Boy and center window are painted on this wall. I drive by here all the time but today the shadows below the window frames were mirrored.

Really enjoying the images from the Fuji x100. It’s such a capable little camera and its images are rich and full of character.

The 23mm lens is just the right length for almost everything I want to do with a camera, hence all the work with my X Pro 1 and its 24mm manual focus lens.

This shot was from a walk through the downtown Oakland Post Office this evening just as the sun was setting. The light was fading and the fluorescents were just starting to take effect in these post office box alcoves – there are seven or eight of them along the length of the interior of the building.

I really was hoping to come upon someone standing at one of these gorgeous glass-topped tables sorting through their mail or filling out a form, but it was close to closing time and there was no one around.

A photographer whose otherwise amazing girlfriend is averse to having her picture taken is a cruel twist of fate. I won’t give up trying, however.

Nonetheless, I have to find creative ways to include her in my photos as we explore and travel together. She likes this one, thankfully.
