Old Tech: Using An Antique Lens

Challenge #46 in the Technology Enabling Art series. Hosted by ProfHankD.
Challenge has finished
Submit any photograph captured using a modern digital camera with an antique lens. We'll consider a lens to be "antique" if that model credibly was available 50 years ago, so a lens model that was first produced in 1969 would count even if your particular copy of that lens was made in 1977. The Adapted Lens Talk forum ( https://www.dpreview.com/forums/1065 ) can give you some good ideas for what lenses to adapt and how to adapt them... and even "freelensing" counts as adapting a lens.

Kodak Ektar f:7.7 203mm ("8 inch"). The Ektar line was Kodak's pro line of lenses. Kodak introduced this design in 1915, though this one is probably from the 1940s or 50. My father in law used this on a Crown Graphic press camera, when my wife was a toddler. I got this pic by taping the camera to the film holder of the crown graphic.
