#595. Two (and a bit) weeks, two cities and just one camera

What if it breaks down?   What if I want a wider view?   What if I want a longer view?         I almost succumbed and packed an X-Pro and a couple of lenses. Even as late as the morning of our departure, I reasoned that there

#591. The Monday Post – Blogging DearSusan style (8 May 2017)

  Over the years, I’ve collected several hundred URLs as bookmarks, each pointing to a photoblogger of one stripe or another. Lots of them have provided unwitting assistance, much of which has guided me well, others just offered direction, a daily image or some sage words.   Bored and between

#543. The Monday Post (2 January 2017)

  Pascal’s last Monday Post might have been an easy to skip piece for many of you. After all, the Interwebs delivers incredible stuff – right to your desktop.   Indeed it does. It also does some bad things, too.           Here’s one; it’s my story,

Author Chris Gibbons is a journalist, radio and TV broadcaster and marketing/management consultant, living in Knysna in South Africa.   Morocco was imminent. I’d not been there before but Lonely Planet’s guide book laid out a tempting array of delights for the casual travelling photographer. Apparently I could take my

#533. Japan – on the streets

A final Japan post to bring together a collection of black and white images – OOC JPGs using Fuji’s Acros emulation – shot on the streets of Tokyo, Nagoya, Kyoto and Osaka. Mainly shot with the X-Pro2 and either 23mm f1.4 or 35mm f1.4.

#531. Osaka colour

Osaka. Huge industrial city. Busy.   Another view of modern Japan, in that it’s a city of contrasts; brutally, digitally modern alongside glimpses of a different life, more cultured and ordered. Much as it’s been for centuries.   Tech note; all images shot with the Fuji X-Pro2 and either Fuji’s

#528. Kyoto colour

Kyoto. A city with links to Japan’s history, stretching back centuries.   We managed a couple of days – a kind of taster visit, to help us decide if we wanted to spend longer next time.   Yes. We do. It’s a great city.   What does it look like?

#527. Nagoya colour

Last week Tokyo. This week, Nagoya.   Continuing the theme started in the capital – rich Fuji-style chroma colour.   There’ll be more images from Kyoto and Osaka shortly, perhaps a collection of faces collected from our tour across the country. In the meantime, here’s Nagoya.

#525. Tokyo colour

  Hotel-bound. Crocked.   I’m not feeling too sharp today, so I’m contenting myself with a feet-up (literally) day off, some editing and watching South Africa and Australia battle it out in Perth, via Cricinfo’s ball-by-ball coverage.         I’ve been shooting lots of Tokyo-ites in Fuji’s black
