dancing and enjoying... (for Taty's friend Hans)

Best to: View Large and On Black

The above photo and also the one here under were taken on the same day. The one bellow was dedicated to all of my friends on Flickr, and I placed it with the following poem, which is by an Unknown Author and was published on the Forward to a Better day ezine.

Always remember to forget
The things that made you sad
But never forget to remember
The things that made you glad.

Always remember to forget
The friends that proved untrue.
But don’t forget to remember
Those that have stuck by you.

Always remember to forget
The troubles that have passed away.
But never forget to remember
The blessings that come each day.

for all my friends on Flickr...

Incredible – totally useful to know …

This video shocked me so much that I had to share it with you on Totally Useless.com.
Think about your daily commute and compare it if you can with what seems to be normal in Japan…
And the most important part of it all – be sure to choose other means of traveling while in Japan πŸ˜‰

Than I’d like to ask if you know the name of this wonderful flower? Is it maybe some type of an orchid? I shot it a few weeks ago in an orchid garden, and the same goes for the photo of the “angry orchids”, the name of which I also do not know.

Happy Easter and Spring to all the readers of Totally-Useless.com

...Happy Spring...

With the captures here I wish all the readers that are believers – a very Happy Easter and Good Friday, and for everyone else – a Happy Spring πŸ™‚

...plum blossoms bokeh - HBW...

I know that the captures are far from the clichΓ© egg or bunny images, but being personally such a lover of the extreme beauty in objects and nature – I could only be satisfied with such a “Congrats wish” as I am presenting for you here in this post…


Trust me friends, lots of things are going downright awful for me right now and I can barely manage the daily works as I am far behind with everything that I had to do. And once everything has been completed I hope to resume posting more often on my blogs than I am doing right now.

Spend well your Easter Holiday and I will talk to you soon πŸ™‚

…How wasteful human race really is…

Sunday, March 16th, 2008

Garbage Man.., originally uploaded by farmer giles 01 (I’m back).

Haven’t you wondered at times what if everything we buy keeps doing us service forever? Wouldn’t this be great? No extra garbage, no extra costs, etc,etc? We all know on the other hand that businesses and factories have to earn, so we unconsciously keep the vicious circle going, and going forth. We keep buying “garbage”, because the stuff was not meant to be working forever to begin with. So we either keep buying replacements, keep paying insurances, or buy a new piece of the same.

The photo above is taken by a friend of mine – Andy, and if you click on the link under the photo you’ll visit his photo stream on Flickr.
The creature on the photo is made entirely from garbage pieces. And this is what he wrote about the photo of the “Garbage Man” above:

“At a deserted rubbish tip miles from nowhere there’s a stirring.. a strange sound is heard and there’s movement below.. sensing danger the rats scurry into the safety of their holes.. all goes silent for few minutes then with a large crash tonnes of rubbish and dirt are thrown high into the air.. as the dust settles a robotic type creature, humunoid in appearance emerges from the depths..

The creature cranes its head skyward as the warm rays of the morning sun bathes it in light.. in a childlike way it tilts its head as if to understand this glowing phenomena.. Throwing back its head it lets out a spine chilling roar and with long mechcanical strides heads off in the direction of the sleeping city just miles away.. is this a new sentient being and what are the consequences for man.. Garbage man is alive and needs to feed?

The above is fiction but this is fact – Isn’t it amazing just how wasteful the human race is.. we live in a throw away world and think nothing of the consequences our impact has on our beautiful planet.. It will always be someone elses problem “why should I bother” most of us have thought at some point.. and i’m as quilty as the next man/woman in that respect..

We can only pass the buck to the next generation for so long before it will finally catch up with us and bite us on the arse.. This creature is at the “Eden Project” near St Austel in Cornwall (UK) he’s made entirely from rubbish taken from the local tip..

Totally Useless and the modern day Cleopatra…

Sunday, March 9th, 2008

…modern day Cleopatra…, originally uploaded by tatyveli.

Even though the Womens Day yesterday went so well for me – I had also a harsh waking up call, so to say. There is something definitely wrong with my eyes. Since yesterday I am not able to read from close-by and have to place books, or the news paper at arms length from me in order to be able to read it. The problem is also affecting my photography because I am unable to read the letters on the camera buttons even :S This is not how things usually go when your sight is getting worse with the age. It goes un-noticed for as far as I know, and not so suddenly for sure.
The …modern day Cleopatra… is yours trully with the use of some PS modifications, such as taking off the contrast and using a blue filter.

And this capture here bellow is a tulip capture and the tulips were given to me yesterday as well as many roses. I will be posting macro captures of these in the coming weeks,

...embrace me...

If anyone has expirienced this same eye sight problem – please share it here, and I’ll really appreciate it.
Thank you and I wil be talking to you soon. Wishing you a great week ahead too.
