I took this shot in 1993 using Fuji Neon 1600 film. It's part of the series from my forthcoming (I hope) book. More Please login or register to view links.
There have been a couple of references in recent threads on the FujiX-Forum to 'Polaroids' - both about the awful little color ones. But long before there were color ones, my family bought a Polaroid Land Camera that made only black & white prints. I don't remember the exact model, but as I recall, it looked a lot like this one:
This was a remarkable purchase for our family, as they were rather expensive, and back then, my family did not waste money on expensive toys.
While making a book about our family's history, I scanned some of the Polaroid snaps taken by my father in the 1950s-1960s and I was amazed at the quality. Always in focus, always nicely exposed, no grain, and a very nice range of soft and subtle tones. [Not very often will you hear me bragging up b&w, so pay attention!]
I would hate for Dr. Land's legacy to become a synonym for crappy photos, so I'd like to show a few of the earlier ones here. (more in the reply)

My iPhone 6+ pic of a piece of Chicago style deep dish pizza.
My stock sale of this pic was featured on the Stockimo Twitter feed yesterday.
Stockimo is an iPhone (only) app based stock agency based in the UK and affiliated with the Alamy stock photo agency.
The pic sold for $250 about three months ago and netted me $100 (40%).
It was processed on my iPhone in Snapseed at the restaurant :cool:.
Thanks for looking,

After several days of vigorous hiking with a backpack full of camera gear in Newfoundland I wanted a day off. I sat down in a comfy armchair on the deck of our rented cabin, mere feet from the ocean shore, expecting soon to doze off. Then I noticed this iceberg in the distance, ran inside and grabbed my Fuji 100-400 lens and X-H1. Then sat down in the armchair again. Just then a few minke whales swam by, followed closely by a swarm of gulls, excited by the fishing opportunity, so the action began.
These photos had to be extensively cropped and processed. There was also a lot of haze, which even the dehaze filter could not eliminate.
The whales stir up the fish, causing them to swim towards the surface. The gulls have long recognized that surfacing whales = food for gulls. The gulls leave their resting places on the rugged cliffs to catch fish surfacing near the whales.
Took my X-H1 t the fish market this morning in Colombo Sri Lanka. It was a photographers paradise, which I probably didn’t exploit as much as I should’ve. Enjoy.

We were lucky to have a bed & breakfast place facing the sea at Knights Town, Valentia Island. We stayed just one night and this rainbow over the lighthouse from the bedroom window next morning was a rare occurrence, the owner told us. Probably the only time the 50-140 was really needed on the whole trip of 1000 miles in six days - otherwise the 16-55 was used virtually exclusively. Still debating whether I need to take both on the next trip. Pleased with the clarity of the big one on the X-H1 at 140mm hand-held - IBIS plus the image stabilisation of the lens certainly supplemented each other as intended by Fuji. I took a few with the 16-55 but the diagonal divide and drama caused by foreshortening were lacking with the wider lens.

A little bit better in the Fraser Valley than yesterday when you couldn’t even see the outline of the mountains.

I wasn't really sure if posting photos of EDC items are frowned upon, but just wanted to share my other hobby.
Been addicted to the edc scene for a few years now and understandably, as a photographer, I take photos and share most of these in the edc communities / forums that I join.
In any case, here are some of them. All of them mostly taken by my ever trusted X-T1 and a very few of my new X-T2.

My first tracked MW shot with the VixenPolarie. The MW is a stack of ten 30 second shots at ISO 6400, the foreground is a stack of ten 20 second shots at ISO 6400 (from a non tracked experiment for comparison). All stacked effortlessly in Starry Landscape Stacker for Mac. I've experimented at home and find f4 with the 14mm eliminates coma in the corners and worth requiring higher ISO values.
The tracked images pulled out the colorful green sky glow, next time I'll experiment with longer tracked exposures.

This is a much simpler panorama of the Southern skies than Please login or register to view links. It shows the 2 Magellanic Clouds quite prominently in the center of the image.
There's actually a lot of detail in the full size image and surprisingly little noise in the sky. And it looks like I had the tracker aligned pretty well, since there's very little star trailing visible. Polar alignment is much harder here in the Southern Hemisphere, since we don't have a big, bright star to aim at, but a rather empty part of the sky without bright, prominent marker stars. But that's a different story...

Aug. 15th 2018, a rainy day.
Once in my time, back in the 1980-ies, I was an aspiring botanist, spending days in summer meadows, taking photos with Nikon F3 and 105 micro Nikkor. Such as this Euphrasia, eyebright:

Walking in the rain today Aug 15th: As any city where I live, the forests around, plenty footpaths are established. To ease walkings, there are bridges of various shapes. And often these are named:

This is my 55 macro. I'm thinking of trying this camera with a Nikon 300mm lens and doing long photographs.

I have been trying to capture the milky way for some time now. I had some bad luck as the days best for milky way photos had heavy clouds. With the recent milky way post I was inspired to try again and finally succeeded.

I go shooting in Detroit about once per week, sometimes more. So I guess I'll just continue to add to this thread. I'm assuming all of these will be shot with my X100F, because my 6D has been collecting dust since I got it. Feel free to add you own shots if you like.

Took this last month in Morro Bay.
Root cellars we built in many parts of Newfoundland (as in some other parts of Canada) before there was refrigeration. This was to keep vegetables fresh and protected from animals during the winter. Some 232 root cellars have been counted so far in the Twillingate area alone. Today they are mostly empty, or used to store more beer than the refrigerator can hold.
Where there was no easy way to dig into a hillside builders simply piled a mound of earth on top of the structure.

The past 10 years our family has been camping at Shaver Lake, California in the summer. The last two years I've been taking my landscape photography a bit more seriously, so this year, I sacrificed my sleep and woke up at 5AM to get the good light on the lake and avoid the boats.
