Is Fotografia a German word? Or maybe it's Russian? I can't tell what this guy is saying but his pictures are good. Pictures like the Paparazzi are pretty good and clever. Are there any photographers in the house?
It is Polish. Thank you very much for appreciation of my works. It is a real pleasure to be enlisted here.
Best regards, ASD
Polish eh? Not a problem!
Italian word too with the same meaning.
It’s a Spanish word too…
In Spanish it means photography.
come on! what’s the trick? it’s a greek word meaning ‘light writing’
Since you have recommended this, I will take a look at it.
I have a dictionary that will solve the problem, just a minute!
or, I have spanish and German and Grek friends i chat with in the chatroom at http://www.livinusnosike.com
I will find out soon!
All western languages uses words from Greek. “Photos” means “light” and “graphein” means “to draw”. So we have:
– English – photography,
– German – Fotografie,
– French – photographie,
– Polish – fotografia,
– Italian – fotografia,
– Spanish – fotografia, etc.
It’s interesting to note how interlinked different languages of the world are.
Yeap, ASD has given the right information. Only a small correction: “photo” derives from “phos” which means “light” (Greek language has cases such as genitive, accusative etc and “photos” is the genitive of the noun “phos”)
Just one more: Portuguese!
Yes, in Portuguese “fotografia” also means photograph. Just for the record.
In my eyes it means: painting, drawing with light. I am a photographer, too… and that´s what I do: I paint with light 🙂
I think it is the same in Esperanto.
