Traveling

it gives you home in thousand strange places, then leaves you a stranger in your own land. – Ibn Battuta

Now it’s official. I’m returning to Warsaw on April 10th. This time I booked an apartment near Charlotte Menora. So I’ll have the best breakfast near. This time I need to see the other side of the Vistula River – Stara Praga and Praga-Północ. I’m so happy to see Warsaw again 😀

Don’t worry about how things are going to work out, just believe that they will…

Btw… just 45 days until my next trip to Warsaw 😉

Sometimes I dream

… about being a good father and a good husband. And sometimes it feels really close. But then other times it seems silly like it would ruin my whole life. And it’s not just a fear of commitment or that I’m incapable of caring or loving because… I can. It’s just that, if I’m totally honest with myself I think I’d rather die knowing that I was really good at something. That I had excelled in some way than that I’d just been in a nice, caring relationship. Before Sunrise – Quotes

p.s. btw this is me 😉

OK, well this was my thought…

50,000 years ago, there are not even a million people on the planet. 10,000 years ago, there’s, like, two million people on the planet. Now there’s between five and six billion people on the planet, right? Now, if we all have our own, like, individual, unique soul, right, where do they all come from? You know, are modern souls only a fraction of the original souls? ‘Cause if they are, that represents a 5,000 to 1 split of each soul in the last 50,000 years, which is, like, a blip in the Earth’s time. You know, so at best we’re like these tiny fractions of people, you know, walking… I mean, is that why we’re so scattered? You know, is that why we’re all so specialized? – Before Sunrise Quotes

If there’s any kind of magic in this world…

it must be in the attempt of understanding someone, sharing something. I know it’s almost impossible to succeed… but who cares, really? The answer must be in the attempt. – Before Sunrise Quotes

The Old Way

Lately, I have a little lack of motivation. So I had to try something new/old. After a long time I took in hands my old camera, which I received as a gift a few years ago, the Fujica ST705w and the classic Kodak bw400cn (35mm Roll Film, 36 Exposures). What a feeling when you smell a film and load it in the camera. Since you have only 36 shots, you’re thinking a little differently when and how you will press the shutter release button.

And then you waiting … you do not know what you’ve done, or the image is in focus, or the lighting is right. And finally you get a developed negative film… what a joy. I still remember how it used to be when you developed a negative film after traveling and then that waiting. Yes I’m old almost like my Fujica.

From Ljubljana

I really don’t remember when I last posted photos from Ljubljana … stupid me. But nevertheless … I travel to Vienna next Sunday for one week. Somehow I have not yet gotten euphoria because I don’t know what to expect. Everybody asks me how I hadn’t been to Vienna yet … I know, but Vienna is too close to Slovenia, and I’ve always delayed. So my next destination is Vienna!

This time I’m posting some photos from Ljubljana. I’m still photographing in Ljubljana, but less than I used to.
