lightmining – What’s that?

Light is the resource
Deposit exploring – I look for motifs
Mining raw materials – I take photos
Dumping raw materials – I save photos on disk
The photo is the product
Concentrating raw materials – The processing plant is the computer
Processing machines – Image editing software
The processed product is the picture


All pictures, panoramas, movies and the logo are done/created by Carsten Pechhacker. You are not allowed to use them unless you have a permission in written form. The logo shows the “hammer and pick” symbol in a circle with radial rays. It is a combination of the german mining symbol and a sun.
