ermm, what do you think? is it the rock or the pop preset? the depths and the highs are definitely boosted...
some people represent the personalisation of self-confidence. regardless, of whether i like their doings, styles, apperances or whether there is a doubting soul underneath the cool exterior: just because of their bravery these people earn my respect.
of course, the closing winter wants to have fun for the last time. btw: there are also five new images in the glimpse gallery...
in berlin nothing is usual. have you ever enjoyed a building site view like the one above?
another street photograph, this day with participation of an animal. saw the flower pot - the abstraction of the net - and the blazing sun light. while looking and focussing through the holes in the bottom of the pot i additionally spotted the red berry, that represents, of course, the ball. finally the crossing kitty as the central figure completed the pretty funny composition.
do you still remember cloud spotting? while i was just searching the web for some information about this dreamy, childish activity, i stumbled upon an pretty funny startup, that deals with exactly this topic. depending on how one looks at it, i took part in the (desired) community today, although i dealt with ice instead of condensate, so to say with another phase of matter:
i for one went in for ice spotting. on my way home from a late afternoon walk i had kicked the above-shown piece of ice already two to three times, before i noticed its special structure after all. well, i must admit, that the iced character is not quite self-explaining, but if you use your imagination in full strength, you might see a figure '1' (with a little kink). for me it wasn't a coincidence, that i discovered the '1' (okay, maybe i wanted to see it):
yes, i'm a bit proud, but mainly amazed, how fast the time has gone. to be honest, there will be no dedicated flashbacks, summaries or canny answers at this place. therefor i'm far from being fed up with photography; additionally forward-looking seems to be more productive than summing things up every x steps. in my humble opinion my learning curve is still going up, on some points more, on some less. be sure, i'm going to work on my skills, with passion, fun and dedication.
at this point two more facts: although this blog is first of all a project of and especially for me, i want to thank each and every one of you, who reads, shares, comments on and delights in my images. almost 50k hits were counted during the last year... wow! and finally i want to renew my declaration of love to my camera: after more than ten months of daily usage, i can see, that
did you like the first year of dybydy-phtgrphy? and how about cloud spotting?
do we go the right, correct, aligned and indulgent way? this one way, that is mandatory if you want to venerate your counterpart? or is it a one-way, a non-returnable relationship between mankind and nature?
the image, i show you today, displays the status quo, how i perceive the current evolution. nature is present, we see it, sometimes. but nature is more than that - it is the centre and basis of everything. we consist of nature and we'll be morphed into nature again, anytime. but what does the mankind do? the humans tramp on the nature's beauty and overuse its precious regenerative properties.
this being the case, i admit, with my graphical representation of the cooperation between mankind and home planet i look a bit at the black side, whereas this portrayal intentionally makes a very pessimistic, alarming image.
if you are interested in the scenery - how i discovered the scene - by clicking here you will be guided to the two stops underexposed, non-processed jpg from raw and by clicking here you will see a non-graphical, classic interpretation of the scene. pretty boring, isn't it?
although today's story isn't about a separate business - like the title may suggest - we had to make use of one at the end of two hours of unresisted bathing in deep mud. at this season it is a common procedure that all the local (mountain) bikers wash their bicycles in the car wash in markdorf. this being the case, we didn't attract any attention yesterday, even though our heavily speckled appearance should have been extraordinary enough...
as long as the weather will stay that grey and misty, our sweet kitty nila won't leave the flat very often. as a consequence we have to look after and play with her more often than usual. even so we are easily able to tap into her cuteness.
