Following on from my previous post, a couple of weeks after acquiring an old Pentax ES II film camera the perfect opportunity arose to give it a test outing. I enjoy street photography, especially with a group I belong to on Meetup.com, and I stumbled upon another group that looked interesting.
Another short post from me as I’ve just spent an hour “curating” this selection of images and my dinner is calling me!
Today was the Fujiholics London Photo Walk. A great event with about 60+ people attending. Not enough time to speak to everyone, but good to chat with those I did get to speak to, some familiar faces, some new and some surprise meetups with people I’ve met on my walking group.
I’ve paid two visits to The Devil’s Punch Bowl at Hindhead over the past two weeks, firstly on a scouting mission for walking routes and secondly to conduct a 1-2-1 workshop which was then followed by a 2-hour stroll to scout out some more trails.
Last week I attended another photo walk with the Surrey & Hampshire Photography Group. A small group of about 15 walked a route that took us from our starting point at Sloane Square to the Royal Hospital Chelsea, down to the River Thames and over Chelsea Bridge, into and through Battersea Park, crossing back over the river on Albert Bridge, along the embankment, up through Chelsea and into Brompton Cemetery, around 5 miles in total.
Today I became the happy owner of a Fuji X-T1 and a set of 4 lenses.
After trying one out at a Fuji X-perience day and further research since, I made the decision to switch and now was the best time to buy with fantastic cash-back offers from Fuji about to come to an end.
What better way to celebrate than with a test shot taken on the 35mm f/1.4 to check out the limited depth of field it produces?
