    Dawn patrol trip around the block with the 60 macro.
    The bottom (last) pic is of a water meter cover...you can just make out the "WATER" through the rust in the center of the cover.

    Continuing my small car ride, I came across a house.

    Very much like my parents house. That was their world.

    Each house would inevitably have at least one date palm; even to this day.

    I gave my humble little 18mm some time during a recent trip to Cornwall ...



    Used Photo Ninja for processing ... 'green stuff' now looks correct. The Illumination slider reminds me of the Sigma Fill Light for Foveon ...

    A few street shots from last night, just to give a break to my Q7...











    - Ricardo

    Self critique- I need to be more careful shooting at F1.4. Easy to miss focus with moving subjects in particular since DOF is pretty shallow. Maybe start using F2.0 for some shots.

    OK, *that* is bizarre! Where is that? Are the "scratches" lights in long exposure or some overlay, double exposure?

    Thanks guys for the ' likes '.

    Oh, that is a shopping center not far from my home. My wife popped in there to get a pair of shoes.


    Apple and Leica have a store there lost amongst some French haute couture shops.

    The 'scratches' are a filter by Alienskin sw. That is a ' bizarre' name.

    I was actually sitting on a sidewalk outside Starbucks when I saw my wife and took this image.

    Another one...

    Re: Fun with the Fuji X-E1

    @Ricardo - Boy do I hear you on shooting at f/1.4. It is very difficult even with an X-E1's APS-C size sensor to get an entire face into focus at f/1.4. Frankly, I think you will find you end up going to f/2.8 or even f/5.6 most of the time to get the results you are looking for. Depth of Field at f/1.4 is pretty razor thin for most things.... but real great to have when you feel the need for speed

    @Rayyan - Thanks again for sharing the story. You are a good storyteller my friend! And what a wonderful interesting place you live and photograph. Thanks for sharing it with us all.

    @Everyone else - GREAT work here folks. Looking back to the start of this thread, it is pretty amazing how much everyones work keeps improving.

    Re: Fun with the Fuji X-E1

    @Chuck- not disagreeing with the intent and idea of what you said :-) - well it can certainly be done- I did get some F1.4 in focus shots :-) Remember also the distance (I am sure you know this already). For example the B&W woman walking - and yes, I needed the speed to freeze her :-) The guy dancing would have been another shot perhaps doable but I needed to pre-focus somewhere else.

    But yeah, I have to be more careful or perhaps use my XE1 a bit more to get that "intuition lock" I talk about :-) Thanks for the comment. I should consider F2.0 at least in these darker situations if I am close.

    @Chuck. Grateful for your encouragement and appreciation Chuck.

    Thanks for making me a story teller!! Maybe you remembered the 1001 nights! Actually we refer to it as ' 1 and a 1000 nights ' ( Lail wa alf laila ).

    About dress; ( Different cams here Chuck; I am married to a woman but not to a camera and neither in love with any cam ).

    Dress; At places in my country she sometimes dresses like this..


    But when in Montreux...


    In the Emirates, mostly the same as back home..


    But you cannot be trekking and climbing near Chamonix with that dress; so..


    Once in a while we meet in the plains ( she is usually up in the mountains ), we dress very informally...


    And when the TV folks want to film in my house..


    I certainly do not find all this bizarre.

    Take care Chuck and my best to you and yours.

    Re: Fun with the Fuji X-E1

    Rayyan, she looks to be a true woman of mystery & imagination. And clearly she is a wonderful companion. My friend, you are a very lucky and truly blessed man.

    I hope you have a station wagon for travel, given the luggage needs to hold all of those different changes of clothes!

    I too am a very lucky man. My wife has many talents, not the least of which is the ability to put up with an old curmudgeon like me. Here are a few of her & her rock band I shot with my X-E1 w/35 f/1.4 wide open at her last gig. This is one of currently three bands she plays in, so bizarre is a common household event around here The grandchildren delight in telling all their friends that their grandmother plays bass and sings in a rock band.

    Chuck, those are wonderful images. I am sure the kids must be thrilled indeed.

    Yes my friend, we both are indeed blessed.
    To have somebody to share our lives with and return home to.

    Ayesha and I wish you both the best for now and the future.

    Warmest regards.

    Thank you. I am very impressed with it as well, William. I find that I default to Lightroom a lot, just because of familiarity with the software, but in many ways, Capture One is far superior. I find that in most instances it seems like it gives me significantly greater dynamic range.

    I have been using LR for quite some time but today I use mostly C1P with my Nikon or Fuji cams. Excellent color and dynamic range is great too. So far very happy :-)

    @RonSmith- I like the texture/subject of your last shot quite a bit. I would experiment different angles with light on this. That back wall texture along with the vase is really interesting.

    Thanks Ricardo! I took that the other evening in my family room. I need to re-shoot it and try to get the horizontals lined up better.
