the eddie lens
This is a little Bausch & Lomb
theater lens from perhaps
1940? It was completely de-laminated. Eddie said,
"make offers" so I did. I offered him $5 bucks. Eddie
said I'll mail it to you for free since no one else wants
it, wisely figuring the bargaining power later might
surpass the lousy offer.
You never know what you're going
to get with these
little lenses. They swirl they blur they whatever. But
this one is like an explosion in a mattress factory. It
won't swirl, it just scatters light linearly in all directions.
I've simply put the pictures in
the order I took them
yesterday. I reigned it in somewhat with the Desoto
pictures by moving in closer to the subject.
