Cooler than cool

We’re almost at the end of February and it is still miserably cold out there. I think I haven’t seen the temperature go higher than -15 Celsius in like almost two months… I’m done with it, especially our heating bill! But besides the cold, winter is beautiful, there is a minimalistic quality to it. I took some shots last January while taking a stroll with my son in a parc that we often go to… but during Summer :)

You can’t really see it in this pic but the 3d pattern created by the different layers of ice was really cool!

Second impressions

I’m just starting to understand all the features on the Fuji X-pro1. One of the many features which I find super is the double expose option. I had a bit of fun during the Holidays playing around with it and here are some of the shots. I think next Summer will be a great time to explore this option, especially to give it the “taking photos through a window” kind of effect. Like seeing what’s ahead and what’s behind at the same time.

These were taken with a Fuji X-Pro1 and the 18mm 2.0, double expose mode.
Converted with VSCO film simulation plugin in Aperture.
