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...

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...

Do Not Feed Birds

FUJIFILM X-T1 (13.2mm, f/9, 1/400 sec, ISO200) The pier in Pismo Beach is one of my favourites. Why? Because it is still nothing but a pier. If you ever visited the piers in Santa Monica, Santa Barbara or Pier 39 in San Francisco you know...

Small Is Beautiful

FUJIFILM X-T1 (200mm, f/4.8, 1/1000 sec, ISO200) There is some real beauty in small things. As I’m growing older that’s especially true for camera equipment. Of course I’m still not ready to dumb my camera gear and shoot everything with my iPhone but I’m also not willing...

Why Fuji? Which Fuji? What Lenses?

FUJIFILM X-T1 (35.8mm, f/10, 1/3 sec, ISO200) Since I switched to digital in 2002 I shot Nikon, Canon and Sony. In 2011 I bought a Fuji X100. This year I finally sold my last pieces of “non-Fuji” photo gear. Here I try to explain what happened and...

Broccoli Breakfast

FUJIFILM X-T1 (14mm, f/3.2, 1/80 sec, ISO320) Mong Kok in Hongkong. 130.000 people per square km. In case you have no idea about the metric system: in the same area in the USA there are just 33. Or in other words it’s packed. But there was still...

Iridient X-Transformer 1.0 beta 1 Tested

The Bridge

FUJIFILM X-T1 (81.9mm, f/9, 1/240 sec, ISO200) The USA has breathtaking landscapes and two iconic man made objects. The Statue of Liberty and The Golden Gate Bridge. Everybody in the world knows those signs of the new world. Even though I travel a lot I still...
