#540. Your experience may vary

  Much of DS’ content this past year has been gear-related; lens comparisons, Zeiss’ Otii, Sony cameras v everything else, different software comparisons and despite our best intentions and efforts, little of it really conclusive. Personal preference remains the real test.         Trawling my usual list of

#538. Berlin – On the Streets. Bilder ohne Worte.

As the title reads, here are just a bunch of photographs from Berlin, with little else in the way of discussion : My short week-end there saw a mixed bag of weather conditions that gave us all sorts of lighting conditions, which is great for photography. Mostly, though, is was

#533. Japan – on the streets

A final Japan post to bring together a collection of black and white images – OOC JPGs using Fuji’s Acros emulation – shot on the streets of Tokyo, Nagoya, Kyoto and Osaka. Mainly shot with the X-Pro2 and either 23mm f1.4 or 35mm f1.4.

#531. Osaka colour

Osaka. Huge industrial city. Busy.   Another view of modern Japan, in that it’s a city of contrasts; brutally, digitally modern alongside glimpses of a different life, more cultured and ordered. Much as it’s been for centuries.   Tech note; all images shot with the Fuji X-Pro2 and either Fuji’s

#528. Kyoto colour

#527. Nagoya colour

Last week Tokyo. This week, Nagoya.   Continuing the theme started in the capital – rich Fuji-style chroma colour.   There’ll be more images from Kyoto and Osaka shortly, perhaps a collection of faces collected from our tour across the country. In the meantime, here’s Nagoya.

#525. Tokyo colour

  Hotel-bound. Crocked.   I’m not feeling too sharp today, so I’m contenting myself with a feet-up (literally) day off, some editing and watching South Africa and Australia battle it out in Perth, via Cricinfo’s ball-by-ball coverage.         I’ve been shooting lots of Tokyo-ites in Fuji’s black
