The Distant Drummer

The Distant Drummer

The beat of the distant drummer had always been my calling. It set me apart from the multitude that tended to keep time to the raucous din of the hackneyed rhythm in vogue at the moment. It had been and always would be the divergent aspects of life that cast its charm upon me; the idiosyncratic, the unconventional nuances of the vital flame of life that had held it’s spell over me from my earliest recollection.

It did not go unnoticed among my peers who often made sport of my eccentricities. Few took the time to dare venture into my world, thinking it not the better part of refinement, but I never bothered to notice their absence. I was too busy entertaining the steady beat of that faraway cadence – too engrossed in the intoxicating non-conformity that constantly captivated my curiosity. It was that peculiarity that drew me in – that set me apart from the card-carrying members of normalcy. I was oblivious to my diverse peculiarities to the point of frequently being absent when called upon to be in present-mindedness.

My singularity, my distant gaze and peculiar awareness was off-putting to all but the very few who also shared my eccentricities. These odd ducks provided me with what little solace I could find in life outside the box of habitual conformity. We found ourselves an entity utterly and completely incapable of harmonizing with the garden-variety bourgeois alliance. We had, on occasion, tried to meld into the banal pabulum of fashionable society but would always find ourselves even farther removed from their ingratiating orthodoxy. And so, our lives continued on, each day leading us deeper into the life of the expatriates…. refugees of traditional savoir-faire.

It’s those risks taken, those rocky trails chosen over the smooth, the danger of heartbreak when the soul is lain bare, exposing the scars that bloodied our souls.... it’s those scenes played out on life’s stage that will be found the source for countless novels.

Thanks, Al. Yep, it's a really sweet lens with so much going for it. Back in my Vietnam days, I bought the M42 105mm version and used it for many years. Then, I found this K-mount 100mm and I was in Heaven! There's still decades of use left in this solid little lens. It's a joy to use. So solid and smooth. Someone's gonna' have a lot of fun with this. It's a great portrait lens, too.

This image gives me cause to reassess my opinion of flash illumination for flower photography! This is about as perfectly exposed as possible, I would think. So much minute detail to be seen, from the highlights to the shadows. Great work, Tony.

Item for Sale
Pentax-M 100mm f:2.8 * Fine Old Wine! *

Asking Price
115.00 USD

Item Location
Idaho (United States)

Item Description
Pentax-M 100mm f:2.8 lens. I very clean copy of a great performing lens. There's no haze, no fungus and very little dust. It has a wonderfully smooth, long focus throw and produces some amazingly sharp images with beautiful bokeh.

It pains me to sell this, but with my eyes being what they are..... well, someone needs to own this who will use it. These are fairly hard to find and this one is a real gem. It comes with a factory metal Pentax hood for a 135mm lens, but it seems to work fine with this.

Please PM me if you have any questions.
