Photographs worth looking at…

Everybody takes pictures. Some take thousands, others take very few. Some take pictures using their smartphone, others use high end equipment worth thousands of dollars. Whatever gadget you use, photographs can be virtually anything: astonishing, fascinating, breathtaking, amazing, shocking, horrible, disgusting, funny, …you name it. Since I love taking pictures, I make sure to take my camera (a rather cheap one by the way) wherever possible, especially when I travel. Here are some of my favorite photographs. I am nowhere near being a photographer, but I think it´s worth taking a look. See for yourselves…
