This morning I had to take my wife to our office
where she was meeting up with members of our ski club for a week of
skiing in Andorra. After dropping her off, I went for an early Sunday
walk in the centre of Alicante. Not many people out and about at 9:30
a.m. but I like a city in the morning, I took this picture of a statue
of a mayor of Alicante in the 19th century, using my 40 year old 50mm
Summilux at full aperture, i.e. 1.4. I know that there are modern lenses
that are better, but look at this; the sharpness, the bokeh...no wonder
it is my favourite lens:
Great to see the old bloke is
still with us; he's wearing a hearing aid !!
Agreed about the lens;
great detail in all respects.
