Life

If you live long enough, you'll make mistakes. But if you learn from them, you'll be a better person. It's how you handle adversity, not how it affects you. The main thing is never quit, never quit, never quit.

––William J. Clinton

Have a wonderful Sunday everyone.

====================================================

In this composite I used my own backdrop, a beautiful swan from PatrickMcDonald1 (http://www.deviantart.com/art/Swan1-stock-png-360467311) and the sweet girl from sophiaastock (http://www.deviantart.com/art/stock-394-cut-out-48083554).

Reflections

Men seek for vocabularies that are reflections of reality. To this end, they must develop vocabularies that are selections of reality. And any selection of reality must, in certain circumstances, function as a deflection of reality.

––Kenneth Burke

Enjoy your weekend everyone! :)

Wild

“We need the tonic of wildness...At the same time that we are earnest to explore and learn all things, we require that all things be mysterious and unexplorable, that land and sea be indefinitely wild, unsurveyed and unfathomed by us because unfathomable. We can never have enough of nature.”

― Henry David Thoreau

Have a great day everybody! :)

Credits Where Credits Are Due

As most of you who have followed me through the years here on Google+, you know how I feel about not giving credit where credits are due.

Lately I have violated my own rules when doing my composites and people who have taken some of the original photographs which I have used have not been properly credited for their work, thus leaving the impression that I have both taken the pictures and put together the composites.

Some of you also know that I am fighting a serious illness since a few years back, even though I am not going to use that as an excuse. I have mentioned that a few times here on Google+ and I thank you for all your concern. However, as I mentioned before, that's not an excuse, even though it affects my brain.

I have been fighting copyright violation here and elsewhere for years and even started groups here on Google+ as well as having helped others to claim their rights. Now I stand before you and must admit to having missed to credit others in my own work! Not all the time, of course, but enough times for me feeling that I need to write this post. No matter that I only have use STOCK pictures as mentioned openly in my bio here on Google+ and in many of my pictures here.

This is what I am going to do:

I hereby APOLOGiZE publicly to those who I have not credited and if you find that I have used some element in my pictures that belongs to you and I have not credited you properly, leave me a note and I will credit you or, if you wish, take the picture down.

I will check my feed as soon as I can and delete/credit the pictures affected as best as I can. Original photographers deserve to be credited as I wish to be credited when people use my stock photography.

Again, dear fellow artists, I sincerely apologize in this open manner to you who have been affected by my neglect. I also apologize to all of my followers who might have been mislead in some cases. You all have my deepest respect and I hope that you will show me a bit of understanding in my moment of shame.

With all the best regards,

Peter

Falling Asleep

I close my eyes, then I drift away, into the magic night I softly say. A silent prayer, like dreamers do, then I fall asleep to dream my dreams of you.

––Roy Orbison

Have a great day my friends... :)

Somewhere In The Distance

I lay in my bed and think about you
I love you so much I don't know what to do
I feel your warmth at my side
The pain in my heart moves to my eyes
So far away yet always so near
You are the reason I am still here.

I await the times when we can talk
I await the times we can finally hold hands and walk
To feel you for real... so close to me
The happiest person in the world is what you would make me.

––Janna Rutty

Have a great Wednesday everybody... :)

Thanks to the mountains covered with snow and the sun that we see and the reflections in the water. Nature is always beautiful.

Fields of Red

Red is cool fire
Red is the feeling of love
Red is the passionate color
Red is the color that brings my love to me
Red smells like roses, so aromatic
Red tastes like cherries, so sweet
Red sounds like a lover, the one who loves me for who you are
Red looks like a fire, that doesn't get out of control
Red feels like a soft kiss
Red makes me know that I will always be loved

––Brooke Audino

Have a wonderful week everybody! :)

Another Day Says Goodbye...

The last rays of the sun caresses my face and I think of the day that is soon gone. I watch the calmness of the ocean, the colors of the sky, the shapes of the clouds. Soon darkness will descend and bring the night to me but still I have time to view nature in the mirror of water displaying her from its most marvellous side. "How I long for you to rise again!", I whisper to the glowing smiling sun, "It's not goodbye, It's until we meet again...".

Have a great day everybody! Meeting you here in my feed ever so often is a privilege and joy to me... :)

Story
Tagline
Author | Photographer | Digital Artist | WordPress Designer | Web Editor | Pro Blogger
Introduction

I am an author of historical fact books, photographer, Photoshop artist, WordPress designer (since WP saw the light of day), web editor, professional blogger and musician. Oh yeah, I’m a dad too. That takes a lot of skill, patience and bravery.

Some people say I am crazy – I just call it being passionate about what I do.

I am the third most followed person in Sweden on Google+ (actually I am number one in reality since the two persons before me are inactive) and rank in the top 35 World Wide in average plusses, comments and reshares on/of my posts according to CircleCount.com statistics. My Google+ page “Photoshop Tutorials” has more than 240,000 followers and counting.

I am also a member (former moderator) in the Photo Sharing | Fighting Picture Theft Community.

My specialities in photography/image editing are Conceptual Photography, Fine-Art, Landscapes and Photoshop Visual Art.

Now that I mentioned Photoshop, we married way back in the early 1990′s. Today I still don’t understand her fully. Love can be a strange thing…

I want to keep this introduction short because my feed is all about pictures. You can read my full bio over at LinkedIn.

Being a published author as well, I might as well mention the link to my page at my publisher:


I was born in Finland, raised in Sweden and lived many years abroad (Finland, Germany, USA). I guess that makes a cosmopolitan (and curious?).

My main interests, besides the obvious as stated above, are particle physics, cosmology, astronomy, music (I used to play the guitar in a hard rock band in the 1980's), nature hikes, fishing (mainly sea trout), computer technology to mention just a few.

For those of you interested in buying my work, yes, I sell high resolution files of my images (NO prints) which you may print out at a printshop of your convenience. Contact me for more details.

I run the Pixativity Photographer's Directory where I promote excellent pro and amateur photographer's from all over the world.

If you want to use my work for commercial purposes, contact me for detailed pricing information.

Want to use my work without asking me first? Then read this page about my Peter From Creative Donations License.

For my work labeled Photoshop I use my own photography, stock photography and clip-art. Sometimes I mix all three components in my work. Please note that the ARTWORK is All Rights Reserved.
Bragging rights
Tech and economic education, solved a couple of historical mysteries, play the guitar, have a sweet boy and have seen many corners of the world.
