The good ones learn from the best. The best one learns from everyone.
Photo is only one of my many interest, but a feel of success always raises my ambitions. Flickr is for me a way to be inspired by and learn from many talented photographers from all over the world. That's a wonderful experience!
Photo is a tool I use to show others what I see. I don't always manage to, but when I do I can feel my heartbeats. I don't expect to raise your pulse with my photos, but when I notice that any of you stops and reflects on any om my photos, that also makes my heart beat faster.
The second most important tools when making photos of the nature are my feet. I can walk to beautiful places and move around in search for the good view. But most important are my eyes. I have experienced that I see colors, patterns and details I never noticed before I started to make photos. Looking at tens of thousands photos on flickr is definitely something that has helped me developing this tool.
I will continue both: Making photos and watching others photos. And continue to have fun.
