It’s dark and grey….

… my computer has been to the “doctor” again and I had little chances to make my work. It took a long time for my admin to solve the problems I have with my computer. Meanwhile lots of photos are waiting to be  edited. I had no chance to work on my orders ’cause our laptop does not have the performance for CS 4 (and the screen isn’t good enough). OK I thought, I’ll make a short trip to my friend in Stade to edit my images on his work station – no chance… OK next question: “What about the money I get from you?” – neither a concrete answer nor any money transfer (and I’m still waiting for my payment more than one month!)… That’s what I call collaboration *lol*… Here some photos I made on a live performance of a band called “Heartrock” (a “Heart” tribute band) for their homepage. They purchased only 104 shots…

At the same time I revivified some old contacts to friends I lost at the time I was married – they are professional musicians. I was lucky ’cause there are some groups and one musical project they need a bass player for. The project is something between songwriting and jazz-swinging stuff, one group plays some blues/r&b and one other is band that plays 70’s rock and is performing mostly on bikers events and sth. like that. Lots of notes and some cd’s arrived my home and I have to practise a lot.

The next thing is that one of these friends has too much work and he has no time to do all that. As he told me his better half sometimes asks him “pleased to meet you sir but who are you? ;-)? Could be dangerous, right? That’s why he asked me to make some booking for the groups me made that job for. I talked to my love about that because there are a lot of tasks coming up to me and if our private life will make some changes because I’m more on tour now I think it’s better to discuss this before I make my own decision… Last not least we are two. OK this was solved last weekend. The computer is repaired and I’m back again *yay*….

More about my experiences the following days….

BTW the blog title applies only to the weather. It’s rainy, dark and the snow melt away. There has been only one sunny day up til now this year what is 23 days old in the meantime. So we were out that sunday to relish this day in the nature. Here some shot made in the shade…

Now I have to go back to my work. Lots of e-mails have to be answered and the telephone is my best friend at the moment. I wish to stay more often here with you all but temporarily time is not by my side. I’ll do my very best to change it.

See Ya!

  1. Hioe close are you to that otter?! Awesome shot, as well as the one of the moon; always a nice touch when forest is used as a frame 🙂 Sounds like you’ll have a lot of fun things to work on in the future, that’s good!

    • Thank you fatcat. I’ve been about 3 meters away from the otter and used my 70-300 lens. It was quite dark so I had to use a high ISO (3200) at that shady place…

  2. Sorry about all the computer trouble. I hope that gets worked out for you. Your pictures though of nature are quite nice.

    • Well the computer is doing his job again but now the network is sometimes out of order (and we pay for that!)… 😦
      So it’s a hard job to post now. I hope it will be better in the near future.

    • … and I for one am glad that I can work offline now again. Netwrorking is a hard job for me temporarily. T-Com sucks – sometimes 😉

    • I was lucky to share some new experiences here with you. Because of the bad working provider I could be happy to sen some “thumbs up” on facebook – better than nothing….

  5. Nice to see you on WP, I’ve been too busy to post too! But selling 104 photos…now that is wonderful.

    I’m glad your computer is working again and you can get back to editng photos.

    Loved seeing your photos of the bands and your world.

    We have lots of sun here but it is cold for us in the 60s…looking forward to spring as it usually is here in Feb.

  6. … oh yes – I’m so glad that I can work again at my “work station” – and if my network connectivity is better again I’ll be more busy on WP again. That’s a promise! BTW to post a comment I need nearly 2 minutes for 😦
