The Boys of Summer

FUJIFILM X-H1 (32.1mm, f/5.6, 1/220 sec, ISO200) Empty beach, empty streets, the sun goes down alone… But it’s early in the morning and we decided to go to the beach on more time before we leave. The early morning light was beautiful and there were...

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...

It’s the End of the World as We Know it

FUJIFILM X-Pro2 (14mm, f/7.1, 1/200 sec, ISO200) Cherry blossom season in Seoul, Korea. No I haven’t traveled there recently. I took those images a year ago when life was still normal. Now everything has changed. Because of a virus. Covid19 better known by its street...

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

FUJIFILM X-Pro2 (14mm, f/5.6, 1/100 sec, ISO250) On my first trip to Japan I flew to Osaka and the train station was the first place I went. Mainly because I assumed that there are many restaurants. I was right about the restaurants. There are plenty...

Downbound Train

FUJIFILM X-Pro2 (23mm, f/8, 1/170 sec, ISO200) An escalator lifts you from downtown LA to a big office park with modern skyscrapers, cafes and a small resting area with water and plants. Like an oasis in the desert. Downtown LA has seen much better days....

Bighorns and a Big Lens

FUJIFILM X-Pro2 (301.1mm, f/8, 1/250 sec, ISO200) Sometimes all you need is luck and a long lens. And to stand up early helps too. This is our third time in the Valley of Fire State Park and the second time that we had the chance...

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....
