Journal Entry: Sun Jul 20, 2014, 3:09 AM
So, I've just come back from my trip to Berlin, and, naturally, have a bunch of photos from the Berlin Zoo (how I love that place) and that means, hopefully, a bunch of updates as soon as I sort them out. I already have a few in mind that will definitely go up, but not all of them are interesting enough for posting. Also, I intend to finish Tora soon. I really like that story so I'll fight my laziness and finish it. xD That would be all. 

  • Mood: Content
  • Listening to: 30 seconds to Mars-Up in the Air

Okay, since I posted the poll and got 5 saying yes (and three pineapples xD) I decided to write something here in the end, although I still have no idea what. xD

I am one of those persons that really like to write, but are sometimes too lazy to do it, which explains why I post things here every other lifetime. I like to read, a lot, mostly epic fantasy, and occasionally those boring books you have to read for school xD I'm turning 18 this year, and go to the third grade of high school. I love languages and learn English, German, and Japanese, the last two being still on basic level though. My favourite books are from Discworld series (I just finished Thud!) and I love about every quote from there.

“Why do you go away? So that you can come back. So that you can see the place you came from with new eyes and extra colors. And the people there see you differently, too. Coming back to where you started is not the same as never leaving.”
― Terry Pratchett, A Hat Full of Sky

"Some humans would do anything to see if it was possible to do it. If you put a large switch in some cave somewhere, with a sign on it saying 'End-of-the-World Switch. PLEASE DO NOT TOUCH', the paint wouldn't even have time to dry."
— Terry Pratchett (Thief of Time)

"Light thinks it travels faster than anything but it is wrong. No matter how fast light travels, it finds the darkness has always got there first, and is waiting for it."
— Terry Pratchett (Reaper Man)

"No! Please! I'll tell you whatever you want to know!" the man yelled.
"Really?" said Vimes. "What's the orbital velocity of the moon?"
"Oh, you'd like something simpler?"
— Terry Pratchett (Night Watch)

And so on. I could probably post a hundred of this here xD

I also love computer games. Currently, I'm playing Darksiders, and Guild Wars 2.

Thank you for the :+fav:s.

You're quite correct about behavioural changes when shooting pics - especially captive bred or wild animals with regular observation & human interaction.
You'll find further corroboration in the descriptions with my images of Odin the mountain lion

Hmmm, I never thought about asking animals for a permission to photograph them, but after reading through a few of your author's notes, I just might pick up the habit! When the animals can hear me anyway. It just fascinates me how they seem to understand even when they are not spoken to. And you're welcome for the favs, though the photos were honestly so good that I had to fav them. I just couldn't not do it :D 
The-Dude-L-Bug Featured By Owner Jul 22, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
Thanks again.
I think the big thing is simply the act of letting them know you are acknowledging them as individual, living beings... 
It sure made a heck of a difference in the reactions of those animals.

Saying once more, the idea never came to me before, but I does make sense now that you've presented it to me. :D
