About me

I became fascinated with photography in the 60's as a kid, got turned on to 35mm by the movie "Blow-up" and did a fair amount of B&W in college when I had access to a darkroom.

After college the era of family and jobs took over and I degenerated to a series of point and shoot cameras and the resulting boring pictures.

In 2000 I spent three weeks in Africa with a borrowed Canon and a telephoto. I was rehooked.

Currently I'm working with a Nikon D50 and a Nikon N50 film camera.

    Hy Bruce,

    thanx for your comment to

    yes, the strike of the color against the corals was the reason, I uploaded this picture. Truely, the sharpness is on the coral, but i think the "overall" of the pic takes part.

    Best regards

    I also remember the film "Blow up". The excitement in the dark room when the camera captured things the eye didn't notice (murder in that case). Really unforgettable.
    I like your photos very much. Amazing captures.
