Shooting with the Fujifilm X100s is a very different experience for me. Not looking through the viewfinder takes some getting use to. One good thing is that people seem less intimidated when you look like a tourist holding your camera up high, looking clueless. Unfortunately for me and my new camera, that’s pretty close to the truth. We started at the National Gallery of Canada and walked to the Alexandra Bridge, down to the Ottawa locks and back up the Plaza Bridge. Click on the images to enlarge for better viewing.
