Ye olde Tomas here.

I am wondering. My intention of posting on this site is to strive to produce pictures that suites my own taste. I like to go an extra mile and climb stupidly op steep hills for THAT angle etc. Nowadays i dont do that anymore, have a drone for that, and a 3-year old boy to live for.
All the same i am wondering. Do you post just do dump 40 a day, or do you post just a few that you are proud of?

I am just wondering. I dont have anything to offer really. My pictures looks the same most of the time.

No die-hard budget, but not at all rich either.
