Playing around with M42 lenses

Back in April, I had a chance to use my Yashica Auto Yashinon-DX 135mm f/2.8 and
S-M-C Takumar 50mm F1.4 that I had acquired about a year ago. I also got my hands on a Super-Takumar 105mm F2.8 the same day that I took these photos. I used my K-01 since I wanted to use the focus peaking feature.

The group pictured here is Minyo Station, a group that originated in Southern California and puts a modern twist on Japanese folk songs. One of the founding members is a jazz guitarist and creates many of the arrangements for the band's music, so many of their songs have jazzy feel to it.
