All other photographs of this series of about 50 were taken by me, mostly with a cheap digital camera after 2003 (when i got my first digital camera). The photographs that have obviously been treated with Photoshop are the ones that were taken with the old (and even cheaper) camera. Some day i will go back and take better ones.
