New Extension Tube just arrived.

My New FUJiFILM Macro Extension Tube MCEX-16 arrived unexpectedly today. Didn’t think it would get here so soon. Bought it on-line from Henrys. I opened the box and it was like a little jewel. No fancy package but wow is it built well. I will be playing with it a lot over the next little while. Here are the 1st shots. The first shot is with my X-T1 and the 23mm f1.4. That is as close as it will focus. The second shot is with the extension tube attached to the 23mm f1.4. Look how close I can get now. This will be so much fun. Both shots were at f1.4 to show the depth of field. I am just starting to play with this thing but 1st impressions are it is sweeeet.

Blue Bike Graphic Art

I have always appreciated the world of Graphic Artists. Some amazing and inspirational stuff is out there. I always wanted to try something with one of my photographs to see what I could do. I shot a photo of me on my bike and came up with these two pieces. The 1st one I call “Ice Blue“. I love the angles and the contrast. It is an image that looks better if you step back a bit. The second one is called “Blue Rain“. I really love riding in the rain when it is really hot out. This image brought back fond memories of younger days training for 24 hour cycling marathons.

Both these shots will soon be hanging on my wall at home.

3 Windows – 8 panes of glass each – 3 Colours (Blue, Orange and White). Plus, if you look, there are 3 candles and 3 stained glass pieces hanging in the windows. This was shot in Peterborough Ontario with my Fuji X-T1 and 56mm f1.2 at 1/550 sec at f4.0 ISO 800. I like walking around Downtown Peterborough once in a while. Just to watch people and see what’s new. You just never know what you are going to “See”.
