It’s the End of the World as We Know it

FUJIFILM X-Pro2 (14mm, f/7.1, 1/200 sec, ISO200) Cherry blossom season in Seoul, Korea. No I haven’t traveled there recently. I took those images a year ago when life was still normal. Now everything has changed. Because of a virus. Covid19 better known by its street...

Holidaying with X-Pro3.

Selfie with this beauty. It’s coming to the end 2019; and it’s our turn for a family holiday. For all my trips, packing camera gears is equally important as packing all the usual travel essential. For this 11 days family trip my set is the new...

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...

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...

Bike In Head

FUJIFILM X-Pro2 (90mm, f/4, 1/480 sec, ISO200) This is not about cameras and not about lenses. Well, almost. To camera enthusiasts it’s easy to ignore that there are so many other great ways to spend money. I’m not talking about traveling this time though I...

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....

Seoul Playful with X-Series.

As mention in my earlier blog; I brought a total of 3 camera system for my South Korea holiday. Some may think its mad. At times I think its mad too. But when I am presented with the beauty of South Korean cityscape and landscape; I am...

Seoul – Osaka – Tokyo

FUJIFILM X-Pro2 (14mm, f/8, 1/160 sec, ISO200) What a trip! Korea and Japan. Here is a first look. Three images from Seoul, three from Osaka and three pictures taken in Tokyo. Last year I visited Japan for the very first time. I had less than a...
