Cones at Crystal

I bought a Chinese TLR, a Huazhong that has the same basic body and build of the dime-a-dozen Seagull TLRs, but has a shutter that can fire up to 1/500 of a second. I shot a test roll in the camera at bitterly cold rallycross at Crystal Motor Speedway. I took this picture during my course walk, leaving the start line and up the hill into the bowl of the dirt track. The aperture is closed down, but the lens is focused close, producing this odd dreamy background effect that I’m not sure is due solely to physics or in part by the lens’ cheap terribleness. Picture shot on a Huazhong TLR camera with a 75mm/f3.5 lens on Kodak Portra 400.
