Sekor C 180mm Lens

10-24-2010

My baby daughter and I went on a short excursion to a nearby pumpkin patch in Harpersville, Alabama this weekend. I made sure to take the “beast” with me and take some pictures with it. This 8 pound gorilla commands attention anywhere I take it and this venue was no exception. I got some interesting looks from some people to say the least.

This was also an excellent opportunity to try out the Sekor C 180mm lens on some portrait shots.

This particular pumpkin patch had a group of people reenacting the U.S. civil war and were dressed up in authentic costumes reminiscent of that era.

Pumpkin selection was down to hardly anything since halloween was quickly approaching and most people have ravaged through these patches way before us. We did manage to get our hands on a couple of unique looking pumpkins that were smaller in size and easy enough to carry back to the car.

I found myself driving to Nashville, Tennessee the following Monday to pay a quick visit with a close family friend who had just gone through a radical mastectomy due to a recurrance of her cancer. I had a little bit of time to swing by the Centennial Park across from Vanderbilt University to get some quick shots of the Parthenon. Shooting such an enormous object such as the Parthenon with the 180mm lens was no easy task. I practically had to go to the next township in order to fit the building within the lens frame.

I recently got the winning bid on a “very” used Sekor C 90mm lens on eBay and can hardly wait to try it on my next roll of film. More photos from the beast will be coming soon!
