Shadow man - the story behind my latest upload

First of all, I have to admit, that I 'm not good at portraits. I always get complimented on my landscape / scenery photos, and I love to do them, but I just cant do outstanding, eye-catching portraits. Not for my life.When I heard about the Big Visit in Vienna, I was hoping to get a nice shot of the brand new "Kortezh", the Aurus Senat. Now you know. I'm talking about Vladimir Putin's official visit to the Austrian capital. First I went to Schwarzenbergplatz, where... continue reading

The Turning Point

I once got an hourglass from my girlfriend on one of those commemorative dates. The hourglass was small, simple, fragile, but beautiful.At the time I was surprised to be gifted a decorative item, I didn’t really expect it, but I found it interesting and I liked it. I put it in my bookshelf to beautify and compose that scenery of words. It stayed there always reminding me that the time was passing and I was letting the books accumulate dust, lol.But on a certain day I was bored at home... continue reading

What makes you stand out when you're the small fry in the marketplace? When do you make... continue reading

Trekking story

In the previous blog I wrote about things that make us recharge our batteries. So, here is a short story about a trekking escape that I have done recently.The most convenient (time and distance) trails are in the Bucegi Mountains, which are part of the Romanian Carpathians.  Whether by car or train, we can reach the bottom of the route in two and a half hours. This is a pretty fast way to escape to nature, leaving behind the city tumult.  So, there I was, with my friends, in Busteni... continue reading

My Photography Story

I have owned a camera since my teenage years. I got my first part-time job at 13 years old and took my first paycheck to a pawn shop and bought a Canon AE-1 (this was 33 years ago). Since then, I have had a camera in my hands. I took it to school, concerts, everywhere I went. Sadly, I don't have any of those photos any more.As an adult, I dabbled in photography. Travel and vacation photos, food, flowers, etc... All in 35mm and had a hard drive filled with scans of the negatives. That died too.... continue reading
