52 Project (Week 30) - Whatever

So when I did my 365 Project the kids started getting sick of constantly being the subject of my photography.  Well, just a little over half way in on the 52 Project and I am starting to get a little attitude from them.

52 Project (Week 29) - Love and The Pittsburgh Vintage Grand Prix

This past weekend was the annual Pittsburgh Vintage Grand Prix (PVGP), so Jonah and I went to watch the cars and take some pictures.  The first 2 images are from my Fuji X-E2, and the top image will be my weekly selection.  The images following of the cars racing are from my Canon 5d MkII, which out performs the Fuji when is comes to sports photography.  My favorite image from the day is the last image, so you should make sure and scroll to the bottom.

As we walked to the races I noticed that some folks in Pittsburgh have begun expressing their love for one another by placing locks on the bridge. As I explained this ritual to Jonah, he asked "Can't they just get married?"  Seems like a reasonable question.

52 Project (Week 28) - Echinacea

Last week I was out in the backyard enjoying the weather, the kids playing, and a beer.  I also figured it was a good opportunity to play around with the X-E2 macro function.  The lens that was attached was the Fuji 35mm f/1.4, which seemed to work just fine in macro mode. The one thing I did quickly learn was that I felt more comfortable in manual focus when shooting in macro mode.  Overall, the Fuji X-E2 performed well for macro shots, and if I were in a pinch or traveling I would feel confident that I could get the shot I wanted.  However, if I was headed out to shoot specifically macro images I will defer to my Canon gear with an actual macro lens for now.  Maybe someday I will have a Fuji macro lens and I will feel differently.

52 Project (Week 27) - Moraine State Park Marsh

Last week the family went for a bike ride in Moraine State Park and along the way I made a couple stops to take some photographs.  This is a marsh area along the path that happens to be my favorite image from our ride.

52 Project (Week 26) - Win-Win

On Sunday we dropped Jonah off at Sheldon Calvary Camp for his first year of sleep away camp.  He was super excited as you can see by the image below.  So it was a "Win" in his mind, and when we arrived home I snapped the photo of Harper below.  Likewise, a few days without her brother was a "Win" for her too.
