I found this forum on the internet while browsing for a place where I could post my photos and get some honest feed back on them, since I love to learn. When I was young I used to take mostly festival and concert photos. My camera was a Zenith with a tele lens. Now many many years later I picked back up my old hobby The object has changed though. My passion now is Macro photos of flowers and my cats The camera I use now is a Panasonic FZ1000 and a Raynox 250. So much has changed over those years and I am starting from scratch again I am on a super low budget (welfare, due to some illnesses). So no fancy gear for me and I try getting the most out of what I have. I live in the south of the Netherlands in a sweet colorful little house with a small garden. Gardening used to be a huge hobby but due to my health I had to cut back on that. My other hobbies are the computer and being creative. I used to do webdesign and make stationary, just for fun. A big passion is gaming. I played most big MMORPG's and enjoy exploring the fantasy worlds. At the moment I am back in Guildwars 2 and having lots of fun I believe it is the kid in me that has such a good time there and I wanna keep it that way I am a positive person who likes to learn a lot. Deep critical thinking is something I enjoy too Whenever I can I help or support my friends. I appreciate honesty, a sharp mind and good humor. Looking forward to your photos and your feedback *waves* Greetings Monika.
