06 Dec My Fujifilm Journey…
At this point I admit to finding myself in quite a quandary. A quandary that lasted weeks, rather than days, and I am sure many other photographers have found themselves in the same situation.

I felt I was using a camera again, not just taking photographs. In comparison, my Nikon bodies just felt like tools.
