Photo Walk in Williams

Fuji X100 | 1/480 sec, f/7.1, ISO 800

Blogging from the car again! These are images from the beginning of our road trip, taken during  a stop over in Williams, a quaint little town about 45 minutes from the Grand Canyon. There were so many interesting things to see downtown that the wife and I woke up earlier than the rest of the group for a quick photo walk:


Fuji X100 | 1/220 sec, f/4.5, ISO 400

Classic gas station with not-so-classic prices.


Fuji X100 | 1/450 sec, f/6.4, ISO 800


Fuji X100 | 1/210 sec, f/3.6, ISO 200


Fuji X100 |1/480 sec, f/6.4, ISO 800


Fuji X100 | 1/280 sec, f/5, ISO 800


Fuji X100 |  1/600 sec, f/8, ISO 800

I love the way the X100 renders blue skies. This is the Astia film simulation preset, which has become my film mode of choice when shooting JPEG.

Williams was cool!

Last night was our final night in Arizona. Yesterday we hit up Tombstone and Kartchner Caverns (AMAZING PLACE! No photography allowed…poo). As the sun set, we spent time taking a look at the local cacti. Not your garden variety cacti either. The tall Saguaro cactus is a huge goliath that can weigh up to 8 tons!

Fuji X100 | 1/110 sec, f/4, ISO 200


Fuji X100 | 1/680 sec, f/2, ISO 200

And here I am now. It’s a long drive home!

  3. Wow, your photos are terrific. It looks like the old American movies, the signs, the petrol station, the desert. Super nice.

  4. Yes sir that is the way it was when I was a kid. Only then, it was not so much of the interest as that is just the way it was. Many times I traveled Route 66…..it was a shame when it was replaced. in-joyed the memories.

  5. Great vibrant colors. The town and the desert look so cool. Can’t decide if I like the cactus pictures more or the gas stations. Both are great

  7. The first part of the post reminded me of the movie “Cars” for some reason. Dunno why! And the second half of pics looks so surreal – totally different than what I’ve ever seen except for in movies. awesome set! looks like you had a blast.
