Fuji x100f, 35mm, f/8, 1/55s, ISO 3200
A very appetising Gamla Stan café with fresh orange juice as a speciality. I was sorely tempted, but it was one of my fasting days. Maybe next time!

I only stayed a couple of days in Warsaw on my one but last European trip, and most of that time was spent in the decidedly un-photogenic confines of a conference center. But I have a business breakfast one morning and decided to walk there which gave me the opportunity for a few interesting shots. Arches are awesome, no matter how you slice them.

This is a style of black & white photo that I love (backlit character in a paved street) but I need to practice to get better. I didn’t know really what I was doing and though I managed an exposure balance that perhaps couldn’t have been much better, I still feel I could improve on it. Still, I like the shot, again straight out of the X100S’ black & white pre-sets.
No Time for Shopping

If you follow this blog regularly, you probably know that I enjoy this kind of street shot with one person walking parallel to the plane of the shot. In fact I probably abuse these kinds of shots, so recently I’ve tried to engineer a bit more relevance between the walking figure and the background. I think I may have succeeded with this shot of Old Town Warsaw.
Banishment, Polish Style
Canon A2, 50mm, f/4, 1/40s, ISO 125
Walking around Warsaw’s Old Town I tried to capture some interesting street scenes. Of course, the contrast between the religious statue on the side of one of the many churches and the urban style clothing of the man in front caught my eye… Shot on Ilford FP4+.
