Camera Obscura/World of Illusions/Photographers Wet Dream

We have been putting off going to Camera Obscura & World of Illusions in Edinburgh for years but we’re glad we finally did; the place is like photography porn (and it’s fun for the kid).

After carrying Big Boy around Edinburgh yesterday I fancied travelling light and the old X-Pro 1 with the little 18mm f/2 fit the bill perfectly. All these images will need a click to see the full image.

Things I saw yesterday

Not much to report here. Had a fairly lazy day. We chilled in the morning. Went for a Parma Violet latte and Hot Chocolate at Cafe Rawnchy in Dennistoun. I had the Lavender and White Chocolate cake yum yum yum. Shot some stuff on the X-Pro1 with the VM 35mm f/1.4 and there’s even an iPhone shot in there from when the M mount lens couldn’t get close enough.

A rare ride on the subway and a walk in a different park

We don’t ride the Glasgow Underground much. It doesn’t come by our side of the city but today we were heading to the West End. No special reason: we just wanted to walk round a park we haven’t already walked round ten times this week. Covid lockdown certainly lowers your expectations off a fun day out.

I have also been playing around with shine new colour edits and I’m pretty happy with it.

These were all shot on the go with my X-T2 and the big 16mm f/1.4 (that thing gets a bit heavy after a few hours but the upgrade in image quality compared to the f/2.8 version is definitely worth it.

Why not drop a comment and get some chat going. Any subject, the lens, the edit, the composition, whatever…
