With the exception of the Helios I've owned all of those lenses. I sold the 69 but still have the others. Lovely little lenses. I don't use the Industar-50 any more since buying the Jupiter 8 and have added a Jupiter 3 to the collection, which is my favourite lens at the moment.

Here's a quick crappy picture of mine.

I'd love a Jupiter-3, but can't justify the cost at the moment what with our driveway halfway through rebuilding, and a falling down wall to repair, but I will be there one day.
That and the 85mm Jupiter :)

Does your Industar-50 reach infinity? I bought the pancake version by mistake and had to do an M42 conversion to get it to focus properly (looks silly, a pancake lens on an M42 adapter).

Cheers :)

The 3 is an absolute belter of a lens. I got a good copy for £140. Well worth it.

My Industar does focus to infinity but I rarely use it these days as the Jupiters are so much better.

I've got a chance of an Industar-50 rangefinder from 1958 for about £20 (the year of my birth), or a black Industar-50-2 from Estonia for £13 (more recent year). I have a very good seller in Estonia I've used before and he's very efficient.
Either will look much better than the M42 converted pancake. I'm tempted.

Cheers :)

The Moki Dugway . Goes up 1100 feet in about 3 miles . No guardrails except in the switchbacks . I had the fun and excitement of encountering at one of the turns ,( fortunately not physically) a semi on the way up as I was going down . He wasn't backing up so I did .

Excellent, I drove this very same road in 2014. You really have to see and drive it to truly appreciate the "thrill" of it all. Great picture, I didn't stop until I got to the top to take any myself. They aren't as nice as this.

I'm very surprised a truck was on that road considering all the signs stating no trucks or trailers.

So was I . On the way up I was behind 2 pickups towing small flatbed trailers . Must have been local guys as they appeared to know the road and were hauling' . On the way down , I had a small camera on a window mount to record the trip ... Just 'cause . Anyway , I couldn't believe it when I met the semi . You didn't do the Dugway in the Porsche?

Here's something I posted on Facebook today not related to my puppy.
ContactSheet-001.jpg


And here's the accompanying text.

"Grief.

People deal with grief in different ways and we've all got to find our own coping mechanisms to get through it. Some deal with it better than others, we all deal with it differently and some don't deal with it at all.

Candice's father committed suicide. On her birthday.

How one deals with something like that, I can't even begin to imagine and this girl has certainly had more than her fair share of adversity in her life time (Candice was also involved in a vehicle accident that almost left her a quadriplegic not that long ago and was informed by medical staff that she'd be lucky to walk again).

One of the things that Candice thought might help was to document how she was feeling. Sort of display on the outside what's happening on the inside. That's where I came in.

I've shot Candice multiple times now, she was one of the first portrait sessions I conducted, I consider her a friend and beautiful person. When I was approached to do this shoot, I was apprehensive to say the least, but also understood and wanted to help her in anyway I could.

I hope doing this helped you Candy. <3 "
