Eyes on - IcelandWelcome to my first featuring article: My first theme is Iceland. I'm dreaming of visiting Iceland for quite a long time but I wasn't able to realize it by now. Right now, I'm going through the gallerys, watching all those breathtaking landscapes there...and am just dreaming!
I hope, I will be able to infect you with my love to this tiny little spot down in the north.

Happy Holidays everyone!Hey!
So this is christmas...
I've waited for it quite long, now it's already the time to celebrate christmas and I've got not the real christmas feeling: In fact, I'll have to leave for work soon. Working on Christmas Eve really sucks, I think
In general, I started my civil service on December 1st, the job's not too bad and most of the people I'm working with are nice and open-minded but by now, I've got really crappy working times, almost only night shifts which basically means ten or twelve hours of waiting for something to happen and forcing yourself to keep your eyes open. I hope those taks plans will get more fair the longer I'll be there...
BUT: Another year is almost over and if the next year will be that short, my civil service will be over quite soon
This year was quite special for me in many aspects: I passed my exams enabling me to visit university, I was accepted at universities, I was planning to move away to start study...and due to civil service, I had to cancel ev
The new achievementsHey everyone,
some few news from my life:
First of all, I spontaneously bought an old Sigma 50mm F2.8 macro on eBay for I wanted a macro lens since I started taking photos. Today it arrived, unfortunately it was already almost completely dark outside, so I had to look for some quick test-motives inside the house and lighten them artificially. The result: I'm completely stunned by the depth of field and the bokeh created using F2.8 but the white balance in the first shots is really awful, so I'm not gonna upload more of it until I'll find some better situations for using the new lens. But I'm really looking forward to go out and see what there'll be found when the weather will get better again.
Second, I'm going to exchange my room with my sister for my room is too much cleaning up and I don't feel comfortable in here any more. I'm going to have about 1/4 of the space I'm having right now but I see it as a chance to start a completely new room, I'm gonna buy much new furniture and for t
some news.hey everyone.
after being too lazy to write something in here, finally some news from me again.
since friday i've finally got my (broken) camera back, which means it isn't broken anymore. the repair was about 200 euro - that sucks. but now, it's back home but unfortunately i've had to notice that this doesn't help that much: weather totally sucks, it's cold as hell (at least in my opinion ) and i'm ill due to a photo trip yesterday which wasn't successful at all. i took around 100 shots i guess and i've got only one picture i'm satisfied with...
in general, i'm suffering a huge lack of creativity and a lack of motivation to try out new techniques or ideas i think this is an effect caused by working around 30 hours per week in a quite annoying and boring job in an office which is very profitable but not creative at all.
buuut the good news (which i need all this money for): we are going to visit London in about 2 weeks. we'll spend a weekend there, a weekend with sightseeing, photo
Empty life + featuresDuring the last weeks, I've finally made the decision to start studying digital media at the university of applied sciences in Ulm. The decision wasn't easy because I've also had the chance to study in Hamburg, the city I love more than any other. The difficult facts: Ulm as a city is of course not as nice as Hamburg but digital media as a subject is - in my eyes - way better than media systems (which I think might be really technical and "dry", e.g. not creative at all)...
But after all, I chose Ulm and I already had some meetings to find a nice apartment there so I wanted to go to Ulm today and tomorrow and move there during September. Well, I wanted.
Yesterday, a single letter destroyed all my plans concerning studies and stuff. The Bundeswehr (German Military Forces) finally came to the decision that I would be able to do my military service. Unfortunately, they didn't exactly said when this will take place, so I have to cancel my place at university and sit here, doing nothing pro
Californiaso, as usual after returning from a journey, i thought it might be time again to refresh my journal. here we go:
some hours ago, we returned from our two-week-trip throughout California. we went to San Francisco and then went up Highway 1 heading south and after driving along the coast for long tines arrived at L.A. and San Diego in the south. i really enjoyed my first visit ever to the United States and i doubt it was my last one, i'll return there as soon as i can.
at first, up in the north, it was quite cold but after all, it finally became something of a summer holiday at last. even i got a slightly touch of brown color (what is quite unusuable for me) and i learned about how different weather can be only 10miles away: while san francisco was freezing under the obligatory fog (which destroyed by the way hundreds of photos i took -.-), 12 miles away it was about 100° and sun all over the place.
another experience are the supermarkets and malls that are unbelievably huge compare
returnso today i just returned from Malta where i visited :iconkeen-dreams:, it was really great and i made several new experiences like scuba diving (although i think i'm really untalented at it and quite hard to handle for my instructor Richard it was a nice new thing you just have to try and i can assure you, you'll really miss your camera down there, there's so much to see...) or just like how UNBELIEVABLY civilized good old Germany was in reality Malta's traffic is really an adventure itself...
unfortunately, my camera is still broken so i had to take my pictures with my cell phone (omg...) and a broken Sony DSLR-A200, i hope i will be able to rescue at least 2-3 good ones with raw, so i hope i will be able to show you some shots of the nice island of Malta. Right now, i'm really tired and sunburned all over my body (hurts as hell :S) but i really start to miss the roads of Paceville, the "party-zone" at Malta, compared to that, it's so boring to be here...
on top of that, i got the
shit day.hooray, it's my birthday today and i'm crying because i just got the verification that i made exactly the worst possible decision i could make; i spent a lot of money, a lot of time, a lot of nerves to go to hamburg two weeks ago to get to know someone i've known virtually quite long and i managed it to destroy the friendship with it. and with my reaction to this fact i destroyed 2 fingers of my right hand. what a good decision, it really made my day. now i finally feel like party...NOT!
strange...back from a spontaneous trip visiting Hamburg and a girlfriend of mine living there and who i've never met before...well, the results: a successful shopping trip, many new impressions, not that many photos and a feeling of can't wait to start studying, hopefully in Hamburg, of course, because i already really miss it
another strange feeling: i'm going to go to school tomorrow and on Friday and this will be it, for all my life (except two oral exams located in june, but at least no more days full of lessons). well, after almost 13 years of visiting school, this feels quite curious i think and i really look forward to many days off. "holidays" without end will be a completely new experience
right now, i feel quite sad and the only hope is my trip to Malta and to California in July and my MacBook, that i'm also looking forward to, but...yes, it may sound absurd, "i'm sad but there's this and that and that i'm really looking forward to" but...at the moment i'm really doubting whether
PE: Anime/Manga - Digital ArtGallery Month
Hello everyone! Welcome to the Anime & Manga half of this week!
Today Gwendolyn12 and me are going to explain the different categories of the Anime & Manga Gallery.

ABSOLUT CREATIVITYWelcome to my second spontaneously feature article! I'm really sick today because of the last night so I just sat around, doing nothing, fighting a hangover in combination with a cold...and yeah, got kinda bored so I typed "absolut" into the dA-searchbox. I've got a bottle of Absolut Mandrin around me and realised again that the simple, smooth design of Absolut is just absolut cool but after having seen the results I have to admint that this is absolut creativity...there are some really nice ideas out here, have a look at the ones i liked best:
