MY PHOTOGRAPHIC HISTORY
__________________________

My photographic history started around the early sixties, in fact the time I spent about one year volontary in military service in previous Netherlands New Guinea (now Papua-West New Guinea), starting October 1961.
The camera I used there was a Topcon which I bought second hand from a collegue.

Later-on I switched-over onto a Fujica ST-701 and bought in 1977 a 135 mm. objective in the then famous shopping-mall "Peoples Park" in Singapore during a trip through Indonesia and Malaysia in 1977 as I left a bit of my "roots" in S.E.Asia during my army-time in New Guinea and also caused by my living in the fifties in Holland in between various "Spijtoptanten" (Indo people)-neighbours. (Indos in colonial history)

During the sixties, seventies and a part of the eighties I shot mostly dia-positive photos (color slides) but also some color-negative photos.

When I started working for Minolta in the Netherlands I started using first the Minolta XD-7 which came just on the market and later the X-700.

My "photo-production" collapsed unfortunately after my emigration from my native-country Holland to l'Escala, North-Spain (Catalonia) in 1988. This periode lasted 15 years. In 2004 certain circumstances enabled me to start again which resulted gradually in a yearly expansion with a boom starting around 2005 when I was so fortunate, and grateful about that, to be able to travel around some countries in S.E.Asia, starting with Singapore, Kuala Lumpur, Indonesia (where I were already in 1977) and the Philippines.

My first (digital) start was with a Konica C35-AF which I lost unfortunately and in 2006 I started using my first digital SLR-camera, a Dimage, (a Minolta of course), bought in the photo-shop of my first and best friend in Spain, Joan Ibañez Alcalá, in Torroella de Montgri. Due to very poor service-facilities of Minolta in Thailand I had to switch-over onto Canon and started with a EOS 400D and switched later over to a EOS 450D. As I was lots of times using the camera during evening-hours and could not use a flash I had to switch-over onto a EOS 7D which can be used upto ASA (ISO) 6.400 and even higher. However, I miss my Minolta very much and sometimes I'm questioning myself if I better switched-over to Nikon.

My goal is starting trying to give more explanation / links with the photos / galleries and to avoid photo-dump which, however, is making the album partly a blog.
