I can’t think of a trip that I’ve taken recently when the Fuji 56mm f/1.2 hasn’t joined me. Before purchasing, I looked at a lot of samples around the web and they always impressed me. It’s one of the reasons I’m still hooked on the Fuji X Mount system. There is some excellent Olympus glass […]Read More Still Lovin’ the Fuji 56mm f/1.2
I saw an artist a while back that featured an interesting series of high contrast black and white images of architecture. I really liked what I saw and wanted to try a few images of my own.

A few weeks ago I got behind the wheel of a track prepped Lotus Exige, a day that I will not soon be forgetting.
