Generally, my photography pursuits have been focused on natural landscapes. An early morning walk through a forest or a pre-dawn seashore excursion or the sun's first light on the mountain tops is the stuff that drives landscape photographers. I like all those things. I also like street photography and always jump at the opportunity to grab my Fujifilm X100T rangefinder-style digital camera and it the streets.

I have finished October as I started it - in New England.  This time in Central Massachusetts.  More Specially, visiting my son at the College of the Holy Cross in Worcester.  It was parents weekend and the social activity calendar was busy.  I did find some time on Saturday in the early AM for some landscape photography.  Not being familiar with the area, I hit Google and Google Maps in search of a nearby state park.  The fall foliage was in full...

Midday Photography can be a challenge especially around water.  The light is harsh, the reflections are unflattering and people are everywhere.  I generally prefer the soft light of a pre-dawn morning along the coastline.  However, on a recent trip to Boston for the weekend I found myself in Rockport Massachusetts on a Saturday afternoon with a Fuji X-E2 and a Fuji 23mm 1.4 lens attached and a couple of hours to fill.  The camera belongs to my wife, the Fuji X-T1 is...
