Photography is like life : a permanent process of learning and exercise. Every session is experience. And I have given up judging between "good" and "bad". Making experiences is just great and vital for growth and evolution. The world is what we think the world to be. So I prefer colour to dull and vibrant to stiff. It does not need a lot to be happy. A view though my camera helps me to learn that every day. Photography offers the best mindfulness-training I can imagine. You learn to make use of your conscious mind. When you have switched off the auto-pilot you face a new reality.

"Sea, idyllic country scenes, clouds, sunsets, beautiful compositions, colours, shades, perspective... In other words, a great master at work with his camera. All photos evoke so much, tell stories to each observer in a different way. They effect sight, senses and emotions...
Not long on Flickr, a beginner in photography, your photos excite me: each one is a piece of art and beyond photography! I am sure all your followers will agree with me.
Very happy to be a follower...
Thank you for sharing them…"
