A-Z Inventions

Brief: photograph notable* inventions, on a regular basis, using my manual focus** 50mm f1.8D.  Starting at A, I have to work my way through the (English) alphabet in order.

Why?

Why not.  Also, to encourage me to work on my manual focusing technique and expand my range of subjects.

Without further ado:

Where I haven’t made the picture yet, the list is a suggestion to myself – I may end up shooting something completely different.

 

* That’s my call.
