Naples

May 29, 2024

Shock. Disillusionment and uncertainty. Those were the feelings that overtook us when we arrived in Naples and went for a walk around the city. We even made it to the famous Quartieri Spagnoli – the Spanish Quarter, where there are narrow alleys, tall buildings, laundry hanging between them, and...

Mount Vesuvius

Mount Vesuvius

May 24, 2024

It’s 11:00 AM and I am waiting at the foot of Mount Vesuvius, shivering from the cold and checking my phone every few minutes. My company consists of a shabby souvenir shop and a few black vendors selling everything from clothing to statues made of black lava stone. Around...

Madrid

April 11, 2024

Back in September 2008, I was strolling around the streets of Madrid as an ordinary tourist. This little girl caught my eye immediately. I quickly grabbed the camera and pressed the shutter, creating the motion effect. I still like the photo a lot. And I wonder where she is...

Chat with Nemo

March 1, 2024

We went on vacation to Egypt mainly because of the coral reefs. One was right by our hotel complex. And it was an amazing experience, seeing all those beautiful fish live and having a chat with Nemo himself… After some initial hesitation, even my mom joined me in snorkeling....

In front of the supermarket

Brtnice

February 6, 2024

Outside, the sun is just rising, and I’m already sitting in the car heading towards Brtnice. The fields outside the window are passing by, and I’m contemplating whether the early wake-up will be worth it. Whether I’ll be able to take good shots. We park at the square, I...

The landscape of Vysočina

February 6, 2024

Fields, trees, forests, sky, sun, occasionally a deer, bird, or insect… And me with a camera around my neck, walking through the countryside, fully immersed in it. I search for the most beautiful shot, waiting for the sun to shine and illuminate the ruins of Rokštejn Castle. When all...

Symi

February 6, 2024

When our boat approached the shores of the small Greek island of Symi, my mom and I weren’t entirely sure what to expect. We were anticipating the picturesque town full of photogenic white houses, but we didn’t know it would captivate us so much. An hour to explore was...

Rhodes

February 5, 2024

At 7:00 in the morning, the alarm clock jolts me out of sleep. I slowly transition back to reality: I’m lying in the bed of a hotel room, with my mom already getting up next to me. We agreed to wake up early in the morning and go out...

Turkey

February 5, 2024

My mom and I went to Turkey in July 2005 on a vacation with a travel agency. What stands out the most in my memory is the constant attention from all the men around us as we walked by. It was probably a form of flattery, but we didn’t...
