"Count your rainbows, not your thunderstorms."


After finishing editing the photo I looked at it and thought:

"What quote can I find - which fits to the picture?"
No quote today. One thought came up:
IF water can be (and look) so amazing,
Then we can be (and look) even more amazing!

But we forgot how amazing each one of us is.
Being a human, having emotions and being creative. This is crazy!

WE are amazing!

Not necessary to be modest.

WE are amazing!

Do you see the face in the picture?
Life is smiling at you!

"The true sign of intelligence is not knowledge but imagination."

“Whether you think you can, or you think you can't - you're right.”


Today I realized, everything we have in life (and life itself) is like a bubble.
Can it be, if we are aware of that fact - we start appreciating things and people more?
I want to fully enjoy the bubbles before they burst!​


Today on my way walking to the grocery store, I saw a perfect setup for a photo.
Yellow cross walk, yellow flowers and yellow sun blinds on the houses. WOW.
While taking the picture I heard a car coming and thought:
"It would be great if the car is yellow."
And it was yellow! WOW.
And on top of it, after the car came a man with a yellow helmet. WOW.
Only thing missing: a beautiful woman in a yellow bikini..
But I didn't think about that in this moment. Well.. next time!

Coincidence? Maybe, maybe not - It doesn't matter. It made me happy.​

"Everyone and everything that shows up in our life is a reflection of something that is happening inside of us."

"Women are made to be loved, not understood."

"The most important thing in communication is hearing what isn't said."



Every time I go out with my camera, I am very aware of my surroundings.
It's intense how strong I am in the moment while looking for motives.
Most people in the city are either on their phone or smoking.
What caught my attention recently: How loving mothers are with their kids. WOW.
So much love. It got me thinking. Kids experience unconditional love.
The mum loves her kid without conditions. This is real love.
That is what is lacking in this world and one big reason relationships fall apart.
In general it is "love" with conditions. I wouldn't even call it love.
I call it "I love how you make me feel". "If I don't get this feeling, I withdraw my "love" to you."
This is not love, this is a game, manipulation.
I know it is hard to love, even though the other person maybe is difficult or causes you pain. It is hard.
That's why I admire mothers: they love unconditionally and would give their life for their kid.
Big respect and thank you, to all the mothers in the world!
You are the source of unconditional love and we all can learn from you.


"Luck is a matter of preparation meeting opportunity."

Ingredients making this photo:
Preparation: charged batteries, time & belief that I will take useful photos.
Patience: staying with an object, looking at it from different angles & waiting for something to happen.
Luck: the perfect model (without hair) came into the frame.
Photography taught me much about life.
With preparation, patience and believing in success, I can get where I want to be.
Also LUCK plays often a part.
But for luck to come to you - you need to prepare, create a way and leave the door open!​


Those little sparrows are very afraid.

As soon somebody comes closer, they fly away.
Imagine you have to eat while fearing for your life.
But they keep coming back again and again.


Because the desire to eat is bigger than the feeling of fear.
That applies also to humans!
The feeling of fear will never go away.
No logic, no knowledge can fight that feeling.
Only one thing can overcome fear: DESIRE.

If you desire something really bad, no feeling of fear will stop you.
When you next time face fear:
Know what you desire, know that NOW is the opportunity & have strong images in your mind of what you can & will get.

With those images and thoughts, fear won't stop you!

Which pilot is flying your plane?

The pilot of FEAR or the pilot of DESIRE?

"Smile in the mirror. Do that every morning and you'll start to see a big difference in your life."


That woman from behind looked to me, like she is 25.
After I took the picture I saw that she is almost double.
Within one second from 25 to 50 years!
And that's how life is. It doesn't sound good.
Surely we don't want to hear that!
BUT it is good to be aware of that fact - so we are aware how we spend our valuable time.
Time is very valuable! More than anything!
You can have more and more of all things you desire, but you can't have more time.​

"In every walk with nature one receives far more than he seeks."

“People only see what they are prepared to see.”

"Questions are more important than answers."

"The best way to make your dreams come true is to wake up."


"Tomorrow I am going to start to lose weight."
"Tomorrow I am going to stop smoking."
"Tomorrow I am going to (?????)."
Tomorrow Tomorrow Tomorrow.....

How many "Tomorrows" did you already have in your life?

You really think "Tomorrow" is THE day to start/stop something?

If you really want something 100%, you start NOW!

There are two kinds of pain:

The pain of regret is much more painful.

It is your decision.


"Be happy for this moment. This moment is your life."
