    Wasn't sure what to make of this guy today in the Dam Square as he kept turning in all directions... after I snapped this photo I tossed some coins in the bucket and suddenly he turned around posing like a model. Go figure.

    Jim, glad the diopter is working out for you. No need for an X-E1 now?

    Gotta think this through... EX1 would be primary or secondary body plus a big discount on the 18-55 if bought as a kit... but yes, the diopter is what was needed on the X-pro1.

    I've been going through my legacy glass tonight: Minolta, Canon and Leica. I have adapters for all but tend to favor the Minolta glass.

    Jim , I thought I replied to this earlier today, but my reply has vanished into a black hole someplace.

    I have decided to stick with the XP-1 for now and skip the E-X1 even if I lose out on the package deal with the zoom. I am more interested in the 14mm and 23mm primes by Fuji at present. I will see what Fuji produce in the way of another pro body in a couple of years.

    I do have an OM-D with good zooms for walk about use. Also have kept the GXR A12M mount for use with my Leica/Zeiss/CV lenses. I'd love a Leica M, but that will have wait. The Sigma DP2M is also very attractive, but I'm waiting to see what raw support arrives first.

    Cheers

    OK Godfrey, March-April can be quite nice here, though usually May June is better for sunshine. Of course you may prefer our spring wet and windy weather for a change from west coast sun!

    I'd take that break right now. Been a week of 85-95 F averages. Yesterday heading up the freeway at 3pm, the outdoor ambient temperature on my car's readout was 107 F. Not my favorite weather.

    When the trip plan firms up, I'll post with my expected whereabouts. :-)

    When I lived in Germany I thought too. Now 90F can be ok but yesterdays 106F was no fun.

    The ZM85 is nice. I often just focus at infinity in these shots.

    I'd noticed that

    Very different cameras, so you can happily continue with both in your life (for now)?

    Yes Uwe, have been following the DP2M thread also. An intriguing camera, but not sure if it is for me though.

    Only you can answer that question.

    By the way it turns out that using 45-55mm fixed focal length for our work is great (DP2M 30mm and X-Pro1 35mm).

    Note: gave my 18mm back.

    18mm & X-Pro1 go to the State Fair of Texas

    A friend an I took the train into Fair Park in Dallas for the State Fair of Texas last night. I took a lot of shots but was to beaten down today to work on them save this one.. which for some reason really appeals to me.

    Thursday nights at the State Fair are slow.. and therefore they have made it Senior Night.. lots of gray hair their and as both my friend and I have more than enough gray.. we got in free for Senior Night. That was a savings of $16 each... you gotta love old age.... Needless to say the midway was more than a bit sparse in human activity.. lots of walkers and wheel chairs and scooters were milling about but we managed to avoid being hit by any of them... anyway, I like it when the fair is a bit deserted.. so here is the one shot I have worked on so far from that outing.

    This was taken using the X-Pro1 and the 18mm. I find the 18mm to work quite well for the things I like to shoot.

    B&W from today

    Spent the day chasing trains in East Texas. This was taken at the depot in Palestine, Texas. I've had a love for steam trains since I was a kid. Rode one from LaCrosse, VA to Chester, SC with my Aunt and Grandmother to visit relatives. I will never forget it. The sounds, hissing steam, that lonesome whistle in the night, the smell of burning coal, the motion of the cars and so much more.. all echos from another time. Seeing this old locomotive today brought back a lot of memories. You can read more about the Texas State Railroad here.

    Fuji X-Pro1 and 18mm ISO 800 f/8 1/200s. Post in Photoshop CS6.

    Jim, yes, I also miss the old steam trains. When I went to school we still had steam running in Scotland, and later I remember going round the scrap yards seeing the old steam engines being scrapped, very sad when they were all gone. There are still a few running from Rail Preservation societies though. The preserved ones are in much better condition than the dirty black ones I remember running in the 60's.

    David, it is sad that these beautiful old locomotives ended up on the scrap heap.. no vision for future generations at all... just salvage and profit.

    Here is one more I took from where a country road crosses the tracks in the Piney Woods of Texas. Note the railroad ties stacked on the siding. The tracks somewhat parallel the main road between Palestine and Rusk, Texas.. so we would leapfrog ahead of the train, find a country road that crossed the tracks and wait for it. We did this about four times.. resulting in a number of different backgrounds and angles... so I spent my Saturday "Chasing a Train".

    The X-Pro1 & The Haunted Hotel in Maydelle, Texas

    This is the Cushing Hotel in Maydelle, Texas.. somewhat of a wide spot in the road between Palestine, TX and Rusk, TX.

    Of course the hotel is not haunted.. in fact, the building was never a hotel. It was actually a bank in the early 1900s and later was a hardware store and market, so some of the locals told me. So why the hotel sign if it was not a hotel?

    The Cushing Hotel sign was put on the building when the movie "The Long Summer of George Adams" starring James Garner was filmed there in 1981. The movie was about a town called "Cushing, Oklahoma" and that is the reason for the sign being on the building.

    I saw this building while I was waiting to photograph the steam locomotive that makes its way through Maydelle on its way to Rusk. I had to shoot it. It just had too much character for me to pass it by.

    Shot with the Fuji X-Pro1 and the 18mm. Post work in Photoshop CS6.

    Here is one more I took from where a country road crosses the tracks in the Piney Woods of Texas. Note the railroad ties stacked on the siding. The tracks somewhat parallel the main road between Palestine and Rusk, Texas.. so we would leapfrog ahead of the train, find a country road that crossed the tracks and wait for it. We did this about four times.. resulting in a number of different backgrounds and angles... so I spent my Saturday "Chasing a Train".

    Always stunned by you B&W work.

    Yes Uwe, I agree, I love Jim's steam B&W too.

    Thanks.. appreciate that... These old locomotives just beg to be B&W.. just wish I had more time and more subjects. I know California has several old rail proejects.. maybe on my next trip out there I will visit a few if time permits.

    by the way... I took the Pentax K5 along for this as well and the photos I got from the K5 did not come close to the detail the X-Pro1 was delivering.. that AA filter on the K5 seems to be the culprit.

    And.... I have decided I simply MUST get that 18-55.. I really needed a zoom on the X-Pro1 when I was shooting those train shots.. zooming with your feet works but it is the time element that is restrictive. I just did not have the time to foot zoom on some of these as the train was moving.. the zoom would have allowed for many more shots.

    Nice day today down at St Monans Harbour. Went to do some infrared, but not very happy with the results, but quite pleased with this colour one.
