Picked up a very old, very beat-up USSR lens on ebay for $21.50. It's the Industar 50mm lens (f/3.5). Very quirky and fun. There is no coating on the front element, so you get some interesting effects when you point directly at strong light sources. Below is just a sconce light, but when filtered thru the old soviet glass, it somehow becomes art, to my eyes. Enjoy.

It's definitely a warm scene, with the light throwing a nice fuzzy glow. I like it!

Can't beat a good bargain. Looks to be doing a job too.
