vlissingen, the netherlands, 2019
burano, italy, 2017
this was taken with my sony a7 and the excellent samyang 35mm f2.8 pancake lens that i received (i.e. bought) right on time before our holiday in venice. it is a very light and small lens, the auto focus is fast and reliable so it’s quite a different lens than the notoriously slow and sometimes “focusing where no lens focused before” sony 50mm f1.8 that i nevertheless also like a lot. i have no complaints whatsoever regarding the samyang 35mm… i think i could probably find some minor quibbles if i scrutinised the lens more thoroughly but i’m not in the mood because i really like using it ;-)
since this is the first 35mm prime i’ve really used it came as a little surprise for me that i really like the angle of view of a 35mm lens on full frame. i always was (and still am) a big fan of the panasonc lumix 20mm on my olympus e-p5, though, which comes quite close to the angle of view a full frame 40mm would provide. so maybe it’s actually no surprise at all :)
found in the heart of kreuzberg, berlin. i was really quite blown away by this scenery because it came so unexpectedly.
the most brutal part seems to be over now, but it was really hot here in berlin. this is moabit.
these have been taken from within the train from ancona to porto san giorgio, too.
summer is hitting berlin. this picture was made at the airport in ancona, italy, though. (and it’s 27° celsius of course ;))
serafina and luigi’s awning saved me from dissolving in the heavy rain in porto san giorgio last week. more pictures of that to come ;)
