THE 55TH - BLACK & WHITE MUSIC INSTRUMENT PHOTOGRAPHY & PRIVATE THINGS

Hello and welcome to a new blog post my cute little kitties.

It is Sunday again and I am a bit sick. I have an infection but I am okay and getting better every day. I am also recovering from the happenings since the past few month.

As I said in my recent post the 54th I had to deal with some private tragedies. I thought a lot about posting about them, but I think it is good because I handle them very well and getting better every day. The thing is that I try to focus on photography only here on the blog. This time I make an exception because some people were also asking: Nici, what is wrong, where are you and what happened.

The most shocking news for first: my mum and  dad died. My mum died end of May and died did suicide because he could not handle the loss. I was in a kind of dead also, I was like why does this have to happen to me and where is the love and peace which I had before in my life. I was running away from New York, traveled around the world, for example I went to China, Bangkok, Thailand, and New Zealand. I had a lot of time to think about it and to deal with the death of my parents. I mean I still have not realized what happened, I did not even cry. Just a bit, not really a lot.

The second bad news is that I am single again. It might be a good news for some people but for me I feel like I lost the biggest love of my life. We are still talking, but she moved out already. My ex-girlfriend gave me a home, always. She was always there since I moved to New York. She was the rock in my life. She was the best what ever happened to me. I cannot understand what happened to us, I am still trying to figure things out, and to move on. Actually I want to go back to her but I am not sure if she is ready. But I will find a way, as always when it comes up to love and to find out what is important for me.

The third news I wanted to share is that I feel a kind of burned out, clear after those happenings. I am looking for a new Managing Director for my blog and my magazine. I need to step back a bit. I have to. The blog and the mag is my life, all what I have, all what I risked to make it a success, and the story should not end here. I will still go on. I cannot life without my baby. The new interim director and CEO shall help me to make good decision and that I am not so much loaded anymore. I hope, that there will be a new announcement soon.

These are the things what are going on right now in my life. Some really private stuff and news, also to give you an inside view of my life. I think it is not a bad thing.

That was just the first part of the post.

I made a new series of close up photography. This time the topic is music instruments. Therefore I went to the historic museum of nation art and gallery in New York, took my Nikon photo camera, and started to shoot. By the way, all my equipment which I am using to do photography is posted already on my Instagram account @bl3ck.is.bl3ck.

Enjoy the photo series, have a wonderful Sunday and do not forget.

Be safe, be classy, be an artist. XOXO, Nici.
