Alentejo (I)

This Summer we spent a week in Alentejo, Southern Portugal, close to the coast. Ironically, I took the best photos on the only overcast day of the vacation.

My (2nd) favorite beach

Pego beach in southwestern Portugal is my second favorite beach. This means a lot, considering that I am not at all a beach person, and usually prefer to sit under a sunshade in a outdoors cafe than to get covered with sand and sunscreen.

The photo below was taken in mid August. The Arrabida mountains are seen in the back, adding an unexpected frame to the northern horizon.

And which is my most favorite beach, you may ask? Well, that I will keep as a secret. You see, I don't like crowded beaches...

Devil's house

The house above is located behind Lille's cathedral (Northern France). The entire house is not much wider than the front door. Here's a detail, showing the sculpture on top of the window:

Olympus E-M5 - the best ever

It's official: the new Olympus E-M5 is the best MILC (mirrorless, interchangeable lens camera) ever made! Read the trustworthy review at Dpreview and be impressed. The E-M5 is even considered by some to be better than the Fuji X-Pro1, taking into account the cost/quality balance.

I still don't like the design of the camera. Making a mirrorless camera look like a reflex is pushing the retro look a bit too much, at least for my taste. But I am certainly impressed with all the excellent reviews this camera has been getting.

In a related note, Giulio Sciorio, an American commercial photographer, posted recently about why there should be no shame in using a little Micro 4/3 camera for professional work. Read here (via 43rumors.com ).
