I am very glad to join the fotocommunity, hopefully I can find some interesting members who see photography as a means of self-expression, maybe art and a great way to see the world.
A professional I am not. I believe it was the great American photographer Alfred Stieglitz who wrote that ...'that only the true amateur has the personal freedom to express himself without any restrictions...'
I was born in Germany but live now in Taiwan for 15 years. In 2007 I rode by bike (my other passion) from Los Angeles to San Francisco, cycled Wine County. America is a great country, I met there so many kind people. Unfortunately is has lost its direction somewhere...
If interested you are welcome to share a fruitful discussion of my pictures, I am looking forward to any suggestions to make my photos more interesting.
