What a Sunday... and pretty sincere again ^^

Sadly, my layout doesn’t allow sticky posts, like… uhm… you know… post something and it stays on top all of the time. Because the “Sincere Sunday” posts don’t really change from week to week … buuuuuuuuut … this week there actually is a newcomer… well… a re-comer: Tina is back :D

1. pupsik11:
The Swiss-man clicked his way to the top again ^^ I think, I don’t have to mention it, but please, guys and girls, do yourself a favour and check out his blog! Do it! Finest photography to be found there.

2. primitivesouls:
The same is true for Renee’s blog: Outstanding photography.  And pure joy to be in mutual following. Thank you! :D

3. biutifulpics:
Speaking of pure joy: Gerardo’s original photography (http://photosbygerardo.tumblr.com) is exactly that. I’m not in the position to judge. Not at all, but I know your blog from the beginning and I wouldn’t have followed, if I didn’t like your photos because they were good. But in such a short time, you have even improved! And speaking again of pure joy: Your main blog biutifulpics is not only a feast for the eyes, but also the biggest help, original photographers can have! Thank you! And as if that weren’t enough, you’re a great guy. Period. Exclamation mark!

4. teina-tokyo:
What would I be, without my dear friend Tina? Our conversations about photo-blogging are not only delighting but also very challenging (in a good way). To be in contact with one of the nicest people on Tumblr that also happens to be a fantastic photographer is really a big honor!

And there’s always, always, always space for … guess … yes, britanniccryminal, my most challenging friend (speaking of conversations) and for sure one of my closest here :)

Highlight of the week

Funny, that an older photo, that I originally posted on this blog and reblogged it to my photography side-blog tvoom, got noticed this week. I reblogged it, because I did a small “monkey-series” with my shots from Kenya and I didn’t want to re-upload it.

Showcase-time:

Like every week, I loke to showcase a blog, that I really love. This week it was a blog, that is not existant anymore. Because of anon-hate. And that is something, that makes me really sad and angry. People closing their blogs, because they get insulted. My first thought was: Why did she not disable “anon-asks”. And she did for some time and the abuse stopped. But as soon as she re-opened it, the hate started again. Not allowing anon-asks cannot be an option. Hate-mail is not tolerable!

A short personal note: I didn’t do any audio posts lately because I’m most of the time on my laptop, which (strangely enough) has some audio-problems. I can’t hear audio. Hope to resolve the problems in the next days, so I will be able to do some readings again (I KNOW you all crave for the weirdness) and do some more posts on photography on tvoom.

Speaking of tvoom:

To all new followers: I have a photography-only side-blog called tvoom.tumblr.com - where I not only share my original photography, but also some posts about my experiences in photography… just in case you wanted to know :) If you’re only interested in my photography, you can of course only follow there. No need to follow both. But I won’t complain about it ;)

Schöne Farben und Aufnahmen

Beeindruckend!

I think it’s really hard to shoot stuff like this and have it come out decent… you do a great job…

Dear friends – thanks so much for your kind and supportive comments – I really appreciate it a lot! As easy these captures might look it was quite a challenge to manage the reflections on the glass and its nature to strangely fringe the colors. So I had to choose the right angle of view and of course catch the desired creature in the right focus. Btw: there were also hundreds (!) of visitors (mainly children of at least 4 different groups) running, shouting and squeezing around the aquariums … and taking pictures also ;-)

Sinceeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeere Sundaaaaaaaaaaaa ay ay ay

There is a change? Really? O.o The photographers have completely taken over this list :)

1. pupsik11:
Amazing (not only) black and white photography from Switzerland. Every day again I’m waiting for new fantastic pictures and I’m never disappointed. Thank you for your support!

2. primitivesouls:
First time on this list and even on number two! Wow! Thank you, Renee! Great, great photography on her blog as well. I cannot stress enough, how much I like your work!

3. slouchingtowardsbethlehempa:
And thefrankshow! Completely different than anything I’ve ever seen. Every day and every week again a source of inspiration and a “kick in the behind” for me to be more bold and experimental. Thank you!

4. Learning to Fly:
A list without you, my dear? Impossible :) I don’t have to mention, how much I love your photography, do I? And not only your selfies! Thank you!

