#64 France and an M9

Back in 2017 we went to Nice, France,  for a weekend. At that time I had an M9 and the two Zeiss lenses I still use today, a Planar 50/2 and a Biogon 35/2,8. It was the first journey abroad with a digital Leica. I still had my X-Pro2 back then, and I was thinking…

#59 Paris – from the X-Pro2

The Metro station As I looked through the more than 300 X-Pro2 pictures that I kept from the trip to Paris, I realized that there were not many that I would say were good pictures. The technical quality was of course good in most of them – the X-Pro2 is a great camera – but…

#58 Paris – from a Leica M6TTL

Champs Elysee Back in 2017 I was  in Paris with my family, for a short vacation.  I had recently bought my first Leica – the M6TTL – and two Zeiss lenses. My main digital camera back then was the Fujifilm X-Pro2. I brought both cameras on the trip to Paris. I shot 3 rolls of…

#56 Vienna and the Leica

A trip to Vienna the months before Christmas is like going to the mother of all Christmas markets. The inner city is full of small stands full of handcrafted items, punch and glühwein. In the evening the whole city is lit up of Christmas decorations, and full of people just enjoying them selves. Leica M240…

#51 Why I want to go back, and why not

The Faroe Islands is a wonderful place – I loved it. Would I like to go back? Yes – and no. Let me explain… Fujifilm X-T2 and 18-55 zoom It is always a special feeling, as you visit a place for the first time. All the first impressions. Was it as you had imagined? Exploring…

#50 One Camera and one Lens?

What would a journey to a place like the Faroe Islands be like – from a photographic point of view – if I had brought only one camera with a 35mm lens? For the journey we made I had packed the following cameras and lenses; Fujifilm X-T2, 10-24 zoom, 18-55 zoom and 55-200 zoom, 50/2…

#49 The Faroe Islands Part 5

Boats – Leica M240 and Zeiss 35/2,8 As you may have read in other posts on this page, I am a fan of certain kind of ships; icebreakers, tow boats and pilot boats. Now – after visiting the Faroes – I have to add fishing boats to that list. In the Faroes there are a…

#48 The Faroe Islands Part 4

In post #47 I wrote about the small villages at the end of the road. Now it is time for the slightly larger villages – or perhaps Towns is the proper word. Torshavn is the biggest town on the islands and also the capital. After you land at the airport on Vágar, it is a…

#47 The Faroe Islands Part 3

Saksun – Fujifilm X-T2 and 10-24 zoom If you find a narrow road on the Faroes, chanses are high you can find a small village at the end of it. Often the road gets smaller and smaller, until you think about if you should have rented a motorcycle instead. That is when you meet a…

#46 The Faroe Islands Part 2

Sheep – Fujifilm X-T2 and 10-24 zoom The landscape of the Faroe Islands is incredible. In the end of August, when we visited the islands, the landscape is green. Really green. Every where you look there is a waterfall – and a sheep. Sheep everywhere you look. Unfortenatly the top of the hills were covered…
