Introduction
Hello and welcome,

it's a thrilling experience to be here at G+ and come in contact with so many different people all over the world. It's inspiring (and sometimes funny) to read your thoughts and opinions, adore your pictures and share your emotions.

Quick Info:
Freelancer, photographer, sailor and gadget-lover

Co-Curator of: +Book Lovers
Books are always with you? Are you a books addict? Have you photos of books, portraits with books, architecture with books, your prefered book? The last book you're reading? Everything concerning the books you can share with us.

Interests:
  • photography (people, sailing, events, landscapes, natur, architecture)
  • sailing (Baltic See, North, Sea, IJsselmeer, regatta)
  • books (almost everything: Literature, Thriller, SF and Fantasy, Biographies, Science, Education, Psychologie...)

Ten things you don’t know about me:
  • I put my left shoe on first
  • I sleep with a “security-pillow” 
  • I usually wear earrings and some kind of scarf 
  • I always take a book and a cam with me – just in case…
  • I love electronic gadgets and travel with lots of different power chargers for my cams, my Kindle, my Smartphone, my tablet and my Netbook (and with my pillow ;-) - hope they will invent a universal charger and long lasting batteries soon…
  • I sailed to London, Helsinki, Mariehamn, Stockholm, Copenhagen, Bergen, Hamburg, Amsterdam and nearly to Haparanda
  • I’m a night owl and a “morning-zombie”
  • I've read “The Lord of the Rings” about 15 times and watched the movie about 10 times 
  • I love riddles, brain teasers, puzzles and games
  • I’m the mother of procrastination (but I always hit the deadline)

Languages:

Great news!
 
+Selfy Sunday is returning. Look out for the new Spring 2015 Selfy Sunday Project event for the first weekend in April.

Yes that is the holiday Easter weekend, so get your "Bunny" suits out and dusted off.

I will announce the theme and the event on the Thursday before that weekend.

Have to have some of the regular folks back and always looking for new photographers to particpate.

Week 9: The Aquarium

Last weekend we had not less than three birthday-parties and I took a lot of photos (everybody expects me to be the photographer...). Our goddaughter got some nice seahorses for her birthday and I tried to capture them.

Week 10: Taberna Archaeologica

Late again, but shot this in time for week 10... I went to visit another birthday brunch in Mainz and did a bit shopping with a friend afterwards. She showed me this small but very interesting museum:  the Temple of Isis & Mater Magna. The site was discovered in 1999 when an old shopping center was rebuilt.
