I do not shoot enough with the XT-1 because a lot of work push me to use other gear, but I start to understand the beast. Need some few hours of practice to exploit his awesome potential.

Not very long ago, I used to live in a house such as this. Not very long ago...
Remember the hot days, when my mother used to ask me to help her at the well, to draw up the water.
The date palms were ( and still are ) our most cherished possession...
Not too long ago.

I've not been out shooting since April.. it's been driving me crazy. To keep myself occupied I have been working on restoring some man cave style antiques. My latest acquisition is below.. won an auction on ebay for this old brass engineer's level. I have to clean it up a bit.. this is how it arrived. I shot it on my desk "at work" this morning. I used the X-E2 and the 18mm with the light from a single desk lamp. Post and border text were done in Photoshop CS6.
This weekend should be different as I have plans to head to West Texas and Caprock Canyon for some day and night photography.
I’ve been contemplating an Xt-1, but have kind of been holding off until there’s an update to the x-pro. Looks great, hope it happens soon!

I took this Friday night near Caprock Canyon in Texas. This is my first use of the X-T1 and 18mm to shoot the Milkyway. While driving to Caprock Canyon I came across an open field with a windmill that fed a small tank for cattle... thought it might make a good foreground for the Milkyway.
Post needs a bit of refineing but wanted to share this with you.

Awesome Jim !
I found that the 18-55 is not that sharp for distant objects, less than the D700 for example. I should have taken the 35 with me but the result is ok.
Hi Nathan, have you got a pic of the bike? Would love to tour Norway but no direct ferry really kills it. Which ferry did you use for your trip to UK? Looked into it a couple of years ago and it meant riding down to Harwich (from County Durham) a ferry to Denmark, ride to the north and catch another ferry! Or, do what I think you did and drive over the bridge to Sweden and up to Norway (Oh the squaring off of my tyres)

Alan, I drove to Malmø, (12 hours from me) overnighted, the a quick dash over the bridge and across Denmark... then the ferry to harwich... I Then drove to Scotland the first weekend I was there to shoot a wedding! (Holiday , what holiday hehe) The speed limits in Denmark are high, over 80 on the motorway.... Sweden 70, and then it all comes to gronding halt in Norway, especially once you get north of Oslo with 50 pretty ,much the highest limit anywhere... :O We have the Lowest speed linits and hoghest fines in europe... Prison is just a twist of the throttle away :O
Pics of bike coming up
This was probably the most colorful and possibly the best Milky Way shot from Friday night. It was taken near Mackenzie Lake 10 miles northwest of Silverton on Tule Creek, a tributary of the Prairie Dog Fork of the Red River. I set up just off the road and waited for the last light of day to fade. This is what I was greeted with. Post in Lightroom.
f/2.0 ISO 1250 30 second exposure.
Nice one Nathan I used to own it's daddy. Bought a Z1B in 1975 (900cc for those who don't know) what a beast and what fun I ride bikes with twice the power these days and don't bat an eyelid
Are you trying to put me off going to Norway? (the word must have got out) Hope you had a good holiday, you were certainly busy.
Getting the thread back on topic and ny way of excusing this idle chit chat.. here is a one off custom bow I picked up while in Scotland... shot wit X-T1 and 56mm
Wow. That brings back some memories, had a similar vintage Kawasaki 650 back in the day. Except mine had wire wheels, single disc in the front and a drum in the back. Put some number plates on it and I used it as a my first club racer. Had to run it the 750 production class and had one guy accuse me of having made impermissible mods because it ran so well.
You have kept yours very nice. Original owner?

While that is nothing by European standards...
This bridge is over 100 years old. It's called the Carpenter's Bluff Bridge. It spans the Red River connecting Texas with Oklahoma near Denison, Texas. It has only one lane and a pedestrian walkway (which is now so rotten you can't use it).
I made my way there last night to photograph it against the night sky from a sandbar on the Red River. Light pollution was an issue but still, it was worth the 75 mile trip. It got me out of the city and kept me busy til about 2am.
Here is a link to a video that will show you how narrow this bridge is as well as how rotten it is in some places: Carpenter's Bluff Bridge - YouTube

Had a fun family shoot yesterday with each member of the family bringing their car along.. ranging from a 50's chevy sidestep pick-up to a 2014 Porsche... more to come but here is the Porsche, X-T1, 18-55 (52mm @ f8) Lit with 2 profoto D1s with Magnum reflectors
Not original owner no, I am only the fourth owner and there are only a few subtle mods.. I was looking for a z650 to do some cafe racer mods to, but this one popped up and its too nice to take the hack-saw to. So this will be staying as it is

Goofing around yesterday while my wife was at a conference and I shot this:
Nothing special at all, until you zoom in. I never imagined I'd be able to see my reflection in a spider's eyes!!!!
Pretty frigging cool if you ask me. Excuse the lack of post-processing and what-not. Quick 'n dirty and wanted to share.

Really nice Rayyan. Beautifully composed, and those clouds are amazing.

Nathan, STOP ALREADY.
I'm developing a new mantra: "I'm happy with my 60mm. I'm happy with my 60mm....."
Great photos by the way.
