20 Photos using the Fuji X-E1 and the 35mm f/1.4 lens in Ethiopia

Before heading to Ethiopia in October I knew there would be a limit to the amount of camera gear I could bring in my rucksack. Having acquired the beautiful Fuji X-E1 earlier in the year to improve my documentary skills I asked around for lenses that would be good to use with it whilst travelling.  A friend recommended the 35mm f1.4 and essentially gave it to me, I must say it’s a brilliant little lens.

As I’ve said on other posts, I love the X-E1 because of the fact it draws little attention to the photographer due to it’s small size.

These are my favourite photos from the trip using that superb lens:
