October 2019

October 2019

October in Knoxville means you start your day with 40° temperatures, wear t-shirts in the afternoon when it hits 75° and then wonder why it’s suddenly raining.

Other than keeping up with the weather I was booked with football games, daily assignments and even photographing Dolly Parton’s red carpet event at Dollywood. Tennessee basketball is starting up as well, so we are getting geared up for another exciting basketball season.

In case you’ve been living under a rock, it should be no surprise that I’m a huge Fujifilm fan boy. I’ve had two X100’s, an X-T20 and currently use an X-Pro2. I even have a Fujifilm tote bag. If I could convince Gannett to buy me a full Fuji kit and ditch these Nikon’s I’d do it in a heartbeat. Fuji recently unveiled their X-Pro3, and I’m in love. If you are interested in purchasing an X-Pro2, it is up for sale. Please send me a message on Facebook if you’re interested!
