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.

Polish cuisine

…was a slight disappointment for me.

Joke!!!

Of course, I like very much French cuisine and all their dishes. But Polish cuisine … is like the Slovene cuisine. Almost nothing new … maybe because of this I felt in Warsaw like at home.

Restaurant Stolica – a beautiful terrace, friendly staff and very very good food. I think it was one of the best duck I ate… except Manchons de canard pomme sautees.

nothing new … slightly different, much bigger, but similar to Slovenian Žlikrofi. Very tasty and very different types … we have only potatoes… Restaurant Zapiecek.

again nothing new. It’s exactly like that Vienna steak or Dunajski šnicelj in Slovenia. But so much better and tastier. This is the best steak of kind that I ate. Normally I don’t eat Vienna steak in the restaurants. But in a month I go to Vienna, so… Restaurant Portretowa.

same story… but in a new way… and so good! It’s like Krompirjev funšterc or ocvrtki in Slovenia… Restaurant Zapiecek.

I know, I know … boring but as Sarma… Restaurant Gdański, Bar mleczny.

like Krof… although we are eaten donuts only for carnival in Slovenia in February.

This time I didn’t have the opportunity to try Zupa ogórkowa … we don’t know this in Slovenia. Something for the next year.

 

 

 

Global warming?

I think a new Ice Age is starting… Just 25 days before I’m going to Paris. I see that even in Paris is snow today. I hope that the weather improves soon.

Winter in Ljubljana

Before the end of the winter, some photos of Ljubljana in the snow. After a long time, we were getting a lot of snow here. And I don’t like winter, low temperatures, cloudy and short days … I can’t wait to the end of the winter. And now it’s March and tomorrow it’s supposed to snow again 😦

I love coffee

… especially turkish coffee. I can’t imagine the day without coffee. I started drinking coffee very young at the age of fourteen but my first taste of coffee was much earlier. I was always at the stove when the coffee was cooking. I have always loved the taste of coffee. It was never something I had to acquire the taste for or get used to. There is nothing more inviting and comforting than conversations over coffee. Although I very much enjoy a cup of coffee on my own and watching people passing by, I also enjoy having it with good company. Having coffee with the people you love will give you the opportunity to communicate more and strengthen your bonds with them. This is the
trend of today’s culture already from the Turkish era.

Are you too a coffee lover?

And this part is about me…

6: The Interview There’s still so much I need to learn, I’m still rather fresh in this field. Since I conducted a few political interviews, I thought it would be education for me to interview a few photographers. One of them was Slovenian street-photographer Tom Plevnik. I had been following him on WordPress and enjoyed […]
