A postcard from Chicago

DuSable Bridge leading practically into the Tribune Tower is one of the most commonly taken perspectives in Chicago, to a point where it deserves the designation of iconic. My take on it is neither original nor superior to any other photographs of this view. It scores pretty high on my…

A place in my memory: Lake Como

This picture is comparatively minimalist, imperfectly composed, and not related to any specific occurrence. Rather, it offers a general recollection of tranquility that I have come to associate with the incomparable Lake Como. It should be noted that my only to-date stay on Lake Como occurred at the height of…

A bit of Philadelphia

One of Kimmy’s volleyball tournaments took place a couple of weeks ago in Philadelphia. I have been to the City of Brotherly Love many times before, but always with a very specific intraday purpose in mind, which limited my photographic exploits. This time around, I gave myself a bigger window…

A place in my memory: Mottingham

Majority of my readers would most likely not know Mottingham. Do you mean Nottingham, of Robin Hood fame?… Native Londoners may recognize the name of the village but give me a quizzical look as to why I would choose to highlight a rather nondescript location instead of one of hundreds…

A rainy morning in Dublin

My ambitious schedule on the recent trip to the British Isles left me only the morning of the day of the departure for a stroll around central Dublin. To a certain degree, that was appropriate: Dublin is a pleasant enough town, but it is not generously endowed with can’t-miss sights.…

A place in my memory: Quebec City

My predilection for landmark photography notwithstanding, I take a fair number of “picturesque detail” shots. They rarely end up among my favorites, precisely because they tend not to clearly associate with a specific place and therefore rarely support a specific memory. But this colorful picture taken in Quartier Petit-Champlain in…

Linz, Austria

I focused on Vienna and its Christmas markets on my recent trip to Austria, but also took day-trips to explore Graz and Semmering Railway. I also spent a day in Linz, which was probably a bit of an overkill for the overall trip. Don’t get me wrong – Linz is…

33 cents

A curious thing happened to me today: I sold my first photograph. It only brought me 33 cents, a laughable sum that I cannot even put into my pocket until I make 151 more sales of the same kind. Adobe Stock site pocketed twice as much but even if I…

Vienna

I ended my favorite sights vignette of Vienna several years ago with a promise to take hundreds of pictures on my next trip to the city. Such trip came about recently – and I fulfilled that promise to a certain degree. I now have a reasonable amount of good shots…

Madrid

You probably recall that I went to Madrid in late October for the expressed purpose of seeing a football match. Of course, I could not miss an opportunity to improve my collection of Madrid photos. So, I walked around the city and looked in to a number of major points…
