I Was There: Selfies And Disaster

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on August 23, 2015 in Internet |

Selfies, the fad of taking a photograph of yourself, is not a modern thing no matter what people may say. Artists through the centuries have recorded their own image in their works since man first discovered that he could scratch on cave walls, and many of the most famous Masters have included themselves in world […]

World Maps: The Final Proof

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

It is the truth as every single Australian knows it: all the maps of the world are wrong except those printed on their fair continent. Australia really is on top, along with all those other lands in the southern hemisphere, and President Obama, along with ex-President Clinton and a little help from Mark Knoller, prove […]

Sacred Cows And Art: The Eye Of The Beholder

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on August 14, 2015 in Immoral Conversations |

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, whether that ‘beholder’ is another person or some narcissistic selfie-shooter staring in a mirror makes little difference. And beauty in art is also a matter for each individual, something which often cannot be explained to other people since it is such a personal matter. Comparing Constable, for […]

Flickr Explore: Choosing Quality Photographs

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on August 10, 2015 in Internet |

Every single day thousands of people upload their photographs – and other images – to Flickr, either to add to their collections, to show off what they have created, perhaps even sell examples, or to try to gain a place amongst the Flickr favorites on Explore. And every single day, looking through the selection which […]

Sexism And The Wandering Eye

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on July 8, 2015 in Immoral Conversations |

I don’t have a problem with people looking, we all do it including me. I see a beautiful woman walking down the street, I am going to look at her, I’m going to see what she’s wearing, I’m going to admire her shape. Not in a slack-jaw, drooling, spit running over my chin manner, as […]

Copyright: Who Owns That Building Right There?

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on July 2, 2015 in Photography |

Copyright is, at the best of times, a complicated subject fraught with problems for the layperson and pitfalls for both copyright owners and those who wish to use an image, an extract, an item for a specific purpose. In theory everyone knows that a photograph, taking just one example, is copyrighted, even if they do […]

My Internet Superpower Should Be…

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on June 18, 2015 in Photography |

The first thing I thought when I saw this photograph on Flickr’s Explored today was: I wish I had taken this. I wish I was the person standing behind the camera who was able to capture this single image, this moment in time forever. For me, as a very inexperienced photographer, it has everything that […]

Bargaining Powers

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

Sometimes you can have all the luck in the world, sometimes it is a clear case of bargaining against the odds to get what you want for the best possible price. In my case, over the last few weeks, it has been a bit of both, and my photograph today shows the results: two new […]

The Almost Perfect Copy

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on June 1, 2015 in Immoral Conversations |

You’ve got to give it to those people involved in technology and selling us things which we really do not need, they are full of ideas. Now that it appears as if the iWatch – or whatever the thing is that Apple has produced – could be something of a short-term success, other companies are […]

Fine, they want to sell a new pizza to you, but still: amusing. Love & Kisses, Viki.
