Keeping it simple with the Fuji X-Pro2 and 18-55mm zoom

When I venture out with the Fuji X-Pro2 instead of the X-T2 it is usually because I want to keep my kit simple and unencumbered. Often this means outfitting it with the 23mm f/1.4 or, when I want a bit more versatility, the humble 18-55mm, the original Fuji X zoom.  This lens still has a comfortable aperture spread of f/2.8-4 and provides a practical equivalent focal length of 27-85mm.  Plus, focus is quick on the X-Pro2. The aperture is fast enough for some decent bokeh effects, which I needed for these photos I did wide open of rain on windows.  We've had a lot of rain lately in the city.

Basic though it may be, the X-Pro2 plus 18-55mm zoom is a great combo where you're pretty much limited only by your imagination.
