Denver with the iPhone X

Denver with the iPhone X

This past April I went to Denver for the annual #GSMCON Government Social Media Conference. Normally, I would always travel with my Fuji x100F, but this time I decided to only take my iPhone X and leave behind my beloved x100F.

As I prepare to post my review, I thought I would share a couple photos. I love how my original TCL-x100 Teleconverter looks on my new x100F. I had originally purchased it with my black x100S, but I think I actually like this look better. I’ve now owned every x100 and the love affair just keeps growing with this camera.

Photo of the Day - Naha Backstreets

One of my favorite things to do here is walking the back streets and alleys with my camera. This is a side street near the covered mall in Naha. I shot this with my Fuji x100t.

The Polaroid Camera Reborn

The Polaroid Camera Reborn

The original Polaroid Model 100 Instant film camera was released by Polaroid in 1963. Less than 10 years later, in 1972 Polaroid released the SX-70 fully automatic, folding Polaroid camera which was selling over 5000 per day within a year of it's release. A company named "Impossible" bought the last Polaroid factory in 2008 days before it closed.

Gordy's Cafe in Kadena Town. Best burgers on Okinawa.  Fired this one off remotely using the Fuji app on my iPhone while my X100T was sitting on the table.

The Fukushima Exclusion Zone

The Fukushima Exclusion Zone

French photographers Carlos Ayesta and Guillaume Bression travel to Fukushima's exclusion zone to document the lives of former residents who lived there before the earthquake and tsunami of March 11, 2011. Ayesta and Bression ask residents to return to places from their daily lives before the disaster. The resulting photographs are both sad and powerful. We have seen many images of the damage, but adding former residents to the scenes somehow clarifies and compounds not only the physical devastation but the heavy emotional damage as well.
