Take five!

Hallo Waugsberg, ... weil Du gerade hier bist, magst Du die 5 Hübschen nochmal unter einem besseren Namen hochladen? DSC00510a.JPG ist ein bisserl nichtssagend ;-) Viele Grüße --Überraschungsbilder 22:31, 30 July 2006 (UTC)

Ramsau revisionEdit

Ramsau revision

Gruß aus dem idyllischen Ramsau. -- AM 22:16, 25 November 2006 (UTC)

Danke, ich hatte das schon bei Dir entdeckt. Allerdings finde ich, dass jetzt, wo endlich doch einmal eine göttliche Eingebung bei der bayerischen Staatsregierung angekommen ist und man Gewalt in Computerspielen verbieten will, man diese Einsicht nicht durch die Darstellung der Exposion hintertreiben sollte, zumal ich befürchte, das Dauerbombardement könne dem Fischbestand schaden. Geradezu großartig finde ich andererseits die Verdeutlichung der Busschildproblmatik, die in ihrer Deutlichkeit und Eindringlichkeit alle bisherigen Diskussionsbeiträge weit in den Schatten stellt und sowohl Befürwortern als auch Gegnern einer Retousche in der Diskussion sicher schwer zugesetzt hätte, wie schon Wilhelm Busch es ausgedrückt hat: Nur des Bildes Kraft allein schneidet in die Seele ein. Grüsse --wau 23:13, 27 November 2006 (UTC)

Nachdem das Busschild ein derartiges Eigenleben entwickelte mußte einfach ein physikalischer Grund dafür her. Es fiel mir nicht leicht, aber das Haus bot sich als Ziel an, und Wegschneiden wäre mir zu undokumentarisch gewesen. Was nun den Fischbestand betrifft, so melde ich leichte Bedenken an, da diese Spezies bisher in der Szenerie nicht auftauchte und somit gewisse Zweifel an ihrer Existenz bestehen. Die Verbindung zu gewalttätigen Computerspielen scheint sich optisch aufzudrängen, ist aber rein zufällig zumal es sich hier nicht um Phantasiedarstellungen handelt sondern um reale Vorgänge, die lediglich womöglich zeitgleich an anderen Orten auftreten. Um mit W.Busch zu erwidern: Was beliebt ist auch erlaubt. (Meine Meinung zu Bildmanipulationen habe ich hier nochmal geäußert, leider war der Kommentar nur einige Stunden lang zu lesen) Ciao, -- AM 13:16, 29 November 2006 (UTC)

Kein Wunder, dass nach dem Geschrei um das Busschild die Fischwelt etwas Zurückhaltung gezeigt hat. Der Zweifel am Fischbestand hat mich sehr betroffen gemacht. Allerdings war jetzt angesichts der gefährlich gewordenen Umgebung keine Forelle mehr bereit zu springen. Dennoch war es mir ein besonderes Anliegen, im Interesse einer dokumentarisch korrekten Darstellung der Idylle auch einen Fisch zu zeigen. Einen Lachs hat die Explosion als besondere Herausforderung seiner Stunt-Künste gereizt, und so ist es möglich geworden, das Bild zu vervollständigen. Angesichts der engen Verwandtschaft zur Forelle erscheint mir die Verwendung des nur kurz abgebildeten Doubles vertretbar. Die Verwendung dieses Bildes wäre möglicherweise noch angreifbarer erschienen. --wau 09:24, 3 December 2006 (UTC)

Jetzt bin ich wirklich erleichtert, daß die Auswirkungen der baulichen Veränderungen in der Nachbarschaft der Kirche nicht allzu gravierend sind. Wenn die Lachse springen, dann ist die ökologische Basis wohl intakt. Eine pfiffige Werbeidee wäre es natürlich, besagte kulinarische Szenerie Baked Trout 2.jpg kurz im Grillfeuer aufblitzen zu lassen um so auf die Qualitäten der hiesigen Gastronomie aufmerksam zu machen. Aber gut, man kann nicht alles haben.
Wenn ich mir die Gegebenheiten so ansehe drängt sich allerdings weiterer Veränderungsbedarf geradezu auf. Servus, -- AM 13:12, 7 December 2006 (UTC)

PermissionEdit

Mr. Waugsberg,

I have been attempting (and pulling what's left of my hair out) to contact you.

