Balanced Budget Update 2013

Since a recent election in B.C., I haven’t had much time for personal photography. That’s because it has been busy at work.

Notes: Executive Council announcement and Throne Speech photos shot with a Nikon D600 and D700 and 24-70mm and 70-200mm lenses. Portraits shot with the Fujifilm X-Pro 1 with the XF60mm lens. Budget Update shot with the X100s and X-P1 and 60mm lens.
