500 – Got My Mojo Working

FUJIFILM X-Pro2 (23mm, f/4, 1/1250 sec, ISO200) Blog post 500! I started this blog about five years ago. My major inspiration was the Fuji X100. Now my main camera is the Fuji X Pro-2. Seems that very little has changed. But that’s not true. I...

Wooderful Life

FUJIFILM X-Pro2 (23mm, f/4, 1/100 sec, ISO500) It’s almost unbelievable how many goods are made in Taiwan especially if you consider the size of the country. This is maybe the most adorable. The company “Wooderful Life” produces little landscapes or music boxes. Magnets that run...

My favourite 3 Fuji lenses

FUJIFILM X-Pro2 (14mm, f/4, 1/1000 sec, ISO200) There is no such thing as one truth when it comes to lenses. At the end it is a very personal thing. Here I want to share my favourite Fuji lenses and why I prefer them over the...

The Power and the Glory

FUJIFILM X-Pro2 (23mm, f/4, 1/8 sec, ISO200) When you grow older you become a more rational person. You think twice before you spend an huge amount of money. I thought more than twice but finally decided that I live only once. This is a blog...

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...

The Good, the Bad and the Ugly

FUJIFILM X-T1 (25.4mm, f/8, 1/7 sec, ISO200) I know sometimes I use too many words in my blog post. But not this time! In this article I will keep it short. I will describe the good, the bad and the ugly of the primes  from...

Swimming in a Fishbowl

FUJIFILM X-Pro2 (14mm, f/2.8, 1/200 sec, ISO2500) Before I went to Japan for the first time it was clear to me that I had to come here. The Kaiyukan, the Aquarium in Osaka, one of the biggest Aquariums in the world. I love aquariums but the real...
