Since childhood I like to observe. In 1975 the camera 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.
