I have made my New Year’s resolution early this year. And I started working on it this weekend. I KNOW. I’m proud, too 🙂
I spend way too much time online. It is a simple fact.
I enjoy being online. But sometimes it annoys me how much time I waste just clicking through statuses, pictures, blogs, various Google results (don’t get me wrong here, Google and I = best friends.) And of course, there is Facebook. Days could pass by and I still would be clicking my refresh button. I know there are people out there who feel the same (please admit ;)). I figured that I need to change. Just a little bit. Put some of this online-energy into my photography “education”. Go out and take pictures. Twice a week. Minimum. Yes, some people do sports. I go out and take pictures. I hope this helps me to improve (and maybe I will get fit too).
This weekend I accomplished my first 2 times a week. It was nice to not be online aaaalll the time.

Friends! It is not easy to write a blog. I feel like I have a boooring life. No new pictures. No news. Not even nonsense to share.
Well maybe. I thought I’d share some ideas. I want to print posters and frame them. For my office. My colleague and I were thinking about this for a longer period of time. We want some work-life-balance. Or: Just nice pictures in our office. So here you go. Tell me what you think. Theme is Light. I am pretending the white frame is the pass-partout and the black frame, well…the frame. Ha. I am soo talented with words.

Back then in 1995, I had to make one hard decision.
My family and friends were having a barbecue in a park close to the city. I think someone was celebrating his birthday. We heard loud music playing, people were passing our barbecue place and walking to the other end of the park. We followed them and saw a camera team, a set built up and a beautiful woman lip synching something like “Badadadideido, left right, right left…” A man in a uniform was standing next to her. Captain Jack. We were kids and sooo proud to be watching behind the scenes. We became immediately fans. We watched the video on VIVA (German music TV station) and felt great. Because we were theeeere.
At the same time there was another band and another video on VIVA. 5 guys on ski vacation following a group of girls. One of the guys wants to get together with the girl who was just broken up with her boyfriend, promising her to never break her heart. I totally liked those guys. And…the song, of course 😉
Then my friend asked: “Who do you like better: Captain Jack or the Backstreet Boys???”
WELL. I know it seems as if the answer is easy. But back then it wasn’t. Really. It was a really hard decision.
I followed my teen heart. I am a bit embarrassed BUT I still love to hear their songs. And by the way: Their lyrics are the only ones I know by heart.
So, who do you like better?
I know it’s trashy. But I love the 90ies.

Let me start with this: Sweet & kind. That’s what they are. They trusted me from the very first beginning, showing affection and belief. I am grateful. Now I’ll call you definitely my friends 😉
Jasmina and I had a great time shooting and celebrating your Turkish/German wedding. We really enjoyed it! DANKE & TEŞEKKÜR EDERIM!
