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...

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...

Train Song

FUJIFILM X-Pro2 (16mm, f/7.1, 1/125 sec, ISO250) The last couple of years I visited many exotic places but sometimes I missed to cover what is right in front of me. This is the new main train station in Vienna, Austria. Well not exactly new. The...

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...

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...

Silent Knight

FUJIFILM X-Pro2 (14mm, f/2.8, 1/100 sec, ISO250) Yes I know the title may seem a little stupid but I’m still proud of it. And I’m Austrian so I may do that. In case the intro was not clear enough. I always like to refer to...
