Zeiss 50mm Makro Planar manual focus lens

An intriguing set of neatly aligned boat docking stands seen in an old shipyard in Connecticut. The slightly out of focus background helps the subject pop out of the photo into attention. This photo reminds me of a line of soldiers with their prominent white armbands all in a row standing at attention in wartime, and that personification is only furthered by the old look and feel of the black and white. One of my all-time favorites. Taken with a Zeiss 50mm Makro Planar manual focus lens wide open at f/2, 1/4000.
