Going back to 1336 in Cesky Krumlov, in the Czech Republic, the Eggenberg brewery began to brew beers, and their popularity and presence there today is even stronger. This old gent sat outside a small pub that sold Eggenberg beer, perhaps relaxing before his first glass of the day

Just a retired old guy who loves looking for an eclectic mix of subjects to photograph, from people, to places, to concepts, and enjoys all aspects of the hunt, the find, and the shot, plus dabbling in the post production.
