"Life is like a camera... Just focus on what's important, capture the good times, develop from the negatives, and if things don't turn out – take another shot"
"One of the biggest mistakes a photographer can make is to look at the real world and cling to the vain hope that next time his film will somehow bear a closer resemblance to it...If we limit our vision to the real world, we will forever be fighting on the minus side of things, working only too make our photographs equal to what we see out there, but no better."
"Art is the only way to run away without leaving home."
"Amateurs worry about equipment, professionals worry about money, masters worry about light, I just take pictures..."
"Photography, as we all know, is not real at all. It is an illusion of reality with which we create our own private world."
"Take nothing but pictures. Kill nothing but time. Leave nothing but footprints."
John Kay - "Nothing But"

I won't thank you for every single fave, although it's very appreciated. What I will do, though, is answer every comment, give back every llama and visit your gallery each time you interact with me in any way. It might take some time and you won't necessarily notice me, but I will take a look. Promise.
Thank you for stopping by!

Themed Feature - Cornfields and PoppiesWelcome to another themed feature!
I love the dreamy feeling that is created by a cornfield glowing golden in the light of a low standing sun.
And then I see a poppy and it adds something magical.
Silly, arent' I? What about you, fancy a visit into my personal fairytale?

Themed Feature - Flowers in black and white
Welcome to another themed feature!
Flowers are beautiful, I guess you all agree with me in this point. Their colours make me happy. But what if the colours are taken away?
Please enjoy this feature of beautiful black and white flower photographies, demonstrating the delicate forms and plays of light around us.

wave after wave
i'm slowly drifting
and it feels like i'm drowning
pulling against the stream
pulling against the sream
i wish i could make it easy
easy to love me, love me
but still i reach, to find a way
i'm stuck here in between
i'm looking for the right words to say

The Golden Hour Photography Contest - CLOSED!You still have two weeks (until May 31st) to get your entry in.
Hello and Welcome to my second Photography Contest!
Thanks to everyone who suggested ideas for the next contest, their time will come, too.
I'm going to go with christycameasromans's idea: The golden hour.
This way no one can complain ("It's not spring/summer where I live...")
and everybody's happy!
What is the golden hour?!
The golden hour (also known as magic hour)is a period shortly after sunrise or before sunset during which daylight is redder/more golden and softer compared to when the Sun is higher in the sky.
The Rules - read them!
No b/w pictures, which is obvious I guess.
Again, you're entry does not have to especially made for this contest, but I would love it.
So your photographs have to submitted after June 2014!
One (1) entry per deviant!
