Snapshot by 100 year old lens


The photos here are the first field test of the lens from 100 year old camera,

= Doppel Anastigmat of Steinheil Munchen —– so that they were just

the random snapshot in the Peckham, south-London downtown.


In certain extent, Peckham said to be a nice vibrant place though, when I walked around,

I’ve come across a Police cordon, notice to seek a witness for rape attack kind etc.

When local MP Harriet Harman (local though, she is living in the much nicer hillside

miles away   🙂 ) walked about the town with Police, she was wearing bullet-proof jacket

(hence created big public uproar).     The place was dubbed as “Little Lagos” as lots of

Nigerians were living here still, these days, I saw many Kosovars,  Vietnamese,  

and ever increasing Chinese. (used to have a lots of Afghans as well) 



With its ethnic mix, the vegie shop is selling from hottest Habanero Chilli

(Photo top), Plantain Banana, huge Yam to Bok Choy etc and the meat

 is Halal (for Mosrim). 









Since the lens got awful lots of fungi which I can’t clean as they are between 

the stacked lenses, the halation is inevitable, still it’s managed to capture 

some details in the shadow ! = rather amazing.



And even Peckham has Cherry too !

      What do you mean “sold” ? — did you have that kind of camera before ?
      If you like to try, (any camera lens on 6×6 or 6×4.5 size can be easily modified
      to use on 35mm DSLR) — I’ll give you the instruction.
