clear & foggy…

It’s been an interesting week. The fogs started and the inversion put nature in a different mood. I tried to remember which places I had photographed the day before..🙂📷🙃

  • Pentacon Six TL, Flektogon Zebra 50mm, Kodak GB 200-7
  • Praktica BC1, Practicar 35-70mm, Kodak GB 200-7

the ordinary shot, half shot, double shot….

the opening photo is a classic… 35mm film in a medium format camera. When taking the second photo, I underestimated the speed of synchronization – I still like the photo. The third picture is a classic double exposure – my wife and a cup of coffee. Either she was coffee in a past life or she will be after reincarnation. Coffee and my wife are inseparable☕🙂🙃📷

To be or not to be…

To be, or not to be, that is the question….
Whether ’tis nobler in the mind to suffer
The slings and arrows of outrageous fortune,
Or to take arms against a sea of troubles,
And by opposing end them: to die, to sleep
No more…

Even a beginner mushroom picker can think in this way. To eat the mushroom or not to eat it. In this case it is the species Calvatia gigantea. Sometimes they grow in our garden and of course end up in the kitchen as a steak. It’s a delicacy. Unlike truffles, this mushroom can be eaten to your heart’s content. If the inside of the mushroom is white, I definitely recommend it to diversify the menu 🙂🙃📷🍽

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.

Rainy weekend….

It was foggy and rainy all weekend. This is a weather I don’t go to much. So I just walked past the table in our garden. In addition, F1 was on TV so I spent the day watching TV. Nevertheless, I aimed the lens at one cobweb in the morning. And in the evening, when I went to take out the trash can, I was attracted by the light of the streetlights in the fog…🙂🙃📷 I wish everyone a beautiful and sunny week🌞🤗

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?

singularity…

The term singularity brings to mind some hard-to-imagine event. So I will offer you one form of singularity. They’re just ordinary pictures again… but I was the master of time🙂🙃📷⏳

the ordinary fallen plums…

a few ordinary analog photos in the usual place.

another stone age …

A few pictures from yesterday’s trip. The temperature was around 35°C and I had a backpack with more than 10kg of cameras and lenses on my back. They wanted to go on a trip with me. And we’ll start with pebbles…🙂🙃📷🥳

the bw red rose…

The two pot positions allowed me to have two backgrounds. Juniper and the sky… Even though I’m using film with quite a bit of grain, I think it came out nicely…

Sometimes I feel like a little kid. All I need to play is a small shovel and… and few cameras🙃🙂📷

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 🙂🙃📷

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.

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 😦

hell of a job…

At least that’s what this ledge-climbing robot claims(In fact, his random soliloquy is far harsher). Every time I walk by, I forget about him. And they always surprise me…again and again. His tidbits about work are funny. It is installed on the building of the Museum of Art in Olomouc.
