I don´t have nightmares, I create them!


I was a little bit bored today and sometimes if you are bored, then it might be a good idea to go through own photo material or photoshop project´s and so. And it was a good idea because I found one lolcat meme which I thought needs a little improvement. I disliked the clearly visible reflection on the eye of my cat. I also thought that it would be funny to change the eye color with a more aggressive green colour value. I am not a photoshop professional but removing a reflection with the stamp tool or changing the colour … Continue reading I don´t have nightmares, I create them!

Aquarium fishes introduced: Boraras brigittae


My favorite fish for fishkeeping is the Mosquito Rasbora. This is a gorgeous little fish. You can see them in my fish tank in the video above, swimming near the water surface, seeking for food and enjoying the flow of water near my self-build filter and pump. The Moskito Rasbora is also called Boraras brigittae (scientific name). This is a pretty tiny fish (1-3 cm depending on their age) and great for smaller fish tanks. The fish tank in the video above for example contains just 60 liters of water. I have round about 15 Mosquito Rasbora´s in my fish … Continue reading Aquarium fishes introduced: Boraras brigittae

We used the Barbecue Grill again…


My mother and her husband invited me on Wednesday again for a barbecue. At the end of april we had our first barbecue of 2013. But this week we had our second barbecue. And it was again very tasty. We grilled paprika spiced pork meat for example. This meat was so delicious even without dip. I did eat them with and without dip. We also ordered a salad for each of us. Usually my mother would create the salad but it was pretty late to get cucumbers or tomatoes. We ordered the salad from the Kebab Store where the husband … Continue reading We used the Barbecue Grill again…

Weekly Photo Challenge: Pattern


The photo above is my contribution to the “Weekly Photo Challenge: Pattern“. I took the photo in the St. Marien Church in Lübeck when my me and my mother walked through the Historic Downtown of Lübeck. The church is like most churches in Lübeck pretty huge. I am not so religious but anyway interested in culture and I count the churches of Lübeck to culture and that is why I still like to take photos of them. Because they show what kind of great brick gothic architecture, you can find in my city. Here are two more photos… Continue reading Weekly Photo Challenge: Pattern

Never Mess Around With Me. I´m a Lolcat!


The son of my mother´s husband did send me a pretty good photo of his cat. The overall quality of the image was not that great but I changed the image to black and white with Photoshop because I know that this effect can improve the quality of slighty overexposed photos. I also added a little bit more contrast and also made some gamma corrections. I think the photo is now a little bit more respectable. He caught his own cat in the right moment. His cat gave a yawn and looks like he took the photo in the right … Continue reading Never Mess Around With Me. I´m a Lolcat!
