Before I had studied Zen for thirty years, I saw mountains as mountains, and waters as waters. When I arrived at a more intimate knowledge, I came to the point where I saw that mountains are not mountains, and waters are not waters. But now that I have got its very substance I am at rest. For it's just that I see mountains once again as mountains, and waters once again as waters.

—The Way of Zen 126, Ch'ing-yüan Wei-hsin


What I do as a user[edit]

I upload pictures. Some years it's more, some years not as much. It all depends what's currently going on in my offline life. Here you can see my upload stats:

I have a few projects I'm working on - or used to work on - more systematically. I move from place to place from time to time so my effort is spread over a few countries such as Canada, Czech Republic, New Zealand, Slovakia or Spain:

What I do as an admin[edit]

I like deleting stuff - old categories, fair use material, unused blurry images of cats or copyright violation pictures. I believe that Commons is moving forward not only by adding files, but also by their removing.

Equipment[edit]

I enjoy any cameras. It's always a challenge to get to know a camera as good as you can and try to make the best out of it.

Cameras[edit]

  • Olympus FE170,X760 (2007-2008; my first camera, it ended up broken)
  • Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ38 (2010-2014; epic thing, given to my friend, still working in 2018)
  • Canon EOS 30D (2013; first DSLR, bought second-hand, a few things broken, sold shortly after buying)
  • Canon EOS 700D (Mar 2015 - Jan 2017; pretty good but I sold it, I was hiking and moving around a lot in that time and that thing was just too heavy to carry around)
  • Sony α6000 (since Jan 2017; great for travelling, quality vs weight is excellent)

Lenses[edit]

Equipment[edit]

  • Hoya 67mm Digital Slim CPL (Mar 2015 - Dec 2016; cracked at Mt Taranaki)

Software[edit]

  • GIMP (2010-2015; probably the best free Photoshop-like software you can get)
  • Adobe Lightroom 5.6 (since 2016; best thing on the planet for editing photos)
