Fθ lens...

 found this box at fairfax high flea market...

この箱を、都会のフェアファックス高校で毎週やってるフリーマーケットで見つける・・・

 shinya had to carry this to off street parking area...

よりによって車を遠くに停めちゃったので、担いで歩かなきゃ・・・

 "wish it was an empty box..." 
by the way, do you see how much we were psyched about this flea market? yes,we took our van there!

やっとチャボバンが見えてきたよ、お、重ひ・・・の図。つか、アウェイのフリマなのにバンで乗り付けるあたり、木村氏の気合がにじみ出ちゃってますな。そういう時にかぎって収穫はこの箱のみ。前回ここで大きな作業台を見つけたからって、気合入れすぎはいけませんよ。

 it says scanning lens...

この立派な箱も魅力的なんですが、今回は実は中身・・・



 the seller told us that it was from a military airplane...

売り子のおじさんはミリタリー飛行機のスキャニング・レンズだって言ってたけど、いわゆるFθレンズ。大きい。
 

 looked around the workshop through the lens.

とりあえず色々見て回る。

That's a pretty cool lens. About 1965 my father and I went to a military surplus place in Rocklin Calif. that you guys would have loved. The kind of place that had tip tanks and all manner of ex military stuff. It was called G.I. Joe's. It's long gone now, which is a pity. We were building a home-built plane at the time and were getting a lot of aircraft hardware there. Rooting around one time we found a once 'top secret' aerial balloon camera that was used to spy on Russia and China. Reason we knew that, was because my father used to develop the film they recovered from these after they would come down near Japan. I tried to talk him into buying it, it was only 75 dollars.The military probably paid more than that for the crate it was in. He said, well I can tell you about it now, because obviously it's been de-classified. It had an amazing lens on it. Before satellites this thing was real state of the art.Man I miss that store.

Ayu,

That was really cool to take a shot through the lens. Makes a neat image with superb depth of feel.
