I hiked along the river south of the Hispanic Cultural Center to a place I visit around this time each year to photograph a stand of yerba mansa. It turned out that I was about a week early for the full show, and there were relatively few of the plants in bloom.
No shortage of other subjects, however.
I haven't used my Pentax K1000 much since I found it in a local thrift shop, though it is in very good operational order. The problem has been that I don't have any additional lenses beyond the standard 50mm f-2 lens that came on the camera. I made some small progress toward fixing that issue recently when I found a 49mm +4 Hoya close-up lens at another thrift store. I'd still like to find a good telephoto and wide-angle like the ones I have for the Spotmatic, but the additional flexibility provided by the close-up accessory lens will encourage me to get out more often with the K1000.
