I am passionate about photography, I love to stop moments in pictures. Very often I'm leaving far away from home to take a photograph of the place, interesting and full of exoticism. Not parting with my camera, because I know that my frame has not yet revealed all the time looking for it. I live in Poland in Krakow, a very old town full of historical monuments.
