Selfies: The Camera Is Dead, Long Live…

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on March 30, 2015 in Photography |

In theory everyone who takes a self-shot, a selfie, uses a smart phone. That is what the manufacturers want us to believe, and that is what we mostly see out on the streets, in front of tourist sites and near to major catastrophes, fires and traffic accidents. The figures show that camera sales are dropping, […]

The Downside Of Dreaming

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on March 29, 2015 in Immoral Conversations |

There are some dreams you simply do not want to remember when waking up, some dreams which make you break out in a sweat, leave you exhausted and confused. As a child I often had nightmares, fragments of which remained – and remain – in my memory. As an adult I have almost no bad […]

Is Yahoo Killing Flickr?

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on March 26, 2015 in Internet |

I go visit Flickr every day, not just to see whether other people have shown any interest in my photographers, more to see what other photographers have posted. There are many quite exceptional photographers who use the Yahoo service, and have been using it for many years. Here I can gain inspiration as much as […]

The Art Of Building Bridges

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on March 23, 2015 in News & Opinion |

I am sometimes at a loss to understand the mentality of those who put something off, or seek out an alternative, in order to save money in the short-term, knowing full well that a long-term solution must be found. There are two wonderful instances of this form of money-saving in our local area at the […]

Testing Security

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on March 18, 2015 in Internet |

Security on the Internet, as we all should know, is of the utmost importance. No one wants to lose all their hard work, their posts, images, their public face to someone else. So I am more than pleased to see that someone from Pervouralsk in the Russian Federation (IP 31.28.97.238 under the host 238.97.28.31.interra.ru) has […]

What To Call My SO?

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on March 12, 2015 in Personal |

Relationships are so complicated, sometimes it is difficult to know what to say, what to write, especially when you’re trying to preserve a small amount of privacy. So far I have been successful, keeping most if not all of my private life out of the ‘public eye’, as far as the Internet is concerned. No […]

People Are Strange

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on March 11, 2015 in News & Opinion |

If anyone anywhere believes that the strangest creature on this small green planet is not the human, then I am sorry to have to tell them that they’re very naive! There is no doubt in my mind that the world would be a very dull place if people weren’t so strange, and a lot of […]

Analogue Photography: On The Streets

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on March 9, 2015 in Photography |

I was pleasantly surprised that this image, of two homeless men reading in the Lloyd Passage in Bremen, worked. One of the things that has always bothered me about taking photographs is the noise a shutter makes. I always have the impression that it is very loud, perhaps simply because I am right next to […]

Analogue Photography: The First Attempts

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on March 8, 2015 in Photography |

A few days ago I mentioned that my first attempts at analogue photography have come back from the developer, and promised that I would post a few of the results here. As an absolute beginner, and teaching myself by ‘doing’ rather than just by reading, it is something of an eye-opener to see what really […]

Things Are Looking Up

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on March 5, 2015 in Personal |

Another brief pause, but only because I have so much to do at the moment: college is not as easy as some believe! I have my first analogue photos back from the developer – I’m not quite so experienced to develop my own yet – and with some very good results. I’ll be posting a […]
