Hello you all.....my real name is Simone, friends call me Mona .
I've always loved to take pictures from animals and nature,those are my favourites....Altough in 1994 more than 20 years ago,I started with evening classes art academy,have done this 4 years,so many years back,there was only black and white photographic.....no digital either! I've done some little exposes also,but it came to an end due to circumstances! Taking pictures was over! I haven't done anything anymore,untill 10 years ago,I started to make photo's of landscapes, 3 years ago I bought my zoom lense, and started with birds...butterflies...animals and so on ,not on a regular base....only now and than. I've never used photoshop or lightroom,only Picasa from Google,but google took Picasa out ! At the moment I'm looking for a another site to put my photo's on,haven't found one yet? I prefer to work without too much help from other programs.....as I would have the feeling that my photo was made by the computer instead of with the camera! Guess it's because during my education all was mind and handwork :-)
.As I'm new here I'll have to find out how everything works.....Wish you all succes with your pictures....have already seen some very beautiful ones!
P.S. Sorry,I didn't post new pictures because I've been very sick,had surgery this month also ! Since many years I'm suffering from an auto-immuun disease,and it got worse the past months,so haven't been able to go out and take picture,just hope to be better soon,although there's no cure for my disease.....
P.P.S. Thanks to the people who take time to look at my pictures,thanks also for the lovely comments you've given,it's truly appreciated!!!
