No Fairytale in Mumbai

FUJIFILM X-Pro2 (23mm, f/5.6, 1/210 sec, ISO200) Last time in Mumbai this was the view from my hotel room: A slum. Not the first time but this one was different. Mumbai is one of the biggest cities in the world with a population of more...

Yakitori Time

FUJIFILM X-Pro2 (23mm, f/2, 1/60 sec, ISO1250) In May I spent a week in Japan. Of course I ate only Sushi and Ramen but at the end of my trip I had to eat something else. Yakitori Time! Yakitori, the ultimate fast food. Japanese skewered...

Hair

FUJIFILM X-Pro2 (56mm, f/2, 1/400 sec, ISO1250) The last two months I didn’t take many pictures but than I once occasion came up. A dog show. When I was a boy I always wanted to have a dog. But I didn’t get one. I got...

Do It!

In good light even the ordinary looks special. Like this street scene on a sunny evening in Seoul, Korea. Of course I had to take pictures. People passing by on their way back home. The sun lit yellow brick building with the orange advertising...

Purple Pain

FUJIFILM X-Pro2 (35mm, f/4.5, 1/1400 sec, ISO200) When I finally reached the “right” palace in Seoul the light was perfect but the doors closed. Not the only bad surprise that evening. But I was lucky. The place in front of the palace was full of...

The Wrong Palace

FUJIFILM X-Pro2 (14mm, f/8, 1/340 sec, ISO200) An early evening in Seoul, Korea. I left my hotel to visit a palace but ended up in a different one. It was still great! What happened? I admit that I should have studied the map more carefully....

Lipstick Sunset

FUJIFILM X-Pro2 (200mm, f/9, 1/1800 sec, ISO200) The end of summer is near. It was hot and sunny but something was missing – California. The last four years we always traveled to the South West of the USA but not this year. As a consequence...

California Girls

FUJIFILM X-T1 (46.3mm, f/8, 1/600 sec, ISO200) California is about beaches. This is one our favourite. Carpinteria State Beach, about 10 miles east of Santa Barbara. Less fancy and busy than Santa Barbara. In one word: prefect. During our visit visit in the USA we...

Something Completely Different

FUJIFILM X-Pro2 (13.2mm, f/8, 1/500 sec, ISO500) We were still in Santa Barbara when it was time for lunch. I chance to break out of our burger routine. I love to travel in the USA. It is just great except for two things: food and...

Early Morning Pier

When in Santa Barbara the first way always leads to the pier. This is a busy except if you go there in the morning. We have been here many times before but we never had the pier for ourselves. To be honest it felt...
