All right, all right, it’s not a supercar and it’s not mine, I was just helping a friend collect it from the docks in Ramsey. But it is a real Lambo, and since it was a bright sunny day I decided to bring along the X-T3 and shoot a few snaps in Classic Chrome and Velvia, two colour profiles based on film which would have been popular when this little crawler rolled off the production line in Bologna.
The Manx coastline is dotted with many interesting wrecks, including the Steam Trawler Pasages. Originally built in 1917 for the Canadian Navy in Toronto, she made her way to the UK in the 1920s and was converted to a fishing trawler. In 1931 she ran aground in foul weather near Jurby, where she’s been quietly rusting ever since.
In the never-ending quest to try something new, I’m revisiting one of the brands which started me out in digital photography at the turn of the millennium: Fujifilm. This post contains a few thoughts and impressions of Fuji’s X-T3 mirrorless camera, written from the point of view of a long-term Nikon full-frame and Olympus Micro Four Thirds shooter.
