I can’t yet get enough from the annual “living statues festival” in the tiny city of Lommel in Belgium. Tiny as it is, somewhere in the middle of nowhere, artists from all over the world do their performance here. World first prize winners among them.

For photography the Fuji XE2 is used, with the zoomlenses 55-200/3.5-4.8 for portraiture and the 18-55/2.8-4.0 for street shots. Being there in late evening under a very clouded sky, ISO was set between 400 and 1000.

swiss alps in B&W

During the years I have made a lot of mountain trekkings in the “Valley”, the district in south-west of Switzerland.
