I got a Chinon CE-3 Memotron for $40 a few weeks back and it came with a super takumar 55mm f/2. It’s not exactly a particularly desirable lens, and nor is a Canon 20D a particularly desirable camera at the moment. But I stuck the one on the other and got this shot of a not-a Honda-Accord Acura TLX around the corner from me. I don’t know why I like this picture so much. A nice prime and some pretty light seems to do the trick.
