December is not always the best month of the year for photography where I live. The snow has not come to stay and the days are short – which makes it extra dark. But it doesn’t always have to be perfect conditions to make pictures.
Today I took my Fuji X-T2 and the 35/1,4 lens for a short ride in the misty landscape. I was going to the nearby small town Mjölby, to fix some things before Christmas and made some stops on the way. 4 degrees Celsius and mist. Great. At least it was not raining.
In the town, the stores were telling me that it is Christmas time. More so than the gray weather.
Suddenly my best friend Martin – who lives 350 km south of where I live – turned up in Mjölby, and we found ourselves some coffee. He was just passing by, after a long shift on his work [driving trains].
As I wrote before, I used the X-T2 and the Fujinon 35/1,4 today. The lens was one of my two first Fujinon lenses, that I got as I bought the X-Pro 1 back in 2013. It is still my favourite. To get better battery life on the X-T2 I use the batterygrip. The camera gets a lot bigger – which I normally don’t like – but sometimes it is nice to not have to worry about power.
