It’s getting colder with fall weather so I don’t think many will be out to view the finished product at least until next summer, assuming that it is finished by then. Until then, it is dark, barren, and only to be seen by the ghosts of others passing by.
It might surprise you but I find that the Fujifilm 50mm F2 WR lens is my most versatile lens when I walk with my X-Pro2 camera. I like that prime lens since it is the best compromise in weight, size, weather resistance, close focusing, and focal length versatility when I go walking. I can use it inside along with cropping in poor light situations as well as outdoors with cropping. You might be thinking that a zoom lens would be more versatile but they are larger and heavier and I mostly use them when I’m fixed in a small area and I don’t need to carry them while walking over longer distances. I actually prefer to carry only one small pancake lens on my X-Pro2 but they are more limited in focal length capabilities. I sometimes use the X-Pro2 with one prime lens along with the X-H1 and another prime lens when I’m photographing an event while walking in narrow halls.
Somedays, most days if I’m truthful, I just prefer to walk with a small, lighter weight camera and lens combination. These days that would be my X-Pro2 with the 18mm lens which is an effective 28mm focal length. It is an older, noisy focusing lens, but it does the job and I like the focal length when I can also get up close enough to static subjects. I find that it makes a nice documentary lens. I should use it more often. I wish Fujifilm would update the lens with a quieter focusing motor and make it weather resistant.
If I had more use for this focal length; i.e. if I went anywhere worth documenting what I saw, I would probably buy a small pocket camera with this focal length … maybe the Ricoh GRIII camera, especially if I wanted to make B&W images.
Today is the last day of a good old fashioned book sale at Homewood at Plum Creek.
Friday evening I made some new pictures of the Homewood at Plum Creek band. Homewood will get the color versions so I made one in B&W just for this post.
I took advantage of the good weather yesterday to make some images of the smaller cottages here at Homewood at Plum Creek. Some prefer the newer larger Villas but I think the cottages encourage more social interactions and friendliness among the residents.
By the way, Homewood at Plum Creek has a nice website which has lots of information, like the floor plans, etc. along with lots of pictures.
