About me


I am a German living in Cape Town with my South African husband and our two children Erik (born 2008) and Lillian (2010).

My camera is the Nikon D7000.

My photographic interests presently lie mainly with children and nature, so I apologize beforehand - you will see a lot of my kids simply because they are around me all the time. I will also post garden close-ups, because that is the nature always accessible to me. I am fascinated by this micro-world out there and the beauty and art that one finds when you look closer.

Besides that I am interested in street and travel photography. People, cultures, landscapes are what fascinates me.

My favourite are backlight shots. They give me that happy in-the-magical-moment feel.

I must warn you that I won't always have the time to comment back on your pictures, but I will do my best to at least have a look at your gallery. So even if it doesn't seem like it, I assure you that I VERY much appreciate your feedback.

Thank you for visiting and looking forward to sharing views and experiences with you!

    Thank you kindly for your time and kind thoughts. Yes, as I know you can appreciate this as a loving Mommy, our children take our heart from the moment their hearts were beating in thier mommy's tummy,.. And then when you realize that thier life has started with a glitch,... Well, it's heart wrenching, but we press on forward with God's grace and always put on your best smile possible to be strong for them,.. and you find out they are stronger then yourself..... :)
