I am still a youngster even if I just had my 903rd birthday as a time traveling jedi. This time we celebrated in Perth, Australia, a slightly less epic setting than then 902 and 901 birthdays. But the setting is not important, all that matters is spending the day with the love of my life and I had some magic birthday days orchestrated by Charlene. The days also included Charlene and I giving a 2 hour Fujifilm X-series Showcase talk at Camera Electronic in Perth. As usual we shot a lot of silly pictures of each other, and here are a few of mine and a lot of Charlene’s wonderful black and white shots of this time traveling hipster on his birthday.

    I’m digging that beat up lens hood that Charlene has…reminds me of the early 90s when I was shooting Nikon manual primes with beat up metal lens hoods. Oh, and HAPPY BIRTHDAY too 😉

      Thanks Craig, the X-pro1 that the lens was attached to is in about the same shape 🙂
