Fuji X-10 Magic

October 10th, 2012 @ 20:12

Still can’t believe that FujiFilm X-10 can deliver photos of such amazing quality, straight in JPG, in automatic mode, and almost without any post-production editing of the colors!

These two shots are from the Seven Rila lakes, where we went with Ani on the 30th of September this year (it was our 8-th year together, we had an anniversary to celebrate)!

12 MPix, 2/3″ EXR CMOS sensor, RAW/JPEG, 28-112 mm vario lens (35 mm equiv.), F2.0-2.8 — the technical characteristics of the Fuji X-10 are pretty good.

But this is not that important — more important is that shooting with the camera gives the photographer an immense pleasure, with every shot taken. I call it “The Fuji magic”. :-)

Simona Sax and Michel

The best present for my birthday. Simona today is 8 months old, 2 days (and counting). ;-)

The wonderful music of Jamie Mc Donald

May 21st, 2012 @ 13:26

You might have seen him on the streets of Sofia lately: red-haired, cool dude, with an acoustic guitar in his hands, and a strong voice.

Jamie Mc Donald, musician

He travels, plays and sings for his own pleasure (it seems). He’s now in Bulgaria and you can go and listen to his music in the Sofia music clubs — but sometimes on the street, too.

First time we heard him, it was when we were walking with Ani on Vitosha street, in the Winter. Two days ago we heard him sing again, on almost the same place. We stopped to listen for a while…

…then, after his last song, I asked him, where’s he from. Once we knew Jamie is from Ireland, it was quite obvious we’ll ask him to sing us some Irish song, since we’re big fans of Irish music!

So, the next song is “by fans’ request”:

Jamie Mc Donald: Fiddlers’s Green (shot with a Canon S5 IS camera)

Jamie Mc Donald has an official Facebook page and a YouTube channel.

you can listen to a few tracks from his next album, The Way It Was (where he performs with Boyana Zhelyazkova, violin). I like the music, a lot!

In the next few weeks you’ll be able to hear him sing in one of the Sofia clubs (maybe Mc Carthy’s or Swingin’ Hall)… or again, on the street.

Stop and listen for a while, if you happen to “bump” into him somewhere. You never know — maybe Jamie will soon leave for Ireland… or for the next destination on his travel list?… :)

PS Thanks for the music, Jamie! It was so nice meeting you! :-)
