100 Word Fiction
The town was founded around 1902, when gold was first discovered. Virgil Earp was sheriff in 1904, but didn’t last long. He died in 1905 from pneumonia. Some say he might have visited the Hoist House back then but that’s impossible, as the place wasn’t built till twenty years later. Just around the time I was born. Yes, I’m nearing the century mark. We’ve got big plans for my birthday in 5 years. If I make it. I tell everyone who asks that clean living and a drink a day is my secret. That and a cigarette just before bed.
Goldfield Hotel, Goldfield NV
“There was a girl knocking on my hotel room door all night! Finally, I let her out.” ~~ Henny Youngman
Last week it was a Ford. This week, a Dodge. I don’t know why I have this fascination with old cars and trucks but I always happen upon them and happen to take a shot. This is with the Fuji X-T1 shot in b & w jpg without Lightroom interference.
For a color version, shot RAW, please visit Photos By Emilio!
Somewhere in Goldfield NV Fuji X-T1 JPEG with in camera B&W Film Simulation
I tend to shoot everything RAW and then use Lightroom and a few other editing programs because I enjoy processing my photos. Meanwhile, my friend Joe would go on and on about how he shoots mostly JPEG and does very little editing because the Fuji’s are just that good. I mean, it was really getting annoying. Like a broken record! So, Sunday I put it to the test. Went out and shot jpeg (but backed up every shot in RAW) and set the in camera film simulation mode to black and white. And you know what?
Of course you do.
The guy was right.
Now, how annoying is that?
And now I’m perplexed. I don’t want to start a new blog, but I do want to feature Fuji jpeg’s on my site. Maybe once a week. The perplexion is that I have no idea what to call this continuing feature. Fuji Friday does not take into account that all posts will be jpeg only. So if anyone has a suggestion, please feel free. I will give you credit on every post, if you like.
