Each evening, I walk back home... Working days are long, traveling, work, traveling back home nothing really exciting. But tonight, I felt like to walk looking at the stars like if something special was there. I was thinking that we - frenetic workers - don't look enough to these beautiful stars. Stars are here every evening, but we go under them without even looking at them. We even put lights as much as we can in our streets to ignore them or to forget about them. And tonight is special night...
I've spent my childhood as much as I could in the nature, walking, biking, just enjoying being there. But the most important was the friends who w
Time is running so fast, I remember myself 10 years ago looking at 2000 excited and amazed to have the chance to live in this next millennium. I remember all its numerous promises of high technologies, perfect healthcare, and various huge progress in our society according to our media.
This evening we will be already 10 years after and yes probably things changed a lot in a very short time. But do things changed as we expected, like we were dreaming in our childhood, or simply as the promises were made ? I don't really know, but probably not exactly in the very right way.
Today, or daily life goes around or computer, mobile phone, car, micr
Most of the pictures in my gallery were taken with my lovely Kodak P880. Unfortunately my camera died few months ago, and Kodak didn't want to repair, or even to have a look to it :( So I decided to buy a new camera from another trademark.
Unfortunately the filters I had for my Kodak camera doesn't fit on my brand new Canon, the diameter is different. I had 2 excellent Hoya filters : ND4 (neutral grey), and IR (infra red) in 55 mm. I took with these filters the picture with the most favourites in my gallery : Frozen. I managed with these filters to use 16sec exposure in full day light :)
Today I can't use these filters anymore, so I decided
I was looking at the map for a long time already. I tried a short way close to the river Labe (or Elbe) few weeks ago, which was so beautiful. So last week I told to myself that this Saturday will be perfect time to do it. Good weather forecast, free time, all conditions were fine to make this trip, and what a trip : Kolin to Prague following the bank of the river Labe. I planned two ways : the first one around 90 km and the second one 70 km, in case of problem, or I feel not strong enough to finish. This was an rough approximation of the distance :)
- 7am : alarm clock wake me up... Quite hard to begin the first day of the week end !
Czech Republic !
This country has plenty of interesting points, a lot marvelous castles, historical places etc. They want to develop tourism and I think, big part of the country business. The reconstructions, renovations are huge and impressive. The country history is probably one of the most fascinating of European countries.
As in nearly all indoor places, it's forbidden to take pictures. If you can pay they allow you to take pictures, but you have to respect their conditions : no flash, no support on anything, and no... tripod ! Is someone can explain me why they ask you to pay ? And above all how to take picture with these restrictions
