Breathtaking-photos is searching for contributors!

Journal Entry: Mon Mar 31, 2014, 3:00 AM


Hey, everybody.
Since the current contributors got very inactive, I'd like to fresh up the group by some new contributors who are active regularly!
"Regularly" means at least one deviation submitted once a month".

By being a contributor, you may submit unlimited pictures! It is important that you do not only submit your own work, but also submit pictures of other people you think may fit into the group :aww:

To apply, just tell me a bit about yourself here and give me 5 thumbs of images (from others) you would submit into the group :aww:

A big sorry!

Journal Entry: Fri Feb 28, 2014, 5:37 AM


Heyho, guys.

This journal is created to you all to apologize for my current hiatus. My life has been changed in such an immense way and I still learn how to manage it.
For those of you who want to know: I am living together with my boyfriend for one month already. :aww: Moving out from your parents is a great step which needs to be thought over and over before you really take it. I took it and I am happy I did it. 
Of course the first weeks were pure chaos, but now everything works quite fine for Sascha and me. :aww:

My photography is lacking a bit, though.. Life is stressful, especially because I have a job and a home to manage, but I am still trying to take some pictures, though. Be prepared, I am editing pictures right now. Who knows, maybe new images are coming soon? ;)

By the way: I wrote an article about nature photography, my passion for nature photography and my techniques! The book in which I am is presumed to be released in March, 2014. :onfire:

Last but not least, I want to thank you for all the birthday wishes! I'm 20 now and feel great with it :D


I hope you are fine, guys! 
Kisses! :hug:


Moving out from my Mom tomorrow

Journal Entry: Fri Jan 31, 2014, 12:07 PM


Hi, guys! 
In not even 12 hours I am moving out from my parent's home to live together with my boyfriend. That's why I will be inactive..
Once again, I want to apologize for my abscence here. I am still trying to visit dA everyday.

Thank you for still being with me! :hug:


Happy New Year + four simple resolutions

Journal Entry: Thu Jan 2, 2014, 1:02 PM


Hello, guys! :wave:

I hope your New Year's Eve was great, and I wish you a happy new year! :onfire:
I had a wonderful day with my boyfriend and in the evening we went dancing together. :love:

What are your resolutions? I bet many of you do the standards like loosing fat, getting fit and stop smoking or eating healthier.
Since I know I will never be that motivated to lose any fat or eat any healthier, I made four simple resolutions.

1. I am moving together with my boyfriend. I want to be able to pay it all time and make my boyfriend happy. 

2. I want to balance my job and photography more.

3. I want to start studying or apprenticeship.

4. I want to be happier than in 2013.


:heart: 
Rock on!


My first 2 days in the hospital

Journal Entry: Wed Dec 18, 2013, 2:30 AM


Hi, everybody!

Wow, I never thought working in a hospital is such a great thing. Well, when I had my arm broken years ago, I was angry because I had to wait about three hours. And now, standing on the other side, I see why people have to wait so long. It is such a great thing and you have to walk some kilometers a day! 
8 hours a day is also a feeling I never knew. Sleeping after work is the greatest thing ever. 

Unfortunately my photography is suffering under my current situation. In the mornings I go to work when it's dark, and leave it when it's dark....

But it's fun! :heart:


Hell, DDs are getting more and more useless

Journal Entry: Tue Dec 10, 2013, 2:14 AM


And I do exactly mean that.

It seems like nobody looks for quality these days. The DDs from the last three days are horrible in my opinion. Of course, there are some exceptions, but hell, it surprised me when I saw these.

What do you think about DDs?

About my 52-weeks project 2014. Important news!

Journal Entry: Sun Nov 24, 2013, 1:58 PM


Hey, everybody! :wave:

Thinking about many things concerning my future, I decided many things.

