New Camera-Old Lens

Pexels has an active photo challenge called Windows and Doors. I decided to head downtown and see if I could get some shots to submit. To spice it up a bit, I decided to use a vintage Hexanon 57mm f/1.4 on the walk. I’m not a big fan of prime lenses for street photography, but I am a big fan of getting out of my comfort zone.
