Hibiscus meets Helios
Lens: Helios 44-2 Camera: The best camera in the world 
Posted By: luftfluss, 07-14-2012, 07:38 PM

Hibiscus syriacus - commonly known as a Rose of Sharon - was introduced to my Helios 44-2 on this cloudy day. Nothing fancy, just some snaps.

More than just snaps! The first and third are very artistic, the fourth too...and there is absolutely nothing wrong with the second. But my favourite is the first. I love it!!!!

Thanks guys and gals, it's fun to take out the Helios every once in a while. No real PP on these, I just let the lens speak for itself.
