Single In Single in April (SiA) 2024 - discussion thread

Last Sunday I had to go to the hospital emergency room. After tests the diagnosis was acute prostatitis. Then they put a catheter in my bladder and started antibiotic treatment in my vein.
Tomorrow I will be released from the hospital and will have to wear the catheter for 14 days and take antibiotics for 4 weeks.
My mobility will be greatly reduced, but I will start SiA on April 1st and I will try to continue it until the end of April

Been there, done that, not fun. Hope you get better quickly.
 
Wee... gratuitous over-processed gear shot LOL. Stuff for the month. Still deciding if I'm going to apply any limitations or leave the month free for whatever.

Due to things inevitably ramping up over the course of the month, restrictions would be madness in my case. I hope the weather won't force me to shoot indoors too often - the lens isn't sealed at all and will drown if drenched. That said, the 7Artisans 35mm f/1.4 II, though it has its quirks optically (major barrel distortion being the most obvious - but I'll correct for that, and at least it's linear), lends itself quite well to making something mundane look dramatic, so, impromptu indoor shots can without too much ado. It's also no worse close up than it is at normal or far distances (you need to stop down for shots at infinity, but that's what I'd do anyway). So, it should be doable, but I'll not impose any more difficulties on myself.

I was sweating bullets trying to attach the adaptor to the vintage Nikon lens I'm going to be using.
I had done it about two weeks ago when I got the lens back from the repair technician who removed fungus and gave it a full service.
But now I couldn't for the life of me see any alignment marks on the lens barrel and it seems stiff going on the adaptor.
Finally I pushed the aperture ring to 32 and then aligned a teeny black dot with the clearly marked spot on the FTZ and click it's in place.
I just tested it quickly to see whether it does what it should. Set it to the non-auto lens thingy with the correct details and here we go:

Well, here's a look at my toys of the month - I did a change to the 50 of my daily for a year to the luscious prewar uncoated Zeiss Sonnar because I just love it so much.

And here's the 28/3.5 mounted. Nice little lens too. The Amedeo adapter only pulls up the 50 frame lines but with a 28, the whole of the VF is really quite close enough with the 240 :)

On the way home from work in the morning, I'll get started.