I would like to know something about 6 GIF animations on your pages at wikipedia. I would like to know if you created them from original Muybridge photographs (or copies), and if you did, a little about the history of the photographs (not Muybridge). Also, a little bit about you.

The names of the files are; 100px-Muybridge_horse_gallop_animated_2 100px-Muybridge_race_horse_animated 100px-Muybridge_horse_pacing_animated 100px-Muybridge_horse_jumping_animated 100px-Muybridge_Buffalo_galloping 100px-Muybridge_horse_walking_animated

We would like to use some or all of these animations on our website. Please email me back at this email address; author@precinemahistory.net with a CC to this email; burnsp@aci.on.ca

I am not on wikipedia very much, but the user is User:Paul Burns

Regards,

Paul Burns

DrohnenwabeEdit

Hallo Waugsberg,

die Bienen/Wabenfotos sind klasse! Eine Frage: müsste das Bild Image:Drohnenpuppen 62b.jpg nicht um 180 Grad gedreht sein, sodass die Wände leicht nach oben zeigen? --Warden 18:43, 23 May 2007 (UTC)

Serie schlüpfende Biene
Vielen Dank! Du hast Recht, es ist verkehrt herum, man sieht es auch an Image:Drohnenpuppen 79a.JPG, wo es richtig herum ist. Ich hatte erst Angst, beim Umdrehen würde die Beleuchtung unnatürlich werden, aber es geht schon, nachdem im Wesentlichen das Blitzlicht direkt von oben kommt. Also werde ich es nochmals verdreht hochladen. Übrigens: Image:Drohnenpuppen 65b.jpg ist auch verkehrt herum, in Wirklichkeit liegen die Burschen auf dem Rücken, aber in dem Fall werde ich es lassen, damit man ihnen richtig ins Gesicht schauen kann.--wau 14:11, 28 May 2007 (UTC)
Das ist ja interessant! Wahrscheinlich ist es für sie dann einfacher, beim Schlüpfen nach oben zu grabbeln statt nach unten. --Warden 06:51, 7 June 2007 (UTC)
Nein, sie drehen sich schon beim Aufnagen des Zelldeckels und dann auch beim Schlüpfen herum, siehe Bilderserie. --wau 11:51, 7 June 2007 (UTC)

Rosa dos ventosEdit

  • Hello Joaquim, I would like to support your wind rose which is a fine work. Only, as the drawing is more exactly executed than the original, not so "hand-made", I think that the indications of the directions at the outer circle which give the impression to be hand-written don't fit to the rose as well as in the original. Would it perhaps be better to make them a little bit more regular, less hand-written, like a calligraphy which is between written and printed (example: Image:Calligraphy.malmesbury.bible.arp.jpg)? The letters or signs in the inner circle are nice, a bit surprising is that they seem to have nothing to do with the name of the directions outside (O for south, S for south-east). Are they not portuguese? - Isso foi diffícil, não fui capaz de escrever em português. Mas continuo a apprender a sua língua porque vou ir de férias a Portugal por uns días em Novembro. Vamos a visitar a Feira Nacional do Cavalo de Golegã, pois a minha mulher é professora de equitação. Depois vamos passar uns dias em Lisboa, quer dizer vamos dormir na pousada de Queluz, vamos ver ali a Escola Portuguesa de Arte Equestre e naturalmente visitar Lisboa. Espero que eu não tire fotografias ali que sejam suas! Cumprimentos, --wau 23:34, 21 June 2007 (UTC)
  • Wow, estou impressionado com o seu excelente português! Além disso, é sempre lisongeante quando nos escrevem na nossa própria língua, muito obrigado. Quanto às suas sugestões, vou analisá-las amanhã com mais atenção e ver o que consigo melhorar. Também não entendo o significado das palavras colocadas nos pontos intercadeais exteriores; não me parecem escritas em português, nem sequer em latim. Os símbolos colocados no círculo interior são também um mistério para mim, excepto a cruz de Cristo, que aponta sempre para Este, que é a direcção de Jerusalém. Mas essa não é a minh área de investigação (daí a minha ignorância), eu ocupo-me sobretudo da análise geométrica das cartas antigas. Was this too hard? if necessary, I'll say it again in English. - Alvesgaspar 23:59, 21 June 2007 (UTC)
  • Obrigado, compreendi tudo, só para "lisongear" precisei de um dicionário. Compreendo bem os textos escritos. Falar é um pouco diferente! Mas nunca falei com um português, só ando a aprender a língua com livros e cassetes. --wau 01:40, 22 June 2007 (UTC)
  • Olhe na rosa original: Penso que os pontos intercadeais são indicados assim em português: noroest, norleste, sudueste, su(falta "d")est. "S" pode-se escrever de várias maneiras: de:S e exemplos. --wau 14:56, 22 June 2007 (UTC)
  • Muito obrigado pela ajuda! Também fiquei a pensar no assunto e consegui decifrar os nomes: é como diz. Segui o seu conselho, fui à procura do tipo de letra que se utilizava no fim do século XV e substituí os nomes de todos os pontos cardeias e colaterais. Veja a nova versão, que me parece bastante melhor. O que acha da crítica de LadyofHats? - Alvesgaspar 15:56, 22 June 2007 (UTC)

