2016-04-23 Palomar to Alpine Mt Drive

So, at 10pm on Friday night, because I am lame and am at home at that time, I ordered an adapter to put Contax G lenses on my Fuji XT10. At 10am on Saturday morning, it was delivered.

I am still getting used to the whole manual focusing thing (haven't had to do that in 20 years!), so the focus is off on some. I do love this lens, though. I just have to get better to use it right. 

A couple of my friends agreed that it would be fun to drive across the back side of San Diego County this weekend, so we started up Couser Canyon, Palomar Mountain (the picture above is from the East Grade), Mesa Grande, up to Julian (and a quick stop at Nickel Brewing) and down Sunrise Highway and to Alpine Brewing for dinner.  The weather was freaking amazing, there was very little traffic, and much fun was had by all. I am lucky to have friends that enjoy doing silly things with me.
