I really appreciate if you want to make me a contact. Please don't be offended if I don't reciprocate. I like to try and keep up with everyone's pics and the truth is I just don't have time add many more contacts. I would rather have a few good contacts than thousands of people I never hear from. If you have not stopped by in a while or you have not posted a pic in months then chances are I have deleted you from my contact list.

On Photography

I try not to take myself too seriously. Photography is fun, that is why I do it. .

I like to tell stories, funny ones, or some that might make you think about something. Some of my pictures have stories to go along with them. Especially the pictures that aren't any good. If the story is funny enough maybe people won't notice that the picture is lousy.


Q) What kind of Camera do you use?
A) A black one from this company.
Object of My Desire

Q) What's up with the stupid screen name.
A) I couldn't think of anything, and the names STUD, DUDE, and Ansel Adams were already taken.

Q) How did you decide which camera to buy?
A) I went into a camera store and picked up two cameras, I bought the one that was the heaviest.

Q) What is your favorite lens?
A) I like most of the ones with glass.

Q) What is your favorite thing about photography?
A) I like the sound that the camera makes when you press the button on top.

Q) Are you really bald?
A) No.

Q) Why don't you quit your job and just sell your picutres?
A) How many pictures would you like to buy?

Thank you for stopping by and having a look around.

    "Well, it's just about time that I let everybody know how I add some buzz and fun to my days..... It's when I decide that it's a MIKE day - his work is like the best of cartoons - his mind works fast and his heart is huge - he takes wonderfully humorous shots and adds then an equally fascinating short story to it - he makes me laugh and smile .... a lot!!!
    Dear Mike, please don't let your family and work get the better of you (ha ha); we need to be entertained from time to time - and this is no laughing matter!
    THANKS a bunch for your excellent contributions, for the great discussions we had over the time and thanks for being a true human being, both inside and outside - not something one might expect in a photographer with such a cool profile.... :)))
    Big hug, Kiki"

    "Even though Mike denies to have a style, he sure has one: his pics are always very, very elegant, no matter what the theme is. And he has a lot of photos in his stream, which I count as my alltime favourites on flickr. Thanks for sharing them, Mike."
