), LOL!

"Oh, and this is Circe, short "Cici", my special furry friend."








Interestingly, Klaus, there are entirely different feelings here. The first grabs a lot of landscape and the water is clearly defined. I would have loved that, if it was all I had to see.

However, Cici is only fully dominant and appreciated in the second picture, so much so that the environment becomes unimportant!

I cannot enjoy them both as the feline majesty in the second picture, (once I have felt this royal presence), erases the impact of the first one!

Asher
