Still having lots of problems with WordPress 😦 My latest post didn’t show up in subscriber’s Readers, and WP Helpdesk aren’t able to help. Boooh. (If you read this, please check out the post from last week as well!)

Anyway, it’s been a lovely sunny weekend here in Amsterdam ❤ I took these pictures with my iPhone

Aren’t these tilted trees just so beautiful?

Love autumn leaves! So colorful and perfect..

This changing season ~ Photos made with my Fuji X-T2 and a Pentax-a 50mm lens I found in my parent’s storage, it’s from the late 80’s I think. It’s a very nice and compact little lens; it’s built in metal but only weights 145 grams. I love the bubbly bokeh when shot wide at f2 🙂

Happy Easter everyone!

My beloved Fuji X-T1 can only do double exposures, not multiple as some other cameras can (up to 10, I think?). My workaround was to take several double exposures and then merge them in a software. It was the first time I’ve tried it, but certainly not the last. So much fun to discover and play around with new techniques 🙂 If anyone has any advice on how to take/make ME’s, please share!

(i) Multiple exposure

(ii) Double exposure (in camera)

It’s cold here in Amsterdam! People (and some birds, see below) are ice skating on the canals (link) 🙂

Ice skating for the first time

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-

Week 42! Autumn is definitely here… 5 pics:

(i) Composition by mother nature

(ii) Soaking up as much light as possible

(iii) Last bee of this year?

(iv) Unedited flower shot

(v) Same shot – Heavily edited version; fun, but not my style


statistics

Stat 1- Every two days, there are more pictures being taken than in the whole history of film photography.

Stat 2- There are more pictures being taken by iPhone than any other camera (~65%).

Stat 3- Before this weekend is over, there will be more photographs than bricks in the world. (Bricks!)

Mind-blowing, right?

It makes me wonder, is there any point in taking photographs anymore, or has everything been done already?

Here are two pictures I’ve taken with my iPhone. I like both of them, even if they’re not particularly interesting or unique in any way. So is it okay to share them, or have we reached a point where we’ve had enough?

(1) The Hirschgebouw on Leidseplein, Amsterdam, The Netherlands

(2) Autumn colours in Stadsparken, Jönköping, Sweden

When the birds don’t cooperate it’s nice to have the macro lens in the camera bag, so you don’t have to come home empty handed 😉
