Street photo walk in Luxembourg city with the new iPhone 8 Plus: a gorgeous camera that will surprise you!

Yes, I’ve bought the brand new iPhone 8Plus, but no, it wasn’t for a caprice, instead, I took the opportunity as my 6s went broken just a few days before… (good excuse, isn’t?) Anyway, I had few doubts before buying, because of the expensive price and the big size, but now, after a couple of days of usage, I don’t regret at all: the iPhone 8 Plus is more than just a phone, is a powerful tablet and a high […]

One night in Osaka, Japan – 20 street photos

After a long journey of more than 20 hours, my first contact with Japan has been Osaka, catapulted into the vibrant nightlife of a Japanese futuristic city. How could I go to sleep while having plenty of street photo opportunities right down the hotel? So let’s have a walk… with a Fujifilm X-T1 and the great lens XF 18-55 mm f2.8-4 LM OIS – 1 – – 2 – – 3 – – 4 – – 5 – – 6 – – […]

I traded my Leica lens for another…Leica lens

A new lens is in my bag as for today, but this time, for the sake of my bank account, I’ve not spent any cents. Yeah, it is possible, even for a Leica lens. How can? Easy peasy, I traded one of my Leica lenses for another…Leica lens. An M for an R. Bad or good deal? mmh, to me, for now, very good, but will see in the future… Anyhow, one of my trusted shops here in Luxembourg, Fototrade, showed […]

My new old lens, promising a special bokeh: the Meyer-Optik Gorlitz Oreston 50mm f1.8 (test image gallery)

You know, I have a true passion for old vintage lenses and one of the reasons why I recently switched to the Leica SL is because this camera allows me to use almost any existing lens from the past. I own already several vintage lenses, but not only for collection purpose. Anytime I prepare my bag for a trip around the world, I open my box and I chose one or two vintage lens to carry with me. The advantage of a […]

In this post, I show you my best 15 photos I have taken with my Leica SL 15 Photos of the Mezquita de Cordoba – 1 – – 2 – – 3 – – 4 – – 5 – – 6 – – 7 – – 8 […]

Discorvering Cordova, photos and useful tips – Andalusia on the road

The third stop of my trip on the road to Andalusia is the historic city of Cordova, serenely lying along the Guadalquivir river and at the foot of the Sierra Morena. In contrast to the most dynamic Granada and Seville, Cordoba is in fact very quiet. Life around the majestic Mezquita and in the alleys of the Jewish quarter of Juderia, named World Heritage by Unesco, runs at a mild and quiet pace. Cordova in one day? Yes, the city of […]

20 street photos of the lovely Hoi An, Vietnam

Today I take you outside for a pleasant walk through the elegant and colorful streets of Hoi An, Vietnam. Declared UNESCO World Heritage Site as a well preserved southeastern commercial port, this small city has been subjected to influences by foreign settlers such as Portuguese, Dutch, Indian, Chinese, and Japanese. In fact, the delightful historical center, in addition to having a strong Vietnamese atmosphere, shows a unique fusion of local tradition and foreign influence. Chilling around with a Leica M […]

3 good places where to eat in Granada, Andalusia

After exploring Granada, it is time now to give you some little hints on where to satisfy your appetite. This Andalusian city offers a lot and it is, therefore, difficult to choose from the many bars and restaurants. Calle Elvira is certainly the most popular street for a tapas and cervezas, but to me, I liked the atmosphere in the most characteristic Albaicin neighbourhood and with fewer tourist venues. In this post I suggest three places I have personally experienced and […]

25 photos and stories from The Color Run. And why a photographer should get dirty…

I have just come back from the front line of a very special “war”, from where I came out dirty, destroyed, happy and colorful. I photographed “The Color Run” in Echternach, Luxembourg, an event now widespread around the world and inspired by the famous Indian Holi Festival, but applied to the race. The main theme of the event is, therefore, the colors that are thrown on runners when they pass through dedicated and monochrome spots. Obviously, such an event can gift […]

25 photos that brings you inside the stunning Alhambra in Granada

After telling you about my experience in Granada, today I bring you into an authentic wonder of architecture and history, declared Unesco’s Cultural Heritage of Humanity in 1984: the Alhambra. (I will not write here the history of this place as you can easily read it on Wikipedia.) Instead, I want to describe it through the photos I took with my Leica SL and consequently through the emotions I felt, the environments, atmospheres, and details that struck me most. Most of […]
