My Bio

A képeim / My Gallery ( <--- kattints rá! / click it!)

I am taking photographs for decades, started at the age of 6. I had several film cameras from pocket ones to SLRs, owned many and borrowed even more. I assisted the rise of digital photography: my first digital camera has an awesome max resolution of 320×240 px. It is most probable that as a shop assistant, I sold the very first digital camera in Hungary. (Unproven!) Sometimes I draw, either digitally or by hand. I am not that good in it, though. Since 2018 I picked up analog photography once again, and I am still learning to use dark room techniques but collected several cameras to #shootfilmstaypoor and I have the tendency to enjoy using definitely difficult equipment. I often use a catadioptric 500mm f/8 Nikon lens on my Canon DSLR that has depth of field shallower than a sheet of paper and a Mamiya/Sekor 528TL that is considered one of the worst camera of all time simply because its sheer complexity. Nevertheless it is the final result that counts: the image.

Note: I have some eye difficulties, and the small texts on the screen sometimes give trouble. While I am a grammar nazi, I frequently make typos, just because I don't actually see the individual letters. I apologize for these mistakes.

I am founding member of Hungarian Tolkien Society, and I am established Tolkien fan. I was founder editor of KEMET, once most popular Egyptology site of Hungary, and study ancient Egypt since 1999 or so. There are very few things that I cannot relate to Egypt.

I am fluent in Hungarian and somewhat in English, babbling a bit in Italian, learning some Spanish and French, picking up a bit of Cymraeg (dw i'n hoffi dysgu Cymraeg!) and know some words in German.

Bill Biggart is dead. Today is the 20th anniversary of his death. He was one of the thousands who were killed by the collapsing skyscrapers. Bill Biggart shouldn't have been there, but he was a kind of news junkie. He worked as a press photographer in N.Y. and as soon as he learned about the first attack against WTC he hurried home for his cameras and headed to the site. All his high end EOS 1 cameras were found ripped open by the debris but he had one more camera, that worked without film. Yes, it was digital, one of the earliest DSLR-s that were something futuristic. The little and rudimentary but expensive EOS D30 was smashed, too, but its CF card was something promising. Biggart's widow gave it to his friend and colleague, Chip East who could rescue some images from the beaten card. Respecting Biggart's and Estate of Bill Biggart's rights I won't put any sample here but a link to the Estate's memorial page. Perhaps it is a due act of honor and respect for him and also for

I am back! (?) It was almost a year that I vanished from DA, or DA got me out, I don't know. I simply couldn't log in with my well proven credentials. I didn't have enough time to give it try over and over again, but sometimes I took a chance—and now, after a browser update, voila, I am in. So beware, I plan to be frequent around here again!
