I saw the light of life 1953 in The Netherlands; must have been one of those flash bulbs they used back then. Moved to Belgium in 1973 and worked in a steel factory for 35 years; taking pictures on the side. A few years ago I moved aside the factory and started a second life; almost completely dedicated to photography. I like to wander around with a purpose, the hunt for a photo enhances the electricity in the streets. My mpp (miles per photo) is rather high though, but liking to hold my camera makes it endurable; that’s why some mechanophilia might be involved too. Anyway, the doing and the outcome makes street photography a double goody.
