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.

Luxembourg city, a winter’s tale – Gallery

Each season in Luxembourg city offers unique photo opportunities, and so the winter.

I took my Leica SL with me and I walked around to capture the fairy tale atmosphere you can breath along the streets.

Enjoy!

Thanks for reading! If you want a print out of any of the pictures above, please get in contact with me.

Let it snow, Luxembourg!

The first snow arrived tonight in Luxembourg and this morning everything was covered by a soft white layer.  I always have my camera with me and I could not resist while driving to the office: I want to capture it!

Of course, the trees and the rooftops are scenic, but I wanted to find something different. I was attracted by an old-fashioned roulotte, selling Christmas trees, not so far from where I live.

The minivan was totally immersed in this white scenario and just in front of it, there were suspended small lights that make the whole scenario cosier.

I also “used” a girl with an umbrella just crossing by, to add some life and dynamics, but keeping her out of focus.

Pressed by the time, I just took 5 minutes, a quick and dirty shooting, but I’m happy I captured the very first snow in Luxembourg for this winter.

Looking forward to taking more pictures in the city, hoping that it will continue to snow.
