About this blog


Hi. My name is Petra, I come from and live in the Czech Republic, and this is my personal blog.

I share my thoughts and reflections here – both in words and photographs – about some of my experience, about my photography efforts, about things and places that caught my attention.

The places I write about are situated in the Czech Republic and all the photos and texts are mine, unless stated otherwise.

After a great deal of thinking I decided not to allow comments on this blog but feel free to contact me via my contact form and share your thoughts.

The blog is divided into the following categories:
(click on the photo or title to open the category in a new window)

PLACES IN CZECH REPUBLIC where I share photos of the places I visited in the Czech Republic. I always try to add some relevant information regarding history and importance of the place. I typically compile the information from several sources including several websites and I often translate it to English as many of the sources are just in the Czech language. I never copy a whole article from a source, not even a whole paragraph, and I try to avoid using identical sentences. I rather try to find the most interesting and credible facts and combine them as I see fit.

FOCUSED ON PHOTOGRAPHY where I share my photo projects and their results and other photography related experience. I used to shoot with Canon 550D, now I use Nikon D7200. I edit my photos in Lightroom 6. There is so much to learn and focus on.

REFLECTIONS where I share my thoughts on whatever my mind is occupied with whether those are smaller or bigger things.

POETRY where I share the rare poetic expressions that come to my mind although English is not my native language. I love them, you know…

AROUND HOME AND VILLAGE where I share photos from my home and garden as well as from my walks in and around the village where I live with my family. Seasonal changes are so prominent in these posts!

SEASONAL WISHES where I share my wishes relating to Christmas and Easter and other feasts and holidays. I usually try to make a card and that feels quite creative.

black&whiteMISCELLANEOUS where I share all the other stuff that does not fit into any of the previous categories. There are posts about some exhibitions I visited, about bullet journaling, blogging, adult colouring, and much more, it is simply a mix with many ingredients.

Each post belongs to just one category. I use tags to link the contents in a more detailed way and across categories.

Now, when you know what to expect, may I invite you to read a post or two to find out more?
