The Fuji X100 goes everywhere with me now. I think there’s only been one day in the past month when I went out with my Nikon D700 instead of the Fuji. It may not be pocket-sized but it can certainly get the shots I want. And of course, the more time I spend with it, the better I’m getting (hopefully).
Let’s start with this shot of the temple in Sai Kung town – ISO 3200, 1/40th of a second, F/2:
This is literally the result of hanging out with some friends at Anthony’s Ranch, glancing over and thinking how nice the temple looked and grabbing this image with very little fuss or bother.

Later that week, walking around Sheung Wan during lunch time, didn’t quite get the shots that I wanted (need to work more on pre-visualization) but liked the name of this shop!
Last for now, some shots of Icebox at Amazonia. The constantly changing lighting there is challenging and I often end up spending a lot of time in Lightroom adjusting color. Here’s Willy, the amazing lead guitarist.
Here’s one of those shots that I plan to go back and do again:
Here’s Edwin, Icebox’s version of Keith Richards:
When you’re working with a very narrow depth of field and you have just a split second to react, you need to be lucky. Here’s a couple of times that I got lucky that night.
Yes, more to come.