Hello Waugsberg, I am interested to know where you acquired the photo of this German "Teddy Bear" circa 1954? I recently purchased an antique Teddy Bear of very similar construction and am trying to determine its origin. Thank you.

The Teddy is mine. It is a present I was given when I was a child. I think it was bought in Munich in 1954 or even a bit earlier, between 1951 and 1954. -wau > 22:30, 14 December 2013 (UTC)

Hi Waugsberg, I think you should read this. There is at least one photo you took among those that the Sopraintendenza ai Beni Culturali dell'Etruria meridionale want to be deleted. There is no consensus on deleting all the photos, but you may want to have the photos you uploaded to be deleted. Bye --Jaqen (talk) 23:18, 17 November 2008 (UTC)

Ich hab' diese Nachricht von Jaqen auch bekommen. Hast Du die Diskussion gelesen? Die spinnen, die Italiener. Dann müßte man ja tausende Aufnahmen löschen. Was kann man da unternehmen? Gruß, --AM (talk) 17:33, 18 November 2008 (UTC)
Unternehmen? Praktisch wenig. Theoretisch: Wenn nächstes Jahr niemand mehr nach Italien fahren würde, würde der Gesetzgeber wahrscheinlich nachdenklich. Bestürzend sind eigentlich die Beiträge der italienischen Benutzer, dass sie Restriktionen im freien Internetzugang fürchten müssen. Das Gesetz erscheint mir unnötig kompliziert. Man hätte doch nur einfach Berlusconis Kontonummer angeben müssen. Hast du jetzt Angst, an der Grenze verhaftet zu werden? --wau > 00:30, 19 November 2008 (UTC)
 :-)) Eigentlich weniger, da wären die Strafbefehle, die von italienischen Inkassofirmen verschickt werden und in denen für geringfügige Verkehrsverstöße verrückt hohe Bußgelder verlangt werden, die ich nie bezahle, schon eher ein Grund. Aber wie ich aus dem Fortgang der Diskussion entnehme wird sich Wikipedia solchen Forderungen glücklicherweise nicht beugen. Es kann einfach nicht sein, daß die Kulturgüter aus dem Erbe der Menscheit zur Ware verkommen. Schönen Gruß, --AM (talk) 12:36, 19 November 2008 (UTC)

File:Muybridge Buffalo galloping.gifEdit

Hallo Waugsberg,
ich habe mal eine Frage zu dieser Animation: Am Ende vor der Wiederhohlung stockt der Kopf immer so plötzlich nach unten. Ich weiß nicht, ob das an meinem PC liegt, aber könnte man das nicht bearbeiten? Gruß, --kaʁstn 16:27, 23 May 2009 (UTC)

