Sunday today, after a long period of time and mostly at home except for work, we went outside for a walk, to a place not far from our home where bluebells grow in the forest. Hyacinthoides non-scripta, in Belgium we say “forest hyacinths” or “boshyacinten” in Dutch.
This tiny flower has the well-known reputation of luring crowds of people to the forests when they are in bloom. The most famous place is the Hallerbos. But I know a place close by, where although not so dense but present, and where I can photograph them.

Camera: Fujifilm X-T10 with K&F Concept adapter and Olympus OM Zuiko MC 50mm f3.5 Macro.
A nice lens for macro and still a usable focal length for a few regular photos.
Later I will do a review about this lens.

Then something completely different.
Photography with film (and photography in general) has come to a complete standstill in the last month and since the purchase of the various new types of 35mm film.
Different causes: Covid restrictions, the weather, work, other obligations etc.
As a result, the creation of new film simulations has come to a complete standstill.
But there is also a light at the end of the road, next week is my very last working week before I fully retire. I recently turned 60, and I am one of the lucky few who can retire a little earlier.
A lot of free time you will think, unfortunately, due to the Covid restrictions a lot of work has also been left behind, repairs at home and holiday home, garden works, and a wife at home who is already making lists of chores.
The intention is to start shooting again in May, and I think new simulations should be ready by the end of June early July.

So everything might slow down a bit for a while, but we do our best to bring you new interesting articles in the foreseeable future.

  1. Our bluebell fields should be in full bloom next week, and believe me, I’ll be posting about them too! They are such a beautiful flower to photograph, and you have photographed them really well Marc. Beautiful 😍😍😍


    1. Thanks Mark, well, I’m already looking forward to yours.
      Where I have photographed them they are not that close together, but there are places where it looks completely blue with the flowers. But those are the places I prefer to avoid right now.
