Dodging the rain on campus on Monday, my sub-conscious mind must have registered the various doublings between and within these two quick shots, separated by about four hours (both with Fuji X100). Or maybe I was just in an uphill kind of mood that day, and coincidence played its habitual part, who can say?
That was a truly stonking rainbow, though, which I have actually toned down a little: one of the guys on the path pulled out his mobile to photograph it himself shortly thereafter. I would have liked to have isolated the Nuffield and the sculpture-with-no-name with the rainbow, but that's the price of not having a zoom (or not carrying two cameras).
A good thing about the X100 is that, having a less prominent "snout" than most cameras with an APS-C sensor (never mind one fitted with an f/2 lens), it slips neatly and safely away beneath your coat during rain showers, without snagging on inner pockets and linings. I can imagine it would be a good, discreet camera to have on holiday walkabouts. Its retro looks give it a usefully harmless, touristy appearance, too, quite different from putting a bulbous, stealth-bomber-black DSLR up to your eye.
Mind you, I suppose from now on anyone not using their phone to take a picture is going to be pretty conspicuous, anyway. Though not as conspicuous as those twits who use their iPad as a camera. How unreflectingly, un-selfconsciously idiotic do you have to be, to do that in a public place? It's kind of magnificent, in an annoying sort of way.
