BELINDA GROVER PHOTOGRAPHY

STOPS ALONG THE WAY

A NEW TAKE (TWO PHOTOGRAPHS)

22 Comments

I’m thinking of buying a walkaround camera for street photography and landscapes. I want something lightweight and relatively easy to use and borrowed my spouse’s Fuji XT-1 with 23mm lens. We headed towards a commercial street full of small shops and restaurants. Waiting for the light to change I looked up and saw this spectacular example of wall art.
The camera is tempting – it’s lightweight, handles well and the viewfinder is terrific with excellent magnification. And with interesting subjects for the taking a good pairing.

  1. Great art. I wonder who the creator is.

  2. I love my Fuji! (It’s the little sister X-T20.) Sun fun cameras to use because they’re so similar in handling to old film SLRs.

  4. Love the colour version. I use X-T1 and X-T2 cameras now, alongside my full-frame Nikons, and I find the Fujis very good and very portable. 🙂

  5. Mirrorless in your future. I tried the Fuji but after using a big Canon so long it was much too small for me. Ellen is Sony a6500 for walk around, even that looks a bit small. Of course I could wait for her to fall asleep and ‘borrow’ it for a test run.

  6. I always enjoy the art you share, Belinda, it’ll be fun to see what a new camera expresses. This mural is so extensive and elaborate, and surely not easy to do on brick.

  8. There’s something to be said for ease of packing it around. The street art gives the building a textured look.Good in both colour and b/w.

  9. Both processes are equally beautiful! I just found my old Canon powershot and was planning, just as you said, to start carrying around for street and landscape. But I didn’t located my cords to charge it, argh, still looking. And now that I’ve said this, today I’m putting extra effort to look for them! 🙂
