My name is Tineke, and I live in a part of the Netherlands which is called "Waterland" and that's what it is, much water and ehh yes, there is land as well; have been born there, was raised there and still live there.
It is a beautiful part of the country, despite the mosquitoes which are attracted by the shallow water <G>.
In my younger days I used a SLR with film, but I did not know much about the tecnical details, however I could make nice compositions. And ofcourse I made my own prints of them in a dark room, had a pre for the softer papers.
Since the digital era I found the graphic design and editing programs fascinating, and was most happy to create lots of graphic artworks; later when I got a digital camera I started to turn my own photographs into small pieces of artwork.
I took lots of pictures of the flowers in my garden, but when I got my second digital camera, which has a much better lens, the landscape and scenery pictures are now very rewarding, and besides, it is good for my physical condition: I have to go out to "catch" that scenery <BG>
