Augenweide,

The best translations of your username I've been able to find are :" Obsession for the Eyes", "Feast for the Eyes", "Fascination for the Eyes" !
And what fascination, feast, obsession when I see such a beautiful self-portrait (also the self-portrait of a beautiful man), self-portrait which will always surpass any attempt at painting it !!!!!
I could compare you to Henry Fonda in "Once Upon a Time in the West", or to "Crocodile Dundee", but none of your photographs refers to the Old West or the Outback! It's just the hat (where can one find such a hat in Germany?!), this unshaved, weather-beaten, ruggedly handsome face and this distant look that really seems to be searching for himself !
You could have been that man who rode the horse with no name (link You Tube: America - A Horse with no Name)(too many good versions to make a direct link).
However, you are none of that fancy out of control imagination... you are well anchored in your beautiful Northern Germany and I assume most of your great photos were taken in that area. I can't reallly have a favourite (except this portrait) as they all are so beautiful, whether it be a flower or a sunset !
I'm not an artist but love to look at art... what stopped me while glancing through the photograph section was your portrait ... does that mean that I selected your work because I fell in love with your looks... I don't know, it could be ! (which isn't necessary a compliment).
Anyway, you are the artist that many people would not only admire as an artist but would also love to hug (we'll say, "as an artist").

Thanks for responding so gently, Augenweide... You do such an admirable work --and you seem to never rest ! I've particularly appreciated lately "Red", "Mother Earth" & the "DarkArt". Congratulations !
