Winter landscape

F5 film 4, originally uploaded by gugs.

This is a peaceful winter landscape shot in Damme, Belgium with the F5 film camera (lens was 35-70 2.8), film was Fuji Sensia Slide, scanned with a Nikon Coolscan V. No processing done on the picture. I picked that one among many others shot the same day. This was frost, not really snow, and it just lasted for 2 days.

I liked the light in the old Solvay library in Brussels... I deliberately selected ISO3200 on my camera to get a grainy old-fashioned look to this picture. BW mode out of camera, no post-processing done. Lens was Tamron 17-50 2.8 on the Nikon D200.

Paris Opera

Paris-01, originally uploaded by gugs.

a statue on top of the Opera building in Paris. I liked the special color... this was at the end of the day, with a warm sunlight. Picture taken with the D200 and the 18-200VR lens. There is quite some vignetting but I didn't process to remove it... I don't find it too disturbing in this case.

Bruges reflection

EUR_2361bw, originally uploaded by gugs.

This is a picture taken at night in a deserted city... Bruges in Belgium, one of the most beautiful cities in Europe... it was raining and I liked the reflections on the cobblestones. Black and white also adds a bit to the sadness of the weather. Shot with the Nikon D200.

Hong Kong acrobat

Hong Kong 040, originally uploaded by gugs.

a strange experience... I was just walking around in Hong Kong Central, on my way to the escalator and I spotted that guy on top of a double deck bus (very high). I could just move my camera (D200+70-200VR) and take a snapshot. The guy looked at me and smiled and the bus disappeared just a few seconds later. I don't know what happened to that guy and how he could get there in the first place...
