Hello and welcome to my blog.
When I started this blog in September 2015, I had only a little idea of what I wanted to do with it. It’s now got 400+ posts and an own domain. Something’s got going.
It was the invention of camera phones that truly got me into taking pictures, though I believe that desire was always in me–it’s sort of in my blood. I had a Fujifilm Finepix compact for a while, then in 2016 I bought myself a Canon EOS D1200 DSLR, which I still use to this day. I make a lot of use of my smartphone as well.
I mostly photograph skies, nature, the city, buildings, places I’ve visited, animals if they co-operate, signs and random things I encounter in my everyday life. I also like to try my hand hand at still life. Not people or events, and I never take selfies.
About me, originally I am from Bratislava in Slovakia and now live in Manchester, UK, with my black cat Pepper. I’m single by choice and childfree. I have a standard 9-to-5 office job. I like coffee, pizza, cats, chocolate, long walks, visiting places, learning new things, Agatha Christie, fiction, trees, birds, candles, castles, Star Trek, history, maps, sleep, and quizzes. Most of the time I live in my head.
Outdoors – photos taken outdoors, i.e. the majority of this blog
Indoors – photos taken indoors, such as my attempts at still life photography
Animals – photos focusing on animals (including my cat Pepper)
Random and Weird Phone Shots – any funny, silly, random things I capture with my phone
Gloomscapes – my 2018 series with themes of dystopia and wasteland
Miscellaneous – anything doesn’t doesn’t fit into the other categories
Any post that contains a picture or pictures that weren’t taken by me is tagged not my pic. (This is usually something obvious, like a picture of a celebrity or a meme.) If you see any photo or image here that you think should not be here, please let me know and I will remove it.
I also have a writing blog, where I infrequently post my writing.
