Busy Weekend with the Fuji Family ;)


Jun 30, 2012
Had a pretty eventful weekend with the Fuji cams this weekend, took the X-E1 and X100S with me everywhere I went and managed several photo ops, thought I'd share just for fun :)

Started out Friday night with a trip to downtown Clinton, NJ for a walk through the historic district (see my other thread for more).

We walked until sundown, then had dinner as the lamps were lit.

Saturday we went back to town for a quick stop at ChocoDiem for some excellent Belgian chocolate. I spotted a beautiful old Honda bike out for a wash and basking in the sun, and snapped a few pics before chatting with the owner briefly.

Then it was on to the diner for some lunch where my wife and I traded portraits and I managed an abstract self portrait ;)

Then on to the dog park with our pups for some fun and a chance to run.

Since I'm taking some photo lessons and we're focusing on flash use, I couldn't resist the chance to play with the X100S built-in flash to override the sun at the park.

Sunday morning we attended our church, Liquid, and I snapped a few shots of the worship band doing what they do best :thumbsup:

And finally my wife took me out for a 'surprise' trip which turned out to be the last covered bridge still left standing in NJ. She even brought out her camera for this trip and I helped her get a few shots of her own :)

We traded portraits again at dinner and I taught my wife how to focus the X100S and work the exposure comp dial. I think she did pretty good for her first time out :)

Very, very nice. Especially the self-portrait and the band.
Good to see you had a great time.

That's a very nice collection of images, I particularly like the 2nd doggy shot (great eyes and expression), and the fine detail of the lily - good work :)

Some beautiful shots here, I like the subdued colour palette in the coloured ones. Th bridge look like the one in the film The Bridges of Madison County, Clint and Meryl :)
