Strange New World

FUJIFILM X-Pro2 (14mm, f/5.6, 1/80 sec, ISO400) It’s a strange new world. No I’m not talking C. I’m talking about a car that I saw on my last trip to Japan in February. Of course at that time I had no idea that this would...

Slow Train Coming

FUJIFILM X-Pro2 (35mm, f/2.8, 1/3800 sec, ISO200) I just returned from Japan. My seventh trip. I still discover something new every time I go there. This time it was so cold that I bought a cheap down jacket and a hat at Uniqlo on the...

Adieu, Sweet Bahnhof

The Future of Photography

FUJIFILM X-Pro2 (23mm, f/2.8, 1/100 sec, ISO400) Photography always played an important part in my life. Just like music and HiFi. But both hobbies seem to be endangered today. What happened? About 12 years ago Apple introduced the iPhone. A mobile phone that looked radically different...

The Times The Are a-Changin’

FUJIFILM X-Pro2 (14mm, f/3.2, 1/60 sec, ISO1000) DMZ. For most people those three letters don’t say much. Except if they are from Korea or if they, like me, have visited the country. DMZ means demilitarised zone and describes the border in between South Korea and...

Fast Train

FUJIFILM X-Pro2 (23mm, f/2, 1/100 sec, ISO1000) Since I moved to the country side I don’t ride trains a lot anymore. Where I live you need a car to get around. There is one exception though. When I’m in Japan I always take the train....

The Future of Fuji X

Canon PowerShot G7 X (15.79mm, f/4, 1/5 sec, ISO200) When I got the Fuji X100 in 2011 I had no idea that it would change everything. It was just supposed to be my compact, take everywhere camera. One year later I got the X-Pro1 and slowly added...
