Farm diversification into dereliction

Of all the things a farm could diversify into, dereliction is not recommended, especially when leaving machinery and equipment in the buildings.

As always these are buildings that I have driven past many times and for once I stopped and had a look around. Not truly a lot to see apart from the biggest of the barns/buildings that contained a production line and there was paperwork strewn all over the place dating from the 80's and 90's.

It was a good test for the x-pro as I was focusing on dark objects in the dark, not a good combination for focusing. Although it has been said that X-Pro 1 can struggle with focus, even on this occasion I still consider it an excellent performer. This was also the first time I used the 27mm f2.8 lens that I got at the same time as the camera, again its alright; a little soft but definitely usable.

It's me


The trusty old Golf waiting for me.

I lost my head and found it

So for my birthday Laura had a cake made for me which included a mini version of me made out of icing. I found the head quite amusing, for one I don't have curly hair!!! but I liked the beard.

I decided to carry the head around with me for a day and photograph it in different places. Im always carrying the X-Pro 1 around much like I did the Fuji X20 before it, so what's a small comedy head taking up extra space in my pocket!?

Look out

When was the last time anyone used one of these???

All images taken on the Fujifilm XF 27mm F2.8 lens.

Stay tuned.
