i never liked photography very much! the idea of capturing moments - especially those that are meaningful to me - in a two-dimensional, somewhat reduced manner to me felt quite limited, even a bit absurd! with getting older my perspective has changed. i would like to develop & enhance my visual as well as my emotional perception. the pictures of this blog are just one outcome of this process.

having spent some time being ´round here i would like to add: most of the shots i take are not composed, constructed or staged, i just see something and take a picture. actually, quite often when i see them for the first time on the screen i am thinking to myself: why did i take this one - it´s neither interesting nor good? then, having a look again a few days, weeks, even months later i start to see something and the motives become more interesting... not always but quite often.

so, for me as a person that usually likes to keep tight control under any circumstances photography is some sort of miracle: for me personally it´s not about control, but surprise! about this very world we´re living in... ;)

p.s.: any comments and critique is highly appreciated, thx for stopping by and leaving a few words :)
