Intro
Born in Helsinki, Finland, during World War II and sent (by air - less than one year old) to Sweden, where I grew up in Kalmar on the east coast. Now living in the city of Lund in the formerly Danish part of Sweden, which is known as Skåne or (in English) Scania.

Retired ATCO since 2003-07-01 (see my ATC Towers theme).

Most evenings you'll find me at the Espresso House in downtown Lund - just opposite the main railway station. Go have a look!

"It's not the equipment that makes the photographer."

My visits to TrekEarth nowadays are occasional and most certainly at random...

I've closed my TrekLens account 2009-03-25 and
I'm not active on TrekNature at all.
