X-E1

  • Boxing Day On The Boardwalk

    Late this afternoon, we headed down to the boardwalk. For such a chilly, damp night, there were a surprising number of people about. I shot with my Fuji X-E1 and Mamiya-Sekor 55mm f/1.8. Post processing in Snapseed on the iPad Air 2.

  • Too Late For Fall Color? Catoctin Furnace, Thurmont, Maryland

    I’ve been in a slump and a funk for quite some time because, other than my recent trip to New York for PhotoPlus Expo, I haven’t made a photograph in months. I’ve barely even taken a picture! So it was decided that, no matter that I played a gig last night and didn’t get home until after three, I would be getting up early to go make some photographs. I decided, too, that the direction headed would be west, to the area around Thurmont, Maryland, and one of my subject choices would be pretty uncharacteristic for me: fall color, assuming there

  • At The Zoo…

    They tell me it’s all happening at the zoo,I do believe it, I do believe it’s true… On Sunday, we went to join an iPhone meetup group for a photo walk at the National Zoo in Washington. While  I did shoot with the iPhone, I also shot a lot with the Fujifilm X-E1. Here are my iPhone shots: There are a lot of times I find using the iPhone camera(s) to be really frustrating. It’s great for shooting when you can get in

  • Common Ground Roots Music Festival 2014

    Our weekend was spent at the Common Ground Roots Music Festival listening to lots of great music and visiting with some of the people Donna met during her Common Ground classes a couple weeks ago. It was a great weekend. For me, the musical highlights were Professor Louie & the Crowmatix, New Riders of the Purple Sage and Réveillons!, but all the performances were outstanding. We missed seeing Guy Davis, who we saw at the Northeast Blues Festival in Rockport, ME, a few years back. Of course, I did take a few snapshots…

  • Eastern Shore Weekend

    We spent this past weekend on Maryland’s Eastern Shore. Saturday was spent on the upper shore, in and around Easton and Oxford, and on the road to Berlin (near Ocean City); Sunday we went over to Assateague, where we spent some time in the National Park (we took the opportunity to re-up our annual parks pass). I haven’t had a lot of time to work on the images, so they’re presented here “straight.” I’ll select a few to work on in OnOne Perfect Effects and post them over the next few days. We spent most of Saturday

  • Tom, The Fujifilm X-E1, And A Dollar Bill

    Yesterday at the Maryland Renaissance Festival, I chanced to meet Tom, who was shooting with the Fujifilm X-E1. We chatted for a while, and I learned that he is one of a growing number of photographers who have sold off their DSLR gear in favor of the Fujifilm X-system. As you can see, Tom’s a pretty happy guy. We also talked a little bit about the differences between the X-Pro1 and the X-E1, the biggest of which are the viewfinder and LCD screen. The X-Pro1 has a unique feature that allows switching between an old-style optical
