Love and Photography

Sometimes you can’t find what makes you happy, but person who loves you discover it for you.

That was case with me and photography.

I was always impressed when I saw good photo. The way photographers play with the colors and angle.

Always wanted to learn and to start doing photography, but like everything else in a life, there was always something more important than buying camera.

If I knew how happy camera will make me, I would have bought one long time ago…

But I didn’t know how to treat myself well, if I can say so.

When I got married, soon my wife noticed that anytime we gone to shopping mall I spent “big time” in camera shops checking cameras, lenses, equipment and so…

And BOOM! First wedding anniversary, maybe few days before, I just came back from work, entered our apartment when I noticed gift wrapped in decorative paper on the table.

Big gift!

I could feel it that was camera. I don’t know how, but I felt.

My wife was sitting on the sofa, looking at me with always beautiful smile on her face, saying nothing, but the gesture on her face it was like: “c’mon, open it, what are you waiting for!”

So I grab it, and then slowly, with awesome feeling I started removing decorative paper, and box showed up.

Brand new Nikon D3200 with 2 lenses, stand, bag and some other equipment.

She was looking at me, and trust me, if you walked in to the room at that moment, you could feel the energy of my happiness, and happiness of my wife because she made me so happy.

I carefully installed all things together, took our selfie as a first photo ever with new camera and went out, started clicking on everything.

And that’s how everything started. Way later, I think I’ve made 100.000 photos in few months only.

Do I have talent-I don’t know, but for sure I’ve made some photos which made me feel awesome, and yes, some people said:” That’s good photo”

One went to National Geographic official site, some small competitions… But nothing cannot be compared to the feeling when you “freeze” the moment through lens.

This week is my birthday, and guess what-my wife just bought me brand new GoPro HERO4.

Do I have to describe how happy I’m!

Thank you God for wonderful wife…Actually is not just wife, it’s SUPERWIFE J

I’m sharing with you some photos from my collection, and soon I will share some GoPro moments.

Be Happy!

Dubai Marina by Night

If you love photography, you will understand.

There is nothing what could relax you and clear your head like taking your camera and follow the way camera takes you.

It’s always like that.

You go out to click just 2-3 photos just in front of your house. That’s the plan. Just few photos and you are back in 15 minutes.

And suddenly, few hours later you find your self kilometers away, hundreds photos made, time to get taxi to get back home.

Same happen to me all the time.

That how it was 5 night ago.

I wanted to try night mode, long exposure, etc.

Went out only to to try all that.

An then, 3 hours later, I was on the other side of Marina, probably made over 200 different photos, receiving a call from my wife asking me if I’m planing to come home 🙂

This are some photos made at that time.

I just love it!

Chasing the Sunset

Made this photo during our visit to Istanbul.

Is not necessary to talk a lot about the city, I believe most of the people knows how wonderful city is.

What impressed me are the sunsets in Istanbul.

During sunset the sky become magic. But really magic, with a lot of different colors.

One afternoon I’ve decides to go a bit up to hill to capture this beautiful sunset.

My wife Emma, she was running after me, begging me to stop 🙂 (photographers would understand) 🙂

But i was going up to hill more and more until I realize that I may miss it. The magic moment doesn’t last forever. It last only for 30 to 45 seconds.

And that’s where I took the shoot.

For sure one of my favorite photos.

Sunset

Sunset, somehow for me the best part of the day.

Some people prefer sunrise, some people like noon. I like sunset.
Exactly that part when you can see the movement of the sun, going behind the hill or touching the water of the sea, so far, but so near.

That few seconds, maybe minutes it’s always open my mind with hundreds of questions.

Most of the time I ask myself if I’m doing right think by being so focused of my career, working so hard for some “better tomorrow” which may, but it may not come.

Maybe I should just quick everything, take my wife’s hand and hit the road.

Go for some trip around world, visit all that awesome places and enjoy the sunsets all over the world.

How does sunset look like on Chines Wall?

Or Phuket, Thailand.

Or Bali, Indonesia?

Or maybe Bahamas, Costa Rica, Cuba, or other exotic places.

What about Tibet?

Should we go by plane, train, a bike?
Where we gonna stay? Who cares, we would bring a tent and stay under the stars! Yes. That’s good idea.

For sure.

Yes, we are going. Tomorrow I will resign my job and we will hit the road.

And that’s it. Sun is already gone behind the line between sea and the sky.

I have to get back to the office.

My favorite part of the day is gonne s fast.

I have to wait tomorrow to continue the road trip with my wife, happening only in my head!

Maybe I will never get to know how the sunset looks like from the Chines Wall.
