    Birdhouses

    Sometimes life is full of colours… …and sometimes it’s void of them… …but it’s always open to possibilities and creativity. Two weeks ago I visited the town Příbram and came across this interesting set of three birdhouses. They were situated quite high and behind a fence so I didn’t have much possibilities for finding the best angle for capturing them…

    Winter moments

    This week has been chilly and snowy here and to see the landscape covered in snow and frost has been a lovely sight to behold. We hurry through our lives so many times but there is stillness as well that’s worthy of enjoying.

    Icy imagination

    Do you enjoy watching clouds moving across the sky, wondering what their shapes resemble? If I’m sharing what I can see with someone else watching the clouds with me, I’m always surprised how diverse pictures we get, highlighting different features of the clouds. The other day I went across our yard, which has been in the process of reconstruction lately,…

    Curious attraction

    It is a curious feeling to be taking a photograph you expect no one else would like. It is a feeling, as though you were entering a universe that holds no attraction for potential visitors but for you. Yet you hear the calling and you can decide whether to follow it and perhaps seem foolish or ignore it and throw…

    Task substitution

    Planning is a great thing, don’t you think so? But what if you plan a task and then instead of doing it, you choose another one to fulfil. What if… … instead of doing laundry you cook a cake? … instead of dusting you organize your stuff? … instead of proofreading an important contract you call your mum? Just because…

    My photo project for 2021

I completed several photo projects I had assigned to myself but last two years I didn’t have any and I missed it. I need something to push and pull me forward, something palpable and particular, which is…

    End-of-year reflection

    I won’t let the cat out of the bag when remarking that the end of this year is on its way to arrive pretty soon. I’m sure many of us have been pondering over this ending year, how unusual and challenging it has been, and wondering what the next year will be like. Who knows… But I’m sure, even if…

    House in Green

    Have you ever read “The Woman in White” by Wilkie Collins? And have you ever listened to the “Lady in Black” by Uriah Heep? Well, and have you ever seen such a “House in Green” like the one below? 🙂 Brain sometimes connects the dots in funny ways… Green leaves and green roof Green shapes of the wood Breathing the…

    Rock garden rebuilding

    Wherever you dig in our garden, you most probably hit a stone. There are so many of them hidden beneath the surface that after each building work in the garden we get a new heap of stones of all sizes. What can you do with all of them? You can either use them or throw them away but you can’t…
