Wooden box crafted by Chris (photographed by Chris)
Let me introduce you to Chris – a man of many passions and seemingly endless energy to pursue them😉
You might already know him from his wonderful blog “Milford Street” (if not that´s your chance to hop over right now😉 No, wait! Read this first, and then you can hop over😉 ).
On his blog he shares his absoulutely stunning photographs as well as stories about his life (for instance: an amazing 2-month trip to El Salvador in order to become an English-as-a-Second-Language teacher).
What you might not know about him (because he´s too humble to share it on his awesome blog😉 ) is that he´s also incredibly talented when it comes to the art of wood-working!
After endlessly nagging him about sending me some photographs, showing this beautifully crafted box made from a recycled wood pallet, he finally gave in.🙂
So, if you´re just in love with this box as I am, please go visit his blog and make sure to tell him!!🙂

As you probably all know by now, I´m pretty enthusiastic when it comes to art😉
So there was absolutely no question for me that this lovingly crafted box that Chris made with his own hands as a present for his wife, had to be shared with the world, i.e. you!🙂
Being a photographer, Chris is already an artist in his own rights (and a very good one too!).
But I wanted to show you that there´s even more to the man than can be seen on his blog, a secret artistic talent if you like.
I also think that this is something many people may have in common – having a hidden talent or passion they´re not sure about sharing with others.
In fact, this is also true for me, as I´m not a trained artist but an art-historian in profession. And it is exactly why I started my blog – to show that there´s this other side of me, the side that does not only know an awful lot about art, but also loves to do art herself.
But not everyone with a hidden or secret talent might want to share it on his or her blog, mainly because it´s already dedicated to something else.
And that´s when it hit me: why not make a guest-post every once in a while for people exactly like that? People like Chris, who has a photo-themed blog but obviously many more things to be proud of.🙂
So, if you´re interested yourself, or know someone (either in the blogging world or in real life) who has a secret talent, just contact me here on WordPress or sent me an email!
This is your chance to go beyond the limits of your blog and share a secret talent!!!🙂
I´m looking very much forward to hear from you all!
