Life is a timemachine.

Here I will share my second timemachine-photos. As some may remember, I use a single use-camera as a timemachine. Sometimes I take this camera with me, forget that I maybe have it, remember and make a photo. One day it's full and I go develope the photos. When I see the photos I remember things that were forgotten. This camera was around 6 months old. Not very old, but also not too young I would say and I'm quite satisfied with the photos. I didn't do anything of editing, I just scanned them.

'Gravedigress dig me a hole I can bury All of my love and all of my holy'

Last Saturday I spent with my grandmother in Hamburg. We did a Alstercanal boatrip and ate Sushi and enjoyed the weather while we could, because in the afternoon rain was starting again and we took the train to Schwerin. I was going with her, because I also had to make some photos for my aunt and her homepage on sunday. The homepage starts to form and I'm helping where I can, like taking photos, creating icons and so on. At the end of July we want to start the homepage and of course I will inform you when you can have a look. Maybe some of you are interested in it. Here are some examples of photos I made that day.

Next weekend and the weekend after that I will go to Schwerin as well for photos. But my little cousins won't be there, just my aunt and my big cousin, but he doesn't live at their home. Anyway, we will mainly work and relax. Well, of course I didn't make this entry to tell you this. First of all to those who don't know it yet I will move in the middle of July into Hamburg, it's definite now, because we signed the contract last week. Another thing is that I will work on some musicfestivals in July and probably also August and won't have much time, but it's an exciting job and I'm really looking forward to it.

 In this picture you see two babybirds living in the open centre of the house of my family. They were just starting to fly and during the day they flew out of that yard into a new life. It just looked so cute how they were always sitting on that ladder.
Another thing I wanted to tell you about happened also on sunday in Schwerin. The day started with that one of my younger cousins Katrin looked into the garden early in the morning and started to laugh until she finally said: 'Is it a usual thing that we have wild boars in our garden?' Good question, because there were 3 wild young boars in the garden, chilling. We thought they must have been young, like teenagers or something, because they were still quite small. Maybe they were out all night, partying and now tried to sleep off their hangover. I missed that early in the mroning because I was still in the bathroom, so when my little cousin Helene (12 years old) was telling me about it and was showing me pictures. At first I thought it would be 1st April and they were fooling me, but obviously they weren't. Also later in the afternoon they came out of the bushes again and I was able to see them with my own eyes... as well as all the neighbours, children and later the police, who didn't know what to do.

  It was a big attraction for all the neighbourhood for quite some time, until we left them alone and the police went away, not knowing what to do and waiting for instructions. Well, I continued to take photos for work until the evening when someone was calling to tell us that a ranger would come to see what is about to be done with the wild young boars. They were in the middle of the city sorrounded by gardens, children and houses and no one had any idea how they got there. During the day everything got really excited about them, even liking them and finding them interesting, because they didn't seem particulary dangerous. And now ... we come to the sad part of the tale. As you maybe can figure out while reading this, there won't be an Happy Ending. We thought the ranger might catch them with some helpers or drug them or something. When he arrived one of the three young boars already had disappered, while two were left running around in the garden. The ranger, with two police officers and another ranger came into the garden, took photos and filmed them with their cellphones and then... they got out their guns. Helene wanted to see it, although it was clear now what was going to happen. I turned away the moment I realized it, but it was too late. They shot the biggest one of the boars, drop dead. I went upstairs and hid in Katrins room, crying. Helene was coming after me after some moments, telling me that the other ran away and they don't know now where the other two are... No one was hungry that evening and the mood was absolutely spoiled. My uncle blamed himself that he didn't stop them. He rather had them turning the garden upside down at night instead of this. Everyone tried to think about what would have been better doing. There were these justifications in the room. It was in the middle of the city, they might have been dangerous because they were still very strong and could have hurt someone, there was no way of getting them out of there... BULLSHIT, I know. All I can think is, that killing an animal just because you don't know what to do with them is NOT A SOLUTION!
As I said no one was hungry that evening, we were sitting on the couch, watching Doctor Who (because that is the only reasonable thing to do in such a situation) and Helene was dressing up my hair in many kinds of ways. She was very good with that and she made photos with my camera so I can show you. But everything seemed very spoiled that evening and it still feels spoiled. Even after three days.

  I like the third one very much and in the last picture you see a detail of how she had braided my hair. Looks all very nice and I wish I could do hair like that. But I'm very untalented.
No one slept really well that night... next morning there was no other topic at the table but the boars. But of course all the talking doesn't change what has happened. It was a senseless death and there was no excuse.

Not so 'cheerious' today...

I got tagged!

I got tagged by morpho portis. Usually I don't do this stuff, but I really liked the questions, so I changed my mind. The rules are:

1. Link the person who tagged you as a thank-you.
2. Answer the 11 questions from that person.
3. Make up 11 new questions.
4. Tag 1o other bloggers who have less than 200 followers and tell them about it.
5. Tagging back is not allowed.

