These photos might not look particularly special to you but they are to me. The reason for this is that these are the last photos of the New Forest I’ll be taking with my trusty FujiFilm XT1.
Oh the irony that I only discover and use panoramic mode the last time I take it into the forest…
My new Nikon D4S arrives when I return, it’s lenses are already here and so post-Iceland I’ll be selling the Fuji.
This will either sound horrifically over-emotional or totally understandable depending on how you roll camera-wise – but well, we’ve been through a lot together. The emotions of slums in Africa, the heat of Rhodes, the balmy summer afternoon bordering the Swiss mountains, happy family moments, mad festival times, my first paid photography work, parties, events and quite times in the forest. We have a history, it’s hard to explain. I wish I could keep it with me forever in many ways and yet I know that next weekend when I’m driving to Yorkshire to spend the weekend here (thanks to Canopy & Stars) with Jen, Sarah, Gemma, Emma, Cerys, Elizabeth and Katie it’ll be at the back of my mind and playing with the new Nikon at the forefront.
<insert ALL the emotions here>
