About me


As a person who enjoys capturing in photos what is around us this seems like a really good place to learn and share what I have found. (As of 12/6/07 I feel that all of you here at FC have taught me a lot.) My current digital camera is a cannon Powershot S31S that I am still learning about. Your comments, thoughts and feelings about my photos are much appreciated. Be critical as your constructive comments will only make me better. And I know for some shots, I just need a better camera. ;)
It's Feb. 15, 2008 and time to draw a line in the profile. I just bought a Canon EOS 40D so all photos from this point are taken with the new camera.
Thanks for all your comments! They are making me a better photographer.
Now it's mid Oct. of 2008 and I have been on FC a year now. This has been a good year learning how to use my camera and making many friends. There is still much to learn about photography, especially in editing. Thank you all for helping me with my photos and being a friend.
Another entry in the profile and it is June 2009. This will be my last entry in this profile as I am letting my membership expire. It is time for this child who has learned so much from the friends here on fc to leave the nest and move on. I love and appreciate all whom I have met here and wish you all the best. If you wish to contact me, send me an e-mail at

After 5 years away from Fotocommunity, I think it may be time to return. Currently I use a Canon 6D. As of Sept. 2014 I will again add a few photos here and participate in the community.

    greetings Archie - and thank you very much for your unexpected comment for my "South America" cave shot .... indeed fascinating to be inside - and in our areas here anemones and starfish on the walls and those interesting shapes looking out .... hard to photograph though :-)))
    wish you a great remaining Sunday,

    Hi Archie, many thanks. The sad aspect is that we have quite a few uranium mines in the vicinity, a little further up is Husab, second richest deposit of the world owned by the Chinese, then there is Rossing (Rio Tinto), Laanger Heinrich and the French and a host of others . This one is a very low grade ore that is why they have to remove all the mountains and hills, there should have been a cut off point somewhere especially seeing that it is in a national park (but so is Husab), we have so many uranium mines, some of them dormant because of the low uranium price at the moment. That is really the only thing that could save this one or that there could be a glut of uranium. Wish you a good week, best regards,cathy

    Thanks for your comments, Archie! If you have never been to Venice, you should got there. It is nice when you stay in one of the quarters (p.e. Dorsoduro) which is not so overcrowded with tourists. Have a nice day, Sabine
