Los Angeles with the X-T1 | STOCKOGRAFIE

Once again I was sent on a business trip this year. You might still remember that I was the lucky one that went to visit Beijing/China in June 2014. This time I was sent to the opposite side of the World. The destination this time was Los Angeles. Actually the city of Long Beach where the company I work for has an RD department. Well I´ll be damned. I have to fly to LA in November. What a misery. It had been becoming increasingly cold in Germany and off I had to travel to sunny California. And that is just what I did. It meant that I had to leave my very beloved wife back at home for 16 days all together. I wish she could have joined me. But then again it gave me some free time to go and do what I love most. Photography! Of course I had to work as well. The company is not shelling out thousands just to send me on vacation. The downside was that the working hours where long and by the time I had finished it was dark already. Just like in Beijing I had to make the best of the evenings and the weekend in between. Luckily I did not have to work on the weekend. The hotel was situated right by the Pine Ave in Long Beach. There are plenty of bars and restaurants there so I definitely did not go to bed hungry. The so called Shoreline Village seems to be a touristy place which did make it feel a bit like a vacation, at least in the evenings, especially being able to sit outside with the temperature at about 22°C in the evenings drinking a cool bear. Sometimes it was warmer and sometimes colder! Anyway, to cut a long story short I did get the opportunity to take my Fuji X-T1 and the lenses I had with me for a run. I packed the XF18-55, the XF23, the Zeiss 1.8/32 and the Samyang 12mm f/2 in the bag. There was no lens I used most but I must admit that the Zeiss 32 could have stayed home this time. Sorry Zeiss ……
