We spent four or five days away from home last week and in the comfort of close family. Three nights were spent in the comfort of a cabin — the first time I’ve ever had such an opportunity — and two days were spent day-camping (or “glamping” as I’ve been told, although there wasn’t anything too glamorous about our time away).

This introduction to lake-life and cabin-life was incredibly eye-opening and is sure to have a lasting impression. Owning a cottage has shot to the top of my bucket list and we’re currently looking at scheduling more weekends away, in the close comfort of friends and family, sitting on a dock with a glass of wine in hand. I can only imagine how much more fun it gets with a boat, some tubes, and some fishing rods.

Here are a few memories from our trip, and a bit of a peek into our earliest shots with our new Fujifilm X-T2. As we shot during the week, we discovered Fuji’s built-in film presets. Without hesitation, Jaclyn and I flipped back and forth between Classic Chrome and Acros, grinning from ear to ear with each shutter fire. It’s an entirely new experience being able to share a photo directly from the camera and straight to Instagram.

All photos shot with the Fujifilm X-T2, Fujinon XF 23mm f/2 WR, and Fujinon XF 35mm f/2 WR. Not all are shot in Classic Chrome or Acros, as we only discovered these presets mid-way through our vacation.
