On the way to resurrect the sleeping beast…

24.05.2017 | Vienna, Austria

Well hello there,

it’s been a long time my friends. Life happened and I couldn’t find any time or energy to write on this blog. Working full time, trying to balance my private life and relationships meant I had to make some sacrifices, one of them was not posting anymore. It really saddened me and I often thought of posting something just to post something but I felt that was not good enough. I continued to photograph a lot during this time, I have a hard disk full of unseen awesome photos begging to be shared but I couldn’t find the time to write something meaningful to accompany them so I didn’t post anything. And here I want to ask you… How important is text to you? Please take a moment to vote on the poll below. I want to make V-Light Photography an enjoyable experience for all of us and your opinion is very important to me. Thank you for your time! πŸ˜€

Equipment used for this photo:

  1. Hi Alex! Missed seeing you in the blogosphere…. Is text important? Not necessarily as far as I’m concerned…title your post, and bung a few images in!

    1. Hello Sue! πŸ˜€ Nice to hear from you! Thank you for your input, I’m trying to see how I can keep running this blog even if I’m really busy. Just uploading photos without having to think about text would be really time-saving and certainly doable. I fall into the trap of thinking I have to write something meaningful with every photo and then I end up posting nothing. The same problem occurs with the blogs I follow, I always try to leave meaningful comments and when I don’t have the time for that I don’t even visit them and so months go by…You get my point… How do you deal with this? Any tips?

      1. Never mind the meaningful comments when pushed for time, just a word or two….’great image’, ‘lovely’ etc….then at least you are saying something!

  2. Alex,

    Please note that if you want to see the “work in progress” of my thunderstorm painting, then look at posting in Russell Dodds Art on Facebook. I have painted 6 small thunderstorms across the top of the canvas, and I am beginning to paint your thunderstorm across the bottom as the main feature.

    1. Hello Russell,

      thank you for the update, you made me smile! It looks really amazing!!! Can’t wait to see it finished! Would love to share it on my blog when it’s ready with some words from you if you like and a link to your page of course πŸ™‚

      Best greetings from Vienna


  3. Hi Alex! With so little time to read lately, I lean towards photos tbh… But would still enjoy some text from time to time… Not very helpful, I know 😊 Anyway, lovely to see you here, can’t wait to hear the beast roar!

    1. Liaaaa!!! Hey!!! πŸ˜€ At first i thought who is Humble Fabulist and then i saw i was already following you! Hehe! πŸ˜€ Thank you for your input. Well it’s easier to write when i don’t have to think i must write a lot. I usually end up writing quite a few lines anyway. I see you are as hard-working as always visiting museums and exhibitions πŸ˜€ How has New York been for you until now?

      1. Yep, it’s still me πŸ™‚ NYC keeps me as busy as it gets! There’s so much to see in museums and galleries but also outside – the streets are bustling. Then, there’s travelling to other awesome places. And then, I still have to work! But there’s so much energy, enough to rub off on me and keep me going… one year and one month later, I still love it! And I see you do too in Vienna – your decision to move there was the best!
