My name is Tord S Eriksson, and I am soon 60, and have worked in media and logistics most of my life - just now I'm a bus driver, but I've been editor-in-chief, junior AD, technical illustrator, editor, firefighter, security guard, Arts teacher, et cetera. My hobbies concern things that fly (aircraft, model airplanes, birds) and float (folding kayaks, paddling, rowing, sailing, & model boats), editing, writing, reading, illustrating & photography. I like a good wine, and cooking. Not very orderly, more the creative type, like computers, but a real dummy at programming! While my wife got a Micro4/3rd system, while I have two slightly bigger cameras (Pentax K-x & K-7), and three smaller. I am very endeared by her E-PL1, and all its tiny lenses. So maybe soon ... Been photographing since a was a young kid (first came a Kodak Brownie Starlet), got my first SLR kit when I was 16 (an Edixa Reflex, a M42 system made in West-Germany, with lots of lenses and other stuff, when my sister's boyfriend upgraded to Hasselblad), and after a while I had two bodies (the second was a Mamiya), five lenses, and a lot of other gear, but the weight was BIG problem. Eventually, I switched to ultra-compacts - the lovely Minox 35s - which I used daily for many, many years, till I wore them down, then Polaroids & Konica Big Mini compacts. After I married my Ann-Christine I entered the new, thrilling, then unknown, field of digital compacts! First came a Konica KD-500 (more or less digital version of Konica's Big Mini), then followed a number of other compacts, from Olympus (the famous C-8080 - still superb with a flash on!), Minolta (a jazzed-up Konica KD-500, lost at sea), Fujifilm (S9000 - recently sold), and a Kodak A580 - my everyday camera. The wife bought a few of her own, of course: a Olympus 725SW, followed by a Nikon P5100, then, this year, the E-PL1 (full kit) and finally the Sony DSC-TX5 - a high-tech wonder - and the Panasonic Lumix FZ38, as a complement to her E-PL1, as there are, as yet, no long teles for the m4/3s. My wife's first husband had a photo studio, so she knows her cameras, sand I am a university-trained photographer, even if I haven't worked as such, except taking a few photographs in connection to interviews and reportages.
