Photo of the Day: No. 9

I always wanted to take a decent photo of the facade featured in today’s photo, but because the building stands on a very narrow sidewalk and faces a rather busy street, there is almost no room for maneuvering. The only option is to shoot from across the street.

No. 9

Fortunately, I got a rather obscure Tamron CZ-715 70-150mm f/3.8 Adaptall lens as a freebie. It has been sitting idly on a shelf, until I decided to give it a go. This unassuming lens turned out to be quite alright. It’s compact and relatively lightweight, especially compared to Tamron 70-210 which weights a ton. More importantly, 150mm was just enough to shoot the facade from a longer distance. Now that this lens has proved its worth, I plan to use it more often.

Taken with Nikon F-501, Tamron 70-150mm f/3.8 Adaptall, and Ilford XP2 Super 400.
