My first camera was the Pentax z-20, an old-school analog camera. Me and a friend even developed our own films and worked in the darkroom to create the photos. This process, along with my father's fascination for cameras would influence my preferences later, both in what camera to use and what photos I wanted to create. I still got the Pentax lying around somewhere, along with a Canon AF-1 SLR, but the trend of going back to using film just didn't fit my workflow.
From the early 2000s, I used several different cameras, ranging from Nikon D70 & D90, to Panasonic G7 & GH5, and even a Sony A7II for a brief time, until I fell utterly in love with Fuji after borrowing an X-T2.
My first Fuji was an X-T30, but it was an old X100S that really opened my eyes to the retro styling & the Fuji colors. I bought it second hand and it was in pretty rough shape. The charger was kept together using electrical tape, but after using it on a trip to Malaga, Spain I went all in and bought an X100F, and a bit later the X-T3. The X-T30 was sold, and I bought an X-E3, then an X-Pro 2, but sold both after a while to focus on the X100F and the X-T3.
Finally, I got a good offer on an X100V, so I sold the X100F. Earlier this year I sold the X-T3 and upgraded to an X-T5, and boy, o'boy -- the X-T5 with the XF 33 f/1.4mm has re-ignited my fire for photography once more.
Some shots from our trip to Malaga, captured with the X100s:

Even in low light the old X100S sensor produced great photos.
My current goal is to organize my photos into specific projects based on topic, location, theme, etc, which in turn will end up as physical photobooks and maybe youtube videos. This site will in turn reflect those projects.
I do all this mostly for my own amusement, but if you like it or have ideas send me a few words at firstname.lastname@example.org.
