This piece continues my photographic journey around Copenhagen. You can see part 1 by clicking here. Before delving into more photos, let me say a bit about the lenses I took with me. After some deliberation I decided upon the 18, 27 and 60mm primes. That meant leaving the fisheye, 50-230 and my old manual focus optics at home. I think overall the trio I picked out covered 95% of the shooting situations I found myself in. They are all capable performers, their light weight and in particular the small size of the 18 and 27 make them great for travel. You can just put them into a messenger bag or even a coat pocket and blend into the crowd. I’ve got a great LowerPro backpack that I used to cart my Nikon gear around in, but it’s not something I want weighing on my shoulders for hours, especially when walking around all day. The great thing about the Fuji system for travel photography is that it’s so compact and lightweight compared to even a small DSLR setup – crucially while still producing top notch results. It’s taken awhile for mirrorless cameras to reach this point, but now I know there’s no going back.....

Today was a rainy, dark day. I took my Fuji X-Pro1 out in the rain, brought along an umbrella to protect the camera and myself a bit. Usually sundays in Copenhagen are rather sad and borring. Shops are closed, streets seems empty. Today though, lots of tourists in the streets, a viking market (Not sure, I think that is what was going on) And also a Ironman contest! - Did not expect that.. That gave me something to photograph, try out the focus speed trying to catch focus on the runners, wich went pretty damn bad (I don't blame the camera, more the photographer... me) My camera was set to 16:9 raw+jpeg, but I ended up editing the raw files and cropping to 16:9. Just wanted to try this format, since I never have tried anything else than the standart. All shot with the Fuji 35mm f1.4.....

I went to Copenhagen with my partner for a short holiday this April. Copenhagen is a really beautiful city that strikes a good balance between preserving its history and being modern. I’ve been meaning to see more of Europe for some time now, so it was great to experience a bit of Scandinavia. Denmark is sufficiently different from the UK to be really interesting, but familiar enough to feel comfortable. This is helped particularly by the excellent English most people are able to speak, that makes life so much easier for foreign tourists. We were very lucky with the weather, although it was grey and wet on the day we landed, every other day was glorious sunshine and blue skies. One advantage of the poor weather on the first day, was that when we got to see the famous Little Mermaid statue it wasn’t crowded with tourists. A couple of days later when we passed it while doing a canal tour, people were swarming over it like flies. Every cloud has a silver lining as they say!.....
