What can seem more prosaic than the plain wooden bench in front of almost every village house in Belarus?  And yet the bench is the pivot of social life, the gathering place of generations on a summer's eve, a neighborhood agora (one of many in a given village), the permanent observation post.  The bench is the witness to the changing fortunes of the village and at the same time a testament to Belarusianness beyond time.   It is the place where, after a long day’s work or in the later years of life, homeowners sits to take in the late afternoon sun, to let the evening meal simmer, to chat with neighbors, to wait for the cow to come home, to observe the passing traffic, to guide the stranger asking for directions -- and, having sized him up in an instant, to give him spirited advice about life.

Parishioners of the church of the Holy Trinity with whom I attend services on the major Eastern Orthodox feasts, Azdamichy, Pripet Marshes of southern Belarus 2018.

Evikne thanks for the introduction of this thread and your great images! The Summilux pre asph. is my most loved lens not only because of the bokeh but also because of the nice handling. I've got the black paint version with the nice sloped focusing ring (in german we call it "Berg und Tal-Fokusring").

I hope we will see many more nice pictures of this wonderful lens!

Robert

Thank you very much for your kind words!

And I envy you that black paint lens! The sloped/scalloped focus ring seems like a dream to use! 😉
