So much has changed over the course of a year and a year ago when I began this project with my friend Maria, I certainly never expected this year to look as it does. Before “social distancing” became a new way of living, I asked Maria to join me in a project that could celebrate…Read More
Last year, I picked up a Horizont KMZ Panoramic camera and it quickly became a favorite to use but unfortunately that camera was dropped last summer and in need of repairs. I have been looking for someone who can work on the camera but often the parts to repair it are not available. This camera…Read More

Taking precaution this morning, I decided to walk to the Stare Miasto and back from Ochota (about 11 km rondtrip).
