When I was 17, in my first semester of college, I got my first check for something I had written, a whole $17 (coincidentally). It was an amazing feeling, something I've never forgotten, even though I've worked as a writer for some 20 years since.Selling my first photo (last week) , felt very much the same.There's a sense of validation, a quiet thrill, to know you've created something that doesn't just get admiring comments, but that another person thinks is worth paying for.I sold my second... continue reading

Winter arrived in Calgary in full force last weekend, with a big snow dump and cold temperatures passing through 0 C...I had a tarp covering our lawn furniture that freezing rain pooled on and froze.I grabbed a chunk of the ice and threw it in the freezer thinking it might make some cool shots (pun intended!).I had no idea how cool - the little bubbles moving through as it froze almost look like mercury when viewed closeup.I put the chunk of ice on top of a glass and fired a wireless... continue reading
I think that "Zen" is a keyword for all contributors of the dreamstime community. Because, whatever you think about your picture, you have to accept the judgment and go beyond the frustration.And this is the picture that I am really proud of. This is the first time that I went to the same place several time. It is also the first time that I took time to seat down in front the scene, to have a look around me to see where is the sun, to wait patiently the good moment to press on the button of my... continue reading
About a year ago I moved to a part of Switzerland that is known for being foggy for four to six months a year.The sky during Winter here is almost constantly of a dull light grey, when it's not completely white, and the temperatures are almost always around zero degrees Centigrade.Dreary place, you'll say. Well, up to a point I agree. The local weather certainly reduced the amount of outdoor pictures I take during the cold months. At the same time, it takes fog and low temperatures to have... continue reading
Everyone on this world is searching happiness outside, but no one understands own soul. Everyone says ‘I’, ‘I want that’, ‘I am like that’, but no one does not understand those ‘I’. When you were born from where did you came from? When you will die where will you go?If you will be honestly asking: Who am I? then sooner or later you will strike the wall, where mind stops. We call that ‘mind don’t know’. Zen is affirming mind ‘don’t know’ always and everywhere.Seung... continue reading
What about that.Some scientists where study frozen and fresh vegetables and they discover that frozen are better then fresh.They all have almost the same value vitamins and calories. In that point fresh vegetables and fruits are even better but yet frozen are better. Why, because of pesticides. Productions of frozen products are more controlled then ‘production fresh products’.When we buy fresh goodlooking salad we have no idea where it was growing, maybe in some... continue reading
