See my photos of sport, wildlife -big cats, action. And see how I shoot them in exposed situations in nature and on mountain bike. Accompany me in the Swiss Alps in video clips. Vertigo guaranteed! My Madeleine Blog is optimized for iPhone and smart phones!
Bengal Tiger CHANDRA
I tell you what Solzhenitsyn revealed!
«NOT EVERYTHING HAS A NAME.
SOME THINGS LEAD US INTO A REALM BEYOND WORDS..
BY MEANS OF ART WERE ARE SOMETIMES SENT - DIMLY, BRIEFLY - REVELATIONS UNATTAINABLE BY REASON.»
ALEKSANDR ISSAYEVICH SOLZHENITSYN
Nobel Prize in Literature (1970).
Author of «The Gulag Archipelago» (1973) and
«One Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovich» (1962).
BENGAL TIGER CHANDRA - another deep insight of ALEKSANDR ISSAYEVICH SOLZHENITSYN:
«THAT WHICH IS CALLED HUMANISM, BUT WHAT WOULD BE MORE CORRECTLY CALLED IRRELIGIOUS ANTHROPOCENTRISM,
CANNOT YIELD ANSWERS TO THE MOST ESSENTIAL QUESTIONS OF LIFE!»
Leopard DUCA SALINAS
do you live also in a topsy-turvy world?
«THE FACULTY OF SELF-DECEPTION IS THE ESSENTIAL REQUISITE TO GUIDE OTHERS!»
Well DON FABRIZIO, what a deep insight into the mental state of mankind!
DON FABRIZIO is the main character in the movie «THE LEOPARD»!
Based on the novel «IL GATTOPARDO» by Giuseppe Tomasi di Lampedusa.
DON FABRIZIO's upshot gets precisely to the CORE of the MISERY of MANKIND!
MANKIND WANTS TO BE GUIDED BY RULERS WHO LEVITATE IN THEIR OWN CLOUD-CUCKOO-LAND OF SELF-DECEPTIONS ABOVE THEM!
LEOPARD DUCA SALINAS - IL GATTOPARDO:
«THE POWER OF ACCURATE OBSERVATION IS COMMONLY CALLED CYNISM BY THOSE WHO HAVE NOT GOT IT!»
Well, GEORGE BERNARD SHAW!
Is this the reason why the PRIDE OF CREATION never listen to such guys like DON FABRIZIO?
shall I bring bad luck to all politicians?
DO YOU BELONG ALSO TO THE MANY SUPERSTITIOUS PEOPLE?
Then you are also AFRAID of FRIDY THE 13th and of BLACK CATS?
Wohoo! Have you already arrived in the 21st CENTURY?
How can someone still today BELIEVE in such a NONSENSE?
But assuming for a moment that BLACK CATS are ABLE to BRING BAD LUCK!
I think we should then BESTOW it to all POLITICIANS!
FOR THEY CAUSE ALL THE MISERY OF THE WORLD!
GANYMED - THE LITTLE TWISTER:
HAVE SEEN MY VIDEO «LITTLE TWISTER»?
ARE YOU NOW GRATEFUL THAT I HAVE BROUGHT SOME JOY INTO YOUR LIFE?
BY THE WAY!
HAVE YOU ALREADY SEEN MY VIDEO
Siberian Tigress ELENA
please support our struggle for survival!
I am the gorgeous SNOW QUEEN of the birch forests in Far Eastern Siberia!
My species, the SIBERIAN or AMUR TIGER, is still world's largest cat!
Why? SIBERIAN TIGERS in the wild are at the brink of extinction!
A detailed CENSUS held in 2015 reveals there was still a TOTAL POPULATION of
562 wild SIBERIAN TIGERS in the Far East of RUSSIA!
Now I'm the gorgeous MASCOT of SKATETRIX SPORT COMPANY!
Thus I'm able to call on you for YOUR SUPPORT in our STRUGGLE FOR SURVIVAL!
SIBERIAN TIGRESS ELENA - mascot of SKATETRIX SPORT COMPANY:
Our LAST LAGE RETREAT AERA is located in a far afield region in the FAR EAST of the RUSSIA that borders on the JAPANESE SEA!
The SIKHOTE-ALIN BIOSPHERE RESERVE was established in 1935 during the rule of Soviet dictator JOSEPH STALIN as a PROTECTED AERA that should ensure the survival of the endangered SIBERIAN TIGERS!
Why do you still sitting on the sofa in your warm living room?
Wouldn't it be nicer to turn some pretty CURVES on the ICE RINK in your vicinity?
Maybe you meet there also some nice people when you skates!
