BY JUPITER !

By hobbo
By Jupiter.... can be a verbal expression...or....as in this case, a photograph shot through a beautiful vintage Russian film camera lens....the...JUPITER 11... or Rocket-ship lens because of its shape. Mine is all shiny chrome and raises many questions if a fellow photographer notices it on my camera.

No good for Street Photography...but superb for both Portraits and Flower studies, because itís very sharp, renders colour beautifully whilst creating beautiful soft backgrounds .

Once you get used to the circa 3 feet minimum focusing distance it is relatively easy to use with an adapter, especially on a micro-four-thirds camera like my GX8 .

Here are two very recent shots from my front garden.

Good duo - the start of new life, and the end of life.
Have read about how older lenses can produce wonderful results in a way modern glass often cannot.
Beautifully composed and beautifully photographed
