Unsuitable Art

FUJIFILM X-Pro2 (23mm, f/3.6, 1/1900 sec, ISO200) Another museum blogpost. Before we move on to the giant trees of the Sequoia NP there is more art – some of it unsuitable. You have been warned. I love the USA or to be more precise I...

So Quiet in Here

FUJIFILM X-Pro2 (14mm, f/8, 1/140 sec, ISO200) This blog post has nothing to do with the song of Van Morrison but it still fits perfectly or better literally. Museum are not the busiest places in the world. Except of course if they have paintings of Da Vinci...

Survivors

FUJIFILM X-Pro2 (14mm, f/8, 1/350 sec, ISO200) We still had some time to kill before the museum of contemporary art opened so we visited the tarpit museum next door. A very smart move to get more visitors. It’s a very small museum but its size...

House on the Hill

FUJIFILM X-Pro2 (14mm, f/5.6, 1/640 sec, ISO200) Museums are always a great place to visit. Some are famous for their exhibitions, some for the architecture but the special thing about the Getty Center is its location. It’s located on the top of a hill. The car park...

The Good, the Bad and the Ugly

FUJIFILM X-T1 (25.4mm, f/8, 1/7 sec, ISO200) I know sometimes I use too many words in my blog post. But not this time! In this article I will keep it short. I will describe the good, the bad and the ugly of the primes  from...

Swimming in a Fishbowl

FUJIFILM X-Pro2 (14mm, f/2.8, 1/200 sec, ISO2500) Before I went to Japan for the first time it was clear to me that I had to come here. The Kaiyukan, the Aquarium in Osaka, one of the biggest Aquariums in the world. I love aquariums but the real...

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...

Fuji XF 23/1.4 R or XF 23/2 WR?

FUJIFILM X-T1 (44.4mm, f/8, 1/2 sec, ISO200) Recently Fuji started to update its lens line and added slower versions of their 35mm and 23mm lenses. But why should you get one of those over the faster version? It depends – here is a comparison of the...

Osaka Sunset

FUJIFILM X-Pro2 (23mm, f/5.6, 1/850 sec, ISO200) Expect the unexpected. Always! When I flew to Japan for the first time this September the weather forecast was so poor that decided to spend most of the time on my arrival day indoors. My plane landed in the morning...

Lost In Translation

FUJIFILM X-Pro2 (23mm, f/2, 1/2400 sec, ISO200) I always wanted to use the title of one of my favorite movies for a blog post but of course I needed to visit Japan first. Now I did so finally I can. What a trip! This was...
