I'm a Digital nut, have been so, since I owned an Apple Quicktake 150. I know you real photographers are going mad now, so sorry. I'm a huge fan of Eugene Aget, who I think is the first surreal photographer, once writing a paper comparing him with other photographers of his day.
What make me take photographs, well I suppose it's to do a lot with people walking around and not observing their surroundings, so I try and bring that home to them. I prefer taking architectural, and landscapes, rather than people. We see people all the time, but wwe don't see our surroundings.
I owned, to date the range of Sony cybershot digital cameras, and I'm using a Sony R1 at the moment, when I can afford it I will upgrade. To what I'm not sure yet, but I am always looking ahead.
