My friend Tom Tauber had promised a ride in a glider awhile back. We were finally able to find a day that worked. What a blast!! Tom had a GoPro camera, so I took a few video clips of the event which can be seen by clicking on these links. Me in the Glider #1 , Glider Ride #2, Glider Landing #3.
On the way home I stopped at a gas station to fill up and met Geoff. I had my Fuji 56mm 1.2 lens with me, so I gathered the courage to ask if I could get a couple of shots. We ended up having a delighful conversation where I learned he too is a photographer. I only wish I had a bit more courage to ask him to pose a little differently as I really wanted to get a side shot that would show the mohawk better. None the less, another example of always having gear with you. Sure am loving the 56mm Fuji lens. I’ve never had 1.2 glass and man that creates bokeh! Fun!
