I am a passionate, self-taught photographer based in US. In future I don,t know where I will be. Maybe back in Europe. My interest in photography started to grow approximately ten years ago and I started to see with an entirely new perspective and with lots of enthusiasm. I really enjoy taking photos of macro, birds, wildlife and landscape. Photography to me not just a hobby, it’s a real addiction. Everywhere I go I do it with camera. I have sold a lot of calendars with my photos.
I hope you enjoy my photographs as much I did taking them. Happy bubbling!

To find the universal elements enough;
to find the air and the water exhilarating;
to be refreshed by a morning walk
or an evening saunter;
to be thrilled by the stars at night;
to be elated over a bird’s nest
or a wildflower in spring
- these are some of the rewards of the simple life.

When I was very young and the urge to be someplace else was on me, I was assured by mature people that maturity would cure this itch. When years described me as mature, the remedy prescribed was middle age. In middle age I was assured that greater age would calm my fever and now that I am even older maybe senility will do the job.
Nothing has worked. Four hoarse blasts of a ship’s whistle still raise the hair on my neck and set my feet to tapping. The sound of a jet, an engine warming up, even the clopping of shod hooves on pavement brings on the ancient shudder, the dry mouth and vacant eye, the hot palms and the churn of stomach high up under the rib cage . . .
I fear the disease is incurable.
—John Steinbeck in Travels with Charley

I love these quotes:
Photograph: a picture painted by the sun without instruction in art. ~Ambrose Bierce
You don’t take a photograph. You ask, quietly, to borrow it. ~Author Unknown
Sometimes I do get to places just when God’s ready to have somebody click the shutter. ~Ansel Adams
My hobby is also poetry. I wasn’t interested in poetry until I was older. Then I happened to read a poem by the Estonian poet Alliksaar. I wept, and started my long journey in the promised land of poetry. I consider the world of poems is a golden world, a model, and metaphor. My poems makes references to our world through analogy, and like all analogies it invites being explored “as if” it were real. My writings permit an escape from my confusions and difficulties into a world that seems to foster my heart’s desire. To create a poem, this is for me the expression of feelings must be involved as well the shaping power of imagination. To create I must have an inspiration, and to get inspiration I look toward nature.
I think the power of poetry is to refine and mature our awareness, to give us a language in which to frame experience we might otherwise be unable to articulate and therefor to reflect upon.
