Fading, Obsolete and Dirty
Lens: Lensbaby Sweet 35mm Camera: Pentax K-3 Photo Location: Petrolia, Ontario

There is a sweet irony when using the Pentax K-3, a technological tour de force, with the distorted, blurred and random lensbaby optics. Sometimes it's just fun to change your vision and shoot with a bent eye. In fact, the bright 100% viewfinder of the K-3 is a perfect match for the manually focused lensbabies. My keeper rate is much higher than with my old K-5.

Back in September, my brother and I did a walkabout in Petrolia, Ontario. We came across and old machine shop and some of the rusting machinery became the subject of several photos.

"Rough machinery" gives an interesting effect with lensbaby
