Personal Cinema; Crossings

My first winter in Poznan was a lesson in perseverance and dedication for me and my daily adventures of running a coffee shop in extreme cold and using my camera in ways that it would survive often keeping it inside my jacket and bringing it out for a quick snap.

Personal Cinema; Stampede

It was early afternoon and the streets of Jezyce were very busy with cars, people, peddlers and in this area around the market, especially crazy and vibrant with activity.

ANALOG Workshop in Lisbon

Agnieszka surprised me with an Analog Worksop where we not only learn a bit about how to shoot and settings, etc, but that we would actually develop the roll of film that day and leave with the negatives!

Basking in the Sun and Eating far too many Pastel de Nata. Travels in Portugal.

As the title suggests, the days spent in Portugal were filled with amazing sunny scenery and after eating the first bite of the custardy delicious Pastel de Nata it became the immediate go-to, must have, eat as many as I can possibly get my hands on treat. And I did.
