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 archiek@charter.net.

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.

    ....damn, I wish I would have thought of that... :-)))
    Wonderful shot of this old wagon. If it could talk it would
    have lots of stories. However, it looks like it has lost
    it's tongue.
    ...That is a good one...

    Yes it is definitely a sculpture of crucified Christ with a crown of Thorns and the water flows from the nail holes in his hands and the thorn holes in his head, he had several other Christ related sculptures at the show, I started to blur or mask out the male body part, but decided to leave it original, mostly out of respect of the artist.....if it is in anyway offensive I will remove it, I sure would not want to offend anyone or their beliefs....
    Best Wishes,

    Hi, you know in digital art sometimes one is surprised what comes out. I've done a dozen versions of this identical shot, all different. Unfortunately I cannot show them to you, because only fc posts can be shown within these parameters. thanks for your comment. ( yes, the bit of red IS intentional, it can be reduced or increased at will, but I like it this way)

    Cheers to you in sunny California - from frostteeeeee... Canada. janos
