Finally … June 14th I’m going to the Lake Garda. It will not be a holiday but more a trip but I’m already looking forward. A lot of water has gone under the bridge since I was on the Lake Garda and I strongly miss the Italian coffee. It’s still the best!

So I’m back from Warsaw. It was unique. This time I saw also the other part of the river Vistula Praga Północ. Praga Północ is definitely an unbelievable destination to check out. I definitely recommend it! Praga Północ is located in the central part of the city, is one of the oldest districts. The area is full of old buildings, streets, graffiti. My main reason to visit was to take photos of street art and was not disappointed and was surprised with the architecture of the old buildings. A lot of history standing right in front of you definitely worth a visit even better if you love photography. Almost since its beginnings, Praga Północ has been thought of as a not entirely safe district, full of alcoholics and an ideal place for illegal trade. But a district is safe that there is no need for police patrols 😉

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 😀
… 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
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
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.
