Guthrie was the territorial capitol at one time. Then Oklahoma City, in the dead of night, I'm thinking around 1910, sneaked in and stole the state seal.
Oklahoma City became the new capitol.
Guthrie is about 45 minutes north of Oklahoma City, or around 30 miles. I spent time there going around and around trying to find the old capitol building and never got the job done. I believe the "now" Masonic temple used to be the capitol.
Anyway, as I toured a few blocks in my hunt, once I gave up and started to leave, I spotted this old, gorgeous house. Around the block and parked. One view is the side, the other the front. The light was challenging because it was the 12 noon to 1 p.m. time, I wasted a lot of time asking questions of people on the street who said, "I don't know, I'm not from here!"
I did the best I could.
X-T2, 10-24

Just a simple candid street style snap taken at Canterbury Kent UK. While I was wandering around I saw this guy taking a nap and thought it was worth a shot. Later I noticed the sign so hence the title Essential Nap.

Having got hooked via the X100T and liking the lack of mass to lug around (and so boosting my tally of photos massively) I've plumped for an X-T1 with the 50 to 230 lens to use when using leg power to compensate for distance isn't an option.
I've been going around in circles regarding choice between the X-T1 and the similarly priced X-T20 but given I'm out in mucky weather at times (and knowing end-of-line prices drop for a while), I opted for a known rather than a relative newcomer as I'm not fussed about the latest, just about if it will do the job.
We'll see if the Pentax gear can be sold on and save a weight on my shoulders. However, I've read that mirrorless cameras may not be as good as DSLR's for fast-moving shots..... Technique?…

Looking at my file numbers, I consistently take about ~10,000 shots every year. I started using X100S in December 2013 and then switched to X-E1 in November 2014.
File numbers go up with every RAW conversion also, but those probably number well under 1000 per year.
If X-E1 shutter is rated at only 100,000 shutter actuations by DSLR standard -- which might mean only 50,000 shutter actuations for mirrorless (because one single-shot picture entails two shutter cycles for mirrorless?) -- maybe I should expect to see my X-E1 shutter to go kaput in as few as 2 years?…

I'm pleased to be back in this forum after a hiatus.
I've been out of "serious" (non-iPhone 7+ [gasp]) photography for a year or so. My main camera is a D750 but before I sold my Fuji gear I really loved the form and function of the X-t1.
If I want the FF flexibility of my D750 for action, BIF, etc... my next question is whether or not I go to the X-T2, or if the X100F is enough for my daily candids, family, street imaging.
The smaller form and function of the X series is what I crave for daily shooting, and I'd really like to wean myself from my dang iPhone for the easy candids (which I'll admit, does have a role as a legitimate back up back up/occasional primary image maker).
Originally, I figured the X-T2 was a no-brainer. But when considering the considerable re-investment in lenses, I wonder if the X100F is a better fit. With that many MP, I can crop down as needed and still come out with really good images.
Is the single SD slot a big drawback? It wasn't with the X-T1, but....
Any and all opinions are welcome. Thank you and I'm happy to be back…

On an illustrators' forum I use, this thread appeared:
"Earlier this week I attended a class at the local Apple store and the subject of Photoshop came up - and the subscription plan one is required to buy into. The class presenter said that it is possible to purchase a single license for the current version of Photoshop. This won't provide access to the frequent updates, but it will be the current version as of the date of purchase. He said this isn't advertised and that you have to be insistent when calling Adobe and asking for it, but says it IS possible to obtain. Has anyone else heard this and tried to get it?"
I don't want to start another "dump Adobe" furor, but I wonder if anyone has heard ofor used this option.

Since I don't have any cameras any more that have two memory cards I will shoot important stuff that can't be reshot tethered and as of now I have an 128gig SD card in my laptops card reader. So I shoot tethered to laptops internal SSD and backup in real time via Goodsync to the SD card, which is in my opinion a convenient way to backup during a shoot. However, is there any application that will be able to backup in real time to both the SD card and a USB memory stick? Or is it just me being overly paranoid and it's not neccessary to have the files at more than two places?…

I turned up at the venue - a pub - to shoot my first live music in 10 years or more. I asked the bartender where the band would be setting up, hoping he'd direct me to some hitherto unseen room with a stage and a lighting rig. 'Over there', he pointed to a table in the corner of the crowded room with a card saying 'Reserved for band', under a single, orange-shaded, low energy bulb.
Oh well - I'm here now. Luckily this was where a mirrorless system, especially my twin Fuji X-T2s, came into its own. Once I'd set my exposure I turned off the preview settings, which made focus a breeze, even in this stygian gloom and the Fuji RAFs' excellent tolerance for pushing in post let me shoot at 800-3200. I shot the whole gig with the 35mm f2 on one (the majority of the keepers) and a Samyang 85mm T1.5 on the other. What could have been a bit of a disaster was saved, I feel, by these great cameras.