AND PERHAPS YOU'LL MEET THERE EVEN ME!
Keep in mind what MOSHÉ FELDENKRAIS once said:
«MOVEMENT IS LIFE. LIFE IS A PROCESS. IMPROVE THE QUALITY OF THE PROCESS AND YOU IMPROVE THE QUALITY OF LIFE ITSELF.»
ERIC MAURER - the former Ice Hockey Player in the Premier League - briefly and succinctly:
MOSHÉ FELDENKRAIS was an engineer and close combat trainer, who devlopped the known self-perception method who is named after him!
«NOTHING IS PERMANENT ABOUT OUR BEHAVIOR PATTERNS EXCEPT OUR BELIEF THAT THEY ARE SO.»
TODAY THE OVERWHELMING MAJORITY OF PEOPLE LIVES AS SUBJECTS!
Each MODIFICATION of their LIFESTYLE HABITS causes PANIC!
AND THEY COMPREHEND, IF AT ALL, ONLY AFTER DIKTAT!
Hence they love those politicians most, who promise them the pie in the sky!
«I CANNOT SAY WHETER THINGS WILL GET BETTER IF WE CHANGE;
WHAT I CAN SAY IS THEY MUST CHANGE IF THEY ARE TO GO BETTER!»
GEORG C. LICHTENBERG - lived in the Age of Enlightment!
MADELEINE BIANCHI knows:
«FORTUNE FAVORS THE BRAVE!»
«NOTHING VENTURED NOTHING GAINED!»
HENCE YOU MUST HEED THE SAYING OF GEORG C. LICHTENBERG!
«SUCCESS IS NOT THE KEY TO HAPPINESS.
HAPPINESS IS THE KEY TO SUCCESS.
IF YOU LOVE WHAT YOU ARE DOING, YOU WILL BE SUCCESSFUL!»
On this windy passage on a ferry, MADELEINE expresses her own HAPPINESS!
She is happy because she did today a FINE JOB!
Her PHOTO SHOOTING for a FASHION HOUSE was a COMPLETE SUCCESS!
«AT TIMES OUR OWN LIGHT GOES OUT AND IS REKINDLED BY A SPARK FROM ANOTHER PERSON.
EACH OF US HAS CAUSE TO THINK WITH DEEP GRATITUDE OF THOSE WHO HAVE LIGHTED THE FLAME WITHIN US!»
«FASHION IS NOT SOMETHING THAT EXISTS IN DRESSES ONLY.
FASHION IS IN THE SKY, IN THE STREET, FASHION HAS TO DO WITH IDEAS,
THE WAY WE LIVE, WHAT IS HAPPENING.»
Today we completed a photo shooting for a fashion house!
On the way back we had a windy passage on a ferry!
We availed this opportunity for a private photo shooting!
The result is quite good: MADELEINE presents herself as a very talented model!
«THOSE WHO CREATE ARE RARE; THOSE WHO CANNOT ARE NUMEROUS.
THEREFORE, THE LATTER ARE STRONGER!»
Everybody knows this DRIVER well!
But what about the VINTAGE SPORTS CAR?
It's a JAGUAR XK 120 OTS, i.e. the ROADSTER version!
Kept in this special DARK GREEN COLOR,
called «BRITISH RACING GREEN»!
And this characteristic sound that the 6-CYLINDER STRAIGHT ENGINE makes!
In the good old days SORTS CAR DRIVERS were tough guys!
And each SPORTS CAR MODEL had its own DISTINCTIVE SHAPE!
ERIC MAURER - the tough guy with a tough sports car:
These ridiculous COMPUTER MOUSES on 4 wheels are so called SPORTS CARS that cost far above 1 MILLION BUCKS!
Made for ridiculous RICH WIMPS who want to buy with such a VEHICLE an OWN PROFILE!
Young OIL PRINCES from SAUDI ARABIA and SONS of AFRICAN DICTATORS who spend their SPLENDID LIVES in LONDON or PARIS!
TOMORROW ON SEPTEMBER 11
I CELEBRATE MY BIRTHDAY!
Hence I organize a fantastic «FEUERZAUBER» for my friends from near and far!
Like Norse god WOTAN (better known as ODIN) in the Opera «THE VALKYRIE» by RICHARD WAGNER!
Now I hope that my «FEUERZAUBER» delights my friends too!
Or with the words of RICHARD WAGNER who once said:
«JOY IS NOT IN THINGS; IT IS IN US!»
In this spirit, your friend MADELEINE BIANCHI!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY MADELEINE BIANCHI!
ALL THE BEST FOR YOU!
