Ok, the title says it all and the city is still Dublin. When I go for a photo walk I normally use my little X100s, that is the camera I always have with me. Although it took a little while to get use to it, I was always a 50mm guy, rather than 35mm, but now I love to shoot streets with both focal lengths. What about the 56mm f1.2 lens that I acquired last summer. Well so far I used it for weddings, portraits and product shots, but not during my photo walks. And I love this lens, it's fast, super sharp, still small and doesn't weight a ton. It's probably not people's first choice for street photography, on Fuji's APS-C sensor it translates [...]
Part of my ever growing Streets of Dublin collection. All images were taken in Dublin in the last week or so using my Fuji X100s and Xpro1 cameras. Enjoy!
It's been a while now I published my Dublin streets images on my blog, but now I have a bit more time to make new photos and go through some of the older ones. Dublin is a great place to live, it has all the benefits of a capital city, culture, history, amazing parks and nightlife and it is all within a walking distance. And the people, probably said it before, but the Irish are the friendliest people ever. So all in all Dublin is great craic.
These images were all made in Dublin city centre and were taken with Fuji X cameras.
Last weekend we visited the Dublin Coffee & Tea Festival in the RDS Dublin where we had a chance to meet many of the major players of the irish coffee and tea industry. It was a heaven for coffee lovers and even though I normally drink a lot of coffee I managed exceed my daily caffeine intake. Beside the plenty of interesting workshops the Irish Brewing, Barista and Latte Art competitions took place with Ireland finest baristas on the stage.
I used my little X100s and the new X-T1 with the 56mm lens to capture some of the vibe of this caffeine fuelled event. Enjoy.
I said it in my previous posts what an amazing city Tokyo is and just how easy to fall in love with it. It's been almost two months now, but my wife Anita and I keep talk about it every day. Non of our other destinations have left such a huge impact on us in the past and we can't really explain why, something clicked between us and the city, the culture and the people in it. I never really understood why people are going back to the same country or city every now and then, but it might just happened to us as well, we can't wait to get back to Japan and explore more of it.
Arigatou gozaimasu Tokyo!
All images were taken [...]
Tokyo is amazing, always busy and there are lots of things to see. The best way to get around is to use one of its many subway lines. It looks a bit chaotic at the first time, thousands of people rushing to every directions and lots of lines are criss-crossing each other, but it makes sense, everything is well organised and works like a swiss (or japanese) clock. And if you are not in a hurry it's worth to slow down and look around while millions of commuters pass by.
All photos were taken with the Fuji X-T1 and the X100s. Enjoy!
I haven't blogged for a while now, but loads of things happened in the last couple of months. Couple of photo shoots, weddings, holiday, new website and a new camera... What, new camera? Oh, yeah. I finally said good bye to my Canon kit and got an X-T1 with a 56mm lens to accompany my X-Pro1 and X100s. Wasn't an easy decision, but time will tell. So far I'm loving it, but because I have plenty of editing to do, I haven't spent huge amount of time with it.
My lovely wife and I spent a week in Tokyo in the middle of July and it was amazing. It wasn't hard to fall in love with the city and the people in it. The following [...]
