This is much better: look at that bokeh! I […]

Christmas Mood

Festive lighting at Omotesando Hills for Christmas. For reference, the same scene but in focus – sometimes, it is useful to play with the focus ring!

Traffic Lights

As mentioned earlier, playing with the focus ring of the little Zeiss Biogon is a treat, and here a defocused road while waiting at a traffic light in Tokyo.
