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...

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...

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...

Last Day On The Beach

FUJIFILM X-Pro2 (55mm, f/9, 1/850 sec, ISO200) The last day on the beach always feels sad. Simply because I know that it will take some time until I will stand on a beach again. I’m from Austria. It’s a beautiful place and we got almost...
