Looking through the glass onion ... oh yeah

Shot with the Carl Zeiss 80mm f2.8 for Hasselblad
What's the deal with the onion?  Not sure, really.  But when I saw it sitting on our kitchen for over a week now, I thought that to would make a good still life model.

One of the many more test shots using the Carl Zeiss 80mm for the Hasselblad with the 24mm Extender attached to the Canon 5D ii.  The lens does not produce tack sharp images but the unique character I think outweighs the sharpness.  The lens is designed for film use.  Plus it's a hundred years old.  Well, I'm kidding.  Not sure how old the lens is.  But it's old.  It's vintage.  And it puts out a vintage quality unlike most modern lens.  I happen to like it.  And I think I'll continue to play around with it.
