Challenge has finished
Let's celebrate my newest purchase... simplest and cheapes of the simple, cheap SLRs... the Ricoh KR-5! Your challenge is to take a photo (digital or film, color or B&W) that could have been made within the KR-5’s puny parameters: 55mm lens, shutter speed between 1/8 and 1/500 (or Bulb), aperture between f/16 and f/2.2, ISO range between 12 and 3200. **Please read the rules CAREFULLY for details.** I’ll be checking the EXIF data, but I also trust you to be honest—the fun of this challenge is to see how creative you can be within these parameters!

1st place
California caught fire in 2020, again. We had a week of fire sky and air that could be sliced. She was as worried as we were.

Focal length: 58 mm
Shutter speed: 1/60 sec
ISO: 125
Notes: I cannot say for sure what aperture I used, but this old lens does not behave well below 2.8, so it is probably less than the 2.2 maximum.
