I called it “the strange case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde” because it is simultaneously wonderful and disappointing—wonderful image quality, disappointing performance. I don’t want to rehash what I already stated in the review, so I’ll approach this a different way.

For a long time I shot 35mm film. I had a Canon AE-1 camera and a 50mm f/1.8 lens, and that’s it—one camera and one lens. After awhile, though, I began to collect gear. I acquired more cameras and more lenses. One lens was a Canon…

Had to make an impromptu trip to Los Angles, California to assist a friend of mine back for medical treatment at the VA Hospital in Long Beach. A long trip on New Years Day. Decided to hang there for a few days before returning home. Took a few pictures visiting Venice Beach and Manhattan Beach.

Manhattan Beach

Only had my travel gear with me, Fuji X Pro2 and a XF 50mm f2 for these shots of Surfers.
