The Stray Cats of Porto

Beautiful Stray

guest post by Adam – adambonn.com website

A very great many ‘togs seem to protest at the idea of cat photos…

When the Fujifilm X-Pro2 finally landed, the internet wags quipped that the Fujifilm X-Pro1 was now only good for “cat shots and infrared conversion”

:) I did have to laugh

The thing is…

I love cats!

I realise that some find them aloof, greedy and self centred. But animals didn’t ask to be domesticated, they didn’t sign up to some mutually exclusive deal, you scratch my back, I’ll scratch yours. Animals exist in our domesticated world because we have use for them, or because we tolerate them.

But many large urban areas have stray animals, perhaps once a pet, perhaps the offspring of a pet. Strays are NOT a Porto problem, they’re not a London problem or a Rome problem or a anywhere problem, they’re a humanistic problem.

Strays say something about our own species; and it’s not nice. Animals stuck in a neither world of not being part of human existence nor being free of it. They exist in this space because of the human world and despite the human world.

When we take a pet, we create a dependant. When we break that bond, we create a shadow.

These are not cutesy kitties, they could be… they have the capacity, but these are street creatures, discarded and dirty. Left to eek out an existence on whatever they can get.

I love cats.

And when I look into the eyes of these strays I see the struggle they’ve endured and their defiance in never giving up. This isn’t some sort of aloof detachment. This is the primordial square root of survival. Even the little indoors only kitty curled up on your bed has this ability.

These cats are not pets… To me, they’re as valid street subjects as anything else in the genre, after all, if we say that ‘street’ is the documentary of the humanistic world, then what tells our story more than the problems we create and the things we discard?

All these shot are taken with the X-Pro1 and X-T1.

Both bodies soon only to be suitable for infrared conversion, and cat shots. Perhaps even infrared cat shots :)

I realise that you may not enjoy cat shots… But hopefully you’ve seen a different side of the kitty, one which is perhaps a bit more engaging than a pampered fat cat chasing a toy or lapping up some milk…

If it’s of interest, you can see more of my work on the links below.

Warm regards
Adam

Instax Share SP-2 Printer To Be Announced in June :: FUJIFILM Instax SP-1 now 30% Off (until June 10)

isntax

Ok, I know, coincidence exists.

So it could just be a coincidence, that the Instax Share SP-1 Printer is now almost 30% off at BHphoto and Adorama until June 10…

… or…

… there is some truth in the rumor that says the Instax SP-2 printer is coming. And, if Fuji doesn’t make some last minutes changes, the printer should be announced this month!

As you can see here, I already own the Instax SP-1 printer and use it a lot… but I think I’ll grab the SP-2 version, too.

Fuji X-Pro2: “First Comes The Feel, then the Specs… but that ISO-dial !” – Riflessifotografici Review & More

image courtesy: Riflessifotografici

I know, there is a lot of buzz around the imminent X-T2 launch… a buzz that is almost eclipsing the fact that just about 3 months ago, a camera called Fujifilm X-Pro2 hit the market.

So let’s get back to it, and honour the amazing X-Pro2 with a dedicated roundup.

1) Let’s start with a refreshing review at riflessifotografici here (English VersionItalian Version). But be aware: don’t expect the usual pixel peeping, 100% magnification, and too much tech talk. This review focusses more on the “philosophy” and “feel” of the X-Pro2 rather than just on the mere specs. A review, with more emphasis on the optical viewfinder experience rather than on the EVF refresh rate. And… a review without images of walls or bookshelves ;) . Make sure to check out “Fujifilm X-Pro2… Back to the Futurehere at riflessifotografici.

2) Also located in Italy, the “Postcards From Rome – Photographing the Ponte Fabricio” by karenhutton. It’s a short video, where Karen shows you how she captured the Ponte Fabricio at sunset in Rome.

3) To see how the X-Pro2 (with 56mmF1.2) performed in Low Light at a Concert, check out “Live At Last – A new Fuji X-perience!” at littlebigtravelingcamera. Spoiler Alert: “The combo performed flawless

4)If you are considering the X-Pro2 just do it. Every once in a while a new digital camera comes along that sets a new benchmark and in my opinion this is one such camera“. Why? Just check out “Lily, in the studio, with the Fuji X-Pro2” at lloyd-roach

5) Fuji X-Pro2 – The difficult attempt of a first approach – Part 1 in German at peterpoete (translation) – Part 2 in German at peterpoete (translation)

6) Yep, I know, many of us don’t buy Fuji for shooting video. However, it’s good to hear that the X-Pro2 made some nice step forwards also in this compartment. Read “X-Pro 2 Diary: Some thoughts on Shooting Video” at thomasfitzgeraldphotography

7) X-Pro2 Review, substance over specs at Mirrorlessons.
