Fall is here. Nikon 24mm f/2.8 AI-s. Nikon D7100.

Manual focus lens. Paid 126.00 dollars on mpb.com. I continue to go backwards into the past of my photography journey. Darkroom seems to be in my future. But the cost of film and having it developed! Not so bad with a fully functioning darkroom, it would seem?

But anyway, I attached the Nikon 24mm f/2.8 AI-s to my trusty Nikon D7100. Mostly I shoot these manual focus lenses in aperture priority. These are all unedited photos. 

The photo of the dog is out of focus, but who cares? Gives me that film look? 

Why did I sell my Nikon D200? Why!!!!!! I think I could get better results with the Nikon D200 on these old lenses. 

It takes some time to adjust from a auto-focus to a manual focus lens. What’s nice is I’m learning to understand the aperture depth of field better. A manual lens forces me to think in depth.

The Nikon 24mm f/2.8 AI-s is 36mm on the Nikon D7100. Possibly in the future I might purchase a Nikon D700 full frame. But the weight!!!!! Or just go film and get a Nikon FE.

As far as lens purchases in the future, I feel content with my misfit family of cast away lenses.
