Casting back to the summer holidays of 2019. These were taken on two trips to Porto and to Afife including the surrounding area (even with a day trip to Spain thrown in as well) . Well worth a visit if I may say so…..

If don’t do this everyday then you make mistakes. The girl in the gallery is a young Israeli soldier, I was so nervous that I made a mess of the camera settings and basically forgot everything I know about photography so the shot wasn’t as good as I hoped for.

After a rather difficult period I’m rekindling my love of photography. Returning to visit Dubai has undoubtedly helped, offering me a host of different motifs that I just couldn’t resist. Watch this space for more from this place and elsewhere….
….since I last posted anything. To be honest I’ve been searching (as ever) for a little inspiration for a new project lasting 53 weeks and I can’t seem to settle on that “one” subject. It’s not for the lack of ideas it’s just that that simply I don’t want to confine myself to one type of motive or one medium or one of whatever…..
Therefore the next few posts will be of things that I’ve been shooting over the past three months. While you read these I’ll be racking my brains for that new “one” subject…..
A few years ago after a press conference we held somewhere in Asia, an article was published in one of the local leading newspapers. It was mistakenly accompanied by a picture of me with the title “Dr. Rolf”.
Well I’m here to put the record straight, meet the real Dr. Rolf!
I had another opportunity to shoot Svenja (can I actually say that without getting into trouble?) a couple of weeks ago. Some were taken with the Edge 80 which is a marvelous lens, even if it is a bit of a b*gg#r to focus manually without “Liveview”.
…. I was going to call this week’s post “Little red riding hood”, but she’s not wearing anything red, there’s no hood, there are wolves in Brandenburg but not here, and finally I’m not sure Ulrike would have appreciated the connotations of the fairy tale.
Fuji X-Pro 1
Fujinon 35mm f1.4
Aperture and NIK
VSCO (Fujicolor PRO 400H)
Rolleiflex 3.5 F (Mark III / IV)
Carl Zeiss Planar 3.5f
Kodak Portra 400
…. and practicing. I’ve been wanting one of these for a long time, and when the opportunity arose I snapped it up. The Lensbaby “Edge 80” certainly is very different from anything I’ve ever used before and it should help my diminished creativity for the coming 53 weeks….. (There’s a hint in there somewhere)
Anyway I’d better get practicing…..
