Dickens.

Saturday December the 18th my daughter and i visited ”Dickens Festijn” in Deventer. This is a yearly returning event and a lot of spectators from the Netherlands but also surrounding countries like Belgium and Germany visit. Crowded, well yes. 150.000 people over the days you can visit. This meant we had to wait for an hour and a half before we could enter and photography was difficult, everybody wants the prime spot to watch!

Above a series converted to black and white. I used Adobe Camera raw for the processing of the two series. Two days before this event i acquired a Olympus M.Zuiko ED 60mm 2.8 Macro. I read in reviews this lens was also useful as a portrait lens so i only used this one. I immediately fell in love with this lens, wide open rendering and sharpness is on high level, a very good purchase to accompany my E-M10 MK2. Below a series processed in color.

Static things in Camden Town.

Another series shot during my stay in London for the concert of The Cure. Camden Town was mostly sunny that sunday, so we were out and about walking around. Shot a lot of photographs there. Here a serie of static stuff and a few views. All shot with the Olympus E-P1 and the m.zuiko 45mm 1.8.
