thanks Hans!
whenever somebody recognises Bjørn in my images my heart starts pumping with joy :)
to me, it means that i am doing something right  8)
others might state that i am a copy-cat and that i don't have a style of my own, but let's not focus on such thoughts, since i cannot focus anyhow  :D

Heligon or smoking is enough, both together is too much for one poor soul

the diamond stars  looking plant is outstanding

Sorry to be so indifferent but I like them all. Esp. mention goes to the bug on the flower and the bw basketball
scene in the middle of nowhere.
You are out there. You and your camera. You can shoot or not shoot as you please. Discover the world, Your world. Show it to us. Or we might never see it.

fortunately Jakov - we are allowed to be totally creative and everything goes on NG. Which means I am exposed to stuff I wouldn't normally seek out. That is good for me.
Dope is still illegal in SA..  ;) ;)

Today I mounted my beloved Heligon Rodenstock 100/1.6 on the panda. I purposely didn't do it for some time, afraid of becoming overly addicted to it :)
It goes without saying how much I like this combination, and how much fun I have shooting and processing the images!
That's something I recognize ;)   Great shots.

Last night whilst waiting for my kids to return from an open air theatre I didn't know what else to do but to photograph the open sky from my enormous porch. As you can see at 28mm I can see a lot of the sky :)

The Nikon AW1 is loads of fun!
Selfys underwater can be difficult at times, but I like that my daughter and I are chopped off in this one :)

I love those star trails. I've never done them ... but I love what others can do.

Thanks gary, I am certain you can create them with ease. Just point your camera into the sky and set the shutter to about 10 minutes ;)

Here is another focussed and colorful image of mine, I know Elsa likes those :)

That is absolutely beautiful. How much post manipulation was necessary to create such an image? Being an old photojournalist ... I've been trained to document and accuracy ... at times it is hard to see outside that box.
