About Paul Bica

Hi, my name is Paul and I've been with flickaholic anonymous since 2007. joined it, as opposed to other social networks, because "some people have a way with words... some people... not have way"

I got the first digital camera in 2004 and became addicted after I bought my dslr (e3) in may 2008. I'm an amateur and I use photomatix for hdr and photoshop for orton (amateur in that I never took a course and I do this out of pure pleasure and absolutely no pressure :)

my images are free with the most flexible license available: attribution - creative commons (can be used anywhere just give me credit with a link to my stream)

ps. just wanted to thank all people who told me where and how they used my images :) out of the thousands of sites I found them in use there wasn't ONE context I didn't appreciate (some didn't relate much but I understand the images were used to make them less dry)
