The Journey to Nine Mile Jamaica

i-XWG3pkQ-XL
Being the HUGE Bob Marley fan I am, visiting the House of Marley in Nine Mile Jamaica was an item I had on my bucket list for a very long time! (Glad that’s one item crossed off) The drive to the compound took about two hours from where we were located. The roads were rough and consisted of narrow lanes that ran along the mountains of Jamaica. I loved every minute of it! What’s not to love when you’re in a bus filled other fans just as excited as you are, and all singing to the tunes of Bob Marley?!? Good times, good times… and now for the photos:

Barbados

Adventure time on the island of Barbados! I must say that Barbados has some of the bluest waters I have ever seen in my life. Also here’s a tip if you ever plan to visit, it’s forbidden to wear any type of camouflage clothing on the island.





























The Fuji x100T

Since the announcement of the Fuji x100T I’ve been fighting the urge to upgrade my original Fuji x100 that I’ve owned for several years. My Fuji x100 was my daily street fighter and has traveled with me all over the world and had proven itself over and over. Last month I finally gave in and decided to pick up the Fuji x100T to see if it would really change anything for me and surprisingly yes it did! The Fuji x100T totally has changed my work flow of how I do things. The ability to wifi .jpg photos over to my phone or tablet alone has been worth the upgrade. Here’s an example of what I mean… I was at a family party and took a good number of photos (about 80), I then transferred the photos instantly to my iPhone and “Air Dropped” them to everyone at the party who had an iPhone. These were all high qualtiy .jpg’s already processed with Fuji’s Classic Chrome in the camera. The key thing here for me was not having the need for a laptop to download the photos, process, then upload for all to see and share. Oh did I mention I did this all within 15minutes while still at the party? Now tell me that is not a game changer? I’ll be heading off to the Caribbean in the near future so I’m really juiced at seeing how the Fuji x100T will differ from the original x100 with my travel photography. For now here are some everyday photos I’ve taken with the Fuji x100T over the last month of owning it, note these are all straight out of the camera using only Fuji’s Classic Chrome in camera .jpg preset.
