I have not had much time to read the list email, keep up, or respond of late. I 
have run into too much work trying to sell a house while moving into a new 
smaller house at the same time. Way too many things have come up needing 
fixing, from painting interior, trim work, redoing the whole tile roof, pool 
fixing, AC failing... My mind and body have not had time to rest. Today is my 
first break of not doing much. (And not to mention sharing a house with a new 
SO. That was fast.)

Before I became consumed with selling/moving I was deep into adapting lenses 
and hope to get back to it.

I would want to go back to older emails to figure out which LensBaby thingy 
would be of interest to me.

For some reason, my mind does not like swirly bokeh. Perhaps it reminds me of 
being on a merry go round when I was a kid.

Taking my queue from other sources, I bought some cheap ebay Vivitar 2X Macro 
Focusing Teleconverters that some have used, after removing the innards, for 
the fine helicoid for focusing adapted lenses. Seems some astro supply places 
also have more adapters. I bought some from https://agenaastro.com/ but have 
yet to cobble anything together.

The new CV 35/1.4 classic lens wide open still pleases while being a good 35mm 
lens. I added a couple with that lens to my album, which I posted before. See 
the last two here
I much prefer this type of look over the dizzy look.

when the dust settles...
