My wife Rebecca and I went to Provence, France in May to celebrate our first wedding anniversary. We took an overnight ferry, the Oscar Wilde, from Rosslare, Ireland to Cherbourg, France. The ferry crossing was followed by a great road trip through the whole country to get down to Provence in south of France. We had a wonderful time.
Between the two of us we had brought eight cameras, only two of them being digital. I brought my Fuji X-Pro1, Leica MP and Hasselblad. While my Hasselblad is my favorite camera of all times (see my images shot with it here), I also enjoyed shooting my Leica MP and Rebecca’s Contax 645. The camera I ended up using most was the little Fuji X-Pro1.
I had the X-Pro1 with me everywhere and every day to capture moments and stories to remember for our travel blog. I really loved it. It’s so discreet, unobtrusive and the image quality and color rendition are simply stunning. I made one LR4 preset for color and one for black and white when I first got the X-Pro1. I am still using these two presets on every single image.
All images below were taken with the Fuji X-Pro1 and the Fujinon 35mm 1.4 lens:
