Terrorism: The Years Ahead

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on December 31, 2015 in News & Opinion |

The players have changed, but their methods remain the same: attack, destroy, confine, maim, rape. It has never been, and never will be, simply a case of attacking with guns and bombs; the fear of attack must also be sown; the constant worry that the streets are no longer safe; the realization that we, as […]

Language: Do You Understand?

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on December 30, 2015 in Immoral Conversations |

It is a fact of life, and one which I have come to accept, that not everyone understands what you are trying to communicate. There are language barriers everywhere, not just between countries and cultures, which are seemingly impossible to overcome. I accept, for example, that the vast majority of people I meet, bordering on […]

Flickr: Not Fulfilling The Promises

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on December 29, 2015 in Internet, Photography |

The idea behind social media and social networks is to share: you live your life and let everyone out there, in Internet-land, who might possibly have an interest, experience all those wonderful things which have happened in your life. In reality no one gives a hoot, they just want a good follower / friend ratio […]

Photography: Walking The Back Streets

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on December 27, 2015 in Photography |

When I got up this morning, later than usual, but it is a Sunday, the weather looked reasonably good. That is, not perfect, but not quite raining. The day promised to be cloudy, reasonably warm – or hot, for December – and with enough good, natural light to make a trip out with my cameras […]

Bored During The Festive Season?

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on December 25, 2015 in Immoral Conversations, Internet |

It’s that time of day when the turkey, goose, tofu-concoction or whatever you’ve had for your festive meal is cleared away, all the presents have been opened, and everyone is thinking either about going back home, switching on the television, or just disappearing from the memories of another seasonal mess. What do you do when […]

Photography And Reporting: Choosing The Right Image

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on December 22, 2015 in Internet |

There is an art to choosing the right image for a certain occasion, one which requires forethought, insight and an ability to communicate beyond words. Some can do it, pick out the right image, and some take the short route hoping, perhaps, that no one will notice their laxity. Screenshot Source: Daily Caller / Twitter […]

Someone Who Doesn’t Just Preach…

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on December 20, 2015 in News & Opinion |

There seems to be practically nothing but criticism for the European policy on refugees fleeing the various wars and catastrophes in Afghanistan, Syria and elsewhere around the world. Much of this criticism is aimed at Germany, but also a great deal at other countries who, overwhelmed and unprepared, are unable to cope with the influx […]

Another Religious Nut Who Doesn’t Know Religion

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on December 16, 2015 in Immoral Conversations |

It may come as a surprise to some, but it isn’t just the so-called Islamic State which can lay claim to religious fanatics who know nothing about the true meaning or origins of their religion. There are enough Christian examples out there – turn on any of the television channels which spout this stuff out […]

Watching The World Waddle By…

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on December 15, 2015 in Immoral Conversations |

A creamy cup of coffee and a half hour to kill before we meet up in town to take a look at wallpaper, paint and all those things you need when you move. And what better place to sit and enjoy a cup of milky, thick coffee than in a mall – or something which […]

Better Than Rings: Exchanging Keys

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on December 13, 2015 in Personal |

We’ve been talking about it for quite a while, weighing up the pros and cons, seeing what the prospects are and, above all, planning for the future. It seems that now is possibly the best time to take the plunge, to really commit ourselves, and so that is what we have done. Not, as some […]
