It would seem that we are not too far apart! You never know, we might even meet someday! ;-)
Btw, I am German, so if ever you want to revisit your(and you must have acquired some) german language or share some Biers and Bratwurst, just let me know.
I have been watching your imagery here and elsewhere and admire your results. I hope to attain the same level of success with my E-P1 in the UK this coming May. Your images are inspiring particularly those taken in Brighton!!
Although I've posted comments on a number of your pictures, I just have to add my thanks to you here. Stunning images and I look forward to checking out the rest - as well as to what you bring to us in the future.
