In the groove

Photographing is an exercise in design. One has to frame, recompose, often time re-shoot the scene and then begins the post processing part, its a design issue, the more I think about it, the more I come to that conclusion. Its inescapable. Yours truly

Copa del Rey Penya Barecelonista Doral

I belong to a futbol Penya that supports the FC Barcelona Futbol Club here in Miami. A bunch of fans get together at a local bar in Coral Gables and basically get rowdy. Of course, the favorite beer of the house is Estrella Damm and after three, four, five, or six here’s the result. Yup, Barca lost yet again. No Triplete, No Doblete, just “La Liga”.

I must say its got me smitten all the way.  Relatedly, I have some thoughts of ownership between the Fuji XT2 and the X100F (yeah I know I’m late to party but who cares).

The truth of the matter is that they are quite capable of many things, let me explain further. Beginning My journey with the Micro 4/3 started with the classic Panasonic G1 the camera that introduced this form factor to the world. Prior to Micro Four Thirds, it was and it still exists Four Thirds. Which as the name implies with the former, they’re a smaller form factor cameras with similar sensors. The G1 was incredible camera with lots of qualities which I quite enjoyed and in the end it had its purpose but my photography drifted into a faster type of style which demanded a smaller size. Before going any further, let’s get this out right from the beginning without getting into little details and all out photo geekery. With the exception …
