The Lockdown Logs #39 – Final Edition!

The Lockdown Logs

Dateline: June 12th 2020

Final Edition!  Whether the government like it or not, the Lockdown is more or less over for most of us, and I was BACK AT WORK TODAY!  So here’s my very first commercial shoot of the rest of my life, and the last of my Lockdown Logs (and I’m not sorry to see the end of the Lockdown!)

Fujifilm X-T3, F=55mm, f/7.1 @ 1/60th sec on ISO 3200.

However, whatever way you spend Christmas Day, HAVE A HAPPY, BLESSED AND SAFE DAY.  Enjoy your food, your family and your photography, and hope that Santa brings you a Hasselblad!
