Journal History

    Well I just gave my Fuji XT1 the ultimate field test I can imagine. 10 Days of Maui adventure. No electricity (good thing I brought 4 fully charged batteries), sandy beaches, days of straight rain in the jungle, climbs in caves, high humidity/moisture, and 2200+ shutter fires. Overall this camera never once let me down, instead it just kept amazing me. I am absolutely in love with my 35mm f1.2 fujinon Prime Lens. So sharp wide open and about a 56mm equivalent focal length to 35mm film. Also my super wide 12mm 2.0 manual focus lens is so perfect for capturing everything, even in considerable low light. And of course my beast weather proof 18-135 3.5/5.6 fujinon was perfect for the rainy days and the sandy beaches in bright light, lightning fast focus too.

    My sister and her lover John live in this huge 2 story old house in the middle of the jungle on the north side of the Island of Maui just outside the town of Hana. It rains a lot in this region of the island since the clouds come from the north. The jungle rain is so amazing and warm. And a somewhat quick jot around the island led us to a lot of sun breaks of intense brightness and heat. 10 days of adventure really changed my perspective on life itself. I'm going to be visiting them at least once a year so expect more pictures from the island someday. Aloha spirit!

My sister Billi is an amazing artist! She paints with all sorts of mediums on quality canvases that John makes himself. I did her a favor of photographically documenting her paintings she had at their place, and I'll soon be documenting some she has sent to me for my apartment I have up. She just made a deviantART account BilliRaiGolden  And I'm about to uplaod the pictures I took of her paintings to her account for her. Please take a look at her works they are amazingly creative with Island spirit and lovely texture in the paint itself which might not be giving justice in my pictures.

I only uploaded about 13 pictures because I'm very picky in what I consider a good photograph but I had about 70 that I liked. Here is a link to an album of the rest so you can see the quality of this camera and the lenses I have for it.
