A Dead Shark but No Lions

FUJIFILM X-Pro2 (14mm, f/8, 1/200 sec, ISO320) Pier 39 is a famous tourist spot. There is even a Hard Rock Cafe which is always a sign that you are at the very centre of tourism. There is nothing wrong with that of course. Tourist spots are popular...

555 – Found What I’m Looking For?

FUJIFILM X-Pro1 (192.9mm, f/9, 1/125 sec, ISO200) Blog post number 555. I never thought that I will keep this thing running for such a long time. Time to look back and ahead. I started this blog in 2012, almost 7 years ago. At that time I just...

San Francisco Blues

FUJIFILM X-Pro2 (14mm, f/4, 1/40 sec, ISO4000) The blue hour is always special but it’s magic when you are in a beautiful city in a high rise building. That’s why I sometimes just look out of the window and watch the sky to get dark and the...

Dragons and Quotes

FUJIFILM X-Pro2 (14mm, f/8, 1/300 sec, ISO200) I have to admit that I don’t know too many big cities in the USA but this one is my favourite  so far – by far. San Francisco is an amazing place and with our hotel located at Union Square...

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...

Lunch With a View

FUJIFILM X-Pro2 (23.3mm, f/9, 1/800 sec, ISO200) Morro Bay one more time. I think I forgot to include the iconic 550 feet high rock that makes Morro Bay so special. But from my former blog post you know that it’s not just the rock or...

Sea Otters, Pelicans, Young Lovers

SONY ILCE-6000 (57mm, f/9, 1/250 sec, ISO100) And a massive power plant. That’s Morro Bay. But worry not, the power plant is out of operation now. This is a place that I passed a couple of times on my way down to Los Angeles and...

Under The Boardwalk

FUJIFILM X-Pro2 (10mm, f/10, 1/320 sec, ISO200) I love the beach and I love wooden boardwalks so Pismo Beach seems to be the perfect spot for me. Especially when the sun is about to set you get those beautiful shadows from the boardwalk. I put...

Back To The Beach

FUJIFILM X-Pro2 (18mm, f/7.1, 1/340 sec, ISO200) June 2016 was crazy hot especially in the South West of the USA. Because of the heat we changed our trip and we ended up at the beach again much earlier that we have planned. Carpinteria, a small town South...
