Safe place

Safe place

There is nothing more photogenic than red door. And if I am exaggerating, it’s only a little!


Have an apple…

Have an apple...

…or maybe two. I never can resist going into this store. Even though right now I am not on the market for any iStuff.

Winter mood

Winter mood

I hoped these birds will take off as I were taking the shot, so I could catch them in flight. Nope, no luck. I tried to shoot it again and again…until I lost my patience. Birds – 1, me – 0.

Mid-afternoon tea

Mid-afternoon tea

Actually there were no tea involved. Mid-afternoon was simply the time when I took this shot today. I always had a soft spot for funky tea cups and this store was full of them. It took me some serious willpower not to get one of these.

Out Now on Blue Ray

Out Now on Blue Ray

Taken somewhere in East London. I could have composed it better, but was in a hurry and couldn’t afford to wait for the right moment…the one when everything aligns in a way that “tells a story”. Now I wish I have waited.

Long shadows on a short day

Long shadows on a short day

Consider this a companion shot to the one below. I liked the shadows and how the colors were muted by the backlight. I only wish I could have taken a closer shot of a woman with a dog – she was quite a character.

I have to start somewhere

I have to start somewhere

I have to start somewhere. With a picture, of course. After all this is all about pictures. And I have to figure out how to post stuff. This was taken on my recent trip to Geneva, using Hipstamatic app. Shooting into the sun always produces unexpected results. I like the way iPhone 5 handles it. No more ugly red “petals” around the sun as it used to be with older models! Yay.
