Life Keeps Us All Very Busy


The picture above is just a random photo from my library. This here is more of a diary entry, and not so much about the photo. Today I had to go on errands, I basically had a bit of paperwork and wanted to drop the paperwork at the authorities. I like it this way, because I let them copy the paperwork, and I won’t leave if I don’t get a date stamp on my original. In this world, where everyone wants to pee on your knees (as we say in Germany if someone wants to cause issues), it’s better to … Continue reading Life Keeps Us All Very Busy

Little League Photo Shooting


When all your friends and family members know that you are into photography, it sometimes happens that they ask you if you can shoot photos for them. That’s basically how I often got a chance to gain experience in portrait photography as well. As with everything, you have to learn it, by just doing it.

I had a theme installed back then where I didn’t need to upload photos, and that was fine because I was not totally into photography at that time. With my recent theme a photo for the post is always needed, that’s fine too, because now I am … Continue reading Musing About This And That – Part 1

Unexpected Snow


It’s that time again where a macro lens would make a lot of sense. However, I don’t own one yet, and I was outside today with my 18-105mm lens. Today when I woke up and when I watched out of the window, I didn’t expect to see snow. Why do I say this? Maybe because the year felt different, we didn’t have the hottest summer, but autumn didn’t start extremely cold either. My birthday was by the end of October, and it was strange because the temperature was still moderate. The October was pretty different. You can agree with the … Continue reading Unexpected Snow
