An afternoon trip to the beautiful little town of Port Hope on the shore of Lake Ontario. Since it was November the scenery didn’t lend itself to beautiful colours or vegetation. It was a dreary cold ‘blah’ day. So I focused on B&W images and the downtown scenery. Due to C-19 and being the off season the downtown was very quiet with not many businesses open. In the summer Port Hope can be a beautiful place to spend an afternoon but on this November day nothing was going on downtown.
For this outing I wanted to take my time so I brought my Fuji X-Pro1 and vintage manual focus Canon 24mm F2.8 FD lens. On the Fuji gear this lens has the full frame focal length equivalent of 35mm. I find that to be an excellent ‘out for a walk’ focal length. I have always been impressed with the sharpness this old prime lens produces. It’s simple and fun to use while easily nailing focus with the focus peaking feature of the cameras.
