Night in Hollywood (Florida)



WPC: Shine


I saw all of a sudden that there were sparkles on the surface of the ocean. I felt peace and excitement at the same time.

Fortunately, my tiny Canon was with me.

Nature is terrific and life is wonderful (despite some problems we all have)!


It’s all about nature


Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge: It’s All About Nature

For me nature is usually in many colors and it would be easy to show just one photo.

However, it is different in black and white. So I decided to show several photos. .

I don't like you anymore!

I don’t like you anymore!









People are strange

I am watching you!

Ways in Rego Park Center

Cee’s Which Way Photo Challenge – October 19, 2016

Rego Park Center is not far from where we live. It is several levels mall between two streets.

Costco located below the street level and you can get there only by elevator. Elevators also allow to go to any other level.

There are bridges between sides of the Center on every level.

















It is possible also to go to the street level from the level above by escalator.

Brave people (none on the picture) use stairs.





Close to my eyes and heart


The photo below shot from my window. I love the view at any weather.


The best four legs friend

I got an email from my friend. He is three years older and I trust his knowledge and life experience.

The email said that the best four legs friend is a bed.

So I decided to share my friend’s wisdom with you and started looking for a photo with a four legs bed.

In Getty Images I found even more than I expected.

Life is full of surprises!

Life and optimism


Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge: Liquid


Nature is beautiful!

This posted before the 2nd presidential debate in the USA.

It might be stormy but I don’t expect any beauty in it.

Three problems.

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: White Flowers

1. I am color-blind.

2. I missed many Cee’s challenges.

3. I don’t know names of majority of flowers.

However, I decided to take part in the old CFFC as I hope that I

do know what white is. I also hope that I am right that there is a lot of

light and dark green on the photo below.

By the way, how these white flowers are called?




Long-term nostalgia


I am 82. My childhood was very short due to the war.

That’s why it is long-term nostalgia.

Winter in Hollywood, Florida



Wordless Wednesday



3 quotes about contentment.

Health is the greatest possession. Contentment is the greatest treasure. Confidence is the greatest friend.

Lao Tzu

There is no end of craving. Hence contentment alone is the best way to happiness. Therefore, acquire contentment.

Swami Sivananda

Eventually, we reach the point where we start to realize that we are not going to find peace, contentment, happiness, strength, fearlessness – all of the things that in our heart of hearts we wish we had – outside of us..

Guy Finley

Invitation or rejection?





One bright sunny morning I saw far away three fishermen who enjoyed themselves in a very dangerous place: on the edge of the pond in the middle of the 18th tee of the Pocono Manor golf course.

Fortunately, some golf balls were flying in my direction and they were safe at that moment.

I photographed the fishermen and went away thinking about love between generations and wonders of new discoveries.

I don’t know if there are fishes in the pond but I am sure that there are hundreds of golf balls in it.




Photo Challenge: Quest

For many decades I photographed interesting places, scenes, people, etc.

Photography for me is a very important hobby, an essential part of my life.

Very often I meet somebody or something and make a shot. During processing I try  to understand better what attracted me and to express meaning of the shot..

Below is a picture of a stranger I met in the morning this summer in Pocono Manor.

What a model!

What a proud beautiful profile!

This stranger loves walking and knows that walking is very good for health.

I hope you know it too.



Summer, we loved you!



Happy Birthday!

Today I am 82.

I am grateful to God for my life (with many ups and downs), my dear wife (my love and best friend for 56 years), our children and grandchildren, our friends!

I enjoy beauty of nature, meeting people, reading, watching movies, playing chess, walking, taking pictures and many other things.

I am happy!

Life is wonderful!

Winter season

*                                                     SEASONS

The old man on the photo below enjoys looking at the Atlantic ocean, people on the beach and in the water. It is very nice to feel sun rays on your skin and warmth of the air in February.

I am close to 82 and it is possible that I am older that the man on the photo. Both our lives are in winter season. We worked many years, had our joys and sorrows. Today we enjoy every minute knowing very well that life is precious and there is happiness in every season. .
