Here you got my new website and the new blog inside it. I hope you enjoy it as much as I am.
Back in Norderney, one day I took a ferry to a nearby island called Juist. Which is a little bit larger (16Km) but narrower (about 500 to 700 meters wide) island. You can literally walk from one side to the other of the island in barely 5 minutes at a slow pace.
The interesting thing about it, is that cars are not allowed and almost everybody goes either by bike or on foot or they ride horses. It looks pretty similar to Norderney although it’s flatter and maybe a little bit greener and sure it’s more peaceful.
The only thing I would’ve liked to is to stay one more day and photograph it in a rainy day, but I was lucky enough to have a beautiful and hot sunny day.
The photos I took there were entirely shot with the fuji X100.
After a few days of finishing uni, a sudden proposal arrived: Do you want to leave in 5 days to Germany until September and spend the whole summer there working? I must admit that at first I was shocked. Where? What? Why? Yes?
Had only one day to decide and I think the answer was pretty clear from the beginning: Yes!
So I’ve spent the last two months working and living in a little island in the north of Germany called Norderney. A 12km long and barely 1.5km wide island with only one really small town. Which if I have to admit never heard of before nor have I seen anything from it. And I decided to keep it that way, not looking for any information nor photos of the place before going there, I wanted to be surprised and amazed by it and approach the experience as an opportunity for a photographic journey.
It’s been almost 2 months full of feelings, a wide variety of emotions and loads of film. Although in today’s post I show you the photos taken with the Fuji X100, actually the only digital camera I shoot as I almost shoot entirely on film right now.
