Photography has been an obsession since I was 13 years old and went off to Italy clutching my mother’s 1940s roll film camera. I’ve been fooling with computers since I bought an Amiga 1000 back in 1985. My first chunky pixelized images were digitized into that machine using a black and white CCTV camera. At last, with today’s software and hardware I feel that I can create the images I see in my mind’s eye. Visit my website at

    Danke, aber nein! Ein bischen später, vielleicht um halb sieben. Ich brauche noch einmal Kaffee. Schwartz vie meine Seele!

    Congratulations on your features. I like the lighting effects but it’s a shame about the Merlin engine!

  • Haha, no time for coffee now, black or otherwise, you got to hit the skies and kill the Schweinehund Englisch!

    Thanks very much for a great comment Colin, sorry about the Merlin but it wasn’t my fault :-)
