Gear: Fuji x100

This new camera is a recent purchase - a retro styled digital camera with some pretty impressive noise handling and great 35mm equivalent f/2 lens (see my other posts here and here with pics). For any x100 fans - the lens hood isn't the official one made by Fuji but one that I found for less than half the price online (read China). I'm going to be using this camera pretty much solely a diary camera as it's a lot easier to carry around than my 5DII, so expect to see more pics posted up here.

It's so pretty that that I thought I'd take one of those classic arty/wanky 'here's-my-camera-happened-to-be-perched-on-moleskins-and-passport' shot that you seem to see everywhere these days - implying some form of jet-setting lifestyle that will occur if you buy this camera. Speaking of which I am off abroad again tomorrow, this time Morocco. How apt.

Portrait: Mountain gorilla tracker, Rwanda

This guy was one of number of gorilla trackers I met, I photographed him just as we were starting our descent and the morning rains had started, bringing with them the mist. About two or three of these guys will stay with the gorilla groups all day, waiting patiently at a distance until they bed down for the night. That way the following day when the next team come up the mountain they have a good idea where the groups will be, allowing them to send legions of tourists up the mountain in the most efficient manner.
