Long ago in a galaxy far away I once started with a few analog Canon EOS cameras. Thanks to that I learned all about apertures and shutter settings, but creatively I’ve learned the most in photography the moment I joined the digital SLR revolution. However even though I owe much to those cameras, after 12, 13 years for me photography became rather a dull activity and I started to really loose interest. As I like both the product of photography as the mechanism that makes it work, I needed something to get me spiced up again.
When I arrived back from Italy last month, I hadn’t yet fully filled the film rolls in my cameras. What followed was a full week of terrible weather and I waited until the last weekend of my vacation to take a bicycle ride to Gasteren in Drenthe to shoot the last set of photos.
Wanted to try out the ‘new’ 1973 Leica Elmar-C 90mm lens and the quickest results are of course on the Fujifilm X-Pro1, so I mounted the lens on the X-Pro1 and went for a walk tonight.
