Returning to work… after six months in darkness

Well, hello there! Now, do I start off with an apology for my absence, or do we just accept that sometimes life throws you an especially slippery banana?! This post has little to do with photography, but everything to do with me, depression, mental health, and the events that transpired this year.

First impressions of the FujiFilm GFX50s

FUJIFILM GFX50s

The resolution of this 51.4 million pixel sensor is stunning. Matched with the world class FUJINON lens line-up, the amount of detail resolved should impress any 35mm user.

I can’t scroll for more than a minute without seeing something that makes me want to spew molten crazy lava and smash whatever device I’m currently hold against the nearest wall. The toxicity of the ‘feed’ is actually infective. It’s like that ‘hate slime’ from Ghostbusters II. I feel angry when I am with you and that just isn’t right. It isn’t healthy for sure. For my own sake, I am moving on… Adieu.
