Last week I was on holiday in Ohrid, North-Macedonia. A beautiful country with great photo opportunities.
I took my X100 (first version), WCL 28mm converter and five batteries (no charger).
All images shot in Astia Jpeg / DR200 and post processed in Lightroom.

Ohrid is a very nice town with a historic city centre which is Unesco world heritage.
Lake Ohrid is fed from lake Prespa on a 200m higher level. The water is filtered by the rocky mountains and as a result the water in Lake Ohrid is very clear and cold.

The boulevard along the lake is the place to have a drink at a bar, play cards with friends after a swim in the lake, train a traditional dance etc.

At the other side of town there's a lounge bar (Cuba Libre) which is the perfect place to watch the sunset.

Thanks Dallas. I consider myself lucky to be able to travel to interesting places. My photographic vision is dependent on inspiration. Anyway, I'm glad I travelled light with just the X100. The limitation of two focal lengths (28 and 35mm) forces me to look better, a zoom lens is very handy but tends to make me lazy.

      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!).
       
      1. The ferry arrives from Central Station to the NDSM quarter.
