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….
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.

I spent a lot of time recently trying to figure out whether to buy the X-Pro 1 or the M6. As you can see I opted for the X-Pro 1 (with the excellent Fujinon 35mm f1.4 lens) which gives me a little more creative leeway by using the option of converting the digital files to my favourite film type with VSCO.
A good friend and colleague retired last week. Although we didn’t always see eye to eye, he will be remembered as one of the last pioneers, never accepting the boundaries we so often struggle to overcome.
