There is a great little art exhibit currently running at the Japanese Friendship Garden in San Diego's Balboa Park. 50 different artists, working in all sorts of different media, were invited to each produce an artwork of a fish, which would be displayed on a 2' x 2' piece of black matte tile. The tiles are arranged in a grid pattern on the floor of the exhibition pavilion. It's very different, and some of the interpretations are quite creative. Some were so creative that a photograph just could not convey what it was. I only took a few shots of a few of pieces, but the whole thing was great. If you are in San Diego between now and July 15 this is worth stopping in to see.

Dads 95th 2018 087 Reduced.jpg
Photo of my father and his pastor taken during his 95th birthday celebration. Dad is a WWII purple heart recipient who was seriously wounded by a machine gun ambush in Germany 11 days before the end of the war with Germany. This left him with a lifetime disability and shrapnel throughout his body with some metal particles still being surgically removed as late as six years ago. He gets up every day at 5:00am or sometime earlier and three times per week heads to the church owned gardens where he sponsors and mentors students who participate in a vegetable growing program for their community food banks. Through this program he tutors the young students and works with them in the garden to teach them how to grow their own food. This is a skill that seems to be almost lost to city kids in this day of fast food enterprises. His never ending jokes are as old as he is and we have heard them many times however that’s better then the grumpy attitudes we see from some of his generation who have had less life experiences then he has but seem to complain more. His mind is spooky sharp and despite my best efforts to forget them, he remembers every stupid thing I ever did. One of his jokes which is based on truth is that he and the Christ child have something in common. They were both born in barns. He says that the difference is that Christ got out of the barn after a few days while he (and his 11 siblings) lived in it until he went off to the army during the war. It’s true, a thin wood wall divided the family from the animals who occupied the same structure and the house/barn did not have running water…
Fascinated by these traditional lime-stone huts with their domed roofs in Apulia's Itria Valley. They still serve as residential dwellings or storehouses in the fields, are built without mortar. Traditionally, they could be dismantled immediately when a tax assessment was due, so property taxes could be avoided in the old centuries.
Taken with XT-1 and 60mm /f 2,8, 90mm/f2 and 23/ f 9

A rare chance to use my Rokkor 58 f1.2 with my X-T2 - much easier to focus when the wife is asleep and the cat is chilling !
Shot wide open at f1.2…
I am not an experienced b&W street photograph, but I am trying to get some experience, these shots were taken yesterday with my new X-T20 + 23mm f2
Taken as Raf so I can edit just in case
What do you say?
In Manchester yesterday to try out a few film cameras. No, it isn't, this is the X-T20 with 27mm.

And no.......I didn't. In fact ended up playing with a Leica Q. Result? Grew even more fond of my Fuji. :)
I was rather bored taking out my 90mm f2 on T10 (Pro2 broke down recently haha)

I have thoroughly enjoyed using 10-24mm f4

All I got was this barn, some great pizza and 10 minutes of dime-sized hail bouncing off my car.

Queen Louise's Bridge crosses The Lakes in downtown Copenhagen.
It's a great place for people-watching as folks come and go on foot and bicycle.
They gather, play loud music, strut their stuff and generally have a glorious time.
I arrived early in the evening and stayed late into the night.
Here's an image of a guy occupying a bench and carrying on a lively phone conversation.

This is just a candid shot of my youngest son right before he left for his summer job at Yellowstone NP in Wyoming. I'm starting to work with RawTherapee, and this is my first processed image using that software, so this is really just a sandbox photo. There's more to learn, of course, but I can already see that this is a powerful program.

On a pass at around 12,000 feet in Ladakh, during a solo trek. Ladakh, one of my favorite places on Earth, is a Himalayan region in India on the border with Tibet. Had been there ten years ago, and wow, so much has changed! Went on a four day trek to escape the crowds, and was well worth it. This was early in the season (first half of June). During the peak season (July/August), even the treks get crowded. Over the four days, I only saw about ten other visitors, and was usually the only guest at the village homestays. If you go trekking, make sure that you are well acclimated to the altitude before heading out. Everything is over 10,000 feet. Being a high desert, bringing enough water is essential, along with the ability to filter the occasional stream water (generally drank about a liter an hour). Used a GPS App on my phone, which made route finding much easier.
They are building a year-round access tunnel through the mountains, so if you have thought about going there, I suggest going sooner than later. An amazing place…

This is my favorite Father's Day photo. It's an old one but it fits the theme well.
Taken with X-H1 with 16-55 f2.8 + Godox TT685F
Edit with Alien Skin Exposure X3
I think I now prefer Alien Skin Exposure to ON1 Photo RAW to edit X-H1 photos. Alien Skin X3 seems to support compressed RAW X-H1 files whereas ON1 Photo RAW does not (upgrade 2018.5 in June may fix this).
