Dispatches from Misty Vancouver
While the usual January weather in Vancouver means rain and… more rain, this year has been nothing but unusual. We’ve had numerous days of intense fog in the morning and beautiful sunshine in the late afternoon. As you may expect, such conditions have kept us awake and sharp-eyed, especially in the morning.
I notice that I enjoy photography the most when I leave my house with the Fuji X100S/T as my only camera. There’s something liberating in this approach that is hard to describe. Somehow, our creativity is flowing, our seeing is enhanced and our senses are tuned to the surroundings.
Sometimes I also take the Fuji X-T1, our favourite wide-angle lens XF 14mm F2.8 and super sharp XF 56mm F1.2 lens. In fact, I notice that these three focal lengths meet 99% of my visual demands. The longer we are involved in this art of seeing, the less and less equipment we need.
So when you start in photography, start with one lens and one camera. Master one focal length and only then add another perspective. Three prime lenses are plenty, four is abundance and five is a superfluity.
But enough of these incoherent ramblings; here are the images.
