I spent the last week in Paris. The natives are friendly! I wish I could speak French better but many Parisians know enough English to communicate well. I have to admit though, as much as I like Paris it was nice to have a Starbucks close to our hotel.
I brought the new Fuji X-Pro 1 camera with me. It looks like a Leica – think Henri Cartier-Bresson. It is lighter, smaller, and more discreet than the ever present DLSR. It takes as good as pictures as my Canon 5DII and is much better in low light situations. It was a hate/love relationship! First I hated it and was thinking of returning it. After a week of learning it’s features I have come to love it. The image quality is incredible.
Most of my picture taking has been street photography. If you click on the link to my Tumblr account you can view some of my favorites images so far.
Off to Provence!
Merci. Au revoir.
