I’m going to rewind a bit before I get into the main point of this post… which is “thanking my awesome wife Gi.”
I made a pact to myself a while ago with photography as my full time career; I would never stop taking pictures for myself, first and foremost. Photography for me was something found and was driven by passion and love. So, no matter how busy my day was, I always looked forward in shooting for fun. What I found as time went on was the difficulty in grabbing my commercial gear to capture things that interests me, since it was either packed away after a job or since my tools are my bread and butter for a living… it just got a little weird walking around with a $5000 camera for fun.
So… why is Gi super awesome amazing? She rocks NOT because she totally surprised me with one of the most highly anticipated camera that’s sold out everywhere right now…. or the fact that she kidnapped me this past weekend and drove to Montreal for a 48 hours mini trip...She rocks because this gift of this little camera put back the spirit of what I love to do… capturing stills for the fun and for the sheer love of shooting for myself.
Gi, Thank you so much for this awesome B-day gift! I don’t know how the heck you found this puppy… but I love it =) I look forward to lifetime ahead of us capturing of things we see with this little tool – Love you lots pie.
As much I’m itching to technically write about my experience with this Fuji X100 this past weekend… lets just say…like my wife….all the good things you heard and how awesome it is… its all true =)
Here are a few pics (edit: all taken with the Fuji X100) I want to share from our 48-hour get away to Montreal.
Love the retro design of this camera..
Prob the best way to travel in Montreal. Bixi Bikes Rocks.
