    We were in Cheltenham today, had planned on going to Weston-Super-Mare but there was a huge traffic jam on the motorway so we opted for Cheltenham instead.
    It was overcast with the threat of rain but luckily it kept away.
    I had the XP2 with me with a choice of lenses but opted to shoot with the 56mm.

    Some excellent street photography there! I love #'s 2 & 3 in particular. I usually think the 56 is too long for street work but your images show how effective it can be.

    Thank you both, I normally shoot street with the superb 35 f1.4 but also like to challenge myself by using a lens not normally known for street, the 56 did work very well and was a lot faster to focus than expected.

    The Fuji library of lenses continue to amaze me with the quality of the images that they can produce, your photos are testament to that!

    I don't have the 35 1.4 but its country cousin the 23 1.4 and the 56 1.2, I've held off from getting the 35 1.4 because I prefer the 23 1.4, but you are not helping! :drinks:

    At the moment I need another lens like a hole in the head, "If I were a rich man tra la":boohoo:
