Shoot the Moon, or Have Fun


Last evening, I did a 10-sec. run outside in the cold wind and grabbed an image of the moon with the Olympus E-M1 Mark II and the 14-150mm lens zoomed out all the way.  I’m not even sure why I did it since I have made such images many times over the years with lots of different cameras and lenses.

After I went back inside and checked to see if I got it, I had another thought.  I get no real joy out of using the Olympus gear, but I do enjoy using my Fuji X100F, so I started wondering what I could do with it.  The following is one of the images.


This morning it was 14 degrees when I got up before dawn and noticed the following while walking through the living room.  It was a lot more fun to see what I could do with the X100F, so I made a few images as the moon was shining through the rear windows.

Later as I was downloading the moon images into my computer, I looked up to see the first hints of morning light starting to show on the horizon, so I picked up the X100F and made the following through the window.  It was still 14 degrees out and I didn’t want to go out.


The thought that I would like to share with you is that I prefer to use the Fuji X100F and see what I can do with it.  I put the Olympus gear back in the drawer for now and will continue thinking about what I might be able to do with the X100F as the weather improves.
