Landscape Photography with the Fujifilm X-T2

No, the business we are starting does not involve landscape photography. That would, in all probability, be a terrible area of photography to try to make money. I’m drawn to landscapes though. When the lighting is right and the sky or vista before me looks beautiful, I’m instinctively drawn to pulling out the camera to capture the moment. Some people need to take photos of animals, or cars, or sports. I’m drawn by landscape. These are some photos I’ve taken with the Fujifilm X-T2 over the past half year as I learn the ins and outs of the camera.

Enjoying the Present with Added Risk

I really like beer. Like, I really like beer. From light, crisp pilsners to dark, heavy stouts, I love the symphony of flavours, smells, and sensations. The problem is… it contains alcohol. Alcohol isn’t the greatest thing for your body above certain dosages. From everything I’ve read on the current knowledge of safe drinking levels, it seems like under 2 cans of beer per day is what is considered safe for the average person, but who knows. On most days, I indulge in a can of beer or two. Is this safe? I’m not sure. And thus the dilemma: do I abstain completely, knowing that abstinence will cause no risk from alcohol, but perhaps decrease enjoyment in life, or do drink my beer or two a day, enjoying myself with the added risk of potential health issues arising way down the line? Do I value enjoyment in the present with added risk or do I decrease enjoyment but take on no risk? My feelings have sided with the former, but I’m always chewing it over.

Changes

I’ve deleted my mailing list, so those of you who were getting emails will no longer be getting them.

I’ve deleted commenting, so if you want to get in touch with me, find me on Twitter.

I’ve deleted ads, so there will be no annoying ads telling you to buy Viagra or take out lines of credit.

I’ve deleted a bunch of other backend things and have simplified as much as possible.

All the things I’ve deleted have felt like a burden, and it made me lose interest in writing.

Now, with all those burdens gone, I can just write again.

About anything I damn well want.
