Taxiarchos228 (Wladyslaw)[edit]

Background

My name is Wladyslaw (born 1975), I am contributing to Wikipedia and related projects since August 2004. I have photographed years ago with an analog single-lens reflex camera (Fujica) and started 2004 with digital photography. As I realized that my compact camera does not fit my rising pretensions any more I have changed 2006 to a digital SLR. Currently I am using a Nikon D800.

• Here you can find detailed information about my equipment.

I like to photograph architecture, city-skylines and landscapes. Many of my buildings I picture are towers in all variations, e.g. bell towers of churches or television towers. But I am interesting in architecture in general starting at historical buildings and going to modern architecture. I am very interested in brutalist architecture and fascinated about the combination of concrete and steel.

For me it's charming and a nice challenge to detect interesting view points even of well-known buildings or landscapes and to show a new angle of vision as possible. And although I have contributed more than 4000 picture to this project my ideas for new pictures and motives does not end. There is a lot of work still waiting to have been done. ;-)
