I named this photo Old Town, Albuquerque, Still Life #2. It was shot in Old Town, Albuquerque, New Mexico, a popular tourist destination and the oldest section of the city. This area has pueblo-style architecture that dates back to the late 1700’s. This photo shows a bit of the charming time-worn patina of Old Town.
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! In fact, this photo was taken during my first test of this lens shortly after purchase. It has convinced me of the optical excellence of vintage prime lenses! I don’t own a modern zoom lens that can match this 40-year-old lens in sharpness and resolving power.
