I spent the past week taking advantage of Spring Break to take a trip out to California with the family. We hadn’t been back to the Bay Area and Monterey for about two years, and it is one of our favorite places to visit.
For this trip, I decided to pack light and only take my Fuji XT-1 with the 23mm, 56mm and 14mm lenses. I ended up using the Fujinon XF 23mm f/1.4 lens most the time, but I did do some street photography with the Fujinon 14mm f/2.8 lens in San Francisco.
While I love the 56mm lens for portraits, the 23mm has proven to be my favorite general purpose lens. It handles itself well in most any circumstance, from portraits to travel shots. Here are some of the shots with this trio.
