Unsuitable Art

FUJIFILM X-Pro2 (23mm, f/3.6, 1/1900 sec, ISO200) Another museum blogpost. Before we move on to the giant trees of the Sequoia NP there is more art – some of it unsuitable. You have been warned. I love the USA or to be more precise I...

So Quiet in Here

FUJIFILM X-Pro2 (14mm, f/8, 1/140 sec, ISO200) This blog post has nothing to do with the song of Van Morrison but it still fits perfectly or better literally. Museum are not the busiest places in the world. Except of course if they have paintings of Da Vinci...

Survivors

FUJIFILM X-Pro2 (14mm, f/8, 1/350 sec, ISO200) We still had some time to kill before the museum of contemporary art opened so we visited the tarpit museum next door. A very smart move to get more visitors. It’s a very small museum but its size...

House on the Hill

FUJIFILM X-Pro2 (14mm, f/5.6, 1/640 sec, ISO200) Museums are always a great place to visit. Some are famous for their exhibitions, some for the architecture but the special thing about the Getty Center is its location. It’s located on the top of a hill. The car park...

Chinese Cave Temples go Hollywood

FUJIFILM X-Pro2 (14mm, f/4, 1/40 sec, ISO3200) No wrong tags here. This is a blog post with pictures taken in Los Angeles. At the Getty Museum to be more precise. During our last vacation in the USA we also visited the Getty Museum again. It’s a great...

Another Year Over

FUJIFILM X-Pro2 (35mm, f/2, 1/125 sec, ISO320) Well almost. Just one more week. Time to look back and ahead. Looking back: 2017 was annoying, entertaining, boring, fun, horrible, beautiful, exciting, stressful, breathtaking and everything in between. Looking ahead: Tomorrow is Christmas. So Merry Christmas to...

Falling Water

FUJIFILM X-Pro2 (10mm, f/9, 1/40 sec, ISO200) There are many great places on earth but just a couple are magical. This is one of them. The Plitivice Lakes in Croatia. This is the second time that we visited the place. Last year on a beautiful...

No Fairytale in Mumbai

FUJIFILM X-Pro2 (23mm, f/5.6, 1/210 sec, ISO200) Last time in Mumbai this was the view from my hotel room: A slum. Not the first time but this one was different. Mumbai is one of the biggest cities in the world with a population of more...

Yakitori Time

FUJIFILM X-Pro2 (23mm, f/2, 1/60 sec, ISO1250) In May I spent a week in Japan. Of course I ate only Sushi and Ramen but at the end of my trip I had to eat something else. Yakitori Time! Yakitori, the ultimate fast food. Japanese skewered...

Hair

FUJIFILM X-Pro2 (56mm, f/2, 1/400 sec, ISO1250) The last two months I didn’t take many pictures but than I once occasion came up. A dog show. When I was a boy I always wanted to have a dog. But I didn’t get one. I got...
