Featured for July

July 09, 2013  •  Leave a Comment

I seem to be getting later and later at changing my "featured image" each month. It's already almost half way through July!

This image was made at the De Young museum in San Francisco, and was one of the first pictures I took with my new little FujiFilm X20 camera, This little thing is (just about) pocketable, has a large sensor and as you can see, pretty decent low light ability. I like that it is not compromised by a misplaced desire to shoot video, like so many are these days - this is a still photographers' camera. The thing I like most about it, however, is that it has a real optical viewfinder (rather than the electronic type, or - more commonly these days - none at all). There's just something that feels right holding a camera up to your eye, not to mention the added stability it gives.

I like this image anyway, but the figure at the window gives it the extra spark that makes it a keeper. I think this is one for my "Ghosts" series. What do you think?
