You probably already know my passion for motorcycles. This post isn’t one of those posts that tells you how cool and fancy shmancy riding a bike is – you know – the “wild and free” kinda stuff. Although, Marija is smiling in the second photo 🤷🏻♂️.Read More
It’s strange how sometimes you know a song for at least few years and then one day you realise it’s about you. It happened to me with Thom Yorke’s Hearing damage song.Show Photos
One came from nature. One cannot be happy and free between artificial nature objects. Eventually, one has to go back to the roots. We need to regain the feeling of being a part of the nature not apart from it.
Baking pancakes, brewing mocha is what Saturday’s morning is all about. Oh and the sun shines through the window! You forget all your worries on mornings like this.

Some shots I took while visiting Jerusalem. I really like the Kentmere films and together with the Pentax Pino camera it makes a perfect travel kit!Read More

Here’s a few shots from my expired Ilford FP4+ 125 film used with Zenza Bronica S2. These pictures were taken this summer and came out waaaay better than expected. I really love the grainy look that expired film gives. Hope you do too!

And here’s the camera used for these shots. It’s a Japanese made SLR camera from the 1960’s. You can hear it from a mile when it fires!
Sometimes the best photos turn out to be the ones that were taken instantly without giving it another shot. It is even kinda ironic that the one of the best photo of me and Maria together is the one that we didn’t even know if the film was in the camera. So here are some shots / selfies taken with Polaroid 600.
There are people which doesn’t get too attached to their home. They like to go out all the time and just need a place to sleep. Another type of people is those to whom home is very important. Me and Maria are these kind of people. As much as we love to go out, travel, etc. We really love spending time at home – ours or one of our parents.Read More

He was a boy, she was a girl
Can I make it any more obvious?
He's just a boy and I'm just a girl
Can I make it any more obvious?
We are in love, haven't you heard
How we rock each other's world?

I like following Maria. I like taking pictures of her. Maria likes all kinds of plants. I like taking pictures of her watching blossoming plants.
I think Maria looks nice between plants. She talks to them.
I like to follow Maria in trams and trains. She wanders through the window into the nature and people.
I also have to follow her instructions. Even though at that time I might not look like I am enjoying that, but – I like following her. She looks happy while taking photos of me.
I’ve been thinking about writing a story post for a while now. Didn’t feel like doing it until now, though. But recently I took a good series of motorcycle photos and thought that I want to tell you more about how motorcycles make me feel.
My relationship with motorcycles started a long time. When I was a kid my parents had an old Iž Planeta 5 motorcycle. My dad would take me together when going somewhere with it. I remember how I loved feeling the wind going through my hair. Later, when I was around 12 years old I got my first bike – Riga moped. It had pedals and a small two-stroke engine. I remember how I used to push that bike for it to start. When I had it I understood that I can tinker it a bit and it would run better and faster. Guess that’s the time I started to work on machines.
It did not disappear
The love for motorcycles didn’t go anywhere. From those days I knew that I would always ride a bike. It makes me feel confident. As a matter of fact – just yesterday I had my driving exam and passed it! ? Now I can ride whatever motorcycle I want; no more restrictions! ?
Owning a motorcycle
There is something special about owning and riding a motorcycle. One thing is that you have to work on your motorcycle. You have to take care of it if you want it to be trustworthy. It’s like having a real relatioship – you have to put effort and show respect if you want to receive the same. It might look like your motorcycle should be the one serving you. And that is true. You should not be your motorcycle’s slave. But don’t expect your motorcycle to do all the work!
Riding a motorcycle
Another thing about motorcycles that drives me is when you ride your motorcycle. IT JUST FEELS DAMN GOOD! It makes me feel calm and restores confidence. I feel that I can achieve anything I want when I ride my motorcycle. And the community of motorcycle drivers – you feel as a part of people who likes the feel of freedom; people who is open-minded; people who loves motorcycles. You even greet other motorcyclists when you meet them on road! ?
I guess that’s it for now. Maybe I inspired you a bit to get yourself a motorcycle and join this journey. If not – at least I hope you liked the photos! Have a good one!
