Norway duo – the Fuji X-T10 camera at work

Thought for the day….”If we were meant to stay in one place then we would have roots instead of feet’

“Holding on to anger is like drinking poison and expecting the other person to die’  (Buddha)

The photo today comes from Svolvaer, the ‘capital’ of the Lofoten Islands in Norway.   About 4500 people live in this town which was built on cod fishing.  Nowadays, summer tourism is very important with about 200 000 tourists visiting each year.   It is served by ferries from Bodo on the mainland and also by a regional airport.  Day trips operate from here to the nearby Trollfjord and also Rafsundet.  Being Norway, everything is VERY VERY expensive, making a holiday here a costly trip.   When a Norwegian is asked to name something that is cheap in Norway, they usually struggle to think of ANYTHING that is cheap.   The words ‘cheap’  and ‘Norway’  do not go together.

and another photo…..the very small village of Urke in the Norwegian fjords.  Both of the photos today were taken as jpegs using the Fuji X-T10 camera.

End of the day…..sunset time

Thought for the day….” Some days you just have to create your own sunshine”.

“If opportunity does not knock then build a door”.

Is it my imagination or are the shops even more crazy this year than in previous years?  Just had ‘Black Friday’ and ‘Blue Monday’ and now the shops seem to be in overdrive for Christmas.    And yet it seems that each year that there is less actual Christmas spirit and just more and more Christmas panic.      Hard to concentrate on Christmas when the shops are starting it earlier and earlier each year.     As usual, it will be madness in the shops in the last couple of weeks.    Happy to see it over !!

Couple of photos to show just how good the Fuji jpegs are.     Slowly going through the masses of photos and I am trying to delete lots, but it is fun to see some of the better photos.     With the great colours from the standard Fuji jpegs, then I can save a lot of time in not editing RAW files.     Much easier to get a good jpeg that is just as I want it, instead of hours of editing RAW files.      Purists will argue that there is more detail in the RAW files, and that you can adjust them more, but for me, the Fuji jpegs are just right.    Have a look at two photos below and see what you think of the colours…….

Contrasts – One world but different sides

Thought for the day….”To live an extraordinary life, you must resist an ordinary approach”

“Life is like riding a bicycle.  To keep your balance, you must keep moving”  (Einstein).

Two photos to show contrast today….the first photo is from New Caledonia and the second photo from Dhaka, Bangladesh.   One big advantage of the Fuji X camera system is that the photos straight out of the camera (jpeg) are so good.     I have stopped taking RAW photos now, as the jpeg pictures are great.   Much faster to just shoot in jpeg now, and it also means  much less time spent on the computer processing photos (which is great !!).   Purists will argue that a RAW photo has more detail, but it takes a lot of determination to sit at the computer for many hours converting RAW files.    The fun for me is in taking the photos, not in spending hours at the computer trying to get them right.  I still end up with far too many photos but that is digital photography.    Back in the days of 35mm film, when you only had 36 pictures on a roll (38 if you were lucky), then you really had to think before you pressed the shutter.   Not now, with the memory card easily holding 3000 photos and a camera which will take 6 photos a second.

Out of the camera -JPEG photos

Thought for the day…”Dreams do not work unless you do”                 “Do not wish for it, work for it”.

One of the great bonuses of the Fuji X-E1 camera is that the photos straight out of the camera are so good, even in jpeg form.    Previously I would spend many hours with RAW files, adjusting and ‘developing’ the RAW image into finished JPEG photo, but now things are so much easier (and quicker).   The standard jpegs straight out of the camera are so good…..have a look at the 2 photos below.   Great colours, great sharpness and great contrast.  Not quite ‘point and shoot’  but certainly much faster and much easier than previous digital cameras.    And having been so impressed by the quality of the glass in the Fuji lenses, then another lens purchase might just be on the horizon..but will I be able to bring myself to pay the 2000 euros for the new zoom lens??????   Quality costs.
