My mother and grandmother came out to Colorado this fall to see the aspens turn. These are a couple I caught a couple of Mom in action.

The sudden cold weather made me realize that summer’s almost over. I started taking short photowalks over lunch to try to enjoy the weather. The last several photos I’ve posted have all been from these walks, and all from Skyline Park or the near area.
On a photo-nerd tangent this recent series was shot with the Pentax M135/3.5 lens, a fun little manual focus telephoto which was produced from 1977 to 1986. It’s a great lens for walkabouts as it’s very small and light (6.6 cm long, 270g). I picked mine up, secondhand of course, for just $60. I love that I can buy these nice old lenses for cheap, mount them with no adapters and they work better than the day they were made; it’s one of the great things about the Pentax system.
