Although I visited the swan area a few times this week, the photos I made do not come close to the ones of last week. One early white morning it was very quiet and I could not find one single swan....for a while I was thinking that they were migrated. When I visited the area just before sunset, I found out that the swans are very frightened of dogs and while I was hiding under a tree I saw group by group leaving the lake everytime a dog was running near the shore.
But, next to the swans I have an other activity....photographing with 'old' lenses. Twenty years ago the shop windows were full with these kind of occasions. Now, it is a hype and to 'catch' some lenses is almost impossible due the high crazy prices. Recently, I bought one lens of the DDR manufacturer Meyer Optik from Jena. Meyer would be amazed finding out that their 'Trioplan 2.8/100mm' reached a price of 600 Euro....and often it has a bad condition. What a hype can do!
So obiously, I bought an other lens of Meyer under 100 Euro and I'm impressed by the softness, sharpness, depth of field and bokeh of this lens.
