I came to flickr.com because of a coincidence. I read an article in a magazine and simply checked this site out.
Then I saw the possibilities and the potential of sharing photos. I like exchanging thoughts and opinions on basis of photos. Everyone can show his world and others can take part in it.
The quality of those pics is overwhelming. People don´t only show their holiday-pics, they perform a special way of art. Most of the pics I saw on flickr "want so say something" or have got a deeper intention which has to be discovered by the spectator. Some people combine their photos with poems or "warm words".
The fact, to klick on every place on earth in a second, search special things or communicate with good photographers makes flickr my favorite website I ever visited.
Now I´m going deeper and deeper to discover the best photos the world has to offer. I´ll try to contribute my part to that whole system. With my camera, a Nikon D80, every door stands open to do that. (I think) You will help me to reach that goal by giving me tips, comments, critics and praises.
The last months I learned lots of techniques, skills, point of views, photographic laws leading how to come to the "PERFECT SHOT".

Additionally I´m an absolute NYC-Fan.For me this is the best, nicest and friendliest city I ever knew. Every free minute I have, I fly over the Atlantic Ocean to place my feet on Manhattan´s ground. ;-) NYC also is a very cool, maybe the best place to take good urban photos. Some people call it an alive stage... -> I totally agree to that...

"There is only you and your camera. The limitations in your photography are in yourself; for what we see is what we are."

Now, the world of photos is waiting, let´s conquer it... ;-)

    "Christian was one of the first persons i met when joining flickr. When starting flickring and you got no plan what to do, where are the places to be...it is nice to have a helping hand: Hughes500 was it to me. Also he gave me some real good inspirations with his work. He is not one of the mainstream Photo-Takers, he got inovative ideas which makes it a real pleasure to walk in his stream.

    He also helped me with many questions on how to do something. Hughes500 is a inner part of flickr to me, i will watch his work in future and i know that also critical comments are accepted.

    Only negative thing to say is that Christian has reduced his work in the last weeks...hope to see more shots from you!"

    "After a recent trip to NY I was searching Flickr for photos of the places I had seen when I came upon Hughes500's photos. They seem to capture the very essance of the city I had briefly seen but quickly loved.

    He has an eye to capture the grandiose without losing the humanity of the city. To quote him, "[New York] is so many sided, multi-cultural and individual, has so much to offer and to discover". I'm sure he will continue to search, uncover, and share all the this beautiful city has to offer."
