Devil’s Lake

I visit the Devil’s Lake State Park almost every year, mostly in fall. With heavy rain in Wisconsin for the past couple of weeks, the water level is really high. Fortunately, the rain stopped and I was able to set … Read More

Tiedeman Pond

I got a few rolls of Fujifilm Pro 160S last year right before it’s out of production. Its colors look different than Kodak Ektar 100. As film selections become fewer and fewer and the price keeps going higher and higher, … Read More

Spring is (almost) here

We had about a week of spring in Wisconsin. And all of a sudden it felt like winter again today, although we didn’t get 10+ inches of snow in Madison.

Hasselblad announced yesterday that they are going to put their V system to an end. It’s not a surprising news, but I was always wondering when this day would come. I bought my first Hasselblad, a 501CM, in 2007, and … Read More

Fujifilm X-Pro1 and Konica Hexanon Lenses
