Spring has been long in coming. It has been a long, hard, cold winter with record setting snow fall. Since the “official” spring started one and one-half weeks ago, it has been cold and wet with even a little snow flurry. But finally I see emerging spring bulbs coming up. Maybe Spring is really here! This morning I thought I would give my new travel camera its first try. I purchased my new FUJI X-T1 on the recommendation of two of my mentors/instructors, John Barclay and Tony Sweet. They have both fallen in love with the new FUJI X-series cameras. It will take me a while to get familiar with its strengths and weaknesses. It is sure a lot smaller and lighter than my Canon SLR’s. Hopefully the weather will get a little warmer for more pleasant shooting.
