Kubota Garden with the Zeiss Touit 50mm on a Fuji X-T3 (Macro Photography)

The Touit 50mm is all but a forgotten lens when it comes to the Fuji X line, but it’s a fantastic macro lens. See for yourself! It’s also a great portrait lens too. All of these photos were shot with available light which isn’t always ideal for macro photography, but worked out quite well for ...

Weyerhaeuser Bonsai Museum and Rhododendron with the Fuji 16mm f/2.8 brief review.

Spring is happening, so it was a great time to get out and enjoy the sights. This was my first outing with the Fuji 16mm f/2.8 and while it’s a nice little lens, it’s not like the f/1.4 version in terms of it’s close focusing ability. According to the specs on B&H the minimum focus ...

Fuji 8-16mm f/2.8 First Outing

I’ll be writing up a review of this lens in the future, but for now, here’s my initial outing with the lens. We headed to the Tacoma Art Museum and then Dorky’s (a video game arcade) today. Images were processed using Lightroom for iPad. The videos are straight out of the camera (Eterna mode) with ...

Protzel’s Delicatessen – St. Louis

After a morning and afternoon of walking around St. Louis, it was time for my final tourist destination – a Kosher Deli. Beef tongue sandwich with deli mustard on rye? Yes, please! I’ll also have a pickled tomato with a celery flavored soda. Plus, some chopped liver and bagel chips to go. I almost forgot, ...

St. Louis Zoo

Seriously, who goes to an outdoor zoo on a freezing cold day? Nobody! There were probably less than forty people throughout the entire zoo that day. Why did I even go? It was just down the street from the museum, it had free admission, and people had raved about online. As far as zoos go, ...

St. Louis Art Museum

It was now Tuesday. One more day to play before attending classes and training. However, today was going to be colder than the day before. What to do as a tourist on a very cold day? The Art Museum! It’s easily the best museum that I’ve ever walked through. Amazingly, it’s free! They had a ...

Missouri Botanical Garden – St. Louis

Where else do you go on a cold winter day in St. Louis? An outdoor botanical garden of course! Today alone, my Fuji X-T3 and 23mm f/2 had already been rained on, now time for some cold weather. It was COLD outside – cold with a capital BRRRRR! Luckily, the rest of the time, I ...

Cathedral Basilica of St. Louis

This is a must see in St. Louis – just amazing! The light inside is quite dim, so I had to shoot with a slow shutter speed and high ISO. I really wish the Fuji X-T3 had in body image stabilization. Ideally, this would have been a great place for a tripod and to shoot ...

Gateway Arch Park – St Louis, MO

Upon leaving the Old Cathedral, you’re right near the Arch. Around the park, there’s a staircase that leads down to the waterfront. The shore/beach is unlike any other beach I’ve seen – no dirt or sand, but cobblestone. Before heading into and up the Arch, I took a stroll through the park. Too bad it ...

Old Courthouse – St Louis, MO

This past week, I was in St. Louis doing for some additional job training. I flew in a few days early though so I could have fun being a tourist. It was cold, but still it was a nice town to visit. Monday and Tuesday were my only days to explore, so I decided to ...
