Glass of Water in Sunlight

Intent upon finishing a roll of film I had in my Nikon F, I saw that late afternoon sunlight was streaming onto the kitchen table. Remembering an earlier photo shoot I did with a glass of water, I filled the same glass, attached my 135mm f/3.5 Nikkor, and worked the scene. I only had three exposures left on my roll of film and quickly finished it off.

I wanted to see what my Canon EOS M50 could do with my Carl Zeiss Jena Biotar lens, so I got that camera and lens and continued to work the scene.

It’s amazing how much beauty simple objects can have in the right light.
