A couple of days ago I had this interesting conversation with Pete about photography, photographers’ personality, critics and many more. I found it so great in details that I felt I should post it here (with Pete’s kind permission to quote him of course ^^).
As if there weren’t enough ramblings on my own blogs… Now I’m obviously taking over other peoples Tumblrs… Hey, it’s not my fault! Tina asked me and when I start talking, I can’t stop… ^^ And these were multiple conversations, o.K.? ;)
I daadad eahna aa ganz gern amoi wieda inaram Diandl seng :)
It’s that a “kniebundhose”, or just a “regular” one?.
It’s a “Kniebundhose”, which is sort of the regular one. There are shorter ones (that look ridiculous, IMHO) and even longer ones. But the longer ones are not traditional
lol sorry but i couldn’t hide my laughs excellent selfie submission! :D
Thanks :D Glad, you liked it!
Can you guess, where all my Buster Keaton and Vincent Price movies are? ;) They are in the picture as well ^^ Oooh… and some Genesis live DVDs… How could I forget them *lol*
Yes, the heart indeed was very sweet ^^
YES! Brilliant! ;) What does that tattoo look like as a whole?
You will never know, dear ;)
Yiiiiihhaaaaa! Ne des is aber scheeen - oa Lederhosnbuam! :-))
Wer hat’s erfund’n? ^^ Fast perfekter Dialekt ;)
Btw: The fact, that this selfie has more notes than many of my pictures, is the proof, that it’s not only about the photographer but also about the subject *lol*

I wanted to comment, but your words just said it all, thank you!
You’re a dear friend,Pete! So glad to meet you… :)
Thank you, Pete! For lederhosen-selfie too :)))
Again: Thank you all! I’m thankful and happy!
Beautiful - love that peaceful atmosphere!
It was, Enzo! Thank you!
I’m really a bit jealous, Constantine :) You live in one of the most beautiful countries of the world. Thank you
It’s time to say thank you!
Not because, this side-blog has some anniversary or reached a certain number of followers or likes, simply because I have the feeling that I have to… (and maybe because some of you will unfollow after my lederhosen-selfie tomorrow *lol*)
It’s a strange thing with Tumblr… You meet people on a very different level than in “real life”.
You get in touch with their inner most self by looking through their eyes. You meet on a level of mutual interests. All other things are of no importance: Looks, heritage, gender, religion, native language … And this is more true - more real - than many things in so called “real life”.
Thank you all for your friendship! Thank you all for sharing your art - for sharing yourself! I made so many friends on Tumblr, it is absolutely unbelievable.
I’m in the arts-“business” for about 15 years now. And I’ve witnessed and worked on so many different projects of all fields of art (except dancing - you don’t want to see me dance) and I always denied to call myself an artist, because I met so many self-proclaimed artists who were nothing but vain. And I didn’t want to be confused with them…
And then came photography. And it literally changed my life. And when I realized there’s a photography-community on Tumblr, I was so afraid of being part of it. Literally afraid. But I was “forced” by some other Tumblr friends to show my photography here on Tumblr. And I failed. Because I was too afraid to show my work. I hid behind an alias and I did everything to not make my pictures public. And then, all of a sudden, it was like … I cannot explain it … I felt so “at home”, because you all welcomed me with open arms and you all gave me the feeling that I’m part of your community.
And I realized, THAT is art! Not just simply “doing your thing”… No! Art is being part of a community and sharing and enjoying, embracing the work of others. Looking through other peoples eyes. Expanding your horizon.
I’m proud to be part of this community. Proud and thankful, to be an artist among other artists!
Also big thanks to thesensualstarfish for all the reblogs lately!
In case I missed a reblog and didn’t mention you, please be assured, that it wasn’t on purpose and I very much appreciate your support!