Du brauchst keine Angst um deinen PC zu haben, der ist nicht schuld. Es liegt einfach an den Aufnahmen. Schau dir mal die Vorlage unten auf der Bildbeschreibungsseite an. Der Büffel ist auf dem ersten Bild kleiner als auf den unteren. Wahrscheinlich war er so frech, dass er nicht genau parallel zur Aufstellung der Kameras gelaufen ist. Na ja, er hatte auch Sorgen, schließlich stand er kurz vor seiner Ausrottung. Oder die Einstellung der Kameras war nicht ganz einheitlich. Überdies sind etliche Bilder drunter, wo er arg am rechten Rand anstößt, dort möglicherweise vom Objektiv her schon verzerrt ist und wo auch der Hintergrund sehr dunkel ist. Hinzu kommt, dass das Buch, aus dem die Aufnahmen stammen, sehr eng gebunden ist, so dass es bei einigen Bildern nicht ganz möglich war, sie am Rand völlig plan zu bekommen. Und das Buch deshalb auseinanderschneiden wollte ich dann doch nicht. Ich habe bestimmt einen ganzen Tag dran gearbeitet, um es so einigermaßen hinzubekommen. Allzuviel an Form hinzuerfinden wollte ich aus Respekt vor den historischen Aufnahmen auch nicht. Sicher, man könnte immer irgendetwas noch ein wenig besser machen. Aber bei dem Ausgangsmaterial bin ich schon froh, dass es so geworden ist. Das Hauptproblem ist der Größenunterschied zwischen dem letzten Bild und dem ersten Bild, das gibt den größten Ruck. Um das auszugleichen müsste man alle 16 Bilder stufenlos so skalieren, dass sie auf dieselbe Größe kommen. So weit wollte ich auch nicht gehen. Grüße --wau > 19:09, 23 May 2009 (UTC)
Ich wollte ja auch nur mal nachfragen. Und man kann es ja auch so lassen, erfolgreich ist es sowieso, da es in der Türkischen und in der Deutschen Wikipedia als Exzellent gewählt wurde. Danke für die ausführliche und schnelle Antwort. Gruß, --kaʁstn 14:04, 24 May 2009 (UTC)

Stechende Biene 12a.jpg

Hey Wasgsberg. So, I was wondering. Did you just catch a bee and get it to sting you so you could take pictures? seresin (¡?) 05:43, 2 July 2009 (UTC)

No, I hurt the bee accidentally while working in the beehive. As I had crushed a little the head or the breast, it was dying, but the rear part of it with the stinger still functioned. So I could put it on my finger and it was still able to sting. Unfortunately the picture is not sharp. It's not easy to keep unmoved to take a macro picture while a bee is stinging you. --wau > 23:26, 4 July 2009 (UTC)

Oh, thanks. A bee sting is not very bad for a beekeeper. (Though the pain is the same, whether beekeeper or not. But the swelling is much less if you're used to stings.) It would have been more sacrifice to take a picture of a lion eating the head of the artist! --wau > 15:34, 5 July 2009 (UTC)

I'm not a famous photographer whose name must be kept in mind in the year 1000 after Wikipedia. So it's ok if you write "Waugsberg, Wikimedia Commons", in this case even without mentioning the license. --wau > 13:52, 21 April 2012 (UTC)

Drone beeEdit

Dear Waugsberg, May I use your picture of a drone bee featured on your page? I understand that the correct attribution would be Waugsberg, Creative Commons, but please advise. I am a freelance writer and commentator and I am creating a web site called Plight of the Bees for a company called Syngenta. Best wishes, Lionel

Hello, as I wrote above: It is necessary to provide the name of the author (Waugsberg) and the URL of the license or a link to it. Best wishes, --wau > 03:14, 17 January 2013 (UTC)

Thanks for your gif!Edit

Hello!

My name is Laurie and I'm the Project Manager for na2ure, an NYC-based startup toy company. We featured this gif of yours (https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Muybridge_Camel_Racking.gif) in our upcoming app, and wanted to thank you. Thank you!

na2ure is all about designing science play. We developed a game-changing platform called ferret that classifies ecological data into an intuitive network that can be easily learned through play. The high end value of our work attracted STEM>STEAM icon John Maeda, as well as the VCs behind LittleBits, Sphero, Makerbot, and Shapeways. The science has been vetted by MD's and PhD's, tested by kids, and praised by educators as appealing to all ages.

None of this would have been possible without your work. Thank you.

The app is available on the iOS platform and will be released to the public soon. Be sure to follow us on Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/Anigramit) and Twitter (@anigramit) for a quick, easy way to share the news with your social media network -- and to keep up to date on all the great stuff we’re doing.

Again, thank you! Laurie Vazquez Project Manager, na2ure manager@na2ure.com