Just got the Sailor Strap Skinny Jimmy Deluxe. Not sure if its worth the coin but it appears reasonably well made. I think I let the reviews set my expectations too high. After-all its just a camera strap. Big problem is it doesn't fit. The rings that come with it are too big for the holes in the lug. You can get it through but there isn't enough room for them to rotate. Might be more due to the protective leather guards then the width of the rings but whatever the case it doesn't work on the XE3. I contacted the manufacturer through their webpage both before and after purchase and never got a response. I'll probably keep it because it would cost 20 bucks to return. Decent quality though. I'll put it on another rig…

I have tried several different searches and not found a result. I have an XT1 that I use at weddings to create stop-motion videos. I have the camera all set to manual and on a tripod and then start shooting. But there are breaks in the action where no pictures are taken and if it is long enough that the camera sleeps, the focus changes when I wake it back up.
The same thing happens if I review a picture. No other buttons are pressed, just the preview button, but the focus changes.
Is this some setting or programming on the camera?…

I have tried WD, D-link and Seagate. None of which did what I wanted it to do, which is to be able to be accesable 24/7 via the smartphone app and easy to access whenever I wan't from both my laptop and desktop. All the apps from the (both android and pc) proved to not be reliable, they would be hard to connect to, however, none did disconnect when I succeded to connect, but half of the times I had to restart apps, the NAS itself and so on to be able to connect to it.
I wan't a home NAS so I can drop dropbox. Dropbox have proven to be super reliable though.
I tried the NAS units with different PC's, phones and even different networks in different homes in different cities to be sure that it just wasn't my home network.
Btw I want it to do Raid 1.

Just a simple Macro/Close Up snap taken with an APS-C camera and a Large Format Schneider 120mm Makro-Symmer HM lens, adapted to fit the camera via a set of designed and self made bellows with a lens panel that allows me to use a full set of large format technical movements ie tilt/shift/swing etc. Lighting was via a modified Ring Flash, and I have used a bit of forward tilt to improve depth of field as the maximum aperture of this lens is F5.6.

AUSTRALIAN LETTER - I think the sender might have been upset!
This is an actual letter sent to the DFAT (Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade) Immigration Minister. The Government tried desperately to censure the author, but got nowhere because every legal person who read it couldn’t stop laughing !
Dear Mr Minister,
I'm in the process of renewing my passport, and still cannot believe this.
How is it that K-Mart has my address and telephone number, and knows that I bought a television set and golf clubs and condoms from them back in 1997, and yet the Federal Government is still asking me where I was born and on what date ?
For Christ sakes, do you guys do this by hand ?
My birth date you have in my Medicare information, and it is on all the income tax forms I've filed for the past 40 years.
It is also on my driver's licence, on the last eight passports I've ever had, on all those stupid customs declaration forms I've had to fill out before being allowed off planes over the past 30 years
It's also on all those insufferable census forms that I've filled out every 5 years since 1966.
Also... would somebody please take note, once and for all, that my mother's name is Audrey, my father's name is Jack, and I'd be absolutely bloody astounded if that ever changed between now and when I drop dead !!!
SHIT! What do you people do with all this information we keep having to provide?
I apologize, Mr. Minister. But I'm really pissed off this morning.
Between you and me, I've had enough of all this bullshit!
You send the application to my house, then you ask me for my bloody address!
What the hell is going on with your mob? Have you got a gang of mindless Neanderthal arseholes working there!
And another thing, look at my damn picture. Do I look like Bin Laden? I can't even grow a beard for God's sakes. I just want to go to New Zealand and see my new granddaughter. (Yes, my son interbred with a Kiwi girl). And would someone please tell me, why would you give a shit whether or not I plan on visiting a farm in the next 15 days? In the unlikely event I ever got the urge to do something weird to a sheep or a horse, believe you me, I'd sure as hell not want to tell anyone!
Well, I have to go now, 'cause I have to go to the other side of Sydney , and get another bloody copy of my birth certificate - and to part with another $80 for the privilege of accessing MY OWN INFORMATION!
Would it be so complicated to have all the services in the same spot, to assist in the issuance of a new passport on the same day?
Nooooo…that'd be too bloody easy and makes far too much sense.
You would much prefer to have us running all over the bloody place like chickens with our heads cut off, and then having to find some 'high-society' wanker to confirm that it's really me in the goddamn photo! You know the photo... the one where we're not allowed to smile?...you bloody morons.
Signed - An Irate Australian Citizen.
P.S. Remember what I said above about the picture, and getting someone in 'high-society' to confirm that it's me?
Well, my family has been in this country since before 1820! In 1856, one of my forefathers took up arms with Peter Lalor. (You do remember the Eureka Stockade!)
I have also served in both the CMF and regular Army for something over 30 years (I went to Vietnam in 1967), and still have high security clearances. I'm also a personal friend of the president of the RSL.Lt General Peter Cosgrove sends me a Christmas card each year.
However, your rules require that I have to get someone "important" to verify who I am; you know...someone like my doctor - WHO WAS BORN AND RAISED IN BLOODY PAKISTAN!..a country where they either assassinate or hang their ex-Prime Ministers - and are suspended from
the Commonwealth and United Nations for not having the "right sort of government"..
You are all pen-pushing paper-shuffling bloody idiots!

Hi all,
I’ve been shooting my own smartphone wallpaper images since Apple took away the wet grass image that came with the early iPhones. I like simple images, that aren’t too much of a distraction, and I only change them about twice a year.
Below is a screenshot of my current wallpaper, taken with the X-T1 and an adapted Minolta MD 50 f/1.7.
What about you? Do you also put your Fuji-X images on your phone? Post them here!

I'm very new to Fuji x and photography in general. I want buy the xf 10-24 f4 for my vacation next month. But I'm hearing that 8-16 f2.8 is right around the corner. Should I wait for 8-16. Things that turn me off for 8-16 is no OIS and what appears to be a permanent lens hood. Also im guessing it will be much more expensive. Any suggestions? I'll be using it for street and landscape. I'm not a professional…
