    PF 2013

    The end of this year will arrive in two days and although I usually don’t make a lot of fuss about it, this turn makes me look back. It was an enormously difficult year for me to deal with and challenged me in many ways. There is a saying in Czech stating that things are never so good so that…

    Admiring bouquets

    A few weeks ago my mother-in-law celebrated her 70th birthday and invited us to come and join a party thrown on that occasion. She has known that both her son and I like taking photos and asked us to take a camera with us to preserve some memories of the party for her. We promised, how could we not to?…

    Exhibition of bonsai

    A few years ago I visited an exhibition of bonsai trees in a near town Merklín. I was enchanted by various shapes of the bonsai and when I saw a poster a few days ago announcing this exhibition again, I firmly decided to go and see it. I did and now I want to share my impression with you: Merklín…

    Easter Wishes

    A few weeks ago I visited the city Plzeň, holding my camera tightly and eager to take a few photos. Cold wind was blowing while we were strolling through the city and the city looked quite gloomy. Nevertheless, when sun emerged among dark clouds, the atmosphere changed dramatically. A prominent contrast appeared and conjured wonderful scenes… I like the contrast…

    Have you ever heard a smell?

    A few weeks ago I coincidentally came around two interesting articles dealing with a phenomenon I’ve never heard about and which I find really interesting. Synesthesia. Does it ring a bell with you? We all have 5 senses and they operate independently of one another. But there are people whose senses are combined in such a way that they can…

    Pink variations

    I will never grow tired of taking photographs of flowers as they are so beautiful. These were taken in August in my mother-in-law’s garden. Echinacea visited by a bumblebee with its wonderful pollen coat… Hibiscus bathed in sun’s rays… And finally Hydrangea, one of my favourite flowers…

    At the eleventh hour

    Some time ago I read in English “The Woman in White” by Wilkie Collins and really liked the story and its characters. I met there – for the first time – an English phrase “at the eleventh hour” and understood from the context that it meant “at the last moment”. I looked at my dictionary and browsed the Internet and found…
