    Captured in three different ways

    December will end tomorrow so here I am with the final photos that I’ve taken and selected to represent the theme A THING OR SCENE CAPTURED IN THREE DIFFERENT WAYS assigned to this month in my 12-month photo project. The aim of this theme was to look at the objects and scenes that we photograph from different angles, perspective or distance to realise there is more than one way how to see and capture them. I decided to arrange the final trios into horizontal triptychs to visualise the differences, here they are. No. 1: Door If I am not mistaken, this door leads to a cafe but I had different thoughts to deal…

    Bikes and traffic signs

    I noticed that when I’m strolling along streets with a camera in my hand, I’m often attracted by traffic signs and bikes left on the streets.

    Geometry

    March will be over in just a few days so here I am – in accordance with the rules of my 12-month photo project – with the final selection of five photos representing the theme of the month, which this time was GEOMETRY. If I had been asked what type of photos I was going to take for this topic, I would have mentioned buildings, pillars, roads and paths. That would have been sort of obvious. Yet when looking for the appropriate captures, I found out that there is more than just the obvious. Of course there is… Geometry No. 1: Bridges After having captured the scene, I started to notice that the word “NET” can be seen…

  • Places in Czech Republic

    Visiting Klatovy and leaving way too early

    In January my hubby and I visited Klatovy, a town in Western Bohemia. There are nice places to take photos of but unfortunately the weather changed significantly while we were going there and when we arrived at the town, it wasn’t much favourable for shooting outside. Having said that, we didn’t let the weather deter us entirely from our intentions and spent some time in the town. I would like to share a few photos here that I took by on old church situated not far from the town’s centre. I wanted to capture the side wall of the church with the adjacent little house when the man with the children stepped in front…
