Ever since I got the Fuji x100s, I’ve read blogs of people raving about its high speed flash sync awesomeness. Being able to shoot at F2.0 in bright daylight with the built in ND filter – I had to try it sometime. I had a SB900 flash that I had bought years ago after being inspired by the TFB tour by Numnuts & Strobist but never had the confidence to shoot with it. I wasn’t sure of the light and settings to use. I always thought you’d need lots of gear to make a picture happen. Anyway, here are a few images from that experiment in bright daylight! What do you think of the images so far? Wanting to see what else I was capable of, I took it with…
Before heading to Istanbul, I had watched an episode of No Reservations with Antony Bourdain and had created a list of eating spots combining Tony’s list with some spots I found on Istanbuleats.com. Obviously then, I was excited to taste Turkish food. I expected this smorgasbord of meats, cooked for hours and flavored with spices from the world over. But what I got was tender meat without much flavor. Dont get me wrong the food is decent, but nothing to rave about. One other thing that bothered me was that Istanbul being this cultural hotspot should have more choices in their food. Almost all restaurants had the similar tasting dishes on similar looking menus. I, however, didn’t care for what their menus looked like as I had my mind set on Shawarma…
Yes, it has only one subject and is only 3 months long. Here’s me trying to do a Steve McCurry. I know I ‘ll never be as good as him but there’s no harm trying ya? After watching his take on the latest Pirelli calendar I was inspired so much that I wanted to create my holiday calendar much like his Pirelli project. Do you think I came close? A little maybe?

Cappadocia means the land of the horses and it truly is. The landscape here is unmatched almost poetic even. We spent 3 days in Goreme, one of the 3 cities in Cappadocia. We had a great time here and my fuji x100s did get some battle scars from all the ATVing around here. For now, enjoy these images.
