Open the door, Hornitos.

Hornitos, CA. This was such a cool find. There is just not a lot in this area, but what is left makes you see and hear the ghosts of the past. I shot this with my Fuji X-E1, and once again Fuji proves they are more than capable of capturing and producing wonderful colors. Happy Thanksgiving!

Film View from White Castle

A few weeks ago I shared a photo I took from the top of White Castle using my Fuji X-E1. I thought I would share a 35mm film image taken from the same spot using my Canon AE-1 Program. While I really love the vibrant colors and sharp detail the Fuji offers, I do love the softness is both color and detail this image expresses.

Somewhere near Knighton, Wales…

Hiking along the Offa’s Dyke Path, you’re going to run into a few sheep here and there. They’re decent listeners. This is one of the few photos where I really enjoy the color, but converting it to black and white creates another stunning image I also enjoy. Decisions decisions. Taken with my Fuji X-E1.

White Castle, Wales

Last May, I had wonderful little adventure that took me and my dear friend, Marcy (check out her amazing blog at Illustrated Poetry), across Wales. One of my favorite stops was at White Castle located near Monmouthshire, Wales. Here’s the view from the top. Not bad. Thanks Wales! Taken with my trusty Fuji X-E1. And yes, it is that green. This So Cal girl had a hard time coming back to Brownifornia.
