About Me

Me? My name is Wolfgang Ploenes, born in Uerdingen,Krefeld,Germany,1952 and raised on the Lower Left Rhine.


He who can arrange stones and stumble over them, is successful in holography.

The result is perfect and bright. But testing has to be carefully cause the film is a bit expensive.
