FUJIFILM X-H1 (55mm, f/4, 1/5800 sec, ISO800) When we decided to finally visit the East side of the USA it was clear that we have to come here to the Niagara Falls. And rightly so. Yes I have seen waterfalls before but that one is...

Late Summer Lake

FUJIFILM X-H1 (18.7mm, f/7.1, 1/550 sec, ISO200) We left Detroit to go to Niagara Falls but because I forgot my laptop in our hotel in Cleveland we could’t take the shorter drive on the Canadian side. In our first vacation in the USA this would...

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...

Greetings from Asbury Park, N.J.

FUJIFILM X-H1 (23.4mm, f/5.6, 1/400 sec, ISO200) Originally I planned to go to Atlantic City. Mostly because of the Bruce Springsteen song from the Nebraska album. But then I thought I could do even better. So we ended up in Asbury Park, N.J. Instead of...

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....

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...

Brand New Day in LA

FUJIFILM X-Pro2 (23mm, f/8, 1/480 sec, ISO200) The sky is cloudless and blue, there are palm trees everywhere and the car beside my is a Dodge Challenger in bright yellow. Life is good! We are finally in the USA again. This time we are in the South...

FUJIFILM X-Pro2 (37.6mm, f/9, 1/450 sec, ISO200) Maybe with some gear talk and some statistics. Here are the lenses that I took with me this time: XF 10-24/4 R OIS XF 16-55/2.8 R LM WR XF 55-200/3.5-4.8 R LM OIS XF 100-400/4.5-5.6 R LM WR OIS XF...

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...
