Helios 44m6 58/2: Helios 40 freelens

We went to the Ice rink for the first skate of the year during a public skate session, I took along my KX and 2 helios lenses the 1993  H44 and 1965 H40 , and had a lot of fun!  I just realised that these are both Zeiss Biotar clones :)

 Inna does a lot of freelensing, so i figured I'd try some of my own, but instead of holding the lens in front of the camera, I thought Id reverse it and focus so that the subjects were perfectly sharp INSIDE THE OTHER LENS!  I also took this one to show the data on the front of the Helios 40 and it  came out way nicer than I expected , the Helios 44 was set at f2 and the Helios 40 was set at f1.5 :)
