Taken in the early post-midnight hours of the new day, after a long and relatively fruitful but tiring writing session.
Taken with the manual-focus-only and dirt-cheap Pergear 25mm lens....which I find a surprisingly decent entry in my own personal alternative version of the nifty-fifty-equivalent-micro-four-thirds sweepstakes.
On my stroll through Oberkochen where the Zeiss lenses are manufactured I came past a tiny chappel. You can't go inside, there's a big cast iron gate, so you can only look inside. View attachment 238420View attachment 238422
In the back of the chapel there is a pietà, to the left Josef with Christ, to the right St. Ottilia, patroness for eye diseases. Is this the reason why these superb lenses are manufactured here?
Bit of a setback. I discovered the Mahogany blank I was going to use for my guitar neck wasn't long enough. I have a really nice Mahogany neck blank, but I was planning to save it for a larger guitar project. I did order some more Mahogany from a luthier supplier, but it will have to sit in my shop and acclimate for several weeks before I can use it. I may have to just use the blank I have, and save the newer wood for the later project. Decisions, decisions . . .
Yes Matt Thanks for noticing! That’s my wife. She is still recovering from what’s known as ‘long hauler‘ issues of fatigue and shortness of breath. But she is getting stronger and we are able to get out for walks and to shop.
