It all started when I was 11 years old and bought a second-hand  Dacora Super Dignette from Walter's Studio and Camera Store. Walter took the time and effort to take me through all my first rolls of film, picture-by-picture, explaining to me what was good and what was not so good - both in composition and in exposure. I still have those precious black and white negatives from then. A few years later followed a used Porst Reflex S (:Topcon Wink Mirror S) SLR which followed me throughout high school and then died rather suddenly at the time I went to university. Money was low so, no camera for the next many years....

Fifteen years later, I had a second start when I fulfilled another dream and purchased a Vixen Polaris R-100L 4" astronomical telescope. I just had to try some astrophotography also and thus followed a Pentax K1000 and a Tamron catadioptric tele lens. I loved those three gadgets (still have them after 25 years) and swore, I should never have anything automatic. I wanted to be the one who took the pictures - not the camera! But about 10 years later, I had surgery for cataract on both eyes and for years both before and after, I couldn't focus a thing.

So, the third start came when, driven by the bitter needs, I asked for and got an automatic 1.3 megapixel (Olympus C-900 Zoom) digital camera as a birthday present --- and thereby discovered the world of digital dark room possibilities and the fascination by simple image processing. And this then, is what these pages are to be about......
