Taking The Train for Street


One of my new years resolutions (if you could call it that) is to jump on the train more often and head for the city for a bit of street photography. It’s the beginning of March and I’ve been doing just that.

20 minutes to the west takes me to Glasgow and 50 minutes to the east and I’m in Edinburgh (our capital). I had limited time today, so I headed for Glasgow.

The bulk of what I’m shooting today is on the X70 with a little bit on the X-Pro2. I’m zone focusing the X70, but I’m being a bit reckless and not composing using the LCD much, but just pointing the camera where I think it should be pointed. That tends to be straight ahead with the 28mm focal length; no need to point it up unless you’re really close.
