Story
Tagline
Style is knowing who you are, what you want to say, and not giving a damn. (Gore Vidal)
Introduction

I'm here for two reasons: to gather interesting ideas and connect to people with those and for Photography. My photography is in general the only stuff I post to the public.

I'm a flexible guy interested in a lot of topics and themes and believe it is important to be open and flexible when listening to others. I still have convictions I won't give up easily. 

"Allow yourself to yield, and
you can stay centered.
Allow yourself to bend, and
you will stay straight.
Allow yourself to be empty, and
you'll get filled up.
Allow yourself to be exhausted, and
you'll be renewed.
Having little, you can receive much.
Having much, you'll just become confused."
(Lao Tzu)

If you take offense by my art/pictures/opinions/comments I point to the  following line:

'And if perchance I have offended
think but this and all is mended
We'd as well be ten minutes back in time
For all the chance you'd change your mind.'
(Tim Minchin)

In Photography I'd love to one day create a work that fits the words below:

'Anybody can look at a pretty girl and see a pretty girl. An artist can look at a pretty girl and see the old woman she will become. A better artist can look at an old woman and see the pretty girl that she used to be. But a great artist — a master — can look at an old woman, portray her exactly as she is… and force the viewer to see the pretty girl she used to be….'
"Stranger In A Strange Land", Robert Heinlein

Week 11/26: Self Portrait
now one of those I skipped so far. A new business attire like headshot was anyhow needed for a conference publication ... so I had a opportunity to dive into something high-key'ish ... hope you like it.
