Presentation during the '11. Limeshainer Naturfototreff'
Today in Erlensee (Germany) the 11th 'Limeshainer Naturfototreff' shall take place where I am now invited for the second time to give a presentation. My presentation will also be shown today, but unfortunately without me. Due to illness, I am still not able to travel to Erlensee and to presenting my original presentation 'Images which tell stories'. Instead of this presentation you will see my (matching with this title) audio-visual presentation 'From pool attendants and aristocrats, animal life in the Falkland Islands'. I hope that everyone enjoy this and I wish all of you who is present at the festival, a good day with lots of inspiration! (Program Limeshainer Naturfototreff)
