The Fujinon XF 50mm f2 R WR lens - Rocks!

Day 1 with the Fujinon XF 50mm f2 R WR lens mounted on the Fujifilm X-Pro2 camera:

The Fuji 50mm lens on the X-Pro2 is the equivalent to a 75mm lens on a full frame 35mm camera - thus it's a short telephoto lens. Now that we have that out of the way let's go for a walk-about in my favorite city "Yokohama"!

Looking good mister!

Hey! Where's your safety helmet?

A pigeon's best friend.

I like the way this lens can isolate a person in a crowd.

Time for a little street entertainment.

One of the great things about Yokohama is that there's always something going on.

 Like a horse race on a specially made temporary race track on the sidewalk of Nihon Odori boulevard.

These are the famous horse riding archers from Kamakura.

There was such a large crowd of people I couldn't get very close. So, I cropped this image to show more of the details of the horse and rider.

The building in the background is the Kanagawa Prefecture Government Building. It's nicknamed "The King".

Moving on it looks like everyone is in good spirits today.

This did not end well for the skateboarder.

More happy people.

Let's go fishing!

I see fishing is popular with the girls too.

There's more to fishing than fishing. It's a chance for a family picnic.

I think I've been spotted. After I told him I was taking a picture of his dog he smiled with a true dog owners pride and thanked me.

The best cheap date there is - a walk along the water front on a nice day.

Rollin' rollin' rollin' keep them doggies rollin'

The afternoon sun is helping to make everything look nice.

Two young women enjoying the day.

Well, well, well! It's a street party in Noge!

A samurai saxophone player is playing "Tequila". Does it get any better than this?

She accompanies him on the drum.

Another drummer.

I see she collects the tips!

The really know how to have fun in Noge.

It wouldn't be a party without a beautiful witch.

Last shot of the day: Time to catch a train and go home.

Coming soon - Day 2 with the Fujinon XF 50mm f2 R WR lens mounted on the Fujifilm X-Pro2 camera!
