One of the first photos ever, made by William Henry Fox Talbot: Latticed Window at Lacock Abbey, 1835.

first photo made by Henry Fox Talbot



The first painting I ever made (May 2016). Lessons learned: looking at forms, colours and the way light falls on the subjects - just like in photography.

(the first scetch, the background layer & the final painting)


Some photography humour:




I like the font Mamiya designed for their lenses - just look at that 'f' and 'm'.

"... avoiding the common illusion that creative work depends on equipment alone ..." (Ansel Adams in his book "The Camera")

"... I enjoy vintage cameras as “users,” rather than imprisoning them in some display case"

"... It's the bottom of a staircase that spirals out of sight ...

"... but I just love the good natured mirth you provided ..." (a complement I enjoyed receiving)
