DO YOU LIKE THE RAIN?

When I used to live in Europe, I did not like it so much.

Because there is more rain and grey than sun and blue skies.
Living away in countries with a lot of sun and little rain:
NOW I love the rain.

The rain never changed, but I did.

SCREAM!

Let it all out!

Life is not easy, for non of us.
Even if we can face difficulties with a smile - some negativity comes in our system.
Today I was walking with my dad in nature.
We were talking about one of my projects.
I released all my negative emotions.
It feels great! People usually have problems expressing their anger or happiness.
But you should try it! Not just talking about something.
Really expressing how you feel.
Afterwards, you are fresh and positive again.
And maybe you find solutions for the problems, like I did.

LET IT ALL OUT!

With a friend or even alone in a car (with loud music) or in a forest.

"My joy is watching people being joyful."

"Life is pretty surreal and awesome."

SUPERPOWERS

We all have superpowers!
Do you know those moments, where you FEEL that someone is looking at you?
AND
Then you turn and it's true! You see that a person was looking at you intensly.

I saw that woman deep in though writing in her notebook.
She could not see me. The distance was more than 10 meters.
She could not hear me. She was listening to music.
BUT
She looked up and directly in my direction.
I was very focused on her.
She felt it!

It's fascinating. There is so much happening around us.
We have to be open and look for it!
With my camera I am more open to those things.
It's intense when you walk around for hours looking for good photo opportunities.


REALTY IS INTENSE!

HANDS

Hands are fascinating!

Everything you see (except nature) is made by hands!
You can do good or bad things with your hand.
The decision is made in your brain/mind.
But the hand follows your decision.
It's crazy. All is connected to the hands.
Signing a contract, getting known to someone (shaking hands), writing "I love you".
The hand is the greatest tool!
In the past, now and in the future.
If you are touched by a hand it can feel good.
OR.
It can feel bad, if the owner of the hand has the intention to hurt you.
You can write someone a compliment or put someone down.

It's in your hands.

ANYTIME

Manuel and I know each other since about 10 years.
We met through photography.
In his spare time he was distributing flyers in downtown Bern.
I took a picture of him. He is also a photographer.
Since then - always when we met, we had our cameras with us.
Except this time.
But I had my cell phone and when I saw the silhouette, I asked him to jump for the sake of art.
I am so happy about the development of cell phones.
You can take good quality pictures everywhere & anytime!

EXCITING

We fly around the sun super fast!
108000 kilometers per hour! WOW!
That's 30km in one second.
83 times faster than the speed of sound.
42 times faster than a bullet from an AK-47.
WOW!
We are travelling on a high speed spaceship through space!
Good, that we don't feel it.
But we can notice it!
Today while taking pictures in the morning, I notice how fast the shadow moved.
Within a few minutes I could see a big difference!

There are so many crazy beautiful things around us we don't notice.
But when we do, like I in the morning, it's:
EXCITING!

PS:
Acutally we are even faster going through space!
The sun is moving through space, too! And we are following.
Plus, the galaxy we are in is moving, too.
A lot of motion!
And we are sitting on the sofa...
