About me

“To me, photography is an art of observation. It's about finding something interesting in an ordinary place... I've found it has little to do with the things you see and everything to do with the way you see them."

Elliot Erwitt

    Hi Felix, hab gesehen, Du verstehst auch deutsch. Hab mich grad durch Deine Galerie geklickt, wobei das schon abwertend ist, man kommt ja aus dem Staunen nicht mehr raus! Deine Galerie ist der Bezeichnung auch wuerdig - im Vergleich zur fc Galerie (wenn ich grad mal so meckern darf). Jedenfalls bin ich begeistert von Deinen Aufnahmen die voller Leben und Atmosphere sind. Ich will keines mehr davon verpassen!

    Hallo Felix,
    many thanks to your comments on my pics.
    You always end with: you could have done better. Thats true, so every time i take a new pic i think of your words and try to do the best of the situation.
    China is a part of my every day life now, so i try to hold all the moments i experience here in the pictures.
    Nice greetings from beijing, Lukas
