I found an old Vivitar lens at an estate sale for $30, then spent another $30 for an adapter ring so it will work on my Canon EOS T2i DSLR. The guys at B&H Photo in NYC say it’s German-made from the ’70s. Except for the butterfly, which is from the Bronx Botanical Garden, these are from our yard. I may have to try an insect series.
Editor’s note: These seem from another universe given what happened in Newtown a couple of years later.
I’m just testing how the slideshow functions in WordPress, with some images I took at a historic house in Newtown, Ct. There is one of interest to journalists though — an old typewriter with an early version of the QWERTY key layout.
