Photography is my passion, thank you for taking the time to look at my picture's and profile.

Maybe now i find photography being more static then ever, as it works for really static.
Working more on sculpturing, wood, glass and so on..

    "When I came to flickr, Habaneros was the first person I considered to be a proper photographer, and he doesn't disappoint. His view of the world is all about controlled monochrome and distant observation, but there's always something tender and vulnerable in his work.

    Above all, this is an artist who shows a huge enthusiasm for the work of others. His input is invaluable.

    Finally, check out his ink work - is this not the coolest man on the planet?"

    "What can I say? I've not been inspired enough to write a testimonial for anyone else, but habaneros absolutely deserves a good one. We've been watching each other from the early days and I love how he's developed. Habaneros, your pictures make me smile often and think in equal measures. I'm very happy to have met you here in the flickr playground. I hope we play together for many more years x"

    "His captures are unique, creative and perfectly executed. Marco is one of my favorite Flickr contacts, and one of the few in my RSS-list. I admire the way he experiments, which pays off with one or more excellent postings every day. He even talked me into buying a Sigma 10-20 lens, one of my best buys in 2008!!"

    "When I visit Marco's stream I always find a photo that puts a smile in my face, one that is truly great, and on that is different. Three reasons to visit! His photos are full of passion, tenderness and fun, and I feel that his photos are a personal invititation of him to me to visit his world. Haba's stream is one of my favs in Flickr, and Marco one of my fav flikeefriends. XX"

    "I love habaneros’ pictures because they show perfectly his creativity, his love for photography and his sense of humor. He takes us by the hand and shows us his world; with all the lovely and sometimes weird details (like grumpy old men on bicycles!)
    And I think he’s a great guy! Warm and funny – his lovely comments and messages make me always smile! I’m very lucky that I’ve met him here at flickr! :-)"

    "Habaneros is a free-spirited, adventurous, loving individual. His photos take us on a walk through his life. He gives us glimpses of freedom, things that are cute, reality and himself. Take a look at his pages and find out where this "Hottest Little Pepper in the World" has been and what he's up to~"
