a tree, a very big tree, “my” tree

I’m really just taking care of it for the next owner of my property. Of course, it’s everybody’s tree.

From left to right – river birch (no leaves), live oak (center), river maple, and two bald cypresses. My front yard.

Fujifilm X-T2 with Fujinon XF 18-55mm f2.8-4 R LM OIS zoom lens. Fujicolor Velvia Vivid film simulation.

Taken with my Fujifilm X-T2

Fujifilm Classic Chrome film sim. f10, 1/60, at ISO2500

If you look really close at the stigma you’ll see a tiny red heart (natural). I’m enjoying using my new to me Fujifilm X-T2 at 24.3MP APS-C X-TRANS CMOS III sensor I have a Canon EOS R at 30.3MP full-frame. So far for flowers, I like the slight softness of the Fuji. Thanks for stopping by, Chris

first pics with my new Fujifilm X-T2

How do I love Fuji’s film simulation modes!

Acros standard.
Velvia Vivid.
Rock solid Acros.

I admit, one of the reasons I moved up to the Fujifilm X-T2 was the better film simulation modes over my X-A10 and the addition of 3 Acros versions. I’m a big fan of the film versions of Acros (going back to Neopan) so being able to do that digitally is something I’ve wanted to do. Now I’ll be able to use some of my vintage lenses on the new Fuji and get a near-film look. Thanks for stopping by, Chris
