But being on a homeground there, taking pictures can calm you down as well as build a wall between you and the environment. You can by lifting the camera to your eye submerge in to a different world.

Digital Photography has come a long way in my lifetime and I still do not consider me half way through it. I first got my hand on a digital camera back in school. It was 1993 and my teacher showed it to me with a smile. I took it for a ride.

No swimming please

Once in a while you get an idea. Then there is nothing you can do but be irritated until that idea either flops or functions.

Arty Book shelf and books in a cafe in Reykjavik Iceland

It is my image and it is my decision what I do with it so shut the fuck up! was a response I got when trying to discuss the matter and complications of CC with some young Photographers. This is probably the most stupid response to the matter I have ever heard. Here is why?
