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.

    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

    Thank you Archie, I've only seen the documentary about Woodstock, but it was an interesting visit there, The Museum takes you right back to those times, they sell all the old records and CDs, and of course many different types of souvenirs. The day I was there only the museum was open (daily), but there was no concert scheduled; but in summer they have an extensive schedule of performances.
    Nevertheless, it was an interesting place to actually see!

    thank you so much for all your latest comments, Archie .... I really appreciate them. Our visit to the pyramids was much too short (that is why I don't like guided tours, but safety commanded it). So we did not go on any camel or horse or buggy rides - all was available ... we always say "next time", but I am afraid this was a once in a lifetime experience !!
    Wish you a great week - Spring already here so early with lots of blossoms, and I can just imagine your almond trees (was in California last year in Feb/March)
    greetings, Adele
