Seen in My Neighborhood

Tree and fence. I was looking for scenes to shoot with my new-to-me Zeiss 25mm/f/2. Thanks Airy, for pointing my attention to this optic.

On Michigan Ave, this abandoned kid's bike lay seatless for new user or possibly the junk collector man. Zeiss 25mm.

I like these photos.  You're channeling Henry Wessel and William Eggleston, it seems :)

The CZ 25/2 is a sweet lens and you're putting it to good use.  Just wish my eyes were better so I could focus it better.

i have the 28mm f/2 (and few other CZ lenses) find them hard to focus at wide apertures but the iq is characteristic. ;)

Dogman, I had met Hank Wessel several times...he had been a friend's mentor.  Good guy who is no longer with us, unfortunately.
Fons: The ZF 25/2 makes an interesting alternative to the ZF 28/2.

Wessel was one of the greats, IMO.  He truly will be missed.
