The Winter Olympics are on! But here in Amsterdam I’ve already found the first signs of “spring” 🙂

…And sometimes things are exactly what they seem – uncomplicated and beautiful in its simplicity 🙂 Have a nice Sunday everyone!

Things aren’t always what they seem –

“Mountains”

“Flowers”

“Clouds”

Week one in the new year! It’s been raining and storming here in Amsterdam this week, not the best conditions for my new (not weather-sealed) lens but here are some shots taken from under my umbrella-

Happy New Year!

I’m a day late for week 52’s post, but here it is anyway – New shots taken with Fuji 60 mm a few days ago:

Last week of December, I can’t believe these have managed to survive this long!

A cat in the neighborhood. No problem for this lens to focus through the branches!

Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas!

Week 50, and I got a new lens! Unfortunately not the one I’ve waited a year for Fujifilm to release (80 mm, 1:1), but I got a 60 mm (1:2) macro instead. A bit disappointing, but one of the main reasons why I switched from Canon to Fuji was because of the lightweight camera and lenses, and the new 80 mm is a brick – big and bulky 750 g compared to the small and compact 60 mm weighting only 215 g. And € 1,300 vs € 500. But there’s no doubt at all that the 80 mm is the superior lens of the two, and I look forward to see more pictures from those who got it!

So, I ended up with a lens I could’ve gotten a year ago… But no reason to cry over spilled milk! Here are the first test shots I’ve taken, I haven’t had time to walk in the forest this week so it’s one picture of planted heather outside my house and another one of my cat Tonje ❤
