CHOICES

I took my camera, some money to buy food and coffee and I just went out. I walked until I took a seat with myself and watched the most beautiful sunset I’ve seen in months. It takes over me, this feeling like I’m on the right path when my Canon is in my hands and we chase the light together, my chest get warm and time stops existing. For months now I haven’t been myself. I can’t find the time and the energy to balance  ...

GET OUT OF YOUR COMFORT ZONE

It is comfortable to live inside our little bubble, a place where we feel safe and at ease. We enjoy the security and are okay with how everything is. We avoid anything that will shaken up that peaceful world we live in. When facing challenges and opportunities, we hold back, play safe, limit ourselves and our unrevealed potential just because it’s new and frightening. We slowly start loosing ourselves in that comfort zone and become  ...

As the days pass, I still find it hard to believe that it’s  ...

LIFE ON FILM

For my 22. birthday, my dad’s uncle gave me his old Canon, a present from the Japanese people after his field work there. I must admit I never shot with an analog camera before, not like this one at least, the disposable ones only, so this was pretty amazing. Sadly the film rewind button didn’t work and as soon as Filip and I figured out how to fix it, we cleaned up the filter and noticed a huge splash over the filter  ...

MEMORY LANE

This weekend I visited Osijek to see my dear Victorija from the blog Blue Turpentine. It’s been a year and a few weeks since V. and I met, but I feel like we’ve known each other for years. She was the person who held my hand while I was still a newbie blogger. She encouraged me to open up a Facebook page for my blog, contact some brands at the beginning and who shared everything she knew with me to help me out, selflessly. For  ...

A FREELANCE PHOTOGRAPHER
