365.286 the light, oh my the light

Well, this not quite the exact same subject as can be found in yesterday’s photo… but it’s maybe 6 inches to the right of that one, and taken with the lens that proves broken can be beautiful: the Zomb-E Series.

(In case you’ve forgotten, or weren’t around yet, or are checking out random posts on the blog here, the Zomb-E is a Nikon 75-150mm f/3.5 E Series that had its traditional focusing movement broken in a fall, and now functions only in reverse, and is one of my go-to lenses for making pictures that I like to look at.)

Again, probably not a great photo, but I love the Zomb-E bokeh, the spherical focus zone, the very special, super soft CA, and the warmth and general peace I feel when I look at it.

D7000. Nikon 75-150mm f/3.5 Zomb-E Series. ISO400, 1/1600th (AP mode), f/3.5, -1EV. 1/2 stop of exposure added back, and no other processing in Aperture.
