For years now, I’ve been visiting the Mississippi Delta region of Mississippi and making photos of old stuff, before it’s gone. The times are a changing.
When I saw this, and realized what I was seeing, it shook me to the core.
In September I went out to Zion National Park, Bryce Canyon National Park and of course, the Grand Canyon National Park. I did over 800 photos with my Fuji x100t and was able to thin them down to about 80 and then kind of got stuck there. I didn’t want to post all 80. I wanted to post maybe 10-20. I feel like I need to describe them or say something about each. Lets see how I do with that below.
The Fuji x100t is a fixed lens that is equivalent to 35mm focal length. I stopped with my full on Canon full frame camera with associated lenses and stuff after a trip down to Mississippi with my buddy Lowry. The back pack weighed 26 pounds with all my gear.
I. Am. Not. A. Pack. Mule.
I jumped to the Olympus OMD EM5 and liked what I could do with the camera, but I just never “loved” using it. Several photographers I follow suggested that the Fuji x100 would be their desert island camera. By that they meant if they could only take one camera and lens for the rest of their lives, the x100 would be the one. I gave it a go, and I love using them! Small camera’s that shoot in just about any light with minimal noise and practically no weight! I have enjoyed both the x100s and now the T. I don’t think I’m missing out on photos that I might get if I had more lens choices.
Anyways… here they are. The timelessness of the region always makes me feel inconsequential. If I’m lucky I’ll be here till I’m one hundred. The Grand Canyon is 4 million years old. It will be here long after I’ve gone too…
