Taking the 15mm Voigtlaender out for a daylight spin. Great crispy lens but it will take me some time to get used to.... Coming Monday I'll take it to the Veronica Camping Tour so expect some more super wide angle later this week...

Willem Velthoven of Mediamatic is a great guy always getting something going. He is a wonderful advisory board member of Amsterdam Cross Media Week, doing some interesting programs like 'El Hema' and an avid Leica M8 Photographer. As I am getting more interested in the different kind of lenses for the M8, he was so kind to lend me his Voigtlander 15 mm. I will be test driving it coming week, but I already know by now that I am reading for the ultra wide angle!

The summer edition of the Amsterdam International Fashion Week is held this year at the Museum Square in Amsterdam. That meant that Caroline and I could just walk there.
James Veenhoff has made a great happening of it again and the young and upcoming designers show was excellent.

We had an unforgettable holiday last two weeks in South Africa. A country we visited for the fourth time, now to meet with friends that have moved there. Next to the normal site-seeing and going through the history we had a great long weekend at the Witwater lodge, a truly unique experience. You can see all of our holiday, but there is a lot of wildlife, kids and happy faces :)

A great meeting for my farewell from Interimic at good friend Meus' home. Not only was there nice company of people, but also the Iphone, especially flown in courtesy of Vincent, who got one in the US. Indeed a very snazzy piece of kit, must have as soon as it comes over to Europe...

At Ipan we will have a gaming evening coming Tuesday at Hotel Arena in Amsterdam. Not only will we have a very interesting line up of speakers moderated by myself, we will also have a competition where WII's can be won. So make sure you are there to enjoy and learn at the same time! Roderick is trying out the WII and the verdict from him is: GREAT!
