It has been a while since my last blog post. I decided to take a two months break from teaching during the summer to get inspired and to reload for the next season of mentoring. My first trip for this summer was to the Spanish Island of Mallorca with my family. Mallorca is a beautiful island in the mediterranean sea and perfect for a family vacation and some photography.
It was the first time that we went there but definitely not the last time! What a gorgeous place with the small, hidden beaches, nice people, amazing food but most of all, the very clear, almost emerald water! A real sight for sour eyes! A lot of my days at Mallorca started with watching a beautiful sunrise and capturing images with my children who are also Fujifilm freaks. My son has the Fujifilm X-E1, my oldest daughter the X-T1 and the youngest has also an X100S. I guess you can call us the Fujifilm Family 😉

For this vacation I brought the Fujifilm Xpro 2 and the X100s, the Fujinon lenses 16-55 F/2.8 and of course… the Lensbaby Edge 80! Ever since I became the proud owner of the Fujifilm Xpro 2, I fall in love with this camera every day a bit more. It’s so amazing! No matter what kind of photography you are shooting, portraiture, nature or street photography, the Xpro 2 nails it every, single time! Low light or harsh sun light is no problem for this camera. Along with the Fujinon 16-55mm, it’s the perfect combination for city trips or vacations. The 16-55 is an amazing lens. Tack sharp and fast. It’s as good as a prime! But don’t underestimate the power of the “old” X100s! This little “perfect for my handbag” camera is like magic! Every single shot is a keeper! The X100s makes me think, stop and be more creative because I only shoot in Jpg with it.

The Lensbaby Edge 80 is one of my favorite and most used Lensbabies. I really love the tilt-shift effect of it and the bit of drama and painterly feel it gives to my images.
I shot a lot of images this summer. Not only at Mallorca but also in London and the Netherlands, where i live. I will dedicate a next post to my trip to London. For now, I stick with my Mallorca images. All images are shot in JPG because is was to lazy to edit all the images in RAW 😉 But thanks to the amazing dynamic range of the Xpro 2, that’s no problem.
Hope you’ll enjoy watching the images and thanks for viewing!
Just a last short note: Beware… It’s a huge share 😉
