    Just some snaps from my trip into town!

    XPRO5319.SP7.
    The Stairs into the Market!

    XPRO5324.SP7.
    Stuff. In bags. For Sale.

    XPRO5325.SP7.
    Pork based produce and sausages isn't just a Spanish thing!

    XPRO5334.SP7.
    A Mountain of Cherries!

    XPRO5337.SP7.
    Frankly.... It's all tat!

    XPRO5345.SP7_1.
    In prep for today's São João (23/6) celebrations


    XPRO5359.SP7.
    Church of Saint Ildefonso

    XPRO5370.SP7.
    The tourist Tram... (Still a nice, if a little pricey, way to get to Foz though!)

    I guess that's your lot!

    I really do enjoy using the X-Pro1 for this sort of work... I'm not in a hurry, I can take my time... The camera is pretty unobtrusive and I enjoy working with the files when I get home!

    So still no X-Pro2 on my horizon!! Never say never though, I didn't think I'd get a X-T1 - until I did :)

    Thanks for looking!

    Thank you very much Amin,

    This is true of a lot of places no doubt... But I don't run out of things to photograph here, that's for sure!

    Lovely photos and a superb combo to shoot with, the X-Pro series in my opinion do tend to slow down the photographic process and for me after years of using analogue rangefinders they make me consider my images a lot more carefully.

    Thanks Ian, Porto's so photogenic that really, I just point the camera at things...

    I know what you mean about the RF mentality though... I haven't picked up my X-T1 for WEEKS.. probably time to flip it, for.... Hmmmm well the head says glass... but I am quite curious about the XP2...
