For me photography is an art form as well as a hobby. I find it fascinating how people's auras can change in pictures. Every photographer sees you differently and I particularly enjoy being in front of the camera and then seeing the great results afterwards.
We've got a lot of old records and we spent a few days picking out all the interesting covers. We then tried to come up with a good background to display them on. But the process itself was great fun!
At the grand old age of 79, I'm still on the lookout for some great snapshots.
Even though the photo looks like a successful snapshot (which it is meant to, after all), there was a great deal of patience behind it. I was actually out and about hunting for good photos, taking advantage of the good light on this sunny day, and I spent a little while watching the ducks and swans.
The "Carnival of Cultures", which is always celebrated over the Whit Weekend, has been held in Berlin for many years. The event came about as a result of the increasing levels of immigration of people from all corners of the world. Today there are around 450,000 foreign nationals living in Berlin.
