Biography

Hi,
and thank you so much for taking the time to look at my pictures, I really appreciate it! :-)

I live in Hamburg, Germany.
In 2014 I found photographing to be my newest hobby.

November 2011 a stroke left me physically handicapped, but luckily I recuperated the ability to use my right hand to handle the camera.

So again, thank you all for stopping by and taking the time to look at my pictures.

Take care!
Wolf

    Hi guys,
    this is just a quick hello to you all :-)
    Last few month I wasn't active on CAS, and to be honest: I don't know if I'll ever be again...
    It seems I have a total loss of inspiration, my cam is lieing aside, I just don't know what to do with it.
    And when I look around here I see so many pictures with so very interesting motifs, compositions, colors and contrast...
    I don't believe I can add to your images. But, this is not goodbye, just a phase I hope.
    Nevertheless, I seize the opportunity to thank you all for your comments and support, I wish you all good luck in the things of your lives!
    Take care everybody!

    Wolf ^_^

      I just found your photos, and I hope you will be back to post more soon. Meanwhile I'll look through some you've already posted. By the time I finish, this phase of your life might over and you will have picked up that camera again.

      It shows the dedicated perfectionist that you are. Phases are what phases are and they terminate - you'll "be back". Until then, alles Gute.

      Hey, was wondering where you went. I think we all go through these phases. I've been through many and was in one very recently. I signed up for an online photography class and that helped me become renewed. If you have not tried that before it might be helpful. Anyway, don't be too hard on yourself, my brother. Until next time, take care...

      I'm sorry to find this in your account. I thought I would see your excellent ones

      photos. Everyone has such moments without the desire to do anything. After the fall of the rocks, I had no desire for anything. But then the bad came. Staying at home without doing anything. Everyone laughed at me

      the camera that came alive after the incident is waiting for me, and I do not pay attention to it. I was totally disfigured, and it was scratch-free. So one day I impulsively grabbed her and went out. I hope you can do the same. Let Your Day Come.

      I'm sorry to hear that. We all have times of lack of inspiration, I know I certainly do. Hang in there.

      Hm, ich hatte mir schon Sorgen gemacht, dass es Dir evtl. gesundheitlich schlecht geht. Naja, eine solche Sinnkrise hat jeder einmal. Es ändert sich bestimmt wieder. Bis dahin alles Gute! :)

      As long as have have a camera you know it's there when you want to pick it up and use it, there's no rule saying you have to go out everyday and make pictures everyday

    Hi guys,
    the last few weeks have been a little stressful for me. I had really enervating muscle pain in the lower back and beyond, if you know what I mean... very much like sciatica :-/
    But know I think it's receding and I'll be more active on CAS.
    Cheers
    Wolf ^_^
