Pop’s Place

Been having sporadic access to the internet due to a move, but hope to have broadband in the new house by 8 September, so off to Starbuck’s in Redding is was to process this one for today. Pretty interesting working in here with the Wacom Intuos 4 tablet as it invites a lot of questions. Anyway, here’s a shot I grabbed recently with the ol’ X100, which is always by my side these days.


Don’t get me wrong, I love my big DSLR (currently the Nikon D700) and all the great lenses I have, but dang they get to be a pain in the butt to carry around sometimes.  So when I want to be high-speed, low-drag, and until I one day manage to get my hands on a Leica M rangefinder, I reach for my Fuji X100.  With its small size, classic looks and awesome features, this bad boy satisfies all my needs when it comes to street photography and much, much more.  I shot this photograph of a set of mailboxes while out on a morning walk with my wonderful wife, who I think is a lot more patient with me shooting with this (takes less time) than with my big rig and tripod (too much set up time and finagling for her tastes).
