White Luxembourg – Series of 15 streets photos

Hello there,
how much do you like walking on a cold, wet, soft snow?
Well, I have to admit, I’not a fan of it, I’d rather prefer the deep blue colour of a wavy sea, but it’s winter time, and I live in Luxembourg. Nothing more to add… :-p

Ok, said that, a city covered by snow it surely offers great photo opportunities, and my challenge was to capture the mood of Luxembourg trying to add the human being element as much as possible and to avoid postcard shots we’ve already seen thousand times here around.

Mmh, doesn’t mean that I did not take any landscapes pictures, but just a few… c’mon, a beauty landscape always deserves to be framed.

My gears

For this assignment, I had the opportunity to fully try my brand new Leica Vario-Elmarit-SL 24-90/f2.8-4 ASPH , a beast of a lens that performs very well an I may say it is not that heavy as I was expecting.

I bought this lens (always from Newoldcamera in Milano) just to add an automatic and versatile zoom lens to my equipment, even though I always prefer prime lenses and manual focus.

But, for special assignments or when travelling, there may be cases when I don’t want to change lenses and I need a fast focus. So now I’ve covered also this need.

Besides that, of course, I have used my great Leica SL and in some cases, the Summicron M 50mm f2. I’m incredibly happy with this camera, totally satisfied with the quality and usability.

Street life in Ginza, 8 pictures from the famous fashion district of Tokyo, Japan

Bonjour my friends,
this week I bring you back to Japan, precisely to one of the most crowded and vibrant cities in the world, heaven for street photographers: Tokyo

The Japanese capital is a unique place where each district is completely different from the others, from the traditional Asakusa to the modern and crazy Akihabara, without forgetting Shibuya, Odaiba, Roppongi and so on.

Luckily, I had the chance to visit all of them and, I can tell you, I would love to go back again and again and again, as there is always something new happening in these crowded and exciting streets.

Ginza, the fashion district

Today I want to bring you to the entertainment district, featuring numerous department stores, boutiques, art galleries, restaurants, nightclubs and cafes, and where you find the most expensive real estate in Japan: Ginza.

This is the place where all the main fashion brands show their beauty and richness by installing enormous stores and decorating the spaces with the most extravagant architectures and billboards.

The central Chuo Dori street, the vibrant heart of the district, gives you a lot of nice street photography opportunities, is just difficult to decide where to focus your attention.
