A series of images I shot in my hometown Amersfoort with a Fuji X100 plus WCL-X100 28mm wide-angle converter.
All images shot in Astia Jpeg / Auto Dynamic Range (works amazing), postprocessing in Lightroom.
1. Sint Rochuskapel (built 16th century)
2. Spring cleaning
3. Museum Flehite
7. Sint Pieters en Bloklandsgasthuis (built 1907-1908)
13. Zandfoort aan de Eem

Yesterday I went to Amsterdam to visit the NDSM quarter at the Northern part of the city. This part of town was for years neglected and became a hot-spot for the alternative scene. More info on the NDSM quarter NDSM
Now it's rediscovered especially by young people as a hip and trendy place for living and relaxing. I think it's a lot more interesting than the old centre of Amsterdam which is being flooded with an overload of Airbnb tourists.
I shot a series of images, all with my vintage (introduced in 2010) Fuji X100, the original version. All images are post processed from in-camera Astia Jpegs (I love Fuji colours!).
