Hey that’s not a nature camera! Shooting trees with my Fujifilm X-Pro2.

The Fujifilm X-Pro2 is a fantastic camera and the more I use it the more I like using it. But the XP2 is clearly marketed towards street and typical “rangefinder” type users. A modern Leica, if you will. And I purchased the camera to use it as such. I wanted a “rangefinder” style camera so I would purposely stick to…

Monochrome in a colorful place

I decided to finally visit the Palace of Gold in Moundsville, West Virginia after putting it off for decades. I don’t live too far from there yet I almost never even think about going. But it was a beautiful Sunday afternoon, I was wondering what I could photograph that would be different and I though it would be a nice time…

Getting squiggly with it

I am not squiggly. Just some plants reflecting in wavy pond water. I know, it’s a ho-hum photo but I did want to post something since I’ve been away for a while. It’s generally not a good idea to post ones crappy photos but I felt like I had to do something. I’ll be back soon with some black and…

Shooting vicariously through others

My photography output has been awfully low these past few months. I think I have shot less than I have in years. Why? Just a combination of things – first the usual suspects such as work and home, followed by the total lack of anything to shoot. I know, I have pretty much created my “style” around shooting anything and…

Cubism

In my last post that I titled a whirlwind of activity I found that I failed to mention any activity. Since the post before that one, my old computer died and I had to get a new one and start all over with installing programs, getting used to Windows 10, reinstalling programs, getting aggravated with windows 10, finding workarounds to…

A whirlwind of activity

I know it’s been over a month since my last post and honestly I never realized how fast time was flying by. I surprised I still have a few visitors every day because it would appear that I abandoned this site. But I’m still here! Well, for the time being at least. I have an idea for another site more…

Difficult to be different. The color parade continues.

Continuing on with some autumn themed photos. I shot these earlier today in the local park. It was a last minute excursion and I didn’t expect much as the local park is far from being picturesque. My plan was to just focus on details, if I found any, but, as usual, I don’t even remember my plans when I start…

A quick checkup on the creepy factor

I had this post in draft for almost a week and couldn’t think of anything to say to add to the photo, so I just let it linger there for a while until I came up with something. Anything. Since it’s been a week and I had no creative writing juices flowing, I’ll just have to put up something. I took this photo…

A first for Whatipic

This photo was transfered from my Fujifilm camera to my phone via wifi and, in turn, to my blog. I know it’s sort of old tech (old tech, of course, means over a year old), but it’s a first for me. I also rarely post unedited photos, usually prefering to shoot RAW, but this is the jpeg straight from the…
