few ordinary DSLR shots….

The weather was so nasty that I really didn’t want to do anything at all. Temperatures in the morning are already dropping to 0°C. Well, at least the rain has stopped… apparently it will start snowing very soon this year.At least it was time to search the blogs a bit and read a lot of interesting articles…👀🖥

I think autumn…

…has already started here. It’s cold and raining. And that’s demotivating for me. Hopefully the sun will come out soon and turn nature back into a palette of colors… which I’m so happy to change back to black and white. But today I will post a few more pictures from last week…. in color.

The spidergirl….

Thanks to the fog, cobwebs appeared everywhere. While taking a photo of one of them, I noticed that there was a beautiful spider girl right next to my leg. I only found out at home that it was a girl. Argiope bruennichi. Beautiful girl in a striped swimsuit…🙂📷🙃🕸🕷

clear & foggy 3 …

the last set of photos from the small Clear & Foggy project. It was the first time I ever used the Prakticar 35-80mm lens. Someone once sent it to me just so💖 It was fun to watch the faces of random passing drivers. The fog is always thicker in real life than in the photos. So the drivers had the opportunity to see a crazy person on the side of the road pointing a camera at a white wall from the fog😁🌁.… I hope you liked it 🤗🙂📷🙃.

it was november 1982…

And one negative film left the production line, which arrived at my home after forty years. I got it at a auction for about two bucks. He waited a week for a sunny day in the camera. Such old negatives are suitable to be used either with a flash or on sunny days.The result exceeded my expectations. A friendly couple of adventurers allowed me to photograph them and their horses. I was a little worried that this 40’s old negative film would disappoint and embarrass me. Neither the film nor my old Fujica failed. It was a chance encounter and I only had a 135mm lens(yes, the Takumar with the destroyed front lens) with me. In the second camera I had a color Fujifilm C200. Although again I am comparing the incomparable, the winner is clear. 40 year old film.

OPEN MIC…

I had no idea there was a festival called Mic. I would be the perfect star of the evening😁. Unfortunately I missed the deadline….which happens to superstars. But thanks to this, I got into photography and was able to take some “perfect” ordinary photos.

On the wall…

From time to time my wife wishes for some new wall decoration. So I took two pictures with a tea filter(Elementrix). When she returns from her trip on Wednesday, the approval process will begin… This year’s Perseids could not be photographed due to bad weather 😦

the photographed photographer…

Every good photographer should be photographed… just to know what it’s like to be in front of the lens. During yesterday’s trip, it happened a couple of times that I photographed Jarda on analog and he photographed me on a DSLR in an unguarded moment. We really enjoyed yesterday. We were also there to say goodbye to the Jan Saudek exhibition, which ends this month 🤗📷 Happy Sunday for all🌞🌞🌞

what you see is not what you see…

It is so. We like to be fooled by what we see. And I’m not even talking about how easily we get fooled by what we hear. The opening photo shows a rippled water surface in which treetops are reflected. The problem is that it is the roof of a car after a hailstorm 😁😁😁📷

the village: Central Station

Allow me to introduce you to our station. There used to be even a restaurant here, Yes, times change… Under the previous Minister of Transport and Industry, the reconstruction and repair of many railway stations began. The buildings have been demolished and in their place are uni cells. I often wonder if politicians have the right to denigrate the level of education. This former minister, as a servant of a communist whistleblower, is proof that a university education does not guarantee wisdom. The industry in our country looks like this station. This station can serve well only for photography. And only at night…

ten thousand years before the selfie….

well, it’s not that long. But technology has made incredible progress over the years. Still, I prefer a real photo over any selfie you take with almost anything. If you have a partner and a camera at home, let yourself be photographed. It’s like sex… it’s definitely better in twos 😉📷

oriental trumphet lily…

Even though the lily bed has thinned out considerably due to the vagaries of the weather, the remaining lilies are blooming beautifully again… their fragrance spreads throughout the surrounding area.

color double exposure …

One of my friends loves beer … he always amuses me when he says: The world is so beautiful, so why not see it twice 😉📷📷.I sometimes use the second exposure to complete the photo with bokeh

tinnitus…

Too often I enjoyed a loud sound on stage. Taxes for this are tinnitus. The ears of the photographed far older dishes still hear every frequency 😁
