I had this phototrip planned for months with my best friend. We were supposed to go to the "Giele Botter", which is a nature reserve in the south of Luxembourg, to shoot some beautiful beginning of Spring pictures. Alas the weather was against us, so we decided to change our plans and headed for "Fond de Gras" instead. The covered skies and intermittent sleet showers were great to shoot this well-known industry and railway park, really adding to the mood and atmosphere. I had the Fujifilm X-E1 with me, and although I had also packed the XF35mm and XF60mm lenses, the XF18-55mm stayed glued to the body. This little wonder performed admirably well in all situations and was a pleasure to shoot with.
I hope you have as much fun watching the pictures as I had shooting them.
Husband, father, shutterbug, geek, collector, addicted to movies, music and comics, maintaining a keen interest in all things digital at the same time as nurturing a profound respect for beautifully designed and crafted items, Oli is also known to enjoy fine dining and appreciate the occasional uisge beatha. Born in 1979 in Luxembourg, he has always been more or less interested in photography, but his passion really sparked for the first time with the release of the Sony Alpha 100, which replaced the excellent Sony DSC F-717 he previously owned. Getting an iPhone4 a couple of years later and enjoying the possibility to happily snap away without lugging a huge body around definitely sealed the deal. Although his wife wasn’t too pleased at first, subsequent camera purchases were a necessity (Thanks, honey! :-) ).
