Hello World,

Let's get the feature for September out of the way. The Month has passed very quickly and for a moment I though it would change from Summer to winter directly. Still it got warmer after a while and I had the chance to photograph not one but two outdoor shootings for my polaroid project. Most of all my blog has suffered within the last month and maybe some online-game friendships as well. 

Before we get to the artworks I would like to point out the new twitter account of my brother, living as an expat in Moshi Tanzania he has now a new idea that I think should be shared and appreciated.

With his
"Dive in Swahili" account he offers a cultural and linguistic insight in to a unappreciated language . The few words and sayings I know from Swahili have already opened up my eyes to the inherit poetry of the language. I hope to gather some more knowledge and by doing so feeling connected to a brother abroad. What he needs now is support, shares, re-tweets and interested followers. 



 #kiswahili #swahili #wordforword #translation

Swahili [Coast] Kiswahili - The language of the coast The language you learn on this account.

Elimu ni bahari. [Education is ocean.] Education is an ocean. (It never ends..)

Haraka haraka haina baraka. [Haste haste not-it-has blessing] There is no blessing in hurrying.


- - - 

From this unusual sharing and caring part back to the usual favorites of the last month. September in that case or the 9th time this year where I showcased a few of my favorites. 

Others you can find in the collection 2014.09

or in a day (or two or three) a short list on my blog

give the artist a page view and a like

Hello World,

It's about this time of month again. Feature time, sharing is caring time. Since I got a lot of things going on from September on I think it's best to get my stuff in order on Sunday. For the last few weeks it worked really well to schedule my blog posts to be released during the week. It has the advantage that I don't need to be in front of my PC every day and every night and still have a certain routine with my publications. 

The art projects are a bit on standby, we had a really crappy Summer with loads of rain so my Portrait Project didn't continue. Although I do have the revised version of my poetry collection at home it still needs some touching up and then a 2nd order from blurb.

As always only a few images from my favorite folder has been included here. A few others on my blog

Take care,
P.B.

Hello World

I am a wee bit late with my monthly journal, I even thought of letting it slide completely but after the last few months, the changes, the happy times and the actually quite fulfilled life I decided not to give up what has helped me through some of the tougher times. 

My digital routines, be it here on deviantart, my blog or on twitter need to be re-kindled. I enjoyed a month of digital abstinence. I was in front of my PC but I gamed & watched movies and series. Everything that felt right. 

These days it feels right to get back in to featuring, writing etc. You will see when you check out the folder that there aren't many favorites collected last month but either the nice weather had me outside or the bad weather inside relaxing. 

I also took a short trip to Berlin and even got to photographing a bit. Expecting the developed images at the end of this week. 

If you have noticed my absence don't worry I am soon back with regular favorites and uploads. There is still a portrait project that I would like to continue till October I though. We will see.

Hello World

Everything is going slow at the moment, looking for publishers is slow, looking for work goes slow, looking for exhibition places is slow and today is such a rainy day that even life goes slow. So I decided to get my monthly features in place and get at least something done. 


As always on Pinterest you will find my Blog likes of the month. Equal to the Journal feature here on deviantart.

Hello World

I decided to change my usual feature style and showcase artists more clearly. I just recently have been featured in that manner at it is a more rewarding feeling. Still don't neglect the "other" artwork sections where there are only thumbs. This is not because of the quality of their work but my laziness. 


Maybe I am a bit early with the monthly feature but the weekend is still upcoming and what is done is done. 
As always on Pinterest you will find my Blog likes of the month. Equal to the Journal feature here on deviantart.

Hello World

I truly was wondering why everybody was writing their monthly feature till I realized that it is May already.

I think I found some gems again this (past) month. Take a minute or two out of your day to appreciate them.

Hello World,

I am dead tired today. It was a very active weekend and though I never considered my art as work I feel spent like after several days of labor. But on the plus side I can promise you that soon two more models will be included in my Polaroid Portrait Project (Here to the Blog Page). Nothing is scanned or developed yet but I have over 32 Impossible Films sitting pretty on my desk next to me. This is kind of an explanation why this feature has turned out as huge as it has become.

I browsed through deviantart last month with a keen eye for artistic nudes and portrait photography. Because learning through looking. I know I still have some work to do but communication with the models seemed to work better on my 3rd and 4th attempt. More about that when I got something to show. 

Now, the 3rd Feature of the year 2014. Make a pot of coffee, light a cigarette or pour yourself a glass of wine... Take your time and appreciated the partly well known and already have awarded submissions but others still toiling in an :spotlight-left:undeserved:spotlight-right: obscurity. 

Check out the favorite folder to look at all 3 pages it would be worth it. I didn't include all of them after all.

Hello World,

Oh how glad I am that spring is slowly approaching. I hope my photographic dry spell goes away with it. But the advantage of not creating much you got the time to :+fav: around and see what other people are up too. I don't know if I will have time this weekend for my blog feature but I will surely get to it next week. I have signed up on two sites to look for models willing to participate in a Portrait / Beauty Polaroid Project and it slowly gathers momentum. You can also check out my Pinterest account for things I discovered on the web in the last month. 

