It seems that my choice of bag I take out each day is dependant on which camera I’m taking out not what I’m wearing!
Today I set off to Bucks Open Studios to see a group of artists and their wares. As I was walking out of the door I thought I’ll put my Fuji X100T camera in my bag just in case I went somewhere else or spotted a poppy field. After seeing the beautiful craft and artwork and parted with some money I realised how close I was to Waddesdon Manor. A place I’ve visit throughout the year and knew it would be relaxing there for the hour I had.
What I forgot that there was an event on tomorrow. They were setting up for it on the front lawn, so the best shot I could get of the front of the house was the one above. I hadn’t brought the convertor lenses out with me so I was using the fixed 23mm lens today and working within its limits. It’s always good to get different angles of a familiar building and gardens, the building shots here are the jpegs straight out of the camera. I liked the different gothic effect the black and white setting on the X100 gave to the honey coloured bath stone of the chateau.
I am finding that this camera is coming out with me more than any other. My phone-camera is staying in my pocket and the pleasure of using the X100 is brilliant, a very usable camera.
The next post will be what photos I managed to take in the gardens today.
