X-Pro1 – The Sunkissed Streets of Portugal

Scroll down to content

Here’s some more of the places I’ve seen on my travels recently.

X-Pro1 & XF35 + XF60

Clicking on the images will take you to the Flickr versions, where the images can be seen full size, with EXIF info.

Hopefully this image (& title)¬†speaks for itself…

A Different World

I always try to look out for reflections, shadows, angles – tiny little things that can show my environment in a way that perhaps others miss

Tea for One

A bit of reportage, a lovely tea laid out for someone!

Sunset Strollers

I’m a bit of sucker for shadows (& washing lines!) no matter what camera you have (or even your phone) you can shoot into the light in a busy environment and get a silhouette, which although hardly an original concept, is one that (IMO) doesn’t get old either!

Faceless in the Crowd

Today’s cover shot! This should give you a bit of context from the preceding shot! So many people, all strangers to one another, yet all together, on this street, at this time, on this day.

Not There

Not in There

Subject isolation is another technique I’m fond of when the shot warrants it..

A Closer Look

Take a Closer Look

Repeating shapes and a reflection!

Slow Down

The title should speak for this one really… The X-Pro1 has a AF (auto focus) system that some users say is so bad that it’s impossible to capture a moving object, they also say the MF (manual focus) capability is terrible and that the built in aids to assist with MF are worthless.. I shot this in MF at F2! It’s called a focus trap! This is where you anticipate where the subject will be and set the focus to that point ahead of time. How did I know? Years of motorcycle riding gave me a reasonable idea where the rider would select the apex of the bend to be!

A Sinister Tree

This is actually a colour shot (and have I mentioned my love of shadows?)



Images hide in every day objects, if you take anything away from your visit to my blog, please let it be that… (now get off the internet and go get your camera)

Having pulled pork professionally removed from the beard… ;D

A lot of time and effort goes into this site.. If you like what you see, and/or if I’ve helped you then perhaps you’d consider helping me?

One way you could help me is if you want to buy ABSOLUTELY ANYTHING from Amazon, (that’s anything; cameras, books, shoe polish, whatever) if you do so using the links below, then I will receive a small percentage of your expenditure, and you will pay NO MORE than you would have paid anyway.

Amazon USA Any Product

Amazon UK Any Product

This will also work if you USE THOSE LINKS to click through to your own country.

To do this, click a link above, scroll to the bottom of the page, then select your country from the drop down menu, as shown below

Another way you could help, especially if you don’t like Amazon, but do like me, is by making a donation

The donate button is in the top right hand corner or can be found on the link below

Thanks Very Much!
