Old 52

I spend a lot of time on the Lafayette Road, aka Old US 52, as it is my favorite way to get to Margaret’s. It’s been a four-lane road since about the mid 1930s, but hasn’t been a U.S. highway since the 1960s when I-65 opened nearby and US 52 was routed onto it.

And so this old road, which dates to the 1830s, is empty most of the time.

    • I have a Nikon 35/2.8 and it’s a fine performer. I shot it all over Ireland last year. But this Takumar 35/3.5 does appear to have some special qualities. More coming next week when I review my Spotmatic F, as I shot this 35 on it through the entire test roll.

  1. That Takumar 35 mill and the Ektar 100 in combo really is something else, Jim! I need to get over to the father and ease off him that old Spotmatic and find a nice lens for it and give it a go.
    And as for the roads over there… well, they’re of a different spieces than here in Norway, for sure :)
