It's summer again...
It's summer again...
Here is to our day at ACBH. Kate was beyond exited and I just loved it so so much. And here is a fun fact - I've just changed the batteries in my vintage Olympus and it set the date to 1987. So here is our small time machine and little bit of time traveling, I guess.
I've made a summer playlist on Spotify for you to enjoy this Friday night. Thank you for sharing the vibe! ✨
Captured in fall these winter photographs keep encrypted crisp air, childish excitement and the love two shared.
Enjoy your day!
I feel thankful to Instagram an all around mobile photography for being able to capture those unpolished moments in-between. I cherish them so, so much and believe they are the life.
Here are 3 everyday stories in sets of 3 pictures. I like this format so chances are that I will continue that way.
Slow living in California. It just feels good.
Here are some photographs from my recent personal rolls of film. Enjoying the smoothness.

Curing my perfectionism with sharing the process.
Today's inspiration - noting special but casual moments.
While I'm packing my things to get ready to shoot Kate's making my day.
While on my journey path there always will be the outstanding things. Things of the different order of magnitude. The ones that stay in the end. Life and death, space and universe, who-we-are and why-we-came questions. And while I keep wrapping my mind around all this the miracle of life happens. Simply, ordinary, beautifully.
My incredible friend Katia and your family, congratulation on your new little one. May Max be blessed, happy and healthy new human.
I think 2/3 of our trips are impromptu. On Sunday morning I can easily jump in the car, drive hundreds miles to explore, to change the place, to discover. I just have to go places. And that was the case. I had a slight hope to spot grey whales in Point Dume this year but this treat is still left for future.
There was I guy who told me he could deal with my Mamiya and take a picture of 3 of us. Well, I guess he can.
Her daydream was about Unicorns being real. That way we can have one in the stall and she can ride one.
There were a lot of seals down there making authentic sounds.
Now is the question where to go next?
Some moments are like sparkles, some make our days, some moments give us a minute to stop and fill us with energy. And nothing can be compared with warm and joyful experience of good friends gathering.
For three years now my dear friend Alena spend her winter months here in LA, where much warmer weather comparing to other parts of our planet could be still pretty chilly.
Putting aside our multiple projects and collaborations this year, that day was all about being relaxed and feeling recharged with Alena's special remedies. Homemade ice cream with matcha green tea served with warm fruits and dark chocolate, how does that sound for you? In those moments I think she is a little fairy who's bringing peace and warmth in my soul with her charming cooking passion.

Someday in 2014 at Joan's on 3rd.
I'm sitting in the cafeteria and watching steam passing from the coffee machine. Life is incredible invisible thing. It happens in this moment and you can barely touch it. But when we truly catch the moment the is something crisp in it.
