Comments.

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on January 21, 2012 in Personal |

This afternoon the one thousandth comment made its way through my filters and hit the big world out there. That is, the one thousandth comment that someone has been kind enough to leave here, on my small Blog, after reading one of my posts and being inspired to spend a few seconds typing something in […]

Expanding The View.

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on January 21, 2012 in Personal |

In case you haven’t noticed it, my small Blog seems to have become a little bit more serious this year; not that erotic subjects aren’t serious, but I am taking one of my New Year resolutions fairly seriously, and that is to look around a bit more and see what else is going on in […]

They Can Touch.

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on January 20, 2012 in News & Opinion |

I caught an interesting meme this afternoon which seems to sum up the present political climate in the United States quite effectively. It is a very simple one, but shows considerably more background than many people may wish to think about. Over the last few years we, as citizens, have let our political masters rule […]

Sensible Censorship?

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on January 19, 2012 in Internet |

Something interesting happened yesterday, not the SOPA / PIPA blackout, which is interesting in its own right, but a different form of censorship which caused me – and several others on Google Plus – to pause and think. It concerns two photographs, one taken by Imogen Cunningham in the 1920s and one by Minor White […]

Not Blacked Out.

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on January 18, 2012 in Internet |

No, this weblog isn’t blacked out today, but that doesn’t mean I am a supporter of SOPA or PIPA or that I ever will be. A country such as the United States of America which wishes to claim that it supports Freedom of Expression, Freedom of Speech and many, many other Freedoms cannot, at the […]

Being Subtle.

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on January 17, 2012 in Personal |

Anyone can write, but not everyone can write what other people wish to read. Not everyone can write works which will stay in the reader’s mind. Few can write in such a manner that their words cause the reader to pause, to think, to create a mental image, to truly appreciate language. Despite a recent […]

Frost.

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on January 16, 2012 in Personal |

Did I mention that I got up really early yesterday, grabbed my camera and charged out to a local forest to catch frost on the trees? That the frost was only on the ground and the trees had nothing on them at all – except old dead leaves, that is? Today, as the temperature dropped […]

First Attempt.

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on January 15, 2012 in Personal |

Trying something new is the spice of life, without it we turn to dust – or, at least, our minds do. So I was more than a little excited to have a chance to do a small photographic project for a friend who collects old photographs and cameras. Nothing special, just for the insurance, but […]

An Old Cherokee Legend.

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on January 15, 2012 in Personal |

Fine, so you’ve probably come across this many times before, but it is worth reading and thinking about again and again. I saw it this morning on Google Plus and have shamelessly copied it: An old Cherokee is teaching his grandson about life. ‘A fight is going on inside me,’ he said to the boy. […]

When is a Rant …

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on January 14, 2012 in News & Opinion |

What was once seen as a clear and carefully thought out opinion piece of events in the world is now, with the overpowering presence of the Internet, nothing more than a rant. That seems to be the opinion of some people, especially when they don’t necessarily agree with what is being written, what they are […]
