Meet Ian

TGiF- Thank Godtfred it’s Friday again.

Hello, it’s Stefan on behalf of the SiP crew. Let’s sit down for a virtual cup of coffee and talk to a friend of our little blog about themselves, their photography and about the #SiPgoes52 challenge again.

This week I thought I’d be extra clever and offer a cup of tea instead as I was going to talk to Ian from Liverpool, England. Turns out I hadn’t done my homework precisely enough:
Our guest kindly asked for a latte with sugar. (He spent some time in France.)

But now, dear readers, grab yourself an euphorigenic hot drink of your choice, lean back and enjoy our talk. Continue reading “Meet Ian”

Gold Leader or A Long Time Ago…

The story so far

A long time ago there was a young boy whose friends at school had told him about a galaxy far, far away. The little boy told his father about that galaxy, too. So one day they went to the movies to find out all about it. The boy and his father both enjoyed the film as well as the galaxy. The father didn’t have too much time to dive into this new universe as he had to work a lot. But the boy sure did. And soon the characters, stories, heroes, and villains were a big part of his life.

Week 16: Flexibility

Flexibility

Welcome to a quick roundup of week 16 in our #SiPgoes52 challenge of 52 words.

This week’s word is Flexibility and I’ll share with you some thoughts and own experience with this one.

Week 13: Passion

Passion can be found in various fields and situations.                                                  Go to a concert, a classical one with a huge orchestra or a rock gig: if the musicians are passionate about their work you will be able to feel it.

Whenever a  cook celebrates his craftsmanship to a certain level you will taste it.

And you don´t have to study arts to understand what drove a painter to create a masterpiece that really touches your heart.

Passion and Toyphotography

 

To me, Passion is and has always been not only an emotion but also a very special energy. A quick look at Wikipedia confirms that impression.

When asking fellow photographers why they photograph toys, so far most replied with “For the fun of it”.

But what got you started in the first place?

Week 7: Spirituality

The traditional idea

I´m sure most everyone who participated in our little weekly challenge #SiPgoes52 asked themselves the same question: What is spirituality? So did I.

First I guessed the word was originally connected to a religious context. A look at Wikipedia’s ideas confirmed that:

Traditionally, spirituality refers to a religious process of re-formation which  aims to recover the original shape of man, oriented at the image of God as exemplified by the founders and sacred texts of the religions of the world.

Fitness

Fitness may be the word of the week in our fantastic #SiPgoes52 challenge and I´ll be the last to say that sports are no good. Still some time out in between exercises is good, too.

Time we knew how to spend well when our friends from HispaBrick magazine kindly asked us whether we wanted to contribute to their brand new issue with a little article.  We´re specially happy to  be on board as in 2018 their team are having their ten years anniversary!! Congratulations from all of us!!
