Father's Day in the front yard (photo heavy)

Spent some time off and on today trying to capture some interesting images in the front yard with the Q and a Minolta mount Sakar 135/2.5. That included spying on the neighbors' Pug. The Pentax Red Dot sight helps get the FOV in the general area, but handheld, it still takes some finesse - which I don't have in abundance - to keep the lens centered when you move the loupe into view. A tripod would not have helped, because the things I was trying to capture were in constant motion. All in all, I'm mostly satisfied with the photos, although a few aren't as sharp as I'd like. It will be interesting to see the difference when my Minolta MD Rokkor-X 135/3.5 arrives, because I've read the coatings on that lens were very good. I know my Minolta 28mm and 50mm from the same era have gorgeous sharpness, color, and contrast.
