WPC: Wall 2

WPC: Shadowed 4

Really, I do not remember where this was. Absolutely no idea. That’s the negative point about film photography, it doesn’t provide EXIF-files. … Kann mich beim besten Willen nicht erinnern, wo ich diese Aufnahme gemacht habe. Absolut keine Ahnung. Das ist der Nachteil von analoger Fotografie: es gibt keine EXIF-Daten. (Konica Hexar AF, Ilford DeltaContinue reading “WPC: Shadowed 4”

WPC: Warmth

A late entry for this week’s photo challenge, a homeless’ home in a busy Munich traffic underpass near the main station. The place is inhabited all through the year, probably because it provides a good weather protection and some warmth caused by car exhausts. Due to extremely high costs of living, Munich is the cityContinue reading “WPC: Warmth”

Sommer, Sonne, SeeContinue reading “WPC: Summer Lovin’”

The Originators’ Northern Soul & the Fujifilm X-System

The Originators are a Dutch Northern Soul band from the Amsterdam-Utrecht area. Actually they are one of a very limited number of live-bands working that musical field today. Back in June I had the opportunity to see them live on stage for my very first time and thought it might be a good opportunity toContinue reading “The Originators’ Northern Soul & the Fujifilm X-System”

Fujifilm X-T1, Fujinon XF 56mm and the streets of Berlin (Part 2)

So, here comes part 2 of my adventures in Berlin with the X-T1 and the XF56mmf1.2 R which turned to be my favourite lens during the last weeks. This time I tried to make monochrome magic work for me. For those who care about processing details: all shots were made in colour (mostly with VELVIAContinue reading “Fujifilm X-T1, Fujinon XF 56mm and the streets of Berlin (Part 2)”

Fujifilm X-T1, Fujinon XF 56mm and the streets of Berlin (Part 1)

Recently I went to Berlin for some days and of course my new achievements the FUJIFILM X-T1 and the FUJINON LENS XF56mmF1.2 R had to go with me. I have to admit that it took some time to get used to the X-T1 as the controls are pretty much different to my old friend X-Pro1.Continue reading “Fujifilm X-T1, Fujinon XF 56mm and the streets of Berlin (Part 1)”

WPC: Spring 3

My third contribution to this week’s Photo Challenge, again with my favourite model. Actually I didn’t shoot this in spring but in late summer about three years ago. Some seconds after taking this frame I turned away for an instant to have a look at the result and suddenly heard a loud “splash!”. Now, guessContinue reading “WPC: Spring 3”

WPC: On Top 1

My first entry for this weeks photo challenge. Shot on the location of Zeche Zollverein (Colliery Zollverein) in my former hometown Essen, once the biggest coalmine in the world. I have spent a whole daytime there shooting recently. Without exageration I can say that it was quite a fruitful day. I will post much moreContinue reading “WPC: On Top 1”

WPC: Monument 5

You’ve got it. The Olympic Stadium once more. The last one for this week I promise. Have a closer look if you like. In this landscape of steel and plastic nature reclaimed a small spot for itself. Can you detect it? … Ihr habt’s erfasst. Das Olympiastadion mal wieder. Zum letzten Mal in dieser Woche.Continue reading “WPC: Monument 5”

Schloss Nymphenburg & ZEISS Touit® 2.8/12 mm

Premiere today. The first bilingual post here. And it will become the new standard on this blog. From now on, all posts are going to be written in German and English language, except when there’s very little words that do not need translation. It was about time for a new entry to the Fujifilm XContinue reading “Schloss Nymphenburg & ZEISS Touit® 2.8/12 mm”

WPC: Inside 2

My son has a strong passion for exploring dead spaces he finds everywhere. He definitely does not suffer from claustrophobia. This time it was the cavity underneath the window display in a sporting goods store. The owner of the shop must have been very glad that somebody finally collected all the dirt of an estimatedContinue reading “WPC: Inside 2”

WPC: Perspective 4

It’s been a long time since I posted the last 6×17 panorama. Now here comes another one. Captured on a trip from San Francisco to Los Angeles last year just an hour before sundown. As far as I remember, this must be some miles ahead of Santa Barbara. Fuji GX617, EBC Fujinon SWD 90mm F/5.6
