This Space for Rent

(semi)railroad picture of the day


I was down at the ex-Portland Traction bridge over the Yellow Menace mainline in time for the afternoon up Coast Starlight, but, thanks to some mysterious reason, the afternoon up Coast Starlight wasn’t there in time for me.

In addition, even though I like my Zenitar fisheye, it just doesn’t fill the same niche as my crippled f1.2 50mm lens does. So I’m probably going to have to set up a cleanroom and completely disassemble the lens (shudder) so I can reattach the filter ring and not have to worry about the front lens assembly flying off and shattering itself (I like Pentax lenses, but the whole “put in a structural element that involves disassembling the entire lens to reattach” is more than slightly annoying.)
