Oldie, but goodie -- images taken with an old lens

Challenge #3 in the Unpretentious series. Hosted by emccrory.
Challenge has finished

They have been making SLR lenses for decades. Nikon owners are particularly lucky since the SLR lens made for the Nikon SLR's of the 1950's and 1960's still physically fit on the newest DSLR's (with some compromises). Canon, Sony, Pentax and others are not so lucky. But there are adapters for you to fit almost any lens on almost any modern camera.

This challenge is for photographs from these old lenses. Any subject, any shoot date, any camera. But you have to use an OLD LENS (as defined below).

Couple that old Canon FD lens to your 5D through the adapter; try that old 90mm portrait lens your father bought in 1975; take a picture with a Sony NEX and and a classic Leica lens from eBay; scan in a negative from your school days in the 80s (or 50s!)--use your imagination.

One of the first portraits taken with my Minolta 50mm f/1.7 prime. Discontinued in 1990, it's probably one of the best bits of glass I've ever had the pleasure to own and one that any self respecting Sony shooter should have in their bag of tricks!
