Short story “Childhood fears”

From the darkness men arise. With the lights on, they’re invisble. But as soon as the light switch is flipped, I can see them. They move. Never did I let them come closer, since turning on the lights drives them back to their shelters, instantly. Watching me constantly, they hide in the clothes that are […]

My passion for photography resulted in being a professional photographer for some years. Ultimately, I chose to fully commit to my job as a consultant, while keeping photography as one of my favourite hobbies. Combining them whenever I can.
