Dear MeDear Me, 
Right about now, you, my 13-year old self, is most likely sobbing in a corner at school. Again. Because the mean kids in class wouldn't stop bullying you again, because the mean kids won't accept you for who you are. Or maybe right now you are talking really bad behind a friends back so you can come across as "cool" and score some "cool-points" with the same mean kids that will bully you just the same tomorrow. I know it seems endless, and maybe it is. But I also know this; you will get through this. And you can get through this. Trust me, I know. 
The best thing you can do right now is to just stop sobbing, hold your head up high and face the world, even if that world doesn't want to face you. Don't go buying that dumb, expensive t-shirt that all the popular kids have, and most importantly: don't try to be something, or someone, you're not. Because I know now that you are not like them. You are not mean. You do not "hate" people
Let Golet go of all the times we smiled
let go of all the times we cried
let go
of all the memories
we created together
and just
move on
...and break my heart...

untitledFear the lust of
a passionate heart
it might catch you
and run with you,
The metal gently
kisses the skin
covering her wrist
in blood
in front of her eyes
deep into the night
she will find her peace
in death.
DearestThe big puffy clouds
            in a deep blue sky
will always serve
            as a reminder
A reminder of our days
                before the clouds
                                        found you.
They found you 
                    adopted you
                                                                    as one of their own...
A Touch of Madnessthey say a touch of madness
glimmers there behind her eyes,
          sparking storms that sing with light
                                  and haunting lullabies
They say a touch of madness,

is inside all of of us
speaking words we never would,
waiting, at the windowsill. 
It glimmers there behind her eyes,
waiting, longing
for the day of darkness,
it finally gets to be free.
Sparking storms that sing with light,
rolling thunder and flashing
lightning on the inside
of her mind.
Haunting lullabies
are softly singing
the never-spoken words
of madness
You were the sunSnow, white and pure, leading me closer to the fabric of my dreams. I was the moon, and you, you were the golden sun. Your voice is ripping through the silence of my days, lingering inside my own thoughts. Lingering, lingering, my dreams are nothing more than a speck of dust in my existence. Clouds are stuffed in my lungs making it harder and harder to breathe, but the little girl looking at the big red balloon is what keeps me ashore. Inside the balloon awaits her dream, a dream that once was mine to dream. 
Push me forward with my head through the clouds and help me fly, for I can not do it on my own. Help me fly so I can learn how to stand on my own feet and maybe, maybe I can stop tripping over the words I'll never speak. But don't hold me down under the water where I can not breath, don't hold me down for it puts my lungs on fire and brings my eyes to tears. 
Voices are calling me, silently, gently laying me to rest, paint
Every DayOh darling, just take it slow, for you know- the wind will always be there to move your hair.
You came through my life like a hurricane in red- and even though I promised myself long ago not to write about you, I can’t help but be overwhelmed by memories of our days together, our days in the sun. I remember how we wished those days would never end, how we wished we’d be together forever. How we wished, oh, how we wished..
You promised.
You would never let me break, you would never leave me alone. You would always be here, with me. You promised… and you left.
You left.
You left me alone with all my fears, to battle them on my own and eventually- I gave up. I gave up, because I didn’t have you. I gave up, because you were gone. And no, I am not trying to make you feel guilty- I’m just telling you how I feel.
Oh darling- it’s been so long since I’ve seen you and there are no words to describe how much I miss you. How much I miss our
It's okaylie to me
and tell me i'm wrong
tell me i'm wrong to get in
to the water
gleaming eyes
are fixed upon their reflections
lie to me
and tell me it's not worth it
tell me
i can do better than this
lie to me
and tell me it's okay
to be broken
tell me the bones
will heal
one day
lie to me
and tell me
that i am not falling
like a shooting star
in the night sky
lie to me
and tell me
that you will catch me
before i hit the ground

Artists of Landscapes: LinsenSchuss

Journal Entry: Fri Mar 16, 2018, 4:00 AM
Your Home for APN Photography

Hello all, and welcome to a new interview! This time I got to interview LinsenSchuss and I found that very exciting! He was kind enough to share some wonderful insights with us :eager:

Sunset at the Fjord by LinsenSchuss

Hi there, LinsenSchuss ! Can you tell us a little about yourself, who are you?

