After a crazy crazy Summer and Fall, I have the luxury of free time once again. I miss writing and posting photos on my blog. The writing is not so much a struggle as finding the time to take pictures and especially some that I end up liking. Of course I’ve been my family’s private paparazzi for quite some time and I love it but I miss the excitement of roaming the streets in search of a moment or a feeling. Not necessarily to capture it, most importantly to experience it, I sure do miss it… sigh.
Many things happened in the last few months, we totally renovated our basement from scratch, an incredible amount of work but now that it’s done I feel very proud and it’s like we doubled our living space, literally. And so I’m still trying to make my business work in the midst of everything… not easy at all.
On a more positive note, our second son was born mid-October, the joy of having two kids/boys and the life it brings into our house is immeasurable! The lack of sleep and the strange emotional roller coater ride it puts you on, not so much!
To try and keep my sanity, I started putting my Fuji X-pro1 to work. I haven’t had the chance to really take it out for a ride but so far I’ve been really blown away by the optics on the 18/2.0 and the 18-55 not to mention how great the files look!
These were taken with the Fuji X-Pro1
Some street ones
These last shots taken with my Contax 645 before I sold it :( I just shouldn’t justify the cost of film and processing… but I will get another one, one day!
And some of my favorite from last summer with the Hexar AF and some Portra160 :)) love this camera!
For 2015, I would love to post more entries and pictures in my blog. I need to think about it as an exercise, a way to stay sharp and focussed even if I’m tired and don’t feel like it. It just makes me happy when I can record what I have experienced and be able to reflect on it whenever I choose to. And as a bonus, sometimes even others find it interesting :)
I hope 2015 is off to a great start for all of you. Stay curious, be nice to each other and take photos!!
Ohh and I got a new website if you’re interested :)
