Strolling Cat

I hereby follow up the success of my last Pussy post and bring you an amazing strolling street cat that seemed to be intrigued by me at least as much as I was intrigued by him. 
This time, starring Mr Helios 44K-4 at f/4 I think, but I can't be sure.
Comment if you like.
Cheers.

Macro(ish)

A few shots from my last outing. Not real macro, but close enough for me.

SMC Pentax-F 35-70mm F3.5-4.5

I'm testing an old lens from the first generation of Pentax auto focus lenses that was made in the late 80's until around 1991 (don't know when my copy was produced). this lens claims to have macro capability although it only magnifies up to 1:4, but it does have sort of a "close focus" ability when at 70mm that is activated by turning the zoom ring after it reaches 70mm, which is not a natural thing to do if I haven't known that beforehand.
I find the focus to be hard to lock in close ups using the very uncomfortable and short focusing ring. nevertheless, here are a few samples from my first outdoors test (click to enlarge)

Clear Night Scene

This long exposure shot was taken using the built in Star Burst digital filter of the Pentax K-x.
Might be a little over exposed, but I think it's alright.
