We Sleep With One Eye Open...

Okay so I know that I've been flooding my stream with pictures of my husky Kona recently, but I needed to share this one. I recently picked up a Sony NEX 5N on a whim on the recommendation from some friends thinking that I would carry it around with me all the time. But what really drew my attention was the ability to use "legacy" or old manual focus lenses from old SLR's. I have a bevy of old MC/MD Minolta Rokkor lenses that my father gave to me.. and while I do shoot film I thought this would be a way to give them a rebirth. Let me say, I love this setup... the focus peaking along with zoomed manual really allows me to get tack sharp focus with even the smallest apertures. My next goal for my NEX is to do some street shooting, its small enough to not draw attention (though i should have go it in black) and see how it performs!
