Frankfurt in January

It was cold in Janu­ary, but this did not stop us from walk­ing through this beau­ti­ful city with so many nice places and inspir­ing per­spect­ives … depend­ing on where you go and what you (want to) see. This time I used two digit­al cam­er­as. Num­ber one was a Ricoh GR II with its mar­velous 2.8/28mm…… Con­tin­ue read­ing Frank­furt in January

The Beauty and the Beast III

From time to time I take a pic­ture show­ing two cam­er­as side by side where I think it’s worth it. The first and the second image can be found here, show­ing two Can­on bod­ies (a Can­on EOS 3 vis-a-vis a Can­on EOS 5D) and two Con­tax bod­ies (a Con­tax Aria vis-a-vis a Con­tax AX).

Olympus OM-4Ti and Ricoh GR II

After hav­ing back the Olym­pus OM-4Ti from repair, I took it on a short trip to Frank­furt. Equipped with a Zuiko Auto‑T 2.8/100mm and loaded with an Agfa Vista 200, I was keen to see, if the prob­lem has been cured at the OM-Dok­t­or in Ham­burg.   … and here the right lens.   We…… Con­tin­ue read­ing Olym­pus OM-4Ti and Ricoh GR II

El norte de España

In spring 2016 I trav­elled to North­ern Spain, vis­it­ing the Basque Coun­try, Can­tab­ria, Aragon and Castile and Leon. Fly­ing to Bil­bao and head­ing to our first loc­a­tion in San Sebasti­an, we made a stop­over in Zumaia. The little town is nice … but more fam­ous is its rock form­a­tion — The Fly­sch. The land­scape is…… Con­tin­ue read­ing El norte de España
