about me

Since childhood I like to observe. In 1975 the camera P1060712                                             became a helping friend in observing.   As a scientist in human behaviour my professional life is committed to  people with hindrances of life, together seeking answers and hope.  As a free time amateur photographer I am equally angled to explore a world of hope and beauty,  not showing its hindrances. Since repeating pictures of beauty have a tendency to get boring, it is a challenge to present inspiring ones.  Not often succeeding I keep trying.       Both the succes and the trying give fun.

about the gallery-name:                                                                                               The Lumix camera L1 from Panasonic inspired me going fully                                        to digital photography. Panasonic made more wondrous machines                              like the Lumix LC1, GX7, and GM5. As a tribute to those great                                   little lumixes this site is called LumenCamera.
