Snowy Niseko/Japan

Finally I think I figured how to best present photos on the web and sorry for all the huge files I posted prior to this. I guess it was a bit of a pain to load them. Let's see how this works. So feedback and any tips are welcome. Once a year I try to hit Japan in winter with my two...

Wandering Laos with X-T1

With Laos we managed to visit the last remaining country to see in Indochina. All the countries in this corner are just exciting from any perspective be it culture, history, architecture or landscape. Should you consider a trip to Asia and you are unsure which countries to cover put Myanmar on top of your list. It's an amazing country...

Portugal Part III: Coimbra, Tomar, Algarve

We've reached the final phase of our Portugal journey. As in previous posts already mentioned I really enjoy the 10-24 lens but admit even with the X-T1 it's on the heavier and bulkier side  (still would love to get the 50-140mm even bigger and heavier). I had recently purchased a backpack (Kata DR-467) and a Peak Design Clip Pro (which...

Portugal Part II – Sintra, Batalha, Porto

No worries I'm not gonna post all the approx 1000 photos, I decided to combine the places else I'd end up with 8 parts *phew* no that's not gonna work. I think one thing I struggle with to select and I also seem to have a different taste than others or maybe the majority.I also noticed I may be...

Portugal Part 1 – Lisboa

Oh dear oh dear it's been a long time I worked here.Recently I had less outings with the Fuji but let's skip the excuses for not having posted for a long time and let's catch up some of the activities I had.We had spent summer 2014 in Portugal (after we had been to Germany as usual). I had rented...

Kunstmuseum Bonn / Germany (Fuji XT1 + 10-24mm)

Been again in Bonn but this time also in Portugal but that's another post. I went to the Kunstmuseum (Art Museum) in Bonn, Germany. Should you have a chance to be in Bonn then worth visiting. They always have good  exhibitions. This time I specifically looked for geometry, lines, forms and light. Throughout the entire trip I used the...

Impressions of an Exhibition – Sebastião Salgado

The National Museum of Singapore currently hosts an exhibition of Sebastião Salgado - Genesis. Really great shots, don't miss it when it hits your town. I would have liked to see the exif data but that was not available. I really enjoyed to follow his travels and the places he visited, the people he met and all the unique opportunities he...

Can’t stop having fun – XT1 + 10-24mm

So we had to check out a shop at Orchard Road the main shopping road in Singapore. I grabbed my Fuji XT1 and thought may be I can catch some good shots. Since I had put the 10-24mm lens on it I haven't taken it off. But one think I have to admit is I feel the weight much more when...

More Fun with 10-24mm – Closed Station Singapore Part 1

It's a pity I currently don't have much time to play with this great lens. I figured there are railway stations in Singapore - 3. One just a short walk from my home so last Sunday I decided to have a walk. As usual I can't get up and ready so by the time it was already 9am and...

Europe Part 3- Berlin

Should you have been to Berlin 10-15 years ago and would it it visit now you will notice big changes. Berlin really developed to a nice city which I wouldn't mind to live in. Many cultural offers, art, music, food. It used to be an affordable city despite it is one of the bigger cities in Germany like Munich...
