These were taken in September, 2011 in Tarrytown, NY where I was trying out the first camera in my budding vintage camera collection. The focus of the collection at that point was on rangefinder cameras, and this one was a relic of the former Soviet Union: A FED 2 (slightly modified copy of a Leica II) with a FED 50mm collapsible lens “borrowed” from the Leitz Elmar. I was surprised and very pleased with the results – not a bad lens at all.
Tarrytown is a picturesque and historical Hudson River town with a number of good restaurants. In summer many of the restaurants have tables on the sidewalks, giving the town a pleasant al fresco atmosphere. It’s a nice place to hang out.
