New at Flickr.. and already arguments with a lot of people. My opinions are often argued by others. I don't make art, I want to be art.
2007 will be the year that I give direction to my life. I have to make some firm decisions. Please join me during that decision-making.. and maybe give me advise...

i don't like firework
i was at a party
so no firework for me
i stayed inside
drinking cheap champagne and try to flirt with the host
who's girlfriend is my best friend
so, this candle was my only thing that reminded me today of what firework looks like

Good luck to you this year in finding your direction. The candle design does also remind me a tad of fireworks.

yes, i have to agree that it is not the most exciting photo you posted.

Tin: no way! This is a great photo... don't listen to him Suzi! I like the shapes and you have a nice little star effect on the light. It's simple and closed in and has a great feel to it. It's a good one.

Anyway just wanted to say hey. Happy 2007!

luckywhitegirl and suzi, please know that I think the photo is brilliant as it is, but with exciting I mean, not full with life, as if your mood is reflected in this photo. As a photo, this one is great!!!
Samrag Posted 12 years ago. Edited by Samrag (member) 12 years ago
Love the photo - Love the spontanious (however that is written) way you write and express yourself Suzi.
Regarding your job (as I am very quick to give free advice): If no one else is depending on you regarding income - jump, jump as high as you can, take the chance - quit, go for your art 100% - or you will still be doing your job in 100 years!
Regarding your lovelife... if you doubt, quit!!!!! doubt is poison that will carry on destroying everything.

Hope this will rather help then confuse... But the best advice from me is, is to ignore all advices from me.

in the morning when you sleep

i wake up early
and sneak down
dress myself carefully
but most of all quietly
you don't want our love to be for real
me being gone in the morning
when you awake
is the best you've got to offer

wonderful, what can I say?

look at that face. it's the face of an angel....don't be so anguished.... i'm 45 and an artist amongst a host of other things.... celebrate and bathe in your art, develop and discover who you are. i see you covering up already -- Just BE.... you will evolve.... never apologize for your art, and don't ever down play it -- your eye saw something you needed to capture at that moment.... at some point you'll see patterns in what you capture and you can use that.

But I think that you have a lot of fight in you as well - a bit or a rebel... Look forward to see more photos... more... more....

Could we start a calendar: The Pretty Women of Flickr. ?

It'd need a lot of months.


If only I could get the resources together. It'd make millions!

Ah the first move: not the easiest one.
Don't take it bad, but it is so strange for me to listen (actually read) a girl taking about taking the first step, because I always have the feeling that in this society, this is mostly asked by men to initiate.
I know I've been discussing this many boy and girls around me, and, even if it is not that black and white, I always get from the girls:

"I like hime so much, if he likes me, he will have the courage to do the first move"

and from the boys:
"She must like me, I've made a first move and she answered yes"

I have alsmot never heard a guy, talking about a girl making the first move towards him.

I went further into this research to find out, that the truth is that boys and girls do not define the first move the same way. A boy's first move, would be to ask a girl out, a girl's first move would be to make the guy understand that if he ask her out he will get a yes.
That's subtil but I believe this. No boy would ask a girl out, knowing in advance he has a 100% chance of failure. A boy will try to "read" the girl is he targetting to see beforehands if he might get a yes or not.

So I would say, don't jump on him, boys don't like it, it is too suspicious, just makes clear that you wouldn't mind going out someday, having a cup of coffee, or damn it's cold in here, why not going somewhere warmer, but the important thing is to suggest the idea, and he must take it, like "oh yes you're right, let's get inside this coffee to get some warmth and cup of coffee" or "oh so you like movies, would you like going to see this one" and so on and so on.

If you're open your door and he does not get in, either he is blind, or not receptive. That would be the bad option of course.

Good luck! ;o)
