July 2023 Part 1 — This Month Through Your Adapted Lens

Alan WF

An invitation to dust off your precious (or not so precious) glass and head out to make some photographs: the real reason for the existence of all our lenses.

Here are the guidelines:
  • Images with a removable adapter between lens and camera
  • Images with the lens mount permanently modified to fit a different camera
  • Images with the lens held by hand without an adapter (freelensing)
  • Including metadata (camera, lens, aperture, shutter speed) is encouraged but not required.
  • Comments are encouraged, but please keep them friendly and constructive.
Continued from the June 2023 Part 1 thread.

I am starting the new thread as a courtesy to the participants here, but given the recent news that DPR will continue in its current form, I do not plan to participate further here. If others would like to take over responsibility for the monthly thread, please do.
