A City United by suberashi

Local derbies in England are revered things, every town or city has some kind of tribal mindset when comes down to football loyalties. Manchester has always had a pretty fierce divide, the two city clubs have sometimes had an inbalance in on and off field status. That's changed obliviously in recent years and it's seems we are at the zenith of the Manchester stand off. 

2-2 yeah?  

2-2 yeah?  

Arguably this is now the world's biggest local derby with the histrionics, star names, the cash sloshing around and of course ego's of two clubs trying to be the best in Europe.  I've heard lots over the years about the red and blue halves of Manchester's disdain for each other.

The overall vibe though  here is a city dominating the landscape of football globally, the volume people  knocking around gives the Staduim a feel of a stately home or national landmark. It's true for some this is a pilgrimage, just as many international voices as Salford twangs.

Even me as an Arsenal fan can see the theatre of of it. And on a day like today with the new Gods of Olympus holding court it had an extra pinch of occasion.

Anyway United lost 2-1 I don't think the significance is lost this was a huge game, Pep saunters back to the Ethihad knowing he has caused pain and is a few miles up the hill than his nemesis. Enjoy the pics, stealth mode with the Fuji x100 and Oly Mju.

Little word in the Olympus Mju that was a quid from a local car boot. Discreet is the word, it's champagne so it has no "real" camera steez about it but it's steller.

Quiet, fast this is the zoom version but that helps out extra reach. It has become my daily pick up  over my x100 and is perfect for knocking around streets and games.

Overall a good insight into the battle of Manchester. I held off posting until United and City had played in Europe. Seems both works in progress are at different places United struggle, Pogba not settled Pep has. Jose already not naming but shaming. Going to be a corker this...

Amsterdam and a camera by suberashi

I have said it before apart from New York, this is the best city in the world. This was the first time I have had the chance to take the xt1 for a whirl overseas so here's some pics with that camera in that city.

This city never gets boring, give me Chocomel and some sunshine and I'm set. Exploring, hearing languages from all over the world, Amsterdam is beyond cosmopolitan full of street smarts. Even as someone who visits often I still find new things to see and snap.

how did the xt1 get do? Proper . simple as, everything is stepped up from the xpro1. I never not wanted to have the camera with me. When I had a DSLR I would get weary of carrying that lump, even the xpro for some reason did the same thing. this is different plus the addition of the wifi transfer was slick for me. shoot export edit in VSCO upload and go again. I enjoy this camera a lot, I really do it has even more stealth quality over my old Fuji great for trekking though the urban. I have had chats about people ditching Fuji for Sony full frame yaaawwwwwrn it's a boring debate for me. I don't see it for one reason the glass, if Sony ever came close to this glass then maybe but they don't so why change? You can have all the full frame sensors you want if the glass sucks game over.
