What about this website?
Why even bother making it?
I have discoverd that the internet is a place where people trade, expess opinions, sell things, advertise etc
This site covers my ambitions about trying to be a better photographer every day, as well as expressing my opinions about creation.
|That's right, allthough I'm not
exactly a christian, I am totally convinced that there is a creator, and his (or
it's) power and majesty can be seen and experienced just by looking at "creation".
I think, photography is capable of transferring energy (sensed as emotions, feelings etc.) to individuals.
Just like music, paintings, sculptures, ballet, photography celebrates creation! We don't have to beleive in this, to be an active participant.
WE ARE ALL PART OF IT, and are all unified by the creator.
My dear old Voigtländer.
Given to me by my father, who bought it in the fifties in Australia.
Photography runs in our family, all family members, present and past have done it.
As a 12-year old child, Dad offered me his old camera, which, by the way, still works great!
It's 50mm standard lens still offers high quality images!
I used it very often, and I made hundreds of slides with it. On holidays, during a walk, the "men" in the family "took great care to record every inch of the landscape".
As a kid, I dreamt of large telephoto lenses, which would fit om my Bessamatic, to capture hidden animals in the trees and fields.
Later we all switched to the Pentax K-system, and together we obtained a large amount of SUPERfine Pentax glass.
I never lost the passion...
It really got moving with the purchase of my Nikon D70 in 2004. To buy it, I had to sell my analogue Pentax equipment. Allthough I sometimes miss the Pentax, I am very happy with my Nikon, the F-system allows me to use almost anything ever made for Nikon.
I love to seek out motives other people hardly notice...
The beauty of these swans, always together...
Furthermore, the mirror bokeh shows here, but I don't find it displeasing.
The Viaanse molen - Alkmaar, Netherlands
Important to me, because my aunt and uncle live and work there. My uncle still works with this mill! I remember, that, as a child from Australia, I was amazed about this immaculate structure! Now, my own children receive the same hospitality!
We visit often.
