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.

    thank you Archie, in this case they are no farm animals.. They live in a natural park where they have to take care of themselves and find their food and shelter...but they are very sweet and gentle, some are quite afraid... lg, Mirjam

    Hi Archie, Thanks for your comments! The problem with this concert was that a few minutes later it was raining cats and dogs. And at least the first family looked to me like everyone forced to participate in this family outing, especially the young girls look very bored...

    The photo was taken in the Truckee yard. The train was at rest as the engineer had to take a break of some type. It was what allowed me the time to find the right juxtaposition. Also, when the train left the yard, I simply had to turn about and caught the connecting track joining with the main rail just as the final car came into position. Fun shot. Thanks for your comments.
