Hello, Grüezi, Tag wohl, Hoi, Salü, Salut, Ciao, Allegra, Bun Di, Hallo, Guten Tag!
Welcome to Switzerland backstage!
I'm not an artist of photography and image editing. I watch the life to catch the moment or to document somewhat of interest. Informations are important to me and there is no picture in my stream without title and description. It is not only about beautiful photos. It is also about knowledge and informations, survived in any way and could be lost.
The mischief began in 2005 when I bought a small digital camera just to test flickr. I had used an analog SLR before. To have the camera always with me in daily life, it was not possible to use a DSLR. Thank God the small cameras were getting better and my pictures too.
I comment if I have something to tell or if something is really exceptional, and not to generate clicks and comments. The content and natural effects are more important to me, as some artistic gimmickry. I also collect not thousands of images in my favorites, but things that have a meaning to me.
Thanks to all my followers, but please appreciate that I can not add all of you to my contacts.

Psst... when there are no geotags and not an accurate description, it may be that it is still under military secrecy. Perhaps these images will gain a historical significance not until later.
My account is safe. I'm not a prude and think that nudity is something natural. The limits that I set for myself in Flickr are out of consideration for people with other morals and children.
So please don't comment, add me as a contact or one of my photos as your fave, if you have explicit nudity in your pictures or other faves. Erotic in bikini is ok.
There are people who do not have their own photos and only search for pictures with sexual and erotic content. Please come and look but do not more. That's also the reason, why some people are blocked by me.
Beware of trolls. The name Kecko is used by me only in this account and in a swiss Army Forum. Nowhere else!
You can't have everything, but you can give everything.
Der Name Kecko wird von mir nur in diesem Account verwendet und im Forum von Festung-Schweiz. Sonst nirgendwo!
