Billy the Kid’s Trading Post, Albuquerque

Pentax 50mm Prime Lens

Billy the Kid Trading Post, Albuquerque

This photo shows Billy the Kid’s Trading Post in Old Town, Albuquerque, New Mexico. I love the collection of elements in this setting: The Adobe walls, red bench, turquoise trim, and flowering shrubbery. Old Town is the oldest district in Albuquerque and is a delightful tourist attraction filled with galleries, gift shops, and restaurants.

Camera: Pentax K-x DSLR camera and SMC Pentax 50mm F:2.0 manual lens. The 12.4-megapixel Pentax K-x DSLR can be found on the used camera market for less than $200. The vintage Pentax 50mm lens was purchased used for $20.00. It is a very sharp, capable and lightweight lens! The sharpness of this lens and its ability to resolve detail is best seen in the foliage. Leaves are crisply rendered even in the shadows in a way that is superior to my favorite cheapskate zoom lenses.
