Seen at 16mm | Valerie Jardin

There is a place I visit regularly in Minneapolis, that’s Architectural Antiques. I know the staff there, they’re super friendly and always let me spend time in some dark corners hunting for treasures with my camera. This week I received the new Fujinon 16mm F/1.4 lens which prompted me to take the XT-1 out of the closet (I’ve been shooting at 23mm with the X100S and now the X100T for so long, I never even think of using a different focal length any more!). This is not a lens review, I don’t do those. I find them boring to read, let alone write them! Just a few pics shot with a pretty incredible lens which I am going to take on the streets once in a while now too. It will by no means replace my X100T for street photography. I don’t think the camera that will, is even born yet! This week the Architectural Antiques had some cool old film reels and canisters lying around the store. I had fun shooting them in very low light with the cool new fast prime. Photographers are never bored!…..
