About me

Hi to all Fotocommunity members and Photo enthusiasts,
As a young lad I started taking photographs with my first camera, a Box-Camera which I retrieved from a local Rubbish-Tip. After some necessary repairs it functioned very well! This got me interested.
I have now moved-up to a more technical level. For some of the shots published here I used a SONY 4.0 Mp Cyber-shot. This gave me great results everytime. I have now addad to this a new CASIO Ex - Z1000 10.1 MP and Sony Handycam DCR-DVD 403E. The Handicam includes a still feature of 3.0 MP. My latest acquisition is a Nikon D90 Camera with a Nikon 18-105mm telephoto lens and a Tamron 10-24mm wide angle lens.
My favourite photo themes are People, Nature in all its forms and Technology!
Basically, among many other interests, I 'm just a keen photo enthusiast - from the beautiful Blackforest (Schwarzwald), Germany-Greetings to all participants!

    Nikolaus I take your query very very seriously and whilst on holiday here in Sydney I shall look long and hard for evidence. Back home I have seen trails of very drunk snails but none hopping as yet. Yours in escargology!
