Q: Choosing a Pentax prime lens

A: Do you know?

Photo license: © All rights reserved

A Chinese shrimp-fishing village thrived on this site in the 1880s. Nearly 500 people, originally from Canton, China, lived in the village. Near San Rafael California. Used a sepia tone that seemed to fit the age.
