Me
me behind my camera

I am 50¼ years old and I live in Hagen, Germany (show on Bing)

About 7¼ years ago I started to get an interest in taking photos,so I purchased a Digital SLR + some lenses on the recommendation of a friend. I like this model very much. Nonetheless I upgraded to another DSLR after a couple years.

Because I work in an IT company and have some experience in web development, I decided to put this photoblog online so others can see some of my efforts.

The name Distant Camera of this blog is taken from the Neil Young song by the same name.

Fading WordsHere's a blog with book reviews.
