Three weeks ago, I sat on a plane for 12 hours straight, watched 3 movies and 6 TV shows front-to-back, landed in a +7h timezone, sat through a 3h train ride on a train going 300km/h before arriving at the destination, 9’455km [...]

Tsukiji Market

So I was scrolling through the camera roll on my phone and found this gem — a shot of the Tsukiji Fish Market in Tokyo. Unfortunately, the market was about to close but I still very much like this photo.

Exploring Japan: Tokyo and Mt. Fuji

If you haven’t read the first part, Exploring Japan: Kyoto, Nara & Osaka, make sure to read that first. After we’ve spent the first week in-and-around Kyoto, it was time for us travel back to Tokyo, the capital of Japan. With a city as big as Tokyo, there’s a lot to see. Sadly we weren’t ably to see everything, [...]

So here we go, this was my year 2013. Events (Chronological Order) For a two-week holiday, we went to Tenerife [...]

Versam Adventure

On Sunday, some of my friends and I drove to Versam in canton Graubünden to take some photos of the Rhine and the nature surrounding that area. It was bitter cold, the sky was clear blue and the light was beautiful. Winter days should always be like that. We were walking along a hiking trail when we decided to take photos on the riverbed.

While on our graduation vacation, we came across this lonely Basketball court. It is enclosed by fences and was never used during our one-week stay. It was way too hot to play, anyway.

Over the Shoulder

This weekend, I went out with a friend to take some photos and to test out my new Fujifilm X-E1 with the 35mm ƒ1.4 lens. Even though the weather was miserable and not very inspiring, I’m still quite satisfied with the results and I’m sure there will be many more opportunities to show off what the X-E1 can do.

Silhouette of a Giant.

This is a long exposure shot of the Matterhorn at night.

Ever since I’ve started getting into photography, I’ve used Aperture 3 to edit and manage my photos. This is the first photo I edited in Lightroom 4 and I must say I’m very happy how the photo turned out.

Over the course of two weeks, during my Christmas vacation, I’ve taken approximately 960 photos of the remarkable vegetation, abstract rock structures, animal parks and beautiful coasts all around Tenerife on the Canary Islands. Although most of my shots are memories of family and friends, there are some photos I’m quite proud [...]
