Fine, they want to sell a new pizza to you, but still: amusing. Love & Kisses, Viki.
Sometimes I have the feeling that if you compliment someone – or something – too soon after a change, things go bad. I don’t mean that a relationship sours off or anything like that, but what you have complimented, what you considered good, an improvement or whatever, tends to be overshadowed by something else. So […]
Sound of cell phone ringing. Young woman: ‘Mom, could you get that? It’s probably just William saying he’s coming soon’ Photo Source: Garry Knight – Creative Commons Mom: ‘Well dear, it looks to me like William already came…’ Love & Kisses, Viki.
Back in March, as some may well remember, I complained that I felt Yahoo could be killing Flickr with their advertising policy, with slow connections and so on.

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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
