Default Breaking out an old lens

Buried in my camera bag is an old Canon 50mm FD lens used by my Dad when he was a photographer many (20+) years ago. Every once in a while I like to take it out since it reminds me of him, and how much support he has given me in my own photography. The rain let up for a little bit today with the sun peaking through the clouds. Wasn't out to shoot anything in particular just giving the lens some use.

Taken with a Canon 60D, Canon 50mm FD lens with FD to EF converter.

Still works very well in my opinion. I love the black and white treatment ot the grass much more than the color one. Just saying,,,
The hardest part of accepting criticism is realizing I am not perfect.......

Nice pics. I have an old 1970's Nikon 55mm macro lens that is wonderful.