Now to the main event... a large feature... hope you got time to take a look at some of them

Hello World

I know it is still a bit too early but I can't sleep at the moment so I might as well do my monthly feature now. My first portfolio photo book is still available on blurb (En/De Use these links to get to the shop). There is another one in the making a bigger one containing some of my work with Black and White Film. I will let you know when it is out. Not counting on sales, for the moment I use blurb to satisfy my own personal needs of my work in print. Most likely it will take some time to get my blog feature up... but just drop by every now and then anyways. I also am on Pinterest but there it is more a collection of what I find on the net or on other blogs

Wish me luck for my projects this year, there are a few.

Hello World

Yes the old year is history and the new year is already in full throttle. I need to catch-up a little bit. 
The feature here shows the last favorites collected in 2013. Also check out the whole folder -> picture-bandit.deviantart.com/… .

I will continue in 2014 with the tradition of the monthly feature, with only one small change... Next to a journal feature here on deviantart, a blog feature on my blog there will also be a a few of my favorites be pinned on my new pinterest account.

On a more personal note: I tried out blurb.com publishing as a print on demand publisher. If you are in a sharing and caring mood you could go check out the shop and get the PDF or if you are flush a 48 page hardcover book of my creations between 2009 until 2012. A photo-portfolio I created to go hunting for exhibition spaces.

But now to the discovered artworks

Hello World,

2013 is slowly coming to a close and I already begin with a review of what has happened and honestly closed my inspirational shop for this year. 
But it was a year of action, travels, encounters with new friends and old friends. I put together two poetry collections and currently looking for publishers. I don't see any photographic oriented project in the near future but still try to exhibit every now and then. 

As always take a look at the whole favourites folder of November and take a moment to give a view to the selection -> picture-bandit.deviantart.com/…

Hello World,

Somehow the coming winter has crushed my spirits... at least my online-spirits. With the start of the new month I try to get back in to a certain routine. 
You will notice that I haven't :+fav:ed as much as I used to, my blog and twitter account is a wee bit derelict as well. But a cold, the weather and the winter time has me a bit stumped. 
Let's hope that next month I will be more active in all matters.

Hello World,

Well yes, I think I am not the only one who says that winter is coming a bit too quickly for my taste. I miss the sun, the warmth and the activities this brings along. 
Though there would be enough work that needs to be done inside it's still a bit of depressing weather the last few days. 

Now check out the last month of favourites

Hello World,

Only a few words here. I missed out the feature of may, also I almost forgot to do it this month. Things change, especially the weather, and it become a chore sitting in front of the PC. But for you guys and my peace of mind I get back in to my feature spirit.

you should not promise many things
or plan the future with you as kings
think about your way 
the path
the past
and see how far we came along

April Journal Feature

Journal Entry: Thu May 2, 2013, 3:40 PM
Oh Dear, Hello World,

Life is life... (and now I am humming in my head)

It was very hard for me to decide which deviation to include in to the journal.

I don't know for sure but I believe it is more than usual.

April also wasn't a very :+fav:-heavy month. Which is even a bigger compliment to all that have been included.

Also this would be a good point to apologize to commentators, favers and followers.... I am a bit slow with the follow up.

I do check regularly and your contribution are being noticed. So thank you!

March Feature (Journal, Couch Surfing, etc.)

Journal Entry: Tue Apr 2, 2013, 11:23 AM
Hello World,

Another month... check... another Season... not really no. It is still very much like winter... yet the time has been set to summer.

There was loads of work to get done this (last) month and a fair few of the chores got carried over to April. The March Feature is part of that. Despite my busy schedule I think it's best to keep track of your and the groups submissions and :+fav: every now and then... otherwise this page becomes a bit one sided.

- - -

It's great to see that I got so many new :+devwatch: over the last weeks... hope you won't be disappointed. There were times I filled a roll of film every week, but weather and work doesn't truly allow that at the moment.

Plans are in motion to change that.

- - -

My blog works out fine, and it seems my secret is out... Swiss visitors are among the top 5. with UK, US and Germany. -> picturebandit.wordpress.com/

Again less time to write, make up stories, surf the web for awesome content.... Still alive and kicking though.

I also re-annimated my old last.fm account... -> www.lastfm.de/user/Nathanael_G…

- - -

I also set up a CouchSurfing account (details I will gladly share via PM or E-Mail) and discovered that without a facebook account it's very difficult to get some friends.

:spotlight-left: Would like to take the opportunity and address my followers if you are a member of www.couchsurfing.org, please contact me (if you feel so inclined) it seems not even I know where I could travel next. :spotlight-right:

Journal Feature 2013 February

Journal Entry: Mon Feb 25, 2013, 6:44 AM
Hello World,

I enjoyed a free weekend, some time to gather ones thoughts and catch up with some online activities.

Knowing that I won't have time in a couple of days I chose to put together the feature a little bit earlier than usual.

As always I can suggest to look at the whole :+fav: folder of the month February... there's only a small amount showcased in the journal.

:spotlight-left: complete folder picture-bandit.deviantart.com/… :spotlight-right:

Also at this point I would like to thank all of you :+devwatch:, :+fav:er and random visitor

I was awarded my 2nd daily deviation on Sunday the 17th (today.deviantart.com/dds/?day=… date in questions DD page)

Mono Impressions - made to order by Picture-Bandit

thanks to all who included it in to their collection :bow:
