Okay: go to Paris

check into a nice hotel, and my plan is I’m going to eat some fucking cheese and I’m gonna get drunk. ― Anthony Bourdain

Or in my case, check into a nice Airbnb, and my plan is I’m going to take some fucking good photos and I’m gonna get drunk 😉

My departure to Paris is approaching and I’m not ready yet. I haven’t yet researched where and when Fashion Week is going on. I hope to be lucky and catch something on the street. So this will be my last post before I leave for Paris. A lot of research and planning awaits me in the coming days.

Travel changes you

As you move through this life and this world you change things slightly, you leave marks behind, however small. And in return, life and travel leave marks on you. ― Anthony Bourdain

For me…

a place unvisited is like unrequited love. A dull ache that—try as you might think it away, convince yourself that she wasn’t the right country for you—just won’t leave you in peace. — Eric Weiner

The vacation

gone wrong in Paris is almost always because people try to do too many things. — Anthony Bourdain

Travel isn’t always pretty.

It isn’t always comfortable. Sometimes it hurts, it even breaks your heart. But that’s okay. The journey changes you; it should change you. It leaves marks on your memory, on your consciousness, on your heart, and on your body. You take something with you. Hopefully, you leave something good behind. — Anthony Bourdain

The tragedy in the lives of most of us

… is that we go through life walking down a high-walled lane with people of our own kind, the same economic situation, the same national background and education and religious outlook. And beyond those walls, all humanity lies, unknown and unseen, and untouched by our restricted and impoverished lives. — Florence Luscomb

Two days ago it was the third anniversary of my registration at WordPress. And during this time, I gained 1,501 followers.


I would like to thank everyone who follows me on my blog.

I live my life

… in widening circles that reach out across the world. I may not complete this last one but I will try. — Rainer Maria Rilke

Recently I’ve been changing my style of photography a little bit and this is because of Shutterstock. Unfortunately, the street photography is not sold on Shutterstock or you need too many permissions. The Candid Street photography is my favorite genre of street photography and it’s always interesting to shoot. The Candid Street Portrait must be a genuine photograph of the person’s expression that isn’t aware that is being observed.

The quality of life

… is in proportion, always, to the capacity for delight. The capacity for delight is the gift of paying attention. — Julia Cameron

The next holiday is already reserved … Paris Fashion Week in September. In all this time, I have never visited Paris during the Fashion Week. I hope I manage to photograph some fashion on the street 😀
Although Paris will no longer be the same. During my trip in Warsaw, Paris changed … the roof of the Cathedral of Notre-Dame de Paris was burned. Notre-Dame de Paris is one of my favorite spot in Paris especially during Blossom Season. I just hope they will soon restore it.

So logically follow photos of Paris 😉

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
