Via Flickr: things you might see around Santiago, Chile. Photos by John Bankson using a Fujifilm X-T1 camera paired with a Fujinon XF18-135mm F3.5-5.6 R LM OIS WR lens.

The kit I brought with me to Germany; Toyo VX125, Fujinon 65mm SWD, Fujinon 90mm SWD, Nikkor 135mm W, Feisol Tournament tripod, and accessories. Overall it worked pretty well and was actually lighter than my Rollei setup, but I noticed that my lenses didn’t always have as much image circle as I would really like. Since coming home I actually sold those and switched to using these; Nikkor 75mm SW, Fujinon 105mm SWD, Fujinon 150mm CM-W.

I wandered lonely as a cloud
         That floats on high o'er vales and hills,
         When all at once I saw a crowd,
         A host, of golden daffodils;
         Beside the lake, beneath the trees,
         Fluttering and dancing in the breeze.

         Continuous as the stars that shine
         And twinkle on the milky way,
         They stretched in never-ending line
         Along the margin of a bay:
         Ten thousand saw I at a glance,
         Tossing their heads in sprightly dance.

         The waves beside them danced; but they
         Out-did the sparkling waves in glee:
         A poet could not but be gay,
         In such a jocund company:
         I gazed–and gazed–but little thought
         What wealth the show to me had brought:

         For oft, when on my couch I lie
         In vacant or in pensive mood,
         They flash upon that inward eye
         Which is the bliss of solitude;
         And then my heart with pleasure fills,
         And dances with the daffodils.

William Wordsworth (1815)
