Great portraits everyone.

That is a very nice portrait lens, Doc. Great focal length ;)

Nice photos! We don't see much old Soviet or Eastern Bloc gear in Japan and the U.S., but with mirrorless bodies it can be fun to try all kinds of old lenses using an adaptor. I searched and found this short video so it was cool to see what it looks like:

Very nice shot, Henry. I am getting inspired by the B&W theme here.
Gotta try my hand.

Sury, I hope others will post some photos too. We have some real people here, but I think that some of the ids are actually bots. :(

In Susukino, Sapporo during the Yuki Matsuri (Snow Festival) that we were at this month these men were giving free cups of amazake out. I got one. I recall that when I was there 2 years ago they were giving it out too. Got one then too. :)

Lovely shot.
