samyang af35 f2.8

It’s been a while since i wrote something here, mostly because i was busy doing stuff other than taking photos. When i had the time to take photos, however, i took them most of the time using the samyang af35. I got this lens because […]

from fuji x to sony e

if you had told me that i would swap my entire fuji gear for sony alpha a year ago, i probably would have deemed you insane. however, recent events in my life gave me the opportunity to swap my gear for a very good deal. […]

winter is … well, its already here.

Some things are quite rare when living near lake constance, and one of the rarest things might be a day without fog but snow. Now, if there is snow on the ground and you are able to see more than your hands in front of […]

autumn impressions
