This range is not so well represented in my collection. Only the Diaplan 2.8/80, so a quiet week for me in this respect.

Since I'm shooting more and more film these days with my old and trusty M2 from 1958 I found that the rangefinder needed adjusting and that some of the lenses were starting to lose contrast due to "haze", which is mostly caused by evaporating components of old grease used for the helcoid. There's only one business left in the whole Benelux who does such work and he's located in Zoetermeer (Sweet Lake City) so I drove there today to drop the whole set off and took the opportunity to cycle to the area of the "Nelson Mandela Bridge" which connects the two sides of this town, which is split in two by two rail lines and a highway. This bridge spans all three in one go but is only for pedestrians, bicycles and mopeds.

Here's some impressions:

80-1: Papa fume une pipe



80-2: Urban art studio



80-3: Entrance canopy



80-4: Obligatory arcade shot on the bridge



80-5: Standpipe #1



80-6: What's in, what's out?


All A7ii + Tamron Adaptel 80-210/3.8-4 @ 80 mm

Ah, I know it well. Very close to work. Once voted the ugliest bridge in the country. Not so bad, but the blue and yellow is an acquired taste. The graffitied building belongs to a series of buildings between the station and the City Centre that will be removed for a very ambituous redevelopment project with high rise appartments, shops, parking and offices. Not anytime soon in the current market.

You bring out the best in this place. Good looking pics.

Thanks Paul, and I agree, the area around the bridge (city center side) breathes about an order of magnitude more ambition than money . A bit "griebus" as they say but nice to walk around in and photograph. I'll post some none 80 mm stuff elsewhere.

I know you work in that area but I assume you're working from home and not in the office today. Anyway, decided not to give you a call given the request from our country leaders to exercise social abstinence

Good area for a photowalk indeed. You made a very nice series of this ugly bridge and its environment.
Looking forward to your work on film too.

Good series Paul, showing the capabilties of this lens! Not just bubbles and bokeh.

Like many later Meyers the Pentacons are identical. In the GDR they called this planned economy.

I know Will and Cathy and the bridge very well. I like them all! Cathy can take your M2 apart and make it new again. Will is full of stories about gear. He never makes a photo but he loves the hardware.
The bridge is lovely, yellow and blue is a colour combination made in heaven. Unfortunately the bridge is far from heaven, its situation must have given it its bad reputation.

Thanks Leo, unfortunately due to Corona they didn't allow visitors inside, so I just dropped off my package at the front door, but even in the very brief moment I was there Will seemed a very nice guy. I hope to be able to go inside when I go and pick up my stuff after it's all cleaned and adjusted. Only problem is that I'm down to one 90 mm lens for week 14, but so be it.

And the bridge is fine as well, never regretted I went there to take some shots. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder and doing a bit of googling yesterday (social abstinence makes you do different things from normal) the bridge got its reputation from the area around it being well run down with a lot of empty and unmaintained office buildings. I think they cleaned that up a bit with the help of some good grafitti artists and even installed a nice bicycle tire pump as an extra public service.