My name is Dane Vetter and I live in Germany. I am 33 years old and have been living in Germany for so long. Photography is a passion of mine, as is traveling. I like to combine both and both complement each other wonderfully. Primarily, photography is a hobby I've had for almost 10 years, but on the other hand, it's also my second job for a few years. In addition to landscapes that are more of a hobby, I also photograph products for companies and weddings and various shootings. In my real job, I work in industry as a hygiene manager in Switzerland, which is something completely different from my photography.

Kirkjufell by LinsenSchuss Sunrise over the clouds by LinsenSchuss

What attracts you to APN photography, and photography in general?

I love to capture moments. I want to show people these moments and places, moments they have not yet seen. Thanks to photography, I've experienced so many beautiful sunrises and sunsets, and I've seen so many beautiful places. It is also a motivation for me to see more of the world.

Passo dello Stelvio by LinsenSchuss Ponte dei Salti by LinsenSchuss

What do you find the most challenging when shooting landscapes?

As you can imagine, light plays an important role in a photo. A landscape looks quite different at sunrise, as in the high midday sun. In the photo studio you can control the light itself and adjust it as you would like it. This is not so easy with landscape photography. As you can see, many of my photos were taken at sunrise or sunset. You sometimes have to start very early to catch the sunrise at the right moment, which can not always be easy. And there is no guarantee that you have a nice sunrise or sunset, even if the weather forecast looks good. The weather is often one of the biggest challenges in landscape photography, and is not always as predictable as you would like it to be. There is always an uncertainty about whether there is a fire-red sunrise with burning clouds, or a faint sunrise without a single cloud in the sky. I have experienced a few moments where you got up early, and then just before dawn a couple of clouds have moved in front of the sun. That can be frustrating. But you get used to that.

Lago di Saoseo by LinsenSchuss Lago di Saoseo by LinsenSchuss

What kind of gear and/or software do you use?

I work with full-frame SLR cameras from Canon. I have two Canon 5D Mark 4 with 8 lenses. And a lot of accessories I do not want to list everything. As software, I primarily use two programs: Adobe Lightroom and Adobe Photoshop. These are for me the most important programs with which I can do everything.

The endless Black Sand Beach by LinsenSchuss Between the pillars by LinsenSchuss

How do you improve your skills as a photographer?

I improve by looking at other photos of other photographers, being inspired. I watch videos, read blogs and books and check in forums regularly. The internet offers a lot of information, you just have to make something out of it. And most importantly, you also have to practice it.

The narrow ridge by LinsenSchuss The village at the gorge by LinsenSchuss

What is your favourite kind of landscape to work with?

My favorite landscapes? Currently the pure nature - in the day as in the night. I'm going to Iceland for the fourth time, you can guess what I like so much. ;-) (Wink)

The Hidden Face by LinsenSchuss The golden breakthrough by LinsenSchuss

Is there something you wish you'd known sooner?

Of course a lot! As an an example:
In the past, I always wanted to have the newest and best of equipment. Today I know that I do not really need the newest camera. :-D Today I know that the motive is more important than the equipment. But I have to confess that I'm now very well equipped after 10 years of photography, and with this maybe a reason why I do not worry about the equipment.

The green sky spectacle by LinsenSchuss The Vestrahorn in the snow by LinsenSchuss

Do you have any tips for people who want to learn how to shoot landscapes?

Yes! Practice and get better! Always try to evolve and be inspired by others. Be self-critical and look at other photos and compare them with yours. Do not be ashamed to imitate the same photo of someone else, because that's the way to learn. Show your photos to others, and sometimes accept criticism of your photos, and think about it. But you do not have to accept every criticism, only those that can help you.
