  • I went out again…

    I went out again…

    This time I was prepared, meaning that I had my fishing pole with me as well, thus I was more inclined to wait thorough the day for those perfect moments. And I think I got a few… moments I mean. I caught no fish, although I saw a few monsters breaking the crystal surface of […]

  • I went out…

    I went out…

    I was a little lazy lately with the whole going out and taking photos just for fun activity. I really need to start getting out more often. Since I am planning to do this amazing hiking trail in northern Sweden called Kings’ Trail, I must be ready to take some proper photos. As a result, I […]

  • A truly spectacular “Valborg” (Walpurgis Night)

    A truly spectacular “Valborg” (Walpurgis Night)

    I found out recently about the Swedish Valborg, or how is commonly known Walpurgis Night. I remember last year asking myself why are the people outside on last day of April, burning stuff. I’ve thought that has something to do with St. George celebration on 25th of April, which is present in our Romanian customs and when […]

  • Gone, gone fishing…

    Gone, gone fishing…

    I love fishing. It is an activity that heals. Fresh air, the sound of water, the birds, the insects the, smells, they all just make me forget about everything. The act of actually catching a fish… It is not that important. And that is why sometimes I lose myself completely in the process of not fishing, […]

  • Stockholm – A trip in April

    Stockholm – A trip in April

    At the beginning of this month we went into a city-scape in Stockholm. It was a refreshing trip that convinced us that even if Stockholm is probably the most beautiful and clean city in Europe, we still prefer the countryside.

  • Hornborgasjön, 2014 edition, take 1

    Hornborgasjön, 2014 edition, take 1

    Every year we visit this place because of the shearing amount of cranes and other birds that gather here, coming form the south, before they fly to their nesting grounds all over Scandinavia. Every year I have longer lenses, except for this year when I got the same since last year. But last year there […]

  • My first “magazine” asignment

    My first “magazine” asignment

    So, I got recently my first advertisement magazine assignment. I had to photograph all the company and all the company cars… It was the first time for my “night-job” as a photographer when I had to work an entire day. I was not ready to shoot in such a rhythm and for so much time. Anyway, […]

  • X20, Second Impressions

    X20, Second Impressions

    Awesome!!! I would really like to be able to say more than this, but I am way too enthusiastic right now. I am having too much fun!    

  • A bit of a winter

    A bit of a winter

    Until now, this winter was quite disappointing. I know there are a lot of “tips” on the Internet about “What to photograph in the winter?” , but what to do when the winter is like a late November, only with looong Swedish nights, cloudy days and 2 hours of light per day is not really […]

  • The Red Dawn

    The Red Dawn

    One of the first things that was impressed about here in Sweden were these specific Nordic sunrises and sunsets, which are absolutely astonishing. It is not about being more beautiful than the ones from Pacific or Maldives or whatever. The are just different and equally fantastic. One of the most special are the pink-red ones. […]

  • Simple and memorable

    Simple and memorable

    We are used to think about birthday parties like events that imply a lot of people, drinking, smoking, eating, bbq-ing and finally going crazy due to the combination of all. And for us who like those manifestations, it is definitely fun. It is that kind of fun that is heavily anchored in creating “memorable” through […]

  • In the backlog: Rainy day at Hornborga lake

    In the backlog: Rainy day at Hornborga lake

    When our very good friends from Belgium came to visit for the midsummer, we went for half a day in one of out most favorite places around here, Lake Hornborga. As usual, the place is very beautiful. But above that, the light associated with an unstable weather made it magic. Magic is good for the […]

  • Something about Lackö castle

    Something about Lackö castle

    [hr] I have been many times to Lackö, since it is so close to home, and I am really fascinated by its construction. I mean, there isn’t anything striking about this medieval “raw” castle, yet, for some reason, I am surprised by its geometry. It looks excellent from most of the angles. No matter how you tilt […]

  • A Midsummer Dream

    A Midsummer Dream

    I’ve heard people talking about their bad past life experiences with a sense of loss, like there is nothing left to do, since you cannot alter the past. Something happened and “I feel damaged“, thus, unable to recover completely ever. It is strange how this things works because I never heard anyone saying “I was so happy, I will never be able […]

  • The ethics of cropping

    The ethics of cropping

    I have submited recently a differently cropped version of this photo to 1x.com, convinced that this time I might have a chance. Obviously, I was wrong. I am not there yet, and to quote Laura “2 years babe, 2 years!“. I only have like 7 months of cumulative DSLR activity, which is leaving me another 17 months […]
