Late fall planting

WARREN CONNECTICUT – More fog. Leica Monochrom and a major legacy lens. I’ve told the story of this lens previously. The lens cell was made by Carl Zeiss Jena in 1945. The Soviets relocated the Carl Zeiss business to Kiev as war reparations. The lens cell was put in a Leica screw mount focusing mount and sold in the west, probably on the gray market. It’s a remarkably high performance lens with a lovely signature, one of few in existence. It’s rendering works particularly well on gray days.
