The Soviet-era Helios 44/2 lens (actually a 58mm lens, and a direct copy of the Zeiss Biotar 58mm lens) has a cult following for the way it renders out of focus areas at wide apertures. I recently got one that had been adapted to work on the Nikon F mount and still focus to infinity, and I have started to experiment with it. The person who did the work on the lens has an interesting YouTube video that explains the process.

For a few years now I have made it my own little ritual to go out for a shoot on the morning of January 1st. That way, no matter what else happens, I can say the new year is another year in which I have some at least some photography. 🙂 This morning I went to Bluffer’s Park Beach in Toronto. A shore symbolizes time to me: the waves and water are eternal, and the shore is always changing.
