I had a great morning hanging with the gang at the Essex Shipbuilding Museum. After a meeting of volunteers some of the crew went over to the shed to help do maintenance work on the Louis Story a working schooner built by Harold Burnham. These are just a few shots made with the Sony Nex-7 and two different Leica lenses. The 35mm Summicron f2. and the Leica 50mm Summilux f1.4. Both lenses worked really great. I am still learning the ins and outs of focusing with these lenses as the fringing gets tricky at times. You can see all the images from this shoot here. Or Click the slideshow below.
