Greek cats

A collection of shots taken in Greece in multiple locations (Athens, Sifnos, Milos, Kimolos). All taken with a Fujifilm X-T3.

#PrayForGreece to end the fires that are destroying the forest in the Athens area. Let’s hope those responsible for this despicable crime receive maximum punishment.

Little Venice

In spite of the cloudy weather – the quintessentially Autumn climate someone could argue! – and a little bit of a cold (yep! I’m not in great shape, to be honest with you!), I ventured out with my FUJIFILM X-T3 camera and the Fujinon XC 50-230mm. Once again, I can honestly say this is a massively underrated lens as results speak for themselves.

Foggy morning in Porto – view from Dom Luis I Bridge

My closest friends know that every year – typically at the end of October – I select 12 photographs I shot during the previous twelve months and stick them in a table calendar as a little Christmas gift. As part of the selection process, at the beginning of October I start reviewing the pictures I published on social media with the intention of narrowing down the best (or most meaningful) 15-20 shots before making the final call on which ones make the final cut. As you may have noticed, I have taken a few photographs since upgrading to the Fujifilm x-series cameras and therefore I have a lot of unprocessed pictures on my memory card that have not even been exported to my laptop.

The picture below is one of those. I shot it in Porto on Christmas Eve 2019. It was a foggy morning and I decided to go for a walk whilst waiting for my sister to get ready for breakfast. I actually took two pictures that morning as I was approaching the iconic Dom Luis I Bridge. On paper it had all the right ingredients to be an epic picture: the fog was rising and breaking through the bridge; a tram and a woman were also approaching, as well as a seagull was flying over the bridge. And guess what? I published that picture both here and on social media thinking that was a bloody good picture.

A couple of minutes later I decided to start crossing the bridge and take another photograph. I stopped. I pressed the shutter and then moved on. End of story.

As a matter of fact I actually forgot taking that picture at all until earlier this evening when I was browsing my memory card looking for any decent shot I may have taken and left behind. The original photograph was taken in colour with my old Fujifilm X-T20 (I have only recently upgraded to the X-T3) and subsequently edited in Lightroom using one of my own custom-made black and white presets.

Needless to say this one will feature my 2021 table calendar…
