Photography is my hobby and travelling, my passion...

I believe that Less is More. When it comes to photography, the challenge for me lies in capturing images with the least amount of photographic equipment.

I use a bridge camera, with one Leica lens only. No additional lenses, extra lighting or filters. I even get by without a tripod most of the time...

I travel light - a basic camera, a memory card and a huge amount of passion for photographyl.

I hardly ever do any post processing and don't use Photoshop. I only crop and and/or straighten an image if absolutely necessary.

I believe that if you can't capture the image the way it presents itself at the time, leave it for somebody else to capture, and move on...

Something to ponder - "Photographs are footprints of our minds, mirrors of our lives, reflections from our hearts, frozen memories that we can hold in silent stillness in our hands -- forever if we wish. They document not only where we have been, but also point the way to where we might perhaps be heading, whether or not we realize this yet ourselves..."
