I'm so excited for so many things at the moment. In April, I turn 18 and I'm already planning on a trip to the Swiss Alps, in summer I will do a roadtrip with just my vespa and like every year I'll to the Gamescom in cologne. But not everything I'm existed about is traveling. Next week we will get the faster internet I am waiting for since like forever.
Traveling to another universe
There are plenty of other willing to call you a failure. A fool. A looser. Don't you ever say it of yourself. You send out the wrong signal, that is what people pick up. Don't you understand? You care about something, you fight for it. You hit a wall, you push through it. There's something you need to know about failure, Tintin. You can never let it defeat you.
I spent most of the time driving around with my vespa, I had a lot to do but everything worked perfectly as intended. Luckily a friend joined me on my trip, it was such an awesome night
Our uniqueness makes us special, makes perception valuable - but it can also make us lonely. This loneliness is different from being 'alone': You can be lonely even surrounded by people. The feeling I'm talking about stems from the sense that we can never fully share the truth of who we are.
No matter how much time passes, no matter what takes place in the interim, there are some things we can never assign to oblivion, memories we can never rub away.
Under pressure, pushing down on me
It was really windy that day and I almost couldn't light the steel wool on fire. Really frustrating
This is Major Tom to Ground Control
I'm stepping through the door
And I'm floating in a most peculiar way
And the stars look very different today
I'm so thankful for all these people renting me their vespa. I mean it's not self-evident to give away your vespa for some photography
There are many different manufacturers for Vespa in different countries. For example in France they are called Vespa ACMA and in England Douglas vespa. This one is build in Germany and is called Vespa Hoffmann. It was build in 1950 and since then drove a lot of rallys. For each there is a seal on the handle.
During the shoot of the astro timelaps, we got creative with the second vespa, steel wool and the pixelstick. It got later and after 1 1/2 hours we returned to the camera to finish the timelaps. After that I continued to shoot some more pictures of the beautiful night sky before we returned back home. At 5:30 AM I finally went to bed. What an awesome night
Looking in the past, it's been more than one year since I started with photography. There is a big improvement in my photography, but that's not the only thing I look back to. Every single one of these images tell a story to me, connected to a certain memory and part of my life. It's almost like a timeline of my life, from finding a new friend to losing one. It all started with the inspiration of a classmate to even start with photography, and I'm so glad to still call this person my best friend.
Found this while scrolling through my gallery... I captured it like more than half a year ago. It was my first astro timelaps ever and I don't remember why I didn't post it... Anyways here we go
