Fancy photo-graphical types get to go to exotic places. David Hobby and Dubai, Zach Arias and Istanbul, Pooneh Ghana and just about anywhere there’s music, Chase Jarvis and New Zealand (ki ora) all spring to mind. Even Patrick La Roque, who inspires by his ability to create great photos, often without travelling from home and thus showing that creativity really does lie within, gets to go to Cuba.
Lowly ‘ol expatriate photo peasants like myself just have to make do with the mundane down the road (what’s the emoticon for ‘tongue in cheek’ anyway?). *
All of these are Fujifilm X100s straight out of camera jpegs. Only thing done was resizing them for the web (and no doubt some mangling by the blog software).
SOOC it to me baby.
*Apparently it’s :-J
Addendum: it’s good advice to show only one’s best photographs, which is not what I’ve done here. I’ve put up everything from the day out that wasn’t total rubbish. Perhaps I’ll post what I think of as the best ones some other time.
