Smile! The world is a beautiful place (^_^)


This changing season ~ Photos made with my Fuji X-T2 and a Pentax-a 50mm lens I found in my parent’s storage, it’s from the late 80’s I think. It’s a very nice and compact little lens; it’s built in metal but only weights 145 grams. I love the bubbly bokeh when shot wide at f2 🙂

  1. Wow that is a cool effect. Is it so distinctive because of this particular lens? Great shots anyway 😊

    • Many thanks as always Tony! 🙂 The soap bubble bokeh effect can be achieved with most lenses with a shallow depth of field. But some (old) lenses have particularly beautiful bokeh, I think!

  3. Very, very nice!! Lovely colours and composition. I must look in my mum’s stuff to see if she has any old lenses🙂🙂

    • Thanks so much John! 🙂 In case you don’t find any in your mum’s stuff you can find these on eBay for around £ 20!

  4. Another new/old lens?? Wow, that’s cool, Camilla. These are very nice. I like the way the first image features the dry seedhead but has that wet, bubbly bokeh in the background – quite a contrast. Did you have an adapter already that fits this lens?

    • Thanks a lot Lynn! I got a bunch of lenses from my parent’s storage! And ordered an adapter online, so now I’m good to go 🙂
