Solitude

In my last post I told you about a part of my journey and how I discovered psychology as one of the central elements of my life. Well, this weeks Daily Post Photo Challenge Solitude couldn’t be more fitting to that post. Because it makes me think of my time in that Bavarian clinic. I…

Conquering Fear

When you’re doing something you love, it fuels you. It motivates you and it will challenge you to grow. Whenever we follow our heart / destiny / calling / whatever the right word might be for you, we will at some point have to grow, get out of our comfort zones, in order to get…

Abhainn Dhubh

As we were very lucky that day I was able to bring home this beautiful panorama from Calton Hill.It shows the northern part of the city and further across the Firth of Forth (gaelic: Abhainn Dhubh). This is the very first panorama I ever made, by the way. What do you think? I am also…

Hiding Jan van Eyck

Is this true? Should the fact that I am an actual Art Historian count for something at long last? I never thought this day would come! No, I’m exaggerating, of course. But I am glad that I can use some of that knowledge and share with you my admiration of one of the greatest artist…

Hazy High Time

This weeks Daily Post Weekly Photo Challenge is ‚time. Interpretations welcome

Letters from Edinburgh

I thought I’d have to sit this challenge out. I was so busy preparing the trip to Edinburgh – flights being cancelled and all – that I didn’t seem to have any ideas for the topic ‚Alphabet‘. Until we went to the Nelson Monument on Calton Hill where this picture was taken. So, here we…

Snow at last

Well no, not really. Sorry for fooling you. But sincere there is no snow, I thought of another way to capture weightlessness: a little snow man sitting in a mini version of a snow globe surrounded by a tiny snow storm. My entry to this week’s Photo Challenge.

Circles Interrupted

This week’s and this year’s first Weekly Photo Challenge is ‚circle‘. It is very fitting that this is one of the very first pictures I took this year. Disappointed by my unsuccessful fireworks endeavor I took to shooting other things that were at least, well, there. So here it is 😉 I start liking my tripod,…

2015 in Pictures and Now

in 2015 I got married to myself. One day before the end of the year I finally found the right ring! It stands for my individual motivation and my not fitting in a box. I found a new motif that I totally fell in love with and that gave me new motivation and ideas for…

Hypnot-eye-zed

When he’s got his eyes on you, you’ll do his bidding. My entry to this weeks Daily Post Weekly Photo Challenge ‚Eye-Spy‘. Enjoy more here!

Anticipated

I love abstract photography. The very first picture I posted on this blog was an abstract one. I haven’t done any abstract pictures for a while but when I was out during the first spring days, I felt like toying around with abstraction. So this weeks Daily Post Photo Challenge ‚Blur‘ was for me. Here…

Orange: Lust for Life

That’s actually what ‚orange‘ symbolizes: lust for life. Orange stimulates our second chakra located, the Sacral Chakra, which is located in the pelvic area. This chakra is our pleasure center and it links directly to feelings and emotions. Feeling alive means being able to feel – everything. The integration of every human feeling gives us Lust…

Guilty

Sorry, couldn’t resist 😉 Entschuldigung, ich konnte nicht widerstehen 😉

Light on!

Looks like someone left the light on! Sieht aus, als hätte jemand das Licht angelassen!

Lärche / Larch

One of my favourite trees! Einer der schönsten Bäume, meiner Meinung nach!

For the colour-starved

Such as me! I really love winter. I do, no questions asked. But I really do love all the seasons. I am so happy to live some place with four seasons. So naturally I love spring too. And this winter was so wonderful, that I am now happy to welcome spring. Now that colour starts…

Calling Daisy!

They were not the first this season. We did have wintry times, however in between those periods it was very warm and wet so some flowers and buds have been there all along. I just wasn’t in the spring-mood, still in winter-mood, so I overlooked them. But now, here they are 😉 Diese Gänseblümchen waren…

Good Excuses

This Challenge is a wonderful excuse to smuggle in some more Hydrangeas! Mea culpa 😉 Diese Challenge ist doch eine super Entschuldigung, noch ein paar Hortensien reinzuschmuggeln 😉
