Houses & Colors - pictures
I took these pictures on the Tory Row side of my neighborhood: Not necessarily on Tory Row, but around that area, on my way there, or back. In any case, my attention was with the colors of these houses. I tried to capture their mostly soft, subtle colors using FUJIFILM Classic Chrome film simulation. A thought I had at the back of my mind was related to Kodachrome: I was not trying to change the camera settings, but mostly looking for color juxtapositions that would take me closer to that style. But I cannot say that I pursued that with determination: this may be a task for the future.

A technical goal I had in mind was to develop a better feel for different focal lengths. For that purpose, I used two prime lenses: 23 and 35 mm. I also had an 18-35 mm lens with me to make comparisons and to be ready for a street scene that might require some zooming. I used two cameras with interchangeable lenses: X-T2 & X-T10. During one of the walks, I took a vintage lens, Tamron 90 mm, with manual focusing; but with that lens, I didn’t capture anything worth sharing. I don’t believe the issue was manual focusing, but the focal length of the lens didn’t match anything of interest.

You can see these pictures in the following albums - FLICKR album also contains my comments on individual pictures:
