More Scenic Photos - Fuji X100
My recent purchase of a X100 has given me a new lease of photographic life!
Love this camera, enjoy using it.
Attached are a few recent efforts taken in a nearby rural village.

Lovely images there! The X100 certainly has a certain something about it that makes the images special.
Camera - Sigma DP1m & DP2m
If I can make just one person smile then I've had a good day!

Thanks Andy & Ghosthunter,
As an aging amateur photographer, I guess I was getting a little jaded. I love photography but was starting to get lazy, thinking 'been there, done that'. Then I read about the X100, saw the photos people on this forum were taking with it, result - enthusiasm rekindled!

Nicely done, Glyn. The X100 certainly gets close to "photography as I remember it". The quality of shots are great, and I just love those old cottages!

Yep, I agree with everyone! It is the kind of camera that is like what you USED to have and remember with fondness. I have recently purchased another one after stupidly selling mine and it's just like being in a different world :-)
Current gear: Panasonic LX7, Fuji X100, Fuji X-E1, Fuji XP50

Good for you, thekeddi. I agree, there is more than element of retro about the X100. However, it's also a fantastic camera in its own right. Before buying, I looked at the many rave reviews by professionals & amateurs. I looked at fantastic shots even at F2 and/or 1600+ iso. I knew I had to have this camera. My first series of test photos were a mess, mainly focussing & exposure issues. My fault! I should have read the instructions & users advice first. Now focussing & exposure is no longer a problem. I've only had the X100 for about 3 weeks so still on a learning curve, reading up on experienced users tips etc (thanks guys, male & female :-) ). But this camera has so much to give, the learning curve is fun.

Nice set of images Glyn, I feel exactly the same way about my X100 and it is an easy to carry dream to use camera.
The images look very much like houses in Cheshire where I used to live, where are they?
Thanks for sharing,

I lived in Chester for many years and remember the superb old B&W buildings in surrounding areas.