Since I will start my internship on December 1st, I am aware that I will be more inactive from there on. I will, of course, still upload pictures, but maybe stop doing monthly features or so. These ones will be renamed so that I can post them whenever I think I collected enough images.
My boyfriend and I are moving together. From February on, I will live my own life and have to decide everything. Hell, I am so excited! I am sure this will be the best time ever! As most of you may know, moving out/together takes a lot of time and effort. Because of that I (or better: my boyfriend and me) decided to do a project together. Actually we wanted to start a 52-weeks-project from January 1st on, but the stress in February would cause us to stop it then..
Therefore we will start something like a 52-weeks later this year, maybe in March or April. It will be collaborative work. I do not want to say more, since it is a little secret ;) Just stay tuned!

I will try to be as active as I can in the following months! :onfire:


Get the chance to be featured on BP's front page!

Journal Entry: Thu Nov 14, 2013, 1:23 AM


Hi, guys!

As we, :iconbreathtaking-photos:, are still searching for contributors, I made a new system to honor the work of our contributors. :)
Since the contributors only have to submit awesome pictures to the group, I made up a little contest for them to get featured on the homepage a whole month!

Do you also want to get this chance? Then apply under this journal or send me a note! Give me 5 examples of what you'd like to submit to the group if you could.

Since you'll be able to submit unlimited deviations a day, it's great to give your own art a chance there, too!



What does the contest for the contributors contain?

The contributor with the most accepted (!) submissions in one month will be featured. :hug: It's simple!


So, do you want to join? Then apply! We're a friendly team! :heart:


Important life updates!

Journal Entry: Fri Nov 8, 2013, 6:58 AM


Hi guys! Since many things are happening now, I wanted to give you a small insight here.

Currently I am really inactive on deviantART. Well, I am lurking around here all day, looking through the front page and such, but I do not upload anything except journals and polls. Why? Well, it's simple.
I had a toe operation on Monday, and since then I had to stay in bed almost permanently. The first three days walking was impossible because of the extreme pain (except for crawling to the toilet with one foot erected... )(I took about 6 strong painkillers a day), but it got better from day to day. Today, I got my stitches removed and walking short ways is possible, which means I can finally get myself something to eat without yelling for my mom! :giggle:

So, while lurking around deviantART my inspiration came back. It arrived like a positive shock, and my fingers are trembling now, since I have not taken any autumn pictures yet this year (except for a couple). It's frustrating to see the leaves falling and not getting the chance to document my absolute favourite season. But I will promise you: As soon as I am able to walk normally, I will take autumn pictures and spam you with the results :evillaugh:
Well, one week bed to go. 

And now: The last thing here, but possibly the most important in my life now: My personal future.
I applied for the medical studies in my local universities, and got rejected 5 times. After getting these rejections I moved my pre-depressive self and called as many hospitals as possible to get an internship for the following year. (Otherwise I would have worked at Claire's forever, and that won't make me evolve in my medical career, right?)
And now I have the possibility to work in the emergency rooms of a hospital that's about 15 minutes away from my current home! I will have a test day in 10 days. Then the people will decide whether I am suited for this internship or not. Wish me luck!
Second thing: I am moving out! My boyfriend and I will move together in February 2014. We already found a flat for us and we will get the contract soon. It will be awesome to move together, because we will see each other daily. :love:

So, how are you my dear friends? :hug:


Intimate, touching, emotive X

Journal Entry: Thu Nov 7, 2013, 1:43 AM


This feature is for all the happy couples in the world, the love shared in families, and for the good friends.


I am already 5 months together with the most awesome man in the world. He makes me feel like a little princess from day to day, and the great excitement before seeing him never stops. 
We are planning to move together, after such a short time, we know, but the feeling is just right!

Listen to this song while viewing this feature:

Best of September 2013

Journal Entry: Mon Sep 30, 2013, 10:27 AM


Here are some of the best pictures I found in September, 2013. They do not appear in my Square-features, that's why I do a monthly feature for all those great artists on deviantART who submitted no-square pictures.

 Enjoy!
