The Early Ones

Journal Entry: Wed Feb 1, 2012, 10:45 AM
I would like to present some of my very early favourites,
remembering that it has been five years ago now,
that I moved to DA.

And these early favourites have told me,
how to use my photographic equipment.

# Two

The next one who has influenced me since a long time
is Eugene Donohoe, alias AgenttSmith

I have always been impressed by his masterful collages,
his B+W conversions and his compositions.

# One

Think it has become time to pay honour to some old friends.
They have influenced me a long time by their work.

The first one is Michael Höfner, alias miclart.
I have always adored his clear graphical architecture pictures
and his masterful stage shots.

A small note in own affair:
Recently two of my hipstas made it into a selection for a competition.
But the winner will be the one with most "Like"-clicks.
So it would be very nice if you were so kind and click on my pictures.

My pictures are the second from left in first and second row.

more then usually is necessary now,
cos I have to train for a long distance.

So I will not have all the time I need
to be present here.

But I´ll do my best to keep up the contacts
and to respond as much as I can.

Thank you so much for all your support !!

Phoneroids

Journal Entry: Thu Mar 3, 2011, 12:40 PM
Have always been a great fan of polaroids.
Recently I got a new cellphone and purchased for this a polaroid app.
Today I played around with this app and perhaps
you might like the results,
straight out of the phone,

Phoneroids.

I´ll answer on every comment under one of my pictures and on my page.

And I´ll try to make a journal with features.
