  • A Little Change…

    I know that I said in a recent post that I am perfectly happy with my Fujifilm X-E1 body. And, in fact, I really am.

  • Home Runs For Fujifilm!

    My local camera shop, Service Photo, hosted a Fujifilm event today, and since I have some time on my hands right now, I decided to head on over to check out Fuji’s latest and greatest offerings.

  • Boxing Day On The Boardwalk
