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”

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”

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”

Back from the USSR

My dearly beloved X-Pro1 asked for a little attention so I decided to treat her a nice vintage portrait lens, the Zenit Helios-44M. Those lenses were produced in old Soviet Russia from 1958 to the early 1990s and are best known for their very special bokeh and excellent portrait skills. Unsurprisingly the lens comes inContinue reading “Back from the USSR”

The blue jacket

Shot on the Odeonsplatz, Munich on a rainy day last January. I am still pretty much impressed about the colours and the sharpness the X-Pro1 delivers. The picture is unedited (except watermarking). Fujifilm X-Pro1, Fujinon XF 35mm F1.4 R @ F2.8, 1/60 sec., ISO 800.

WPC: Object 2

Object… of desire. When I saw this most beautiful 1950s Ferrari at a gas station I just couldn’t resist takin’ a few snapshots. I was in a hurry, so no time for shooting some frames of the front. My knowledge about Ferraris is very limited, but after some searching I’d say this is a 750Continue reading “WPC: Object 2”

London seen through the FUJINON XC 4.5-6.7/50-230mm OIS

Happy new year and hello again everybody. As you may have noticed I took a longer break of two months from blogging. Well, I’m back and I promise to post regularly again in the future. What happened in the meantime? I finally fulfilled one of my dreams and got myself a fabulous Fujifilm X-PRO1 togetherContinue reading “London seen through the FUJINON XC 4.5-6.7/50-230mm OIS”
