Long time reader and I love you site!!!! It has helped me so much since starting this obsession called photography. I am a relative newbie and found your site and have been hooked ever since. It was my dream to own a Leica since following you but I decided to go with Fuji instead and started off with the x100 and then purchased the X pro 1 and all it’s lenses when it came out. I’ve since purchased a Fuji Klasse S point and shoot film camera and have been experimenting with film and I love it thanks to Ibraar Hussain’s posts.
I live in Winnipeg Manitoba Canada and it’s not the most beautiful part of Canada to find yourself in. I recently visited a place in my city that I had no idea was there, the oldest running train in North America. The Prairie Dog Central Railway has been running a steam engine locomotive built-in 1882, the train was really cool and the ride down the prairies track was awesome but to me what made this trip special is some of the amazing volunteers that run the train. I’ve always been drawn to environmental portraits and I love what you’ve written about the 35mm focal length, there is just something about it. My X pro 1 is in the shop getting a sensor cleaning so I was shooting with the x100 and most of these shots are straight out of the camera jpegs with very little done to them. I don’t know if these are good enough for your site as I’m really a newbie but I thought I’d send it in to share it with you anyways. In addition I didn’t know which ones were the best as I’ve never had anyone critique my photography before so I kind of broke your 3 shot rule sorry. Even if they don’t make it in if you have the time I would love to know what I can do better.
All the best your fan
