Acquired another copy of the Jupiter-37A 135MM 1:3.5 lens recently, after the earlier copy went to a buyer, did my normal quick edit of the garden, and had the images edited on my desktop. As expected, images with the sturdy as-a-tank 37-A are very sharp, even when shot wide-open, with good micro-contrast, natural color rendition, and smooth bokeh.

Had the images cropped to the square format, or the 1:1 aspect ratio as well, which in itself is an interesting way to present images. Unlike images in either the portrait or landscape format, where the eye is either drawn from top to bottom or from left to right, the square photo format draws vision to the center of the composition and then lets the eye explore the entire frame without providing any implicit direction because of the frame.

Square format images are, of course, not new, as they were first introduced by Rollei in 1929, later by Holga and Hasselblad, and came back to focus with mobile photo apps like Instagram and Hipstamstic.
