Few words about art-thieves.Hi!Few words about art-thieves.2 years ago in Personal More Like This
My dear watchers, I really appreciate your support when it comes to fight against art-thieves.
But I bet there are also many people whose thoughs can be interpretted like "why is she so hysterical about it?". Some people say, that the fact, that some photo is worth stealing, is a kind of compliment.
Ok, so let me present my point.
At first: why am I so unhappy about reposting of photos?
Because, pals, if somebody just reposts a photo without any change, it just gives totally open space to other people who would find the photos on his/her blog, taking it and posting it themselves. And because the first person did not credit the original author, they also do not credit the creator. The more people do that, the more times the photo is reposted. Always without credit. Sooner or later, it becomes a kind of "public" property and original author has almost no chance to effect this situation.
Do you know this photo? Honestly, EVERYBODY knows it. But do you know original author? Do you

:-( and ZOO animals - PHOTOSHello,:-( and ZOO animals - PHOTOS2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I hate that thesis SO much... I feel like total idiot, I somehow can not write it. Why?!
It is my the last attempt to complete it, if I do not finish it properly, I totally lose my chance to get my second Master degree. Which would be pretty embarassing, because not only I already have all the credits I need, I even passed the graduation exams! After so much work, it would be stupid to end without the title just because of inability to write stupid 80 pages.
Also, I wish USA a lucky hand when it comes to voting! It might be interesting, I will definitely watch US elections interesting material for a student of political science. I do not mind to share my opinion - I would vote for Obama. But I do not feel like advocating my opinion, I have no problem with those whose attitude is different
The first few photobooks have been already shipped!
P.S.: still exercising, still riding a bike (two days, then a pause), still eating 5x a day. I have problems with drinkin

I am so tired - I had to wake up at 5 AM, because I had my driving lesson and also exams.
I passed the computer test weeks ago, I got 100% of right answers.
I also passed the exam of technical knowledge weeks ago.
But I failed to pass practical driving exam for two times! they say that only 20% people pass all three exams for the first attempt. But my second attempt was absolutely screwed up - I was so depressed about it, feeling so ashamed.
But today I passed also this part, so I will have a driving licence soon
I am sleepy now - today's journal is fitting, as it feature cute sleeping poses of relaxing animals

Accident in ZOO Prague and stupid peopleHiAccident in ZOO Prague and stupid people3 years ago in Personal More Like This
the place where I spend my vaccation has been always great and now it is perfect, because now it offers the last thing which was missing here: WIFI so I can be online, yay!
Thanks to this, I could read the newest info and I was shocked.
ZOO Prague is one of the most respected ZOOs in the world and it is also one of the most beautiful ones.
It is both animal and visitor friendly, as animals have huge modern and very natural enclosures and people are allowed to come close to them having no problems to take photos.
ZOO very succesfully breeds many endangered species, including many sorts of animals which are critically endangered and no other ZOOs are able to breed them or to even keep them. Prague is well-known for saving Przewalsky horse, who used to be extinct in the wild and thanks to the ZOOs, especially Prague, this species is comming back to the wild (do you hear that, stupid anti-ZOO activists?).
But the main attraction of ZOO Prague is a group of lowland gorillas.

Fennec foxes - why are they SO cute? PHOTOSHi!Fennec foxes - why are they SO cute? PHOTOS3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Can you believe that? Without any repair, "E" started to work just as I finished the thesis.
So stupid. Something or someone up there obviously hates me!
Yesterday I went to ZOO Olomouc - I saw SEVEN fennec foxes there. And you know how much I love them
ZOO Olomouc keeps them in two different exhibits. To be honest, both of them are horrible in my opinion - extremely small it took a fennec some 3 seconds (no exaggeration) to run around whole exhibit but they breed like crazy, so maybe they are satisfied. I somehow do not believe it - it is also very noisy pavilion with metal chainfence which makes VERY loud sounds everytime the visitor gets in. And the foxes just twitch in shock everytime the sound is made :/ I feel sorry for them. I usually play with them - those cuties are probably so happy they have something to investigate, that they follow your fingers and play with you through glass. I love them so much.
The worse exhibit is totally dark with only one strong la

Uchrm, I probably passed my graduation exams! Well, I see my grades, they should mean I passed!
Now I only need to re-write and defend my final thesis (which is what was planned ).
But studying should be over and finished!
I have not realized it yet, but if it is true and I really passed today's exams (I am always nervous that secretary was wrong and she wrote wrong grades to school info system ), then my studying is totally over and finished!
So if I wake up tomorrow to find the same grades as I found today, I will be happy
But to be honest, in last days, I was SO nervous that I ate literally everything I could, almost biting the furniture. And I did not have a second to waste, so no bike, no exercise. So wow, more free time now, more moving now. How cool!
I can not wait to be covered with sweat and to have a muscle pain after sporting once again (but it is true, I like to be "tired" like that )
Thanks for support, people!
Awesome cute animals - PHOTOSHello!Awesome cute animals - PHOTOS3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I am still so sleepy I go to bed at 9 PM these days - so embarrasing
I also had to visit a doctor today (she wanted to check my blood and such, because she did not like my weight *is very ashamed*), nurse took my blood, which is always a horror for me. Well, I hope they would not find any awful illness like diabetes or so, I am scared
I came to the room and I was like: ,,Hello! I mean... you do not need to test my blood. I know why I am fat! It is because I used to eat only two big and quite unhealthy meals a day and I did not move at all! I started having 5 meals a day and I exercise - and I lost weight immediately!"
And the nurse smiled and said: ,,oh, you are afraid of a needle, are not you?"
Me: ,,Uh huh..."
And a mystery: after two months, I have almost the same weight, I lost only few kilos but in fact, I am absolutely sure I am much less fat. I really can wear clothes which were too small two months ago. I am really 100% sure I am less fat. But why doe

