Hello old and new friends!After three years of silence (and facing some hard times for those wondering what happened) I finally pulled myself together and decided to pick it all up again. With 'it' I mean, papercutting, drawing, shadow puppetry and continuing selling my work on Etsy etc.Hello old and new friends!1 month ago in Personal More Like This
But also I would love to pickup on old friends again and hopefully make some new friends as well here on DA
When I came back here my ' inbox' was overflowing and I just don't see how I could read, let alone answer, all those messages. So my sincere appoligies for not replying.... However, all new messages will receive a most warm welcome and I'll always try to answer.
I guess, for now, that's all I've got to say!
I hope all of you are doing well and I am looking forward to view all those wonderful new artworks!
(PS: as you might have seen, my new name is Paper Tales.... more changes will follow soon!)

This week I made cookies twice and they turned out to be delicious (I'm not bragging, it's just that I was lucky enough to find a great recipe which was easy at the same time ^^), I watched Charlie Chaplin during my Film Academy classes, got a good note in a test, met my friend, wrote a long term paper, prepared the presents, and dressed the Christmas tree

Cat ShowCat Show1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Well, I was supposed to write about the Cat Show which I visited some time ago. You had and will have in the next few days (when I'll upload the rest of them) the chance to see my photos from there. However I also have some thoughts and memories which I'd like to share with you. I already know that at least one person is interested in it so why not ^^
The show I went to was an international one but I didn't really see any difference. It wasn't any bigger in the number of cats than the one I remember from my childhood. It lasted all the weekend, both days from about 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. On both days there was a competition at the end of the day, but I think the Sunday one was more important. I can't tell much about competitions because I don't like it where cats are dragged here and there like toys. I prefer to watch them sleep in their cages (or whatever should I call them) or play with other cats/people.
I don't have any idea why but most of the cats I

Chatting room about Photography (doubts, tips and some general talking): #Phototalks (http://chat.deviantart.com/chat/Phototalks)
Hello again and sorry by not posting any tutorials in a long period of time!
I feel like talking about one of my favourite kind of shots: long exposure waterscape shots (at beaches, the seaside, a river, a waterfall...) with daylight. If you don't know neutral density filters you might think it's very hard since there's a lot of light and the shot would be all white (burnt), that's why I'll start by talking about these 'magical' neutral density filters, because in most cases they're neccesary for these kinds of shots.
We can explain the function of ND filters in an easy way: they're a barrier which make less light enter in our camera's sensor, allowing us set longer exposure times. There are several grades (ND2, ND4, ND 8, ND 16, ND 32...). The most common are the first three ones but to me they're
Thank you!I didn't expect it, but yesterday 100th person - :icongabiangelo: - added me to their deviantwatch. I want to thank each and everyone of you - it makes me really happy to know that people appreciate my photography, which became a very important part of my life. I love reading your comments and talking with those who like to talk ^^Thank you!1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Thanks to deviantart and all of you who keep me going I started to really care for the quality of my photos. Each time I'm having a look at my gallery I'm not entirely satisfied which only means that my skills improve and I can do better I hope that at some point my style will become more uniform and distinguishable. In the meantime I'd like to feature some works of some of my active watchers ^^ I'm grateful for your support.

I must stay strangeThe haunting forestI must stay strange2 years ago in Personal More Like This
My town has a path across the strange forest
but hardly anyone can see it
that is only for the different
The Forest has a secret lake
you should see that, if you stay sleepless
at the fool moon
especially in June.
You must take someone with you
whose love is forbidden, who lives quietly
and unexpected of the society
You take a knife and a rope
and a magic box to pick up stones.
I wasn't afraid, it was unusual,
felt disgusting mist and dark silence
Met a man who didn't know
He had two stories on his hands
drawn with fresh blood,
one about magic future
the second for pain in the past.
He felt misunderstood
but that is normal for me, I said:
Stay and hold me with paint of destiny!
I entered in the black lake.
First I thought that is a mistake
I got into harm
his body was incredibly warm
when he entered in me with astral spirituality
I saw, he had supernatural ability.
I did n`t see anything
only felt like the trees had eye

The innocent,working people,who stand by ,
watching their lives to be destroyed..
Destroyed by those who brought us in this place,
by those who don't care for nothing else but their profit,
by those who are playing their political games on people's backs,

By those who haven't and won't ever be punished...
But we deserve it..We deserve all of these..

I wish I had been able to include more of you but it was impossible as the number of artists to be presented was limited, so I promise I'll do that in my next journal.

Can't wait to be able to diet my happy butt into a much smaller size after she comes... I've never been as uncomfortable in my whole life as I have been in the last 5 weeks. Since becoming pregnant I have put on less than 20lbs... Granted I was already huge to start but a good chunk of the gain is baby and fluid... the majority of the discomfort is in my pelvis... another one of those delightful little things no one tells you about pregnancy until it hits you. If any woman was actually aware of what she was in for before her first pregnancy the species might be in trouble...
I've stopped working so this is me home until further notice. It feels so bizarre and horrible and unproductive being out of work so I will have to keep myself busy other ways or I will climb the walls and that
