Results from a short photowalk to the Europaplatz in Bern. Here, a tram line, a bus line and two commuting train lines cross. People get off and on public transport vehicles. There’s a supermarket, a pharmacy, some fast food places, and everything is covered by the bridge of a highway. There is also a cultural and religious centre, with jewish, hindu, buddhism centres, and a mosque. A place where people meet.
All but one photos taken with a Fujifilm X-Pro 2.
(Edited on 1st of May 2018. Replaced most images by S/W copies with strong contrast. Much more adequate for those graphic street photography pics.)

A month ago I bought an old Contax G1 camera on eBay. I loaded it with some Kodak Gold 200 film from the lokal supermarket (waiting for a few rolls of Tri-X 400 to arrive) and gave it a test run. The Contax is pretty heavy when carried around with one hand – a lot heavier than my Fuji X100 and my NEX-7. It feels very solid and gives a great feeling when operated. Some people complain about “small and dark” viewfinder, but I found it OK.

A sunday afternoon walk through Thun. All photos were taken with the NEX-7 and the Sony 18-200 Superzoom lens. Who says that good photos can only be made with prime lenses?

This one is my third image that made it into Flickr’s EXPLORED. It reached #75 on 13 April 2012.

A night and a day on the streets in Bern with the Fuji X100
This weekend I had the opportunity to take the Fuxi X100 out on a photo safari in Bern. Some of the phots were taken at night (after 11 pm) in the station, some on a very warm and sunny afternoon in Bern. I was positively surprised that a relatively large fraction of the shots were quite usable, at least from the technical point of view (sharpness, noise,…). Speaking of noise: the Fuxi X100 virtually has no visible noise up to ISO 3200. I was again amazed by its low light performance.
