Cheltenham with the X100s

We were in Cheltenham this afternoon and for a change I had the Fuji X100s with me, I had forgotten just how much this camera reminds me of the Leica rangefinders I used when working as a PJ, the size is very similar and with the 35mm equivalent lens reminds me of shooting street in Berlin during my 11 yrs working there as a Photojournalist.

Note to self - use the X100s more!

The last image is of George who I spotted sat with an original Speed Graphic 4x5" view / field  camera fitted with a 6x9 roll film back........ classic machine that I used myself years ago and the Toyo Graphic who purchased Speed Graphic and evolved it even more.

Cardiff with the X70

We went to Cardiff today and wanting to travel light I took just the X70 with me and grabbed a few street images.
I thought I would convert them to B&W so ran them through Silver Efex Pro.

Flyers and flowers

Lovely weather so time to take a walk around the meadow and grab some images of the butterflies in the meadow and the flowers they go to as well as a few images of other flowers in the area.
I used the Fuji XT2 with the 50-140 and the results speak for themselves -  a good, small, light and easy to carry combination.

Prescott Bike Festival

I attended the annual "Bike Festival" at the Prescott Hill Climb circuit, a superb day with a real mix of transport from old to new all lovingly looked after.

The weather was perfect with sunshine all day and well attended with a good crowd of attendees.

I was with my friend Rob and we covered all the best spots as well as some time in the paddock.

A day well spent and a Fuji success with the new firmware making the focus tracking even better!
