I was over at my friend Joy Brown’s studio working on clay pieces or her next big firing this summer (I was a potter in another life, I have an MFA in ceramics). On the way home I noticed that her swamp looked interesting so I stopped the truck in the middle of the driveway and walked up and down looking for interesting angles to shoot this swamp. I took lots of shots and almost all of them were interesting but none had everything I was seeing. This one had some of the texture of the grass mounds and the nice contrast of mounds out in the pond.
When I hold still and set up the camera correctly, the Fuji X70 is recording details amazingly well.
