Thanks to my father, I started taking photographs as a child – of family, playmates and cats, using a box brownie.
As a young student I went through my cemetery phase, student parties and portraits of my peers. Then there were the children, family holidays, overseas places, Moscow and the comrades. At that time we had a film Single-lens reflex camera and a laundry converted to a darkroom.
2008 and a trip to Deutchland, the bug was definitely back. I was always lagging behind, seeing must see pictures to snap. And there was the magic of digital!
2010 a Panasonic LX3. Thank you Panasonic, what a great little camera. This was the year I seriously began to learn how to use digital technology.
