In my spare time, I am an amateur photographer.

The picture that shows Alex breathing fire is the only one I ever entered into a photo contest. It came out runner-up and actually made it onto the cover of Mensa Spezial issue No.180, a small magazine mainly about what's for lunch at the cafeteria of the University of Göttingen. They must have had spicy food that month.

Online Portfolios

Many of my older pictures are still found in my portfolio. Since has become quite restrictive as to how many pictures you may store on the site, I started putting new ones on instead. also has the disadvantage of JPEGs being compressed too far, making some pics appear blurry. On the other hand, it's still a great community (albeit old-fashioned from a Web technology standpoint).

Be sure to look at the New Zealand gallery. vi improved
