Do you like coffee? I do.

Ok, it’s not going to be about my love for coffee. Rather it’s going to be about how I love taking photos and posting them here, though one could disagree looking at my posting rhythm.

Anyway, let’s make it quick and simple because I don’t want to feel more awkward than I do.

The point is that as much as I would like to keep my website alive only on my own, it’s hard to find any extra finances for it when you’ve got a family with two kids. I don’t blame them for that in any way but it is what it is.

Till now I managed to keep the website alive but most of the time it was more of a life support than a full funding. Unfortunately, even this life support option is no more.

Which brings me to you, my dear followers and readers.

Some of you have already showed your support for my photography by buying my book on Blurb and I’m grateful for that. But I also understand that for some people a book is not always a suitable option, though otherwise they would gladly consider expressing their support.

Now if you ever wish to help the blog going you can do it in the form of a coffee donation. It’s way less than buying the book and I know that a small encouragement of someone’s efforts not only helps that person but gives you a warm feeling inside. Exactly like coffee.

Thank you.

While I was waiting for a bus I noticed how people scattered around the bus stop to find some shadow to hide. A couple of things I’m happy turned out as intended are this zig zaggy composition and the three poses: sitting, lying and standing.

It’s fun!

This week’s Photo Challenge is about fun, and as it turned out, finding a proper photo wasn’t an easy task at all. Maybe it’s me or maybe Moscow is not exactly a fun city, but most of my film photos (as well as digital ones) except for personal archives don’t qualify for the topic. Another criteria for choosing was “What is fun?”. I know this is the point of weekly challenges: they leave interpretation to you, and that’s why it was quite a challenge for me to pick up suitable photos. Well, this is what it’s all about, a challenge, right? And it is fun. Also:
