About yesterday, July 21st, 2013

Blimey, it is blistering.
Hot in my apartment.
Hot outside.
Hot everywhere.
33°C (some 90°F) today and there is no wind, not even the slightest of breezes.

I didn’t sleep very well last night as my bedroom felt like an oven. The windows were open but then I hear the yelling of the tipsy youngsters or the agonizing cries of the drunk on the street as if they are standing next to my bed.

I’m sweating abundantly and I feel sticky yet sensual and hot.
Little A. is to the hairdresser and at noon Princess came by for lunch.

Yesterday, July 21st, Princess and Me had an afternoon to us and I took her to the Middelheim Museum in Antwerp a 30 hectares park.
Copied from their very informative website:

The Middelheim Museum collection contains approximately 400 works of art collected up over a period of more than 50 years. Works date from around 1900 to the present, and as a collection they provide an excellent overview of international modern and contemporary art.
Every year sees new works added to the collection. Around 215 sculptures have been placed in the park, including works by major artists such as Auguste Rodin, Rik Wouters, Henry Moore, Juan Muñoz, Carl Andre, Panamarenko, Franz West, Erwin Wurm and many others. Stately trees, broad paths and inviting grassy clearings complete the vista.”

In Brussels King Albert 2 had already abdicated in favor of his son, now King Philippe, during this extremely warm National Holiday. I could imagine the Military defile greeting the new King while fighter planes fly over the royal palace displaying the national colors.

Princess and I had a wonderful afternoon enjoying the art on display and the cool under the trees. We talked and kissed and laughed and felt happy and ever so carefree.
On a terrace in the shadow we enjoyed a beer and talked some more, holding hands and losing ourselves in each other’s eyes.

Time passes so quickly and soon, much to soon it was time to drive her home.

I kissed my Princess, said goodbye and whispered how much I love her, my heart, my soul, me, belonging to her forever and one day.

There is not a single day that passes without me praising Someone because Princess is in my life.

Firmament with Princess and I

Princess is without any doubt ma raison d’être.
I love you, Princess, unconditionally.

Thoughts – March 26, 2013

The deep red colored Australian Bin 50 Shiraz is excellent.
I’m playing Athamay’s Pleasure of Sin and the tracks Eternal Torture and Kiss (The Whip) are among my favorites.

On the little table next to my computer I have my simple setup. One lamp, a light brown background and some crumbled silver paper. I have my Sigma 180mm macro mounted on the heavy Manfrotto tripod and with the appropriate adapter my Olympus E-PM1 on the lens.

Some seed pods I collected a few days ago are enough for me to play.

I enjoy doing this, the writing, the photography.

Just playing around with some stuff I collected during a walk in the woods.

I’m using a simple setup with a single studio flash and my Olympus E-PM1 with a Sigma 180mm macro with Nikon mount.

In the mean time I’m enjoying some single malt and Bowies newest Opus Magnus on the background.

Ideas and emotions are racing through my mind and I need to write them down but I haven’t found the right approach yet.
Ah, we’ll see.
