Sub-Urban Jungle

As we were not permitted to travel to the Belgian Congo, or the Daintree rainforest, or the favelas of Adelaide, I decided to do my jungle exploration in the potato patch.

It had now grown to the extent that it could be seen from space and before it was attacked by the inevitable worms, I decided to go on safari. The camera chosen was the Fujifilm X-E2 and the lens the landscape choice; the Fujinon XF 16mm f:2.8. Not the first choice of many, but I hope to use this combination for other things in the future – including panoramic work.

The shots were taken blindly, as the sun was too bright to see the LCD screen. The focal length of the lens combined with an aperture of f:8 meant every blessed thing was focusable. All you had to do was point, shoot, and watch for marauding boa constrictors.

The kangaroo paw plant iwa shouting for joy in the sun.
