First post

«Why a blog about photography?»

It all started with my other blogs, Die Murmeltierjahre im Land des Frühschoppens and its Spanish twin, Und komisch spricht das Murmeltier....

At first I wrote a little bit of this, a little bit of that, mainly about my life and my thoughts. Then I started writing about photography from time to time. First I tried to take pictures that would match my posts. Soon I started posting random pictures as well.

After a while I realized that I had lots to tell, but almost all was about photography, and I started not posting at all because I did not want to convert Die Murmeltierjahre im Land des Frühschoppens in a photography blog.

It was not until I understood that I was starting to use flickr as a platform to talk about photography in a way it was not meant to that I realized what I needed was to create a new blog, a blog about photography. And here it is.

I'd be glad if you would come along with me... :)


  1. Hello!

    I am very proud to be the best to comment.

    Precisely today, I have been talking with a profesional photographer and he has made me realize how far I am of some kind of knowledge in the photographic field.

    I have so much things to learn that I have the feeling that I do not know nothing!

    It´s great that you have decided to open a new blog to share with us the things that you learn.

    I will be very happy to follow it.

    Regards, my friend :-)

  2. If I may, I will come along on this walk too!

  3. Paco, justamente eso es lo que me pasa a mí siempre que me enfrento a algún reto nuevo y me pongo a buscar cosas en la web. Pero ahí está lo bonito de la cosa, si sabemos tan poquito es que todavía nos quedan muchas horas de diversión aprendiendo! :)

    Noema, por supuesto, me gusta teneros por aquí :)

    Por cierto, chicos, podéis dejarme los comentarios en la lengua que más os apetezca. Escribo los posts en inglés porque quiero seguir practicándolo, pero se me hace raro hablaros en inglés a vosotros! :)

    ¡Muchas gracias por comentar! :)
    Un abrazo,
