Shot with my Fuji X100V in jpg mode. gasp! shock! I know...I know...
Kim and I decided to make the best of my last half-day of work for the summer and wound up spending some time at the Historic Pearl District before making our way over to the King William District / Southtown. I never really go into these day trips with a plan so I grabbed my new Fuji X100V and we started wandering around the Pearl around 4:30pm.
I don't mind eating heavier, sit-down meals but when it's really hot and I'm walking around -- I usually just prefer a cocktail and some tasty snacks. The Pearl has a great selection of higher end fare so we started at Bakery Lorraine (dessert first thank-you-very-much) and grabbed a couple of those amazing macrons that they are known for.
Afterwards, we discovered that Cured was doing a happy hour from 4 - 6 with $2 Pearl beer and apps / lighter fare. In particular, the fried quail legs were outstanding! Having run out of things to see at the Pearl, we headed down to Southtown for a couple of German beers and brauts with sauerkraut at the Beethoven Maennerchor.
Overall it was a great afternoon / evening and we look forward to going back. The Fuji X100V worked a treat and all pictures in this posting were taken with it. I LOVE how powerful and inconspicuous the X100 series is and it's definitely nice to be able to leave the bag of lenses at home when you want a light kit. Color rendering / saturation of the jpgs out-of-camera looks really great and required very little touch up before posting. I think I bumped shadows just a touch and sharpened the resized photos on export. What a great little camera! I love it already.
Next week I believe we're hitting Earl Abel's fried chicken....should be awesome!
