In the name of the Lord...(and the X-E1 got baptised too)


Last Sunday I was taking a stroll along the beach of Ostend when suddenly I noticed a group of people...


Curious as I often am I approached this group and took some general pictures...



Then I asked one lady, closest to me, what was happening? It was a baptism she told me. I asked the man in charge if it was ok for them if I took some closer pictures during the baptism. You are very welcome to do so was his answer...This group was the "Eglise de Jesus Christ de l'Esprit de Verite BIMA" an organisation founded by the apostle Prophet Bolia Inzola in 1975...


Three men went into the sea and called the others. I didn't hesitate very long, of went my shoes and I stripped my trousers up and joined them in the water. The group was ready for the event, as was the lifeguard...


And in they went...









A last picture in the sea...


After that they asked me to take a groupshot, a request I was happy to oblige...


All the pictures where taken with the Fuji X-E1 and the 18-55mm kitlens. This time I wish I had the 18-135 and getting less wet as a result. So if anyone at Fuji should read this...I would gladly test the 18-135 :)

Amen to that !

Streetphotography with the X-E1 in China, in colour...

China is a very beautiful country for a photographer and in the last two parts of this blog I posted only B&W images. But China is also a very colourful country...

Streetphotography with the X-E1 in China

This year I had the great pleasure of spending 3 weeks in China. Not sticking to one place, but travelling through this vast and beautiful country. As I wanted to travel light I opted for the Fuji X-E1 with the 18-55mm, backed-up by the Fuji X100s.
Anyhow, I took a lot of pictures of the locals and here is a brief B&W selection. Some of them are shy, others are happy, some are young and some are old. Others are painfully poor...but does it mean it should not be recorded?
