About me


 

img_0948

I am 18 years old, female (always unsure on whether to call myself a woman or a girl), on some days a little darker, on some a little lighter. I am the friendly voice at the other end of the line and the girl hiding behind her camera. I am the one, who always travels with an enormous handbag (because I just can’t arrange with the thought of carrying a backpack) and curses way too much when loosing something inside of it. Sometimes I might be cynical, sometimes straight forward, on some days quite queer, on others as straight as someone can be, always dreaming about the next journey, the next city and the next time with someone I love.

I take pictures to share my thoughts, to take someone along with me on my journeys and to show the places I enjoy to others.
Even though i might look a little terrifying on some days, I am mostly quite nice to people.
In case you ever meet me, be prepared to hear how beautiful you are, how sparkly your eyes are and what makes you as special as you are.
My travels already took me to China, Skandinavia, France, Italy, Great Britain and the USA. I am currently living in Latvia, though I am originally from Germany.
In case you are searching for something certain, there are drop down menus above. You can either browse by country or ‚model‘. If you have any questions, want to chat a little or just tell me about your thoughts/tips/life : brightpigments@aol.de

  1. Seventeen and already doing so much! You seem to remind of myself in the sense that I like to do as many things that I can lay my hands on. For example, I am learning my fourth language, which, coincidentally, is German. (I knew it will come to use soon)
    Hoping to learn a lot from your journeys, blogging and beyond. Viel Glück!

    • Without work my mind is rumbling around, trying to find something to work on- I am never bored, just sometimes without sufficient kind of occupation 😉
      Oh german is a beautiful language. Have you ever read Rilke oder Kafka in translation? If you did- they are way better in their original form, if you didn’t wait until you are able to read it in German- it is totally worth it 😉
      Ich wünsche dir viel Erfolg mit deinem Deutsch- vielleicht kann man sich ja bald mit einander unterhalten 😉
      Thanks a lot for following my blog- enjoy 😉

      • I totally understand what you mean by always being occupied.
        I haven’t read Rilke, but I have read a few of Kafka’s short stories. Literature is a major reason as to why I am learning the language.
        I hope we can chat in German soon too, aber Ich bin nicht sehr gut, jetzt.
        I promise I will get there soon. 🙂

      • Wonderful to know someone who feels same way 😉
        Currently reading British literature (stoker, Shelley, Orwell) and feel that the original is way better than the translation 😉
        Du klingst schon fast wie ein echter deutscher 😉

      • Originals are always better!
        Shelley is one of my favourite poets. His words are profound. Your current reading list does make it seem like you are into dark writing. Are you?
        Ein echter deutscher? Danke! Aber noch nicht.
        (As you can see my vocabulary is quite limited. I am working on it. 😀 )

      • Dark poetry- especially the British one is always nice 😉
        Oh don’t worry- if you got the grammar somehow it’s easy 😉
        Wir deutschen sprechen selbst furchtbares Deutsch- Mach dir keine Gedanken, du fällst nicht auf 😉

      • Interesting.
        In my experience, people who can appreciate darker literature are in fact more cheerful than others.

        Hahaha. No matter how bad people speak, they don’t have to wait for one complete minute to utter a sentence. If only I can keep track of what is male, female and neutral gendered. Der, Die, Das… 😀

      • I am actually rather cheerful and appreciate a good laugh (and am mostly the one to cheer people up 😉)
        Oh the genders are hard for foreigners I fear but- you’ll get used to it soon- just consider to learn them straight away- you won’t be able to add the prepositions afterwards 😉

      • I knew it! You had to be cheerful if you read dark literature. 😀
        I was told to track of gender from the beginning. I do that. Every noun that I come across, I try to remember it as ‘Die Zeitung’ instead of simply ‘Zeitung’

  2. Entirely glad you somehow read one of my posts, so I came to delight in your photography. Wanted to travel my whole life, but my boys needed me more – far longer than I thought they would :> Life’s funny that way. Now I enjoy photos and dream of the day I take off on my journeys. Hmmm… I’ll probably start where they’ve already been!

    • Dankeschön! Liebe Grüße zurück vom wunderbar wohnlichen Fraport, Marie 😉
      Eventuell gibt es diese Woche schon die ersten Bilder aus Riga- vorausgesetzt ich habe irgendeine Art von Internetverbindung 😉

  3. Thank you for visiting! Travelling in South Africa has been quite wonderful – the scenery is amazing – do look at the posts from the Golden Gate Park and the Karoo. The Nature Reserves are good for walking – look at Marloth, and the Bontebok Park; and the Botanic Gardens are gorgous – look at the posts from Durban, Worcester, and Stellenbosch. I have nearly finished and I hope you will join me as I continue travelling – definitely not ‘going on holiday’!

    • Oh i will definitely have a look! South Africa has been on my list for so long- I don’t even know when I put it there…
      I will have to go there once- how long have you been?
      Will read myself through your blog again anyways- booked a week of London in August with my boyfriend and there is no need to do the tourist stuff again- that means more time for awesome stuff and definitely a few places from your blog 😉
      Cheers, Mary

  4. I just wonder, what is the difference between traveler and tourist. I am tourist and I mean with it that before travelling to some place, I find out everything interesting in that place, in which I will visit. For example sights, museums, beautiful gardens, cemeteries like in Paris the famous cemetery of Père-Lachaise, exhibitions, churches like Frauenkirche in Dresden etc. All these things, I try to find from blogs, especially from photo blogs, from travel books and generally from Internet. Because being a tourist, I love to talk with local people exchanging opinions and getting tips for visits and in many cases talking with them in their mother tongue.

    • There is no clear differentiation after all – though I like to think there is… Being a tourist is to me about seeing as much as possible in the smallest amount of time, visiting the sights (and the sights only) and not at all referring to the local customs…
      Preparing for a journey, learning the mother tongue, talking to locals – all of this is for me more about traveling than about tourism…

  6. I’m so glad I came to Community Pool today and came across your work. You are very talented and I like the diversity of your work-architecture, nature, wildlife (and cats!). Monochrome, color…everything. Truly happy to have found your work and I’ll definitely go through it all and leave you comments 🙂
