Individual Delivery

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on December 31, 2014 in Photography |

I have a very interesting situation at the moment, and one which could take a few more days to clear up. As many of you will know, I have decided to try my hand at photography with a real, film camera. From this fact you will have worked out that I require films, fortunately easy […]

Falling For The Sucker Punch

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on December 30, 2014 in Internet |

I wonder whether this really works, whether people really get in touch with the sender of the original mail – thus confirming their address – or even try to upgrade their accounts. I can imagine some people might, if they don’t read beyond the first few words, and they might even attempt an upgrade of […]

Seeing The World In Black And White

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on December 28, 2014 in Photography |

The plan today was to go out with my small selection of cameras and start learning. The results of this learning process will take quite a while to come through, since the films have to be developed first, but there is always a digital back-up just in case. The plan meant that I was allowed […]

Hardly A Spare Moment

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on December 27, 2014 in Personal |

It would be easy enough for me to sit down, when I have a spare few hours, and simply write one post after another, backdating them for the days that I have missed out this month. I could come up with all sorts of tales, comments, opinions, general stuff to fill the white spaces, and […]

Facts And Figures: Camera Usage On Flickr

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on December 22, 2014 in Internet |

If you ever happen to take a glance at Flickr, a once higher popular photographic community recently taken over by Yahoo!, you will notice firstly that it hasn’t been abandoned by all the good photographers simply because of the change of ownership and, secondly, the selection of photographic works available there can be outstanding, inspiring, […]

Despite The Weather, Trying New Things

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on December 21, 2014 in Personal |

Having neglected my camera for far too long, I decided that today would be a good day to get out into the wilds of northern Germany – but not too far into the wilds! – and see what can be seen. I must admit, though, that my plan was – and is – a little […]

Work Experience: Experiencing Work

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on December 20, 2014 in Personal |

You would imagine, I have no doubt, that it is easy to find a position for someone to learn a job if the company providing the job experience was required to pay no wages. It’s rather like the Intern system we have in the United States: a student comes in, gets all the rubbish jobs […]

And There She Was, Gone.

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on December 19, 2014 in Personal |

I don’t know about hundreds, but maybe one or two have wondered where I’ve been for the last few days or so. Usually I’m fairly active on the Internet, with an almost guaranteed post here each day and visits to other social media sites at all hours of the day and night. Despite my keen […]

How Other People See Me?

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on December 3, 2014 in Immoral Conversations |

Here in the West it is a sign of affluence, of power, of having made it in society: a good cigar. Taken after dinner with a sniffer of brandy, sitting in your leather armchair in the club lounge, there is nothing more relaxing after a hard day’s work delegation. Why, then, did someone suggest today […]

Stop And Frisk: An Assumption Of Guilt

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on December 2, 2014 in News & Opinion |

I was asked a strange question today, one which was designed to reflect on me as an American and on American society as a whole. The fact that it backfired with me makes no difference, I am not the same as others, it saddened me that such a question should be posed at all. If […]
