An autumn stroll in Ireland’s capital

“Cozy like a pub, hospitable like a village,” I could read before my departure on some websites as I was looking for some travel inspiration. I wasn’t quite able to imagine what that meant.

In her photos this photographer creates new worlds and realities. In a combination ...

Where this journey took me…

Hey guys, In one of my last articles, in which I told you my thoughts about the SIGMA 85mm F.14 DG HSM Art, you could also see some sample images which apparently hadn’t been taken in our area. So far, however, I haven’t told you where that journey took me. I wanted to wait until ...
