Thank you Fred and Leo!

Leo, great to see you (or at least your photos...) here this year as well! I was worried that no one will remind me day 127...

Great start for this year! This week I have 4 zoom lenses with wide ends at 16mm, 18mm and 19mm. Let's see how much I will manage to get out of them...

Welcome to Day Prime, you're doing fine! I like #2 especially, with her shadow in the foreground.

This week is two lenses for me, a Minolta 16/2.8 FE (A-mount) and a Minolta Rokkor-W 17/4 MC (MC/MD mount)

I took them both out today, again because it seemed the best day in the forecast for the coming days.

First the Fish-Eye

16.1: Main hall of the Redoubt of Schilde (you can see the large cracks in the ceiling from when they tried to blow it up in 1914, but this part is still standing > 100 years later)



16.2: The cellar behind the main hall



16.3: Casemate in front of the main redoubt

defished in Lightroom


16.4: Entrance to the same casemate



16.5: No graffiti inside, so I spiced it up with a shadow from my camera



16.6: And part of the moat is now a fishing pond from a local fishing club


All on an A7Rii

And now the Rokkor 17/4:

17.1: Bat cave (the closed rooms of the redoubt is indeed a place where thousands of bats hide during their winter hibernation)



17.2: Partly blown wall



17.3: Another one in the cellar behind the main hall



17.4: This used to be an inside hallway, but the wall on the left was blown out in 1914


All on an A7ii

Leo, happy to see you sneaking in and curious about your further 2020 Day Prime yield

Thanks for the encouraging words, Paul. Actually always amazed on the final outcome myself, not to say that I often struggle in the beginning to find the right angle and framing to master the 130° AOV of this Voigtländer.

I always feel that the subject selects this lens. If the subject is not right, there is little you can do with the camera to make it work.

I have five lenses with suitable focal lengths for this week, so I guess it is better to start with the task. Just a snapshot rather than fine art...

HK18A.1 New paint on the elevator door, do not enter!

α7R II + SMC Pentax 1:3.5 18 mm @ 18 mm, f/3.5, 1/30 s, ISO 1600

For me 15mm (fisheye) and 16mm (zoom-end) will be on duty this week. Most likely it will be weekend before I start shooting. Long live the weekly flexibility for Day Prime!