I don't know so many blogger who I would dare to tag, but I will make up some questions and maybe tag one or two I like to see the answers from. And if some others who read this, feel intrigued then answer the questions at the end. When you do so, please tell me. I really would like to read them.

The questions I got asked and the answers follow now:
1. What was THE book of your childhood?
- Uh, that is 'Ronja Räubertochter' (Ronia the Robber's daughter) by Arstid Lindgren. I also very much liked the movie, but I prefered still the book. My mum had to read it to me a thousand times. I always wanted to be Ronja and live in that world she lives in. My mum read me many books by Astrid Lindgren and I really enjoyed her stories. Another book of my childhood would be 'The Neverending Story' by Michael Ende or 'Momo' also by Michael Ende, as well as 'The Hobbit' by J.R.R. Tolkien. My dad always read the Hobbit for me though.
2. What dish do you despise and why?
- That would be cheese. I mean I like melted cheese like on pizza or Mozzarella or Parmesan, but I don't like cheese on bread for example. I don't like the texture and this weird taste. It used to be much worse, that I couldn't touch this kind of cheese, smell it and I didn't want to sit next to it at the table, by now it's better about that. Just recently I ate accidently cheese in a salat. I didn't feel sick afterwards or anything, but it still felt weird in my mouth and I didn't like the taste. Meh.
3. Where is your favourite place in your room/flat?
- Apart from my bed... we have a white wicker chair, which is very old and at the moment in summer it's standing on our balcony. I really love that one and my mum already had it when I was a child. I always have the sound in my ear that the chair makes when you sit in it and move. My mum said when I soon will be moving out I'm allowed to take this chair with me. Yay!
4. Do you have a quirk for collecting something?
- I collect old cameras. Most of the ones I have are from my granddad, but sometimes I search for some on fleamarkets. I also collect postcards. I like to buy them in museums or collect these free ones at bars or something. They can be quite hilarious. I pin them on my wall like a giant mosaic.
5. If you could have one superpower what would that be and why?
- One of my favourite famous people I like said once when he got asked that question that he would like to have the super power to make everyone love each other and be peaceful and nice to each other. And have instant orgasms. I kind of liked that idea. But I should come up with my own... I would like to shift into a bird (preferebly a seagul) and fly over the ocean, like the seagul Jonathan. Just fly, fly, fly.
6. What are you afraid of?
- Of losing the people I love.
7. Which three things make you happy at the moment?
- 1. My best friend, 2. Doctor Who, 3. that the sun is shining today.
8. Is there something you regret not keep trying?
- Sometimes yes, there are some people I miss in my live or that I didn't keep up with learning japanese for example. But with the people I guess I have to accept that because that's just how the world is. Japanese I could start again. But there are so many other things I like to do... meh. I guess it wasn't as important then.
9. Your current favourite song?
- Tears for animals by CocoRosie (feat. Antony Hegarty)
10. Who would you like to met personally? And what would you do with that person?
- Does it matter if this person is alive or dead, fictional or non-fictional? I will just answer all of them, I guess. If you would have asked me that some months ago, I would have answered I would like to meet my small half brother, but by now I have several times and I'm very happy about it. I finally can feel now that I have a another little brother. Anyway, a dead non-fictional person I would like to meet is Friedrich Nietzsche. Well, not meet actually. I don't know if I could stand in person in front of him, but just like seeing him from a far in a café or something, or maybe one of his lectures at university. A fictional person I would like to meet would be the Doctor, doesn't matter which one. Just the Doctor. I would ask him of course to take me with him for one trip somewhere in the galaxy. And an alive non-fictional person... uff that's hard. Maybe... Norman Reedus. I would like to hang out with him and take photos of some interesting corners in Hamburg. I would like to see him work, because I like his art more than his roles in movies and TV Shows and so on.
11. What are you addicted to?
- Milktea. I can skip so many other things, even chocolate if I want to, but not my dear british milktea.

Thank you, that was really exciting! And now it's time for my quetions:

1. What was a childhood dream of you what you wanted to be when you would be grown up?
2. A place you want to travel to (city, country or region) and why?
3. A movie everyone should have watched?
4. Imagine: The Doctor comes with his Tardis and wants to take a trip with you. He asks: Past or future? What would you choose and why?
5. Do you believe in God? If no, why not? If yes, why?
6. If you could choose to be immortal (for example a vampire), would you do it or would you stay with your mortal life? Explain!
7. Do you believe in reincarnation?
8. Do you believe in soulmates?
9. If you could be an animal, which would you want to be?
10. Do you believe in aliens?
11. Do you think religion is neccessary for humanity?

I'm sorry for these kind of heavy questions, but I really want to know what others think of them. I would like to tag


I don't have many other follower who read my blog in that great detail, which is why I won't tag anyone else. Those who read this and want to answer the questions are free to do so. Please sent me your answers!
