Let’s face it, photography can be a pretty expensive hobby. And as your skills improve (and your wishlist grows), you may find yourself wondering if you can start earning back some of the money you put into it. The bad news is, we live in a time of widespread technology, which means, just about everyone is capable of taking at least half ay decent photos. The photography job market is shrinking by the day, and it’s becoming harder and harder to earn a full time living off the art.

Does god exist? - Existiert Gott? #punchline #satire #pointe

Is there God? This is a difficult question for me. I am without confession. First I ask the definition of God. So what is God? If God is an old man in heaven with beard and keys to the paradise around his belly, then I do not believe that God exists. But if God is the undefined, the components of universe, the substance of the Big Bang; Then God must exist. As long as there are unanswered questions there is God in any case. Should mankind ever be omniscient; then perhaps not more. Maybe.
Gibt es Gott? Das ist eine schwierige Frage für mich. Ich bin ja ohne Konfession. Ich stelle erst die Frage nach der Definition von Gott. Was also ist Gott? Wenn Gott ein alter Mann im Himmel ist mit Rauschebart und Schlüsseln zum Paradies um den Bauch, dann glaube ich nicht, dass es Gott gibt. Wenn Gott aber das Undefinierte ist, die Bausteine des Universums, der Stoff des Urknalls; dann muss Gott wohl existieren. Solange es unbeantwortete Fragen gibt, gibt es auf jeden Fall Gott. Sollte die Menschheit einmal allwissend sein; dann vielleicht nicht mehr. Aber nur vielleicht.

As a rule, sticky substances and photography don’t mix. For a beloved camera, any liquid substance is a cause for concern.
