Hong Kong 2014

I am travelling to Hong Kong once a year. This time I only took the Ricoh GR and a Fuji X-100s with me. "Getting close" is what I really like in a crowded city like Hong Kong. By the way, I can barely distinguish images taken with the Ricoh and the one captured with the Fuji. More and more I think, all these discussions on the internet about gear is useless in real life. Free yourself, enjoy shooting and don´t hunt for more lenses and bodies. Make good use of what you already have.

The narrow depth of field creates creamy bokeh. Images are a little less contrasty but easy to fix in post. Balance of colors are neutral. Manual focusing is fun with the waffle-pattern rubber. This vintage lens is just a joy to use.