We had fun, it was amazing to meet again
It made me happy
Only one bad thing: usually I wish we could be together for many many hours, but I was so freezing I really wanted to be back in the bus this time the temperature was not that low at all, but somehow, together with weather, it made me freeze. Nah.
But I am still very happy I saw my best friend
Thanks for Aleek, Allerlei

At third, today I post photos of my beloved animal. This is a blackbird - in Czech it is kos černý. Kos is a special name for this species and "černý" means black
This bird is VERY common in my country. Fortunately, because it is a fantastic creature. I am happy I can meet the literally everywhere - even when I just look out of the window, I have a chance to see even several of them.
Those birds are popular here - they are wonderful, their singing is melodic, loud and very beautiful and blackbirds

Thank you very much for incredible 270 answers under my last journal - I felt like Humon, having so many comments on such cultural issue! thank you! It was very interesting to read them - sorry, I can not answer all of them, but I read them!
At second, I am unhappy. Everything just seems to go wrong, I feel so useless and absolutely not able to do anything.
And honestly, dA also did not please me.
After some nice long pause, two of my photos were stolen by two different persons, who refused to remove those shots when I told them to do it.
So I reported them through Help desk.
You surely know that my photos are signed. As an evidence, I sent the originals to dA, so staff could clearly see my signature. That signature is visible also on stolen photo, which is just poorly edited.
But dA refused to remove it!
They said they need me to strictly say some "phrase" like ,,I swear that I am really an original author and owner of copyright"
Honestly I felt like an idiot and

Catch my 891 333 views and send me a printscreen as a proof VIA NOTE to win a feature!
Also: there is a SMALL chance I might visit Berlin and its two ZOOs this weekend.
Please, do you know those ZOOs?
I always check the ZOOs I want to visit, trying to see work of another photographers. It usually shows me if the ZOO is photographer-friendly or not. Berlin is considered to be VERY modern and famous, but it... it seems to be SO photographer-unfriendly!
Do you have some experience with photography in ZOO Berlin and tierpark Berlin, please?
Also, a question...
I always used to have some 25-30 000 pageviews a month. It was a kind of standard. I often had 1 000 views a day.
But since some time, I have only some 15 000 pageviews a month...
To let you know what I mean: try to choose 2012 (and look at the change since April) and 2011 to see the difference (http://woxys.deviantart.com/stats/pagevi
News, thieves again, one word + ZOO PhotosHi palsNews, thieves again, one word + ZOO Photos3 years ago in Personal More Like This
thank you for lovely messages under my last journal they pleased me!
Nah, I tried to count my BMI (I know that BMI is just an option and can not be applied precisely) - when I started loosing weight, I was in area of Obesity II. Now I am in Obesity I, but already very close to just "overweight". I was just annoyed when some women magazine counted my ideal weight - it said I should be 48 kilo. WUT?! Ok, I am very short, but I really do not want to be skinny! I would like to reach 60 kilos to be healthy, in BMI area of "normal weight", but curvy and healthy. Having less than 50 kilos does not seem normal to me!
Since I started using a scale to control my weight, I lost 15 kilos. But I am pretty sure I lost another kilos before I used the scale, so altogether, I have already lost some 20 kilos, I think but I am STILL very overweight and I need to lose another 17 kilos. Huh, so much!
But the best part is, that I was losing it quite slowly, so I do not get kil

I would like to thank you for all the donations, sold prints and little financial gifts you sent me through all those years!
I finally sent them to my Czech bank account and everything seems to be ok.
Thank you once again!
Of course I am still grateful for any donation, it helps me to visit ZOOs and take new photos!
I am pretty depressed and feeling dumb now, thanks to some family events. Dealing with stubborn person is always exhausting, kind of annoying and also emotional - especially when you DO love that person, you know it suffers, but at the same time, its behavior is hurting and everything but not thoughtful
And I got some weight back
I need to be more harsh at myself! What a stinky weak fat butter I am.
Oh, that Joseph Kony thing.
Umh... honestly, I am kind of amused to see how many people seem to be thrilled about it NOW - those, who care about world's events usually know about this "turning kidnapped kids to soldiers" for longer time.

Do not forget 755 555 Kiriban! It is really close.
I wish I could visit some ZOO, I really miss my photo trips...
But it is -10°C or even -14 °C a day, which is pretty cold for the Czech republic. I know that in your country such temperature might be common, but the Czechs are not used to it. My hands are freezing even with gloves and even two scarves are not enough to protect my face and neck from cold wind. So I do not feel like visiting any ZOO, I do not think it would be possible to stay near wolves and wait for a good photo
But please, keep your fingers crossed for me - on Sunday, I might visit one foreign facility which keeps black wolves!
Finally, there is some show, so I still hope to get some interesting photos.
