This year has started out great. I feel full of energy and want to take another shot at the blog. It’s hard to keep your own blog updated, when you are the community manager of the biggest and baddest B-Boy Worldchampionship! I love the Red Bull BC One and travelled more than 180 days last year as a photographer and writer. And, let’s not forget We B*Girlz! My baby!
But the biggest love in my life is photography. Check out my website! www.nika-kramer.com
I’ll try to keep this blog updated more frequently in the future, but can’t promise anything. There’s just too much going on in my life!

Am Donnerstag war die Vernissage unserer Ausstellung 19 x Landschaft. Dahin zu kommen war harte Arbeit! Mir fiel das Thema schwer und es war wie verhext! Ich konnte nie die Bilder machen, die ich machen wollte. Die Arbeit in der Gruppe machte Spaß, war aber auch nicht immer einfach. Ich bin auf jeden Fall an dem Projekt gewachsen.
Die Vernissage war super. Es waren im Laufe des Abends so um die 500 Leute da. Ich finde wir haben eine interessante und vielfältige Ausstellung präsentiert. Sie läuft noch bis zum 29.01.2012 im Studio 1 im Bethanien. Am 29. werde ich meine Bilder zum Druckkostenpreis verkloppen. Ich denke, auch meine Kollegen werden sich gerne vom einen oder anderen Bild trennen, also schaut am 29.01. vorbei und feiert mit uns die Finissage!

I wish you all a very successful, healthy and happy 2012! I believe, this will be the best year ever — well, so far at least! My life is getting better and better and I feel I am walking in the right direction. I am really grateful that at 43 I am still looking forward to new adventures and not looking back at the good old days. I know many people my age, who feel their best days lie behind them. I don’t feel that way!
I am in Vienna at the Battle of the Year partner meeting. Lots of guys! I am the only woman!
When I arrived at the train station, the people of Occupy Vienna were just meeting. When they walked off into the beginning snow storm I felt guilty. Shouldn’t I be doing more with my life? I am paying others to do the job for me. I am a member of Greenpeace, Terre de Femmes, have a foster child with Plan International, but shouldn’t I be doing more myself? I guess that’s another thing that comes with getting older. Wanting to do something meaningful with your life! Well, at least I think with We B*Girlz, we are doing something for women in Hip Hop. That’ll have to do for now because I am at the limit of my capacities. When I have more time, we’ll do something great!

Yesterday I took pictures of a shoemaker who has his little store in our neighbourhood. He is incredibly good at what he does, in fact the best shoemaker I ever met. He’s been working in this store since he was a little boy. Back then, his father still owned the store. All of you who have a great shoemaker in their lives–apreaciate them! They are a dying breed!
Check out his website: http://abgelaufen.com/
And if you ever get to Kottbusser Tor in Berlin–pay him a visit!

Gestern war ich mit meinen Girls Silvia Maria und Dina bei der Eröffnung eines neuen Bruger Restaurants auf der Oranienstraße. Der Laden trägt den etwas unglücklich gewählten Namen “Ketchup & Mayo”, ist aber richtig geile Burger Cuisine inclusive vegetarischer Varianten. Wir haben die Burger getestet – extrem lecker, unbedingt probieren!
My Girl Silvia Maria Spieß hat die wunderschönen Lichtobjekte für den Laden gemacht. Wenn ihr also Licht für euer Business oder euer Zuhause braucht, kontaktiert sie einfach auf Facebook.
Meine liebe Dina ist übrigens eine erfahrene weitgereiste Tourmanagerin, wenn also noch jemand eine Tourmanagerin sucht, bitte melden!
Yesterday, I went with my friends Dina and Silvia Maria to the opening of a new Burger restaurant on Oranienstraße. It has the unfortunate name “Ketchup & Mayo”, but really is a nice burger place. We tried them, they are delicious!!! So go check it out!
The beautiful ligth objects in the restaurant are made by my friend Sylvia Maria Spieß – so in case you need lamps for your business or your homes, contact her on Facebook.
My friend Dina is a very experienced far travelled tour manager, so incase you lookin for an excellent tour manager, let me know!

On Saturday, my girlz and I went to the Graffiti Box Jam. It’s a well attended Hip Hop Festival that happens at the Yaam each summer. Yaam is a great location at the river – always worth going to. Check it out when you come to Berlin!
Graffti Box Jam has all the elements: the rappers on the big stage, End Of The Weak MC battles, Beelow and his beatboxers, graffiti competitions, and dance battles. I really liked the dance battles! Lotsa people had come to check them out and the vibe was great.
The event goes on for 16 hours, but I left shortly after 6pm after having lotsa fun in da sun! I met a lot of people I hadn’t seen for 6 months due to my trip and all in all had a great time! I still think they should involve more women. Too much testosterone for my taste, but I know Dennis is working on that. There were just too many male artists and the vibe was a little bit too macho for me and that is also the reason why many women I know wouldn’t go.
Doesn’t help when some guy throws girl shirts into the crowd with the words: “Here guys grab them! I know you’ll need them when you come home drunk to your wifey tonight. If you want your food ready seven days a week, better bring her something when she’s waited up for you all night…”
And since I am giving you the link here to check out the Graffiti Box Jam – I hope they will finally take the “Pussy Of The Week” off their website as they said they would. I am Nawtee too – but hey guys – that has nothing to do with Hip Hop and should be beneath you!
