All the sunset flare.

You can't have it. The Canon LTM 50mm 1.4 and I are taking it all.

Once again, Greaserama was a photographer's dream. I took in the cars and bands using a mix of adapted Olympus PEN F lenses and my favorite flare prone lens, the Canon LTM 50mm f1.4 The latter was used for this OOC image on the Fuji X-T2. Shooting in the dark, manual focus, from the hip on a moving object is just the kind of masochistic photography exercise I enjoy.

The Beast Below

"Moria... You fear to go into those mines. The dwarves delved too greedily and too deep. You know what they awoke in the darkness of Khazad-dum... shadow and flame."

I'm not sure, but the salt miners may have followed the path of the dwarves and dug too deep. Stitch is the thing that dwells below.

Funny story: Someone on our tour wagon was projecting huge Stitch shadows down side passageways and was chastised by Spawn the Younger. The rest of the family was cheerfully oblivious :)

Journey through the Salt Mine

While in Hutchinson, Kansas, we spent most of a day 650 feet down in the Strataca Underground Salt Museum. We took a couple of the extended tours and got to experience the claustrophobic power of pure darkness.

Through the finish line.

Featuring one of Spawn the Younger's Junior teammates. They've spent countless hours training and travelling to cross country and track meets together over the last two seasons since she took up running.

So anyway, I recently realized that I have been MIA on G+ for awhile. It's not intentional. We're nearing the end of the school year for my High School Junior. That alone would be busy enough with work and life in general, but she's also a Varsity distance runner and that's kept us extra busy with meets every week.

I love shooting track and cross country events! It's a different discipline than street photography, but action is never boring and it's a great technical challenge.

This shot is from a recent meet just after a cold front moved in. It was a dank and windy mid-40s when the 3200 started. Distance running generates lots of heat and cold is better for the runners if not the photographers :) Spawn the Younger, Claire, set a school record on her first shot at the 3200. This week she qualified to run this distance and a 4x800 relay at State.

The Fuji X-T2 is a motion tracking beast! I'm still getting the hang of it. The EVF brightness and mismatched color with the LCD are disconcerting. Other than that, focus lock for panning works really well. Start to shot is fast. Low-light auto-focus is snappy. As long as I am not doing portraits, I'm just fine with it at ISO 8000 for sports shooting in evening stadium light.

I picked up a used 18-135mm XF lens from KEH and love how it pairs with this camera and grip. I used to switch to a prime for night shots, but this zoom works well for my style of motion shooting.

As for the this race, the guy in the foreground is committed to run at Notre Dame. He edged out his opponent at the line and they both lapped the guy in front. Will Cole always brings drama to distance runs.

This image was processed with Snapseed on iPad; because it doesn't work my Chromebook Pixel.

The Kansas track and field season is underway and with it comes dramatic sprint finishes. I've been practicing my pannig with the Fuji X-T2. It's a motion tracking beast!
