Ballarat Railway Station: two sparrows 

I recently read a quote from a respected photographer, who recommended not having film negatives processed for print until a year had passed, to give the photographer distance from the emotion connected to the moment the photo was taken. It’s a notion I like very much, and would like to try to practice. 

This one has been sitting in the archives for a few months, and was taken with my then every-day-carry camera, a Fujifilm X30 that I sold a little while ago. I had decided to try carrying my Panasonic Lumix DMC GX7 all the time, which is a bit bigger – particularly with the 14-140mm zoom lens that I usually use – and while that’s working out well, I do notice the extra weight and bulk when it’s hanging from my shoulder in my already-heavy bag! So I have been thinking about another, smaller, lighter option, of course.

W.A.C.K. Car Show: the classic cruiser

DSCF0160-001

I found this post languishing in my drafts folder, quietly awaiting posting. This photos was taken in March this year at the WACK Car Show in Horsham, when I took my new secondhand Fujifilm X30 compact camera for a test run. My first strong feeling about the camera was how addictive the electronic viewfinder (EVF) is – looking through it was like seeing everything in hyper-realism!
