# 1007. Desperate Times (documentant le dernier des géants de la vapeur)

L'auteur Mike Peart est une sorte de luminaire dans la préservation des chemins de fer au Royaume-Uni. À une époque où British Railways enrichissait les propriétaires des chantiers de ferraille d'Angleterre, il (et quatre amis) a fondé le Great Western Society pour préserver une partie de l'histoire ferroviaire qui était emportée avec une hâte indécente. Cela aurait été suffisant pour beaucoup, mais même alors, Mike a également pris une bonne photo. ************************************************** ********************** Il s'agit d'une histoire de la photographie ferroviaire au début des années 1960. Nous étions de jeunes passionnés de chemin de fer vivant dans l'ouest de Londres, toujours au lycée, faisant nos examens de niveau «O» et «A». Nous étions diplômés de la f...

The Magic of Modern Beirut

Where we’re at: I’m recapping my travels in 2019, including this retreat research trip to Lebanon in September. There are more details about our upcoming 2020 retreats at the end of this post. I realize for some this is a difficult time to read about travel. However, my blog audience has spoken and they have overwhelmingly requested a break from COV-tent (content about, well, you know…), and a place where they can mentally escape right now. So, I will continue to post from my past travels to inspire those who wish to daydream about the day it is safe to travel again. Wishing all of you love and peace in this time of reflection.  The Middle East has captured my imagination and my attention for quite some time now. So last summer, when my new friend Jess issued me a casual invitation to...

Creating Custom Looks With Your Fujifilm Camera

I just posted my latest video tutorial, Creating Custom Looks With Your Fujifilm Camera. You can watch it on my YouTube channel. Expanding on the topics I covered in my previous lesson, where I outlined How To Use Fujifilm’s Highlight and Shadow Tone Controls, in this tutorial, I show you how to take your creativity and image making fun to the next level by tweaking the film simulations with some of the other creative tools and settings found in your X Series camera. Buried in the Image Quality Menu and the Q MENU by default, you’ll find a set of useful, but little understood exposure controls. These consist of COLOR, SHARPNESS, SHADOW TONE, AND HIGHLIGHT TONE. On the X-Pro3, X-T4 and X100V, you now have a CLARITY control. These controls are overlooked by many photographers, me inclu...

Celebrating 10 Years of Blogging!

Wow! I’ve been running this blog for 10 years. That makes this the longest job I’ve ever had! I certainly had no idea when sitting in a hostel in Australia, searching for what to call it, that it would take me on such an incredible journey.Let’s rewind to that point, and see how I got to where I am today.I quit my job in 2009 to set off on a year-long trip around Australia. I had literally no idea what direction my life would take after that. I knew I didn’t really like working in an office, playing corporate politics and working for someone else.However, I also had no idea what the alternatives were, or what I really wanted to be doing. With a degree in computer science and a career as a software developer, it was hard to figure out exactly what path to take that would satisfy my creat...
