    A few photos from the last couple of evenings. All the ferris wheel shots are with the Yashica ML 28/2.8 with Speedbooster and the horsey shot is from the Yashica ML 50/1.7, also with SB. The Karmann Ghia shots and the trees were from the Minolta MD W.Rokkor 28/2.8. Hope you enjoy.

    Great pics. Always loved the Ghia, but never got around to buying one.

    Thanks everyone, great comments. No.2 seems to be a popular one here, along with the Ghia. I basically had the camera down on the ground right at the edge of the puddle for that shot. With the tilting screen on the nex it was easy to line everything up. The base foot of the Speedbooster also made it very stable as well. It was actually in the water a bit.

    And yes, the Ghia is a lovely car. I have always wanted one but never been in a position to buy and own one. A shame.
