I’m a photographer, made in Germany in 1977. I already have a blog in German up and running for quite some time, The Lazy Teddy. When I started to blog, though, I had a hard time deciding between German and English as my writing language. I ended up settling for German since I know too many people who are less than fluent in English. Every now and then, though, I found myself mentally composing an article in English, and when I sat down to write it I found I couldn’t translate it; at least not in a way that didn’t sound translated. So I finally decided to start a second blog, this time in English.
I didn’t want to focus on a specific topic; just as on my German blog I write about whatever comes to mind, including posting the occasional video of me embarrassing myself publicly with my guitar ;-). (Although I got much better since the first time I did that, both with my guitar and with singing :D.) On this blog I will probably write less about Linux, though; there are already so many tutorials, howtos and the like in English out there, most of them by people a lot more competent than I am.
As I said in the beginning, I’m a photographer. Mostly portraits when I work, but in my free time I like to do nature shots.
I’m a book worm. If you want to know what kind of books I like, here’s a little story… We had a visitor from America. He looked at my book case and asked me if any of those were science fiction or fantasy. I asked, “What do you mean, any?” Well, I do also like a good thriller — at least as long as there’s some ancient mystery involved. Historic novels are also ok. Just keep any book that has anything to do with reality out of my way 😉
I’m also a huge music fan, which is why you’ll most certainly find a few videos in my posts, and most of them from better musicians than me.
Other things I’m interested in are Linux, Star Trek, web designing. While I do work out a lot, it’s not something I do just for the fun of it, but rather to stay healthy.
