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....

Space Oddity

FUJIFILM X-Pro2 (14mm, f/4, 1/40 sec, ISO1250) Sometimes it is simple. Be at the right place at the right time. Then all you have to do is to push the shutter button. This spaceship like object is the design museum in Dongdaemun in Seoul, South Korea designed...

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...

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...

No Place Like Home

FUJIFILM X-Pro2 (16mm, f/2, 1/125 sec, ISO2500) I travel a lot and that includes amazing places but “There is no place like home”. That’s especially true when it’s Christmas time. In the middle of December I was in Japan. There were Christmas trees and lights everywhere and...

Piss Alley

FUJIFILM X-Pro2 (23mm, f/2, 1/125 sec, ISO800) Most streets in the centre of Tokyo are well lit, modern and super clean. This one is not and I love it. Very close to the famous Shinjuku station (the busiest train station in the world) you can...

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...

No Enlightenment

FUJIFILM X-Pro2 (35mm, f/4, 1/1800 sec, ISO200) It’s not that I haven’t been here before. I was in New Delhi many times but I still managed to put two premieres into this visit. I already visited Humayun’s Tomb and the Red Fort but this time...
