I'm born (1960) and grown up in
Vienna / Austria. For the time I'm living with my family (hubby, three
children and one dog) in Northern Norway. Actually north from the Arctic
Circle ........... guess who's freezing all the time - LOL!
Of course I'm missing my home country, but I try to visit Austria and my family there regularly.
My first camera (and my second one
too!) I "inherited" from my father. He has always liked to
take pictures and was really glad that I had the same interest in
photography as he had.
In the summer 2001 I bought my
first own camera (I'm talking about SLR camera, and not the usual
compact cameras!), a Canon EOS 300
with a 28-90mm objective. And guess
what Santa, the same year, had in his sack for me .................. a
suitable 75-300mm objective. What more could I wish - LOL!
a link to a picture of me,
but be warned ............... it's a caricature, which was painted by a
local street artist in Mallorca (2001). That's not actually me - it's
more like they say: "In every fat person, there's a slim person
which wants to come out!" (The painter was more than kind with me
............. he painted my inner slim person - LOL!)
