Whenever I see a local camera shop (or bike or guitar shop) I feel reassured about the state of the world. As a kid, I’d drive store owners nuts. I’m sure they knew I wasn’t going to buy anything but I’d play guitars, look at cameras and ask all sorts of questions. It was nice to see a few shops out in San Francisco this weekend. They have some really cool guitar and bike shops too.
Photographer’s Note – As my adventures with the Fuji X system continues, I have found that I’m lacking a wide angle lens. Fuji doesn’t make one yet. So I rented the 12mm Carl Zeiss lens for this trip. Wow, what a cool lens. Pretty darn sharp and really well built. This image was shot, hand held at 1/30 of a second. Tripods…we don’t need no stinking tripods.
