Hope everything is well with you and that you are ready for what is up ahead.
For this first 2019 post, I want to give you some tips on how to get around in Japan. As always these tips are the ones that worked for me.
Before I start I been thinking that on my previous posts, mainly the ones from Thailand, you don’t want to know what I have done. I started to think of it on what I look for. Not what someone did but how they did it.
It’s been a while since I updated you guys about anything. You know how it goes. Working a bit more than usual, not a lot to share or talk about. But I do, sometimes have a life, and I do like to go on adventures.
As you probably guessed by the title, the island of Madeira was my latest adventure.
I wanted to edit and post process all the photos before I could share with you where to go, where to eat, what to explore, how to get around, but since I arrived in Lisbon, I had no time to focus on the photos. I also don’t want to wait too long so I am taking a few hours to inspire you guys to travel to Madeira.
Over the years i been wasting money trying to find the best gear to make my life more practical when i am traveling. All the way from backpacks, passing through cutlery and finishing up in small card reader/adapters.
On my last trip to Porto Covo, i realized that it is possible to carry very minimal gear and still be able to achieve great results. For this small list i will not include Cameras, Drone and my travel Tripod. I am focusing on the smaller gadgets and it should be no surprise by now that i am carrying at least the Fuji X100T every time i go somewhere new.
You all know I love photographing with the Fuji X100T. I never tried another camera for street photography, besides my old Canon 5D Mark II, and for me, the Fuji it is the best camera for street photography.
Before I give my final thoughts on my trip to Switzerland I been thinking that I am a happy guy and that i do appreciate more and more what i have and what and who makes part of my life. These thoughts came to mind a few minutes ago while i was listening/headbanging to Motorhead's Victory or Die.
If you know anything about me and the photography I like to make, you have noticed that I focused only on street photography during my time in Thailand. Sure, i did a few landscapes but nothing like i usually do.
At first, i thought about going to a few locations for landscapes. My idea was to go to the rice fields during sunset but once i realized that it was going to take more time then i wanted i decided to only do street photography and do landscapes from the places i was. Also, i didn't want to carry around my Canon 5D and all the stuff that comes with it. That is why i decided to take only the Fuji X100T with me for this trip.
