My English is limited and not so well as it should be :(.
I love the nature and enjoy to make batiks, the different techniques and colours. If you would like to read more about me and the batiks you will find more informations on my blog or on my Website...

I love to take photos since I was a child and I took photos from all that I love ... mostly you will see nature, because it is the most that I love!

As Teenager I started with a Rolleicord 6x6 from my father, with which I have even taken the first pictures of my three now adult children. Later came a Olympus SLR and when this was stolen I got a Minolta SLR.

2006 I changed the camera and used the small and handy Canon Powershot A610. Since the end 2010 my only equipment is the Canon Powershot G11. I love the camera and it is almost always my daily companion.

It is a pleasure for me to be here on flickr ... there are so many fantastic photographers. I have learned soo much and still do ... thank you for sharing your photos and your wonderful inspirations!

If you don't find yourself any longer in my contactlist don't take it personally. Sometimes I clear my contacts and take those out who hasn't been here for a longer time ... I think they are not longer interesting in my photos.
I try to keep my contactlist small so that it is possible for me to visit my friends. More than 4.000 user added me as a contact ... this is not possible for me to return. But if you are really interested in my photos and I notice your visits then I take you to my contactlist.

Thank you a lot for your visit and interest in my photos and for your comments, invitations and faves, I appreciate them all :) !

All my photos are under my copyright. Please don't use them for any commercial or non-commercial reasons without my permission, don't hesitate to contact me.

in Aktion ...

„Die Tatsache, dass eine (im konventionellen Sinn) technisch fehlerhafte Fotografie gefühlsmäßig wirksamer sein kann als ein technisch fehlerloses Bild, wird auf jene schockierend wirken, die naiv genug sind, zu glauben, dass technische Perfektion den wahren Wert eines Fotos ausmacht.“ (Andreas Feininger)


Ich liebe die Natur und mache sehr gerne Batiken. Wenn Ihr mehr über mich erfahren möchtet könnt Ihr einfach auf meinen Blog oder auf meine Webseite gehen und mehr über mich lesen ....

Ich liebe das Fotografieren eigentlich schon seit meiner Kindheit. Es ist also lange ein Hobby von mir! Ich freue mich, dass mittlerweile auch meine Kinder die Leidenschaft dafür entdeckt haben.

Ihr werdet überwiegend Naturfotos bei mir sehen, denn ich liebe das, was die Natur geschaffen hat! Ich bin einfach fasziniert davon!

Begonnen habe ich mit einer Rolleicord 6x6 von meinem Vater, mit der ich noch die ersten Bilder meiner inzwischen erwachsenen drei Kinder aufnahm. Später kam eine Olympus SLR und als mir diese gestohlen wurde eine Minolta SLR.

2006 wechselte ich die Monolta gegen die handliche und leichte Canon Powershot A610. Seit Ende 2010 benutzte ich die Canon Powershot G11. Ich liebe sie und sie ist mein täglicher Begleiter.

Ich bin begeistert von der Flickr Gemeinschaft, es gibt hier so viele fantastische Fotos und Fotografen. Durch sie habe ich schon soo viel gelernt und tue es noch … ganz herzlichen Dank, dass ihr eure Fotos zeigt und es dadurch Allen möglich macht sich so wunderbar inspirieren zu lassen!

Wenn Ihr Euch nicht mehr unter meinen Kontakten findet nehmt es bitte nicht persönlich. Ab und zu räume ich auf und nehme die Kontakte raus, die länger nicht mehr hier waren ... ich denke, dass diese nicht länger an meinen Fotos interessiert sind.
Ich versuche meine Kontaktliste klein zu halten, so dass ich auch Zeit finde die Fotos meiner Kontakte zu besuchen. Mehr als 3.500 User haben mich als Kontakt hinzugefügt, das kann ich nicht erwidern. Wenn ich merke, dass jemand ernsthaft an meinen Fotos interessiert ist, werde ich den Kontakt auch erwidern.

Herzlichen Dank für Euren Besuch, Euer Interesse an meinen Fotos, all die Kommentare, Einladungen und Faves, ich freue mich sehr darüber :) !

    Ich hatte das Glück sie auch persönlich kennzulernen.
    Auch das war ein toller Moment.
    Bleib so wie du bist.

    "Uschi doesn't have the biggest camera, but with her tremendous talent for composition many of her pictures are some of the best I've seen on Flickr (I'm comparing with maybe millions of photos). She's quite all-round in her photography and mostly publishes work of beautiful nature, architecture, macros and from times her cute grandson. Uschi mostly shows pictures from her native Germany, but also from international trips. Uschi is really a sweet and loyal contact and I enjoy our friendship!"

    "Uschi's photostream is a wonderful choice to enjoy the beauty of nature and colours.

    I love the composition and colours through her ideas which are so inspirational and extraordinary. The colours are so identical for the seasons and I really can smell the freshness from the flowers and landscapes.

    Uschi, you are a wonderful friend and I am really happy to know you on flickr and thanks so much for your supports to me.

    "Take a tour through Uschi's photostream. You are in for a treat. She has an eclectic and aesthetic collection of images ranging from travel shots to entomological, botanical and arcitectural images. She also has images of her outstanding batik art. Uschi has been extremely active and popular on Flickr earning a huge number of faves and views on many photographs. I am most impressed, however by her as a person. She's extremely generous and warm hearted in her interactions with others in the many photo groups she is a member of. In addition, her photography speaks of a joy of life and a desire to share her talents and energies with the world. I feel honored to call her one of my favorite Flickr friends."

    "Immer wieder überrascht uns Batikart mit Ihren Fotos! Sie schafft es mit ihrer "bescheidenen Fotoausrüstung" wunderschöne Fotos zu machen und uns in erstaunen zu versetzen! Das Motiv steht bei ihr im Mittelpunkt. Vom Macro bis zum "Gewaltigen Bär" oder sehr ansprechende Landschaftsaufnahmen. Man merkt, die Bilder sind mit Freude am fotografieren gemacht!
    Liebe Batikart mach weiter so - so können wir uns an Deinen Bildern erfreuen und natürlich ganz unbescheiden Inspiration holen.
    Danke dafür!"
