One camera, two lenses and a very nice day!

One camera, two lenses and a very nice day! I packed my bag with the Fujifilm X-Pro2 camera and these two lenses:
(1) Fujinon XF 16mm f2.8 R WR lens
(2) Fujinon XF 60mm f2.4 R Macro lens
Then I headed out the door bound for the Yokohama waterfront.

I'm starting the day with the Fujinon XF 16mm f2.8 R WR lens.

Nice wide angle view of  Zou-no-hana park and Osanbashi pier

The boat basin at Zou-no-hana viewed from the elevated Yamashita Rinko Line Promenade.

There are to cruise ships in Yokohama today. The biggest is the Diamond Princess.

All the trucks parked on the pier are off-loading supplies for the ship.

It must be nice to have one of the passenger cabins on the stern of the ship.

Looking down the center of the pier one can see the Diamond Princess on the left and the Asuka II on the right side.

The Asuka II is an older Japanese cruise ship.

Just a view from the port side of Osanbashi pier.

The bow of the Asuka II with the Minato-mirai skyline in the background.

Looking back at Osanbashi pier as I move on.

Goofing off at Zou-no-hana (Elephant Nose).

It's lovely out here.

The guy in the green t-shirt is running circles around us.

Where ever I go, there he is.

Moving on.

 On the left is the elevated Yamashita Rinko Line Promenade

Time to change to the  Fujinon XF 60mm f2.4 R Macro lens.

A view of the Diamond Princess form Yamashita park.

Everyone enjoys Yamashita park - it's mandatory!

Seagulls taking a break on the mooring chines of the Hikawa Maru.

This young girl was excitedly looking at the seagulls by leaning way over the safety rail.

Grandma reels her back in.

Time to check out the  macro feature of this lens in the Yamashita park flower garden.

So far, so good.

I am not alone in the garden.

Delicate shades of yellow and pink.

Time to check out China Town. It's only a 3 minute walk from Yamashita park.

This 60mm lens is good for isolating people in a crowd.

She's happy to be here!

Gotta check the phone.

Looking around.

With hundreds of restaurants in China town somebody has got to deliver the vegetables.

Reading her palms?

Another happy visitor.

After leaving China town it's only a few minutes walk to Nihon Odori Boulevard.

Last shot of the day: Crossing the Boulevard!

Thanks for stopping by!
