Last night, after shutting down my business laptop for good for 2017, the significant other and myself headed into Nuremberg’s Old Town for some Bratwurst and Mulled Wine. To unwind and get into the right Christmas spirit. We took a walk in the alleys below the Imperial Castle to look at a few Christmas trees the city has put up. I took along the Olympus PEN-F and the 12mm F/2 and 25mm F/1.8 primes. For a few more images continue after the jump….

I was only photographing in P-Mode, all shots were taken handheld (the significant other wouldn’t tolerate me fumbling around with a tripod). With the prime lenses and ISO 1600 (which is completely usable on the Olys) I got pretty much a constant 1/25 – 1/60 second shutter speed, which I can easily handhold, thanks to the image stabilization of the PEN.

I hope you enjoyed that little stroll through Nuremberg’s Old Town and that you are getting into the spirit of Christmas as well!

  1. Thank you for sharing your photos of the old town. It brings back fond memories of my visit to the Frankfurt Christmas market. When I was a little girl my father splurged and took our little family to Germany at Christmas time to meet his brother and sister and my mother’s mom and sister. Fröhliche Weihnachten und einen guten Start ins neue Jahr. Carola
