Springtime! Ah beautiful spring colors. These were taken in our neighborhood, at Seattle's Carkeek Park, or near Issaquah, Washington. These were all created with either the Helios 44M 58mm ƒ2, or a BeLOMO KO-120mm ƒ1.8 projector lens. These two vintage lenses have really helped me to attain the soft glowy look, and the sparkle that gives the photographs the feeling of life-like magic that I see when I look around at the beautiful scenes in the world! I carefully set the aperture and focus to get just the right ratio of softness and sharpness. With these old lenses, subtle changes change the character significantly.
