A visit to the Oregon Coast

Flew into PDX and was instantly greeted by 90+ degree heat and loved every minute of it. Hopped onto the "MAX" for a 1.5 hour ride out to Hillsboro to catch another ride out to the Coast which ended up being a 2 hour drive. Not bad considering I've never done it before so it was great kicking back and enjoying the ride. I have to say riding the "MAX" is soooooo much more enjoyable than having to ride BART!

Visiting the Oregon Coast was definitely an awesome experience. I can see myself coming back to spend more time taking landscape photos and visiting every Nike Outlet in town!


The Journey to Nine Mile Jamaica

i-XWG3pkQ-XLBeing the HUGE Bob Marley fan I am, visiting the House of Marley in Nine Mile Jamaica was an item I had on my bucket list for a very long time! (Glad that's one item crossed off) The drive to the compound took about two hours from where we were located. The roads were rough and consisted of narrow lanes that ran along the mountains of Jamaica. I loved every minute of it! What's not to love when you're in a bus filled other fans just as excited as you are, and all singing to the tunes of Bob Marley?!? Good times, good times... and now for the photos: i-bhx9nvQ-XL

Fuji X-T10 x Canon FD 28mm mashup

More fun with vintage manual focus lenses! The Canon 28mm f/2.8 FD lens is another favorite of mine that stays on my X-T10 80% of the time. I was able to pick one up from eBay dirt cheap several years ago when I was looking for a wide angle lens for my Canon AE-1 film camera. Since the Fuji has a 1.5 crop factor the lens basically becomes a 42mm lens.

Here are some photos I recently took with this setup.
