Some more from last summer. These are from north-eastern Norway, by the border to Russia. In some places only a small and shallow stream separates the two countries, but if you walk down to it armed border guards show up almost immediately. They were all smiles though and happily obliged when I asked for a photo in front of the Russian border markings. You may recognize some of the subjects, because I posted photos from this trip in the Fuji thread about half a year ago and maybe also a couple of them in color in this thread.

Some random shots during the annual desert RV meeting in Quartzite, Arizona where nearly a quarter of a million people from around the world converge on otherwise barren desert.

Number 2 and 4 are fantastic Helena. I would've liked the last one better if the lady had her eyes open.

sebboh, I like "industrial" subjects like those. Good compositions and mood.

Thank you! I agree completely about the eyes, but I get stressed when I take photos of strangers, so I almost always mess up in one way or the other. They were so cute and friendly, and I like the photo anyway, but the next time I will focus first, then switch to MF (I have a designated button for switching between AF and MF), then take two or three shots in a row. Then at least one should be OK. Since RX1 is completely quiet people won't know that I do that.

Yes the leaf shutter is fantastic for candid shots. An easier alternative than switching to MF is to shoot a small burst. That way you always have one shot with the eyes open.
BTW, that fourth shot might be one of the nicest B&W photos I've seen from you.

Thank you, great tip! I think I'll practice with people I know first...
Glad you like the abandoned boat shot. I always admire your B&Ws so that great to hear. I usually start with my favorite B&W preset, then make a few adjustments. The same for all (except the one with the sheep), but I guess it just suited the boat scene best.

Btw. we stopped the car just to look at the fjord and the mountains - the boat was completely hidden from the road. Fortunately I decided to walk down to the beach and I won't deny that my heart started to beat a little faster when I saw the old fishing boat spotlighted by the low sun... You can't see it here, but parts of the boat had thick green moss growing on it. Very picturesque.

First a mug of coffee and then a visit to the tent sale in the desert -- a bad place for lenses without caps.

Good comment. Shot taken in pre-sunrise light from window. You are right about grain of course but I don't have a lot of experience with noise correction. The shot was taken at F/6.3 for the desired DOF and 1/80 which is about as slow as I want to go hand held. This pushed the the ISO to 6400. I did some noise correction on both color and luminance but I don't really have any developed "technique" or expertise for this. Comments welcome.

Helena, great finds! I cannot wait for the price to drop a little more on the used RX1s or for a newer one to come out, looks like a perfect camera to keep on you everywhere
