Another composite image taken with the Fuji X100V. This little camera is very capable, and I don’t even know all it can do. Basically, I am lazy! However, I do know the areas that, for me, are the parts of a camera I want to know the most. The thing that drew me to the Fuji X100V was its fixed focal length, film simulations, and the fact it can be manual, shutter, and aperture priority. Add to that, it shoots square pictures, and that is a big plus in my book. I think I like the 1:1 ratio the best.
Yesterday it was over 80F. Today it is a cool 69F. Little rain. Still, life continues. New growth on a pine at the local garden, where flowers are in bloom everywhere. A walk in the open space nearby found mockingbirds singing away, looking for wives, and staking out their territory. It’s a stunning time of year.
While not where Wordsworth was, this little bit of local beauty is always a place of tranquility and quiet – a place, a place to be thankful for each day.
Another cross-processed and rescued Velvia image . . . absolutely hideous in CP and barely salvageable in b&w! What’s a girl to do? The camera, though, does a fine job when the user doesn’t mess up. The lens is a Xenar, uncoated, which gives it a particularly vintage quality that modern digital do not have.
Sometime ago I created this preset for On1. It cracks me up because it is soooooooo like the postcards I used to love buying, sending, and receiving when I was a kid!