And what would this list be without mentioning my probably closest friend on Tumblr, britanniccryminal? Nothing? Correct! So it’s a must! Thank you for all of your encouragement and our conversations “behind the scenes” even though Tumblr seems to do everything to hold us back from… But we will succeed! :)

Highlight of the week

My top-post of the week is actually not my top-post of the week but still my top-post of the week… Confused? Well, I am *lol* The top-post is actually from my side-blog “tvoom” and got more notes than probably everything I ever posted before combined. It all started with a Lensblr reblog and a blue landscape tag for my picture “Shimmering” from the Rialto bridge… I’m still stunned!

Showcase-time:

Three blogs I like to showcase this week. And since it’s “photography-week” ^^ - three photography blogs :)

http://alittletasteofmint.tumblr.com/

For sure one of my dearest friends from the photography-community and an amazing artist. “Lina’s lines” are simply stunning. Check this blog out!

http://sharonriddickgroppiphotography.tumblr.com

Also one of my dearest photographer-friends: Sharon! She’s a fantastic street-photographer and her “real” approach makes my jaw drop every day.

http://teina-tokyo.tumblr.com

Last, but not least: Tina! You might have guessed it, she also belongs to my closest friends :) Amazing photography on her blog as well. I really love the variety and diversity on her Tumblr.

Also a big thank you, to all followers, old and new! Your support and love is so much appreciated and I hope I can entertain you a bit with my mixture of weirdness :)

To all new followers: I have a photography-only side-blog called tvoom - where I not only share my original photography, but also some posts about my experiences in photography… just in case you wanted to know :)

What a swiming pool – what a view ...

pupsik11 replied to your post: Singapore Reportage #015 Awes…

Wow das sieht ja wirklich Atemberaubend aus

mdeanstrauss replied to your post: Singapore Reportage #015 Awes…

tough assignment… someone had to do it…

frangipania replied to your post: Singapore Reportage #015 Awes…

Great shots of one of my fav locations in Singapore, well done Enzo!

lani-pix replied to your post: Singapore Reportage #015 Awes…

That looks a-ma-zing!

a-views replied to your post: Singapore Reportage #015 Awes…

Just Wow..

thevortexofourminds replied to your post: Singapore Reportage #015 Awes…

Awesome indeed! Fantastically captured!

Thank you all so much for your nice and kind comments – now this building indeed took my breath away also! It is even kind of surrealistic with its height, its huge pool and the awesome view on skyline of the city. Luckily we spent quite some time on it so I had enough time to take different photos :-)

Sincere Sunday

Sunday again! And it’s pretty sincere!

1. pupsik11:
How could it be different? Pupsik11 on number one. Thank you and Danke schön!
Deine Impressionen aus der Schweiz sind immer eines der Highlights meines Tumblr Tages!

2. Learning to Fly:
You know, what I told you! If you ever… then I will… You know? ;)
Thank you so much for everything :) For your pictures and for making me smile every day!

3. primitivesouls:
A second time on this list. Thank you! Definitly a must-follow-blog (just like the ones above btw), if you love fantastic photography!

4. teina-tokyo:
Tina! I’m so honored to see you on this list! Thank you! Thank you for your constant support and your thoughts and messages and also your challenging questions. Thank you for being a friend!

It’s already a tradition to mention britanniccryminal, isn’t it? But even if it weren’t a tradition, I had to mention you? Why? Because! Because you’re my friend and one of the most awesome people on Tumblr :)

Highlight of the week

Come on! You all can’t be serious?! This is my top-post of the week? A selfie? From today? That is really, really lame! Of me of course…

Showcase-time:

Two blogs I like to showcase this week.

http://biutifulpics.tumblr.com

Gerados blog for showcasing and supporting original photographers and original photography on Tumblr.
Not only is he a most awesome guy, but also has a blog where he posts his own photography: http://photosbygerardo.tumblr.com
Thank you for your constant support, mate! You absolutely rock!

http://proganthony1978.tumblr.com

A great source for all kinds of fantastic music-videos with an emphasis on prog (= really great music). The occasional pictures of beautiful girls are a nice extra ;)

A big thanks, to all followers, old and new! Your support and love is so much appreciated and I hope I can entertain you a bit with my mixture of weirdness :)
