destinies by NikolasBrummer destinies by NikolasBrummer
I don't want to waste my life living up to anyone's expectations, I don't want to bend and ache for anyone, I don't want to change because it doesn't fit in someone's image. Sometimes I wish I could cut off all these influences and just start all over by myself. Detaching from the love, the hate, the unnecessary talking ... it'd be so easier. While on the one hand it is not impossible, I could never let go of the loved ones. I simply couldn't .. and I think that's good. Because those are the people that try to change me the least - if even not at all. So eventually, I think I've got this all under my power and control. Not everything. There are so many twists to come that I'm not even slightly aware of, but that's actually what makes it worth it. And I think that's good.

W.O.W.! I'm so in awe with this image. It's so simple, without the props and the fancy production, but yet so so powerfull!! I love the delicacy of your pose and the mystic look on your face. The 50mm f/1.4 really does the trick creating that wonderfull background and lovely lighting effect.
Plus I loved what you wrotte under. I feel so indetified with your thoughs.
Your art is purely inspirational. Thanks so much for sharing. And keep up with the AMAZING work! :heart:

This is really an amazing picture! The contrast, the composition, the filter, the lighting, the key: everything is really perfect! Next to that, you are really handsome. Also what I really love about your pictures, is that they alway convey me a story. I can always read the tale that you want to tell, without you having to actually tell me anything. And that's something really remarkable. I can say without doubt that only true artists can find that talent inside themselves and actually use it in any visual art expression. You are really fantastic at what you do. <3

Amazing! The bokehs were playing tricks with my eyes, and suddenly getting larger!

Now I will have to go and read some more Benedict Spinoza! Your comments remind me of his essay "On the Improvement of the Understanding" (variously translated):

"Human weakness cannot attain to this order in its own thoughts, but meanwhile man conceives a human character much more stable than his own, and sees that there is no reason why he should not himself acquire such a character. (2) Thus he is led to seek for means which will bring him to this pitch of perfection, and calls everything which will serve as such means a true good. (13:3) The chief good is that he should arrive, together with other individuals if possible, at the possession of the aforesaid character. (4) What that character is we shall show in due time, namely, that it is the knowledge of the union existing being the mind and the whole of nature."

The quote comes from #13 here:

naja, folhmärkte in amsterdam. :aww: da findet man oft was sinnvolles. und die daten ... naja, ich mache die fotos in GIMP, dann konvertiere ich sie zu TIF, um sie dann bei GIMP zu xcf und dann zu JPG zu konvertieren. Beim ganzen konvertieren geht das halt verloren. :shrug:

:iconnikolasbrummer:
NikolasBrummer Featured By Owner Sep 1, 2012
ich mach die Fotos in RAW und um die in GIMP zu öffnen konvertiere ich die zu TIF weil die Farben dann die selben bleiben (würden sie nicht in JPG) und dann bei GIMP speicher ich es als .xcf dann kann ich die immer nachbearbeiten und dann speicher ich sie als JPG damit ich sie posten kann. :)
