I participated in a Fujifilm instameet this month and was fortunate enough to borrow an X-Pro2 and a 56mm f 1.2 lens. The X-Pro2 is bigger and heavier than my X-E2. The hybrid viewfinder took some getting used to and I’m not quite sure how I would like it with a zoom lens, but overall, it was pretty sweet.
The lens, however, I fell in love with immediately. This image shows one of the reasons why – at f1.2, the focal depth is just a sliver.
The details: Fujifilm X-Pro2 with XF56mm f1.2. 1/500th @f1.2, ISO 200

We have a number of pots in the backyard we have used in the past to grow tomatoes. A couple of them have been neglected for a while and one of them is growing a hearty crop of moss. This tiny forest seems to have sprouted and is well on its way to becoming its own thriving ecosystem.
The sprouts in this picture remind me of the rain we’ve had so much of recently – most of it coming down at a similar diagonal.

My Aunt was going through some things in storage and came across several boxes full of these tiny perfume bottles. Grandma Anita had been collecting these for years, souvenirs from travels and presents from friends and other family members.
It was really interesting to go through all these little bottles and imagine the accumulation of fingerprints from children and grandchildren on each bottle over the 40+ years Grandma collected them.
