Hey Steve

Great site you have! I recently read and really liked your Fuji X10 review – and I am now a very happy x10 shooter.

I have attached 1 image of my late mother. She was a warm and loving woman, but she had a hard

life with anxiety and depressions and she smoked a gigantic amount of cigarettes. She died last year at

the age of 84 – a very peaceful death, were my 18 year daughter, hold her hand, as she took here last breath.


Best regards

  9. Wonderful and very powerful image. Thanks for sharing Martin.

  10. Amazing.

    She loves you.


  11. Very moving picture.

    I too love my X10 despite being a happy M9 and Nex 5n owner, a fixed lens usable zoomed indoors is a rare trait. I wish you the very best and hard life or not, your mother was a very beautiful woman till the end.

  12. very soulful image, she looks so full of happiness for you – can see it in her eyes! May she rest in peace, and she is proud of you, her loving son.
