Fathers Day 2008

June 15 was Fathers Day.
To celebrate my holiday, I started with a visit to the St. Louis Camera Show.
Among other items, I acquired two used lenses:
Auto Makinon (lens made in Japan) multi-Coated f:2.8 / 28mm wide angle, with Pentax K Mount, and
Sonagar (lens made in Japan) f:3.5 / 135mm tele, "preset" two ring aperture control, in T-Mount system.

I had with me my Pentax SE ME in special brown leatherette, and a Pentax SMC-M f:1.7 / 50mm normal lens.
So to test them out, I drove over to the Transportation Museum, now run by St. Louis County Parks, to see what the three lenses would do with a roll of Konica Minolta VX 200.

It was after noon and the Heat was On. There was a good crowd, they were hosting an Antique and Custom automobile show on the front parking lot.
I swapped through all three lenses to burn these images.
