Yet Another Year - Wieder ein neues Jahr #punchline #satire #pointe

And this year, too, the same things are going to happen, only the names are different: someone is withdrawing taxes and is rewarded. Someone blows the whistle and is punished. Someone is lying and is elected.
Und auch dieses Jahr passiert das gleiche, nur die Namen sind anders: Jemand hinterzieht Steuern und wird belohnt. Jemand blowt die Whistle und wird bestraft. Jemand lügt und wird gewählt.

Music Video "Dark Wave" Released

There is a dark wave breaking in over Europe. Here my statement against terror and war.
Song from the album "Boheme".



It is a song about fear. Something big is coming. It's cynicism that in the moment of fear when people run for their lives some make a picture, maybe a selfie, to publish in a tweet. Listen to these effects:
"People suppress tears, shrug shoulders and resign": Git&Bass is suppressed too
"But the more that jump on the more it sinks down": The pitch sinks / deceases too.
"The crowd starts a stampede": Drums express the Stampede

Dark Wave

Dark is the horizon, we're agitated by sudden fear
All eyes are focused on what is rolling near
Some run, some freeze, and some forsake their love
Birds flutter up. What a view from above!


Is it a menace or gloomy shadows from the past
We will find out but won't appreciate at last
People suppress tears, shrug shoulders and resign
Wiggle their ears, mumbling, it was only a matter of time


A ship! A ship! The crowd starts a stampede
Some take pictures to publish in a tweet
But the more that jump on the more it sinks down
The captain with his white gloves is the last that will drown


Ref:
A dark wave is breaking in
A dark wave is breaking in


Epilog:
Mothers, get back on your feet
And take the children from the street

In real life there should also be a rewind button to experience some things again.
Im wirklichen Leben sollte es auch einen Rewind-Knopf geben, um manches nochmal erleben zu können.

#Photography: How to Relax a Client During a Portrait Photo Shoot

Good tips. I try to talk before the shooting to make the "objects" feel cool, free of fear.

If there is one thing I’ve learned over the years of photographing people, it’s that the response to candid photos versus posed is distinctively noticeable in my clients. That “aww” or “ohhh” I see…
