Everyone that knows me well knows that I hate Munich and would rather live anywhere else than in this city and that, in fact, I grew up in the North West of Germany and never stop making this clear whenever I meet new people, because I’m still reppin’ and representin’North(R)West. So it’s a special kind of bound I have to this place. The “Block” I’m claiming to be from is Wuppertal, Elberfeld to be more precisely. That’s where I spent nearly my whole childhood and made the best experiences ( and then I moved to Munich lol).
A few weeks ago I decided to visit some friends there and spent some time and, of course, shoot. It’s been five years now since the last time I have visited my hometown so it’s really been bout damn time. It really was great coming back. 10/10 would do it again.
For me it was important to catch the vibe while chilling with cool people and having a good time. Most of the time this is what it’s all about, no further meaning or “message”. Not everything needs explanation. Just do what you want. Or what you feel like.
How is y’all doing? So this time I won’t excuse myself because I had some school stuff to do the last few weeks (I didn’t do it lol). Anyways there is still a lot to come on this blog. There may be just 13-ish people that actually read this blog but I won’t disappoint my true and loyal readers. I do this for y’all.
Actually I don’t even know why I am doing this whole photography thing. I just want to share the stuff I do, with others and everyone that feels like having a look at my work and is interested in the things I be doing, when I’m not sleeping or binge watching any Netflix shows and sometimes (very rare, almost too rare) Animes.
yeah. I got told my blog is very authentic. This was what I was aiming for.
Anyways back to the actual post this was just a quick introduction to this post.
This shoot was a few weeks ago. With a dude called Lukas . He is a really kind and sweet person. Was really fun shooting with him. I have to admit that I did not plan anything for this shoot, but his whole outfit unintentionally matched the location and he was almost blending in with this grey metallic wall because of his grey GOSHA hoodie.
I also shot some pictures on my analogue cam that day. This shit is starting to get really expensive damn I might need a second job. If a lifestyle/fashion/art magazine is tryna hire holla at your girl with the job info lol.
So I hope you enjoyed reading this post.
I’m out b.
And here the #35mm pictures are following, tell me what you think about it ( or don’t ).
In case Lil Fuego didn’t tell you privately, contrary to her promise of always keeping you up to date when she begged you to subscribe to her then (before the advent of Big Gelato) miserable blog, I’m gonna take over this blog for a week which will probably extend it’s life for another six months and make it resistant to all the lil fuego posts to come. My goal is to make about 3-4 posts. One about music, one about deep shit, one probably about some less deep shit and one about Qatar cause I be’s there now.
So I’m listening to Quasimoto and sitting in Qatar right now and wondering what I tell you youngens about today. Hm….. I just graduated high school (unofficially but fuck my prom/graduation ceremony (they had to put the two together cause they broke (which then again is because they suck at life))) and as you may or may not expect I’m all like FUCK EVERYBODY, NO MORE HOMEWORK ALTHOUGH I NEVER DONE IT ANYWAYS, I’M FREE, LIFE BEGINS NOOOOW. On the other hand though the way you conduct your social life might totally change for people whose social life was widely based on classmates and school in general. Now for me personally whenever I compile one of my dope ass outfits in the morning I won’t be thinking about how I will school these motherf***ers today (double entendre) or how I will impress my ex in math classes (of course not with my miserable math skills) and guess what, I kind of miss that. Like shit, this is some tradition you know ? Back in first grade when you got (or didn’t) them flashing shoes, made you feel like you had a cop car on your feet (cause that’s what cops are, under your feetACAB) like them original lil ones not the new ones for teenagers cause those are just embarrassing, and you’d be like “Imma walk in that class and show ALL of these guys whose got the most apple juice”. But for real for real ? This is all just something that comes down to the way you conduct your personal life and self essentially. So if you just reach the consciousness of self respect and not doing everything for the omnious “others” then the end of school is just a wonderful chance for you to FINALLY start designing the life you want to have for the next chapter “FULL TIME DRUG DEALING IS ON MA MAN”. You can decide wether or not you want to throw yourself into another commitment like university right away or if you wanna go travel the world, start a blog and become better than Lil Fuego (easy) or me (impossible), kickstart some new hobbies or interests, maybe even start making some serious mullah.
As a final word I wanna get serious and say that most of the stuff you want to do and people wanna give you hassle about, most of that stuff is fairly possible and achievable. Even traveling the world without having rich parents. Research it. The most important thing for you to do if you are taking a year off after skool is GET ORGANIZED. Watch seminars on how to get organized, how to manage money, write down your goals and dreams and learn to manage your time, remember education is not academic education but self education. Gettin an A+ don’t make you educated, it makes you hard working but not educated. If you want success in life or if you are trying to achieve something unusual e.g. your twisted dreams you must be willing to risk shit and go against everyone, get hurt, cry and bleed. So this was the first of a few Big Gelato posts, stay posted and enjoy.
