Un giro tra le luci di Natale in Lussemburgo

Passeggiare di sera a Dicembre, in Lussemburgo, con il freddo che sferza le mani e la faccia, non è sicuramente cosa semplice ma, con una Leica SL in borsa, è sicuramente una buona occasione per provare a catturare l’atmosfera natalizia fatta di luci, suoni e baite in legno dei caratteristici mercatini di Natale. Ed ecco qui qualche scatto fatto con l’ottimo Leica Vario-Elmarit-SL 24–90 f/2.8–4 ASPH, una lente importante per dimensioni, ma dalla qualità decisamente alta, anche in condizioni di […]

Fun at Madame Tussauds in London, with a Leica Q

White Luxembourg – Series of 15 streets photos

Hello there, how much do you like walking on a cold, wet, soft snow?

The gold of Puglia: inside the extra virgin olive oil factory – Reportage with my Leica SL

Hello folks, have you ever wondered how a little tiny fruit can produce one of the tastiest and used ingredients ever?

And I guess that most of you, have only bought it from […]
