After School at Amerson

Henry has been asking to go to the park all week, but we’ve had stuff to do most nights. I kept saying “Thursday after school.” I’ve been meaning to have the M8 with me during pickup in order to photograph the afternoon sun coming through the fall-colored leaves on campus. Well, today was that day.

After snapping a few on the Montessori campus, we drove to Amerson. While Henry played, I took a few more photos, including the one here which is my favorite of the day. Again, the Ultron 2/28 shows what it can do, showing that lovely 3D focus fall-off. It really makes these knockout roses pop. I shot a few photos of Henry before we decided to head home.

And since this is one of the last afternoons of Daylight Savings Time, we took advantage of the afternoon light when we got home and hung out on the patio. I took a few of Henry with his new ball. The last four images in the gallery, I put the Summicron 2/35 on the M8 for a bit of a comparison. I don’t have too much to say about the differences in the lenses other than the 35mm is a bit closer with its own set of frame lines. I do like the extra room the Ultron gives me.

See all the images in the gallery.
