the sky is gray…

like the facade of our house. Let’s hope for a few more sunny days. Soothing autumn colors appear only in the Sun.

few shots…

One of the photos caught my eye already on the negative when I took it out of the fixer… I spent a while trying to remember where I took the picture 🙂📷🙃🌞

to the forest and back…

In addition to several mushrooms, I also took several photos. All the photos were taken on a color Kodak, but some of them in black and white are simply better. Have You wonderful Sunday dears🌞🙂🙃📷

on an old windmill….

…i found a declaration of love on the wall. I understand these forms of declaration. Even if they are in places where they shouldn’t be. But you can’t explain to oxytocin. Basically, I envy them… Have You a beautiful Saturday dears🌞💖

what imprint is left behind is up to us…

Today I thought of adding one photo to the collection of photos from our small airport. It’s just fun… but have you ever thought about what we leave behind for the future?

behind the fence…

Anything can be behind the fence. A treasure, a wreck, a flower… Sometimes we can find ourselves behind the fence too. Only we decide which side of the fence we stand on… Have You a wonderful day on the right side dears🌞📷🙃🙂

Outdoor atelier 2

Sometimes quite interesting photos are taken. Although these photos will not be suitable for an encyclopedia of flowers, they will suffice as a memory. Intro is double-exposure too… a hippie style 🙂🙃📷

Fujifilm 200(35mm) + Acros 100II(medium format)

the outdoor atelier…

I decided that my model would be an old tree stump. The opening screen shows a tree stump in a city park. The other images of one model are taken from the Ecce Homo turn of race, which is attractive to the spectators. I took pictures again with everything I had with me🙃🙂📷

SMC Takumar 55mm(Fomapan F400), Hoya HMC 35-105mm(Fujifilm 2000), Samyang 135mm(Nikon D800) and intro was taken by Samyang 135 + tea filter

the long exposures…

I didn’t want to sleep yesterday. I thought of taking a few pictures. I set up three cameras with different film sensitivities, pointed the lenses at the Polaris and opened the shutters. The opening image is Fomapan 400 exposed for 20 minutes. The second Fujifilm 200 image exposed for 30 minutes and the last image is the least sensitive Acros 100 II film,exposed for a full hour and a half. But since my vision is getting worse, I couldn’t focusing well. I would slap myself😠📷🌟.On the other hand, analog startrails are not very common. Two Perseids were also captured on the initial image – an experienced observer will spot them right away

the cows and the star…

the day before yesterday, right after I took my wife to the station in the morning, I rushed to the hill to photograph the rising of our nearest star. I could have written that I wanted to photograph the sunrise, but this is also true. On the way I noticed a herd of cows having breakfast… breakfast in the grass and in the mist under the light of star. Romantic.

Maybe yes…

I wondered if the location of the bins was ideal in terms of promoting healthy eating. But a little decadence can’t hurt…

And I’ll add a few ordinary shots.Despite the fact that the sky was gray and it looked like it would start raining at any moment, it did not detract from the colors and the BW photos got their atmosphere

Battle DSLR(Jared) vs. SLR(Mic)

Today I read such a sad article that one era of cameras is ending. Both Nikon and Canon have announced the end of DSLR development and will continue with mirrorless only. Progress cannot be stopped. Especially when 99.9% of people take photos with their mobile phones. And the best camera is always the one you have with you. Which is indeed a mobile. I didn’t even get to really make friends with DSLRs and now I’ll be able to buy their last ever best models. Fortunately, after all these decades, I know that the photographer and the lens make the photo, Everything else in between is just a box.

If I write….

… in a post that I enjoyed taking photos the day before, there is a real possibility that I will too many posts with too many photos… 😁📷

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🌞🌞🌞

BW day…

It rained today after the sweltering heat…which is the perfect time to hide in the darkroom and try to turn back time.

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
