True stories – same’n’different

Nic dwa razy się nie zdarza
i nie zdarzy. Z tej przyczyny
zrodziliśmy się bez wprawy
i pomrzemy bez rutyny.

This is lovely poem by Wisława Szymborska.  There are things that seem to be constant and those that come and go in a blink of eye. Nothing happens twice. Chance comes unexpectedly. Once and never again. I felt it so deeply in my heart and soul it almost… Almost.

Just be yourself with me

It’s raining again. Summer shows colder face. Face I won’t accept. Never. 🙂 Here goes the Cure.
Considering this photocast was done more than year ago I think I have to reconsider publishing time.

Cheers

True Stories – Blowing

Many times in your startup you’ll find a challenge more challenging than it appears at first. It’s only a matter of your open mind how you handle it. Would you consider covering this candle with a selfphone laying nearby? Surely effective method. 🙂
Once again happy birthday Przemek. 🙂

Startup Weekend Trójmiasto photo coverage

Well this time was different. I was participating with one of my ideas on Startup Weekend Trojmiasto. Good side is, that we (me and team) managed to appear on stage as one of chosen teams 🙂 Bad side is that there are just a few photos. Well life is a game of choices. During the event there was not much time to talk and even less for photography. Moreover I was mentaly focused on main target and that was to produce early beta of UPromised! After 54h of constant focus and hard work I was quite exhausted. Few mentors shoots cause at that time I thought I’ll have time to talk with them. Sorry no startupers shoots, except Nina. 😉 Nevertheless I’ve managed to take some nice shoots during afterparty in Gdynia’s COCO Club & Restaurant. . For sure I’ll write about more on how is to be on the other side of lens.

Anyway here it goes, Startup Weekend Trójmiasto photo coverage. Happy viewing guys.

JimB40’s Shoots of Life – December 2011

December. Or maybe September again? Lonely butterfly did something wrong with its wing on the other side od the globe. Because of that we had autum untill end of December. Kraków again. Good food and inspiring meeting with Wacek Wantuch organized by Iza. Flying bikers in Arena Centre in Łódź. Having petrol in my blood and quite nice photos. Gathering info about studio equipment & learning how to deal with color. My monitor gets nice DIY hood. Spending a week with my kids and celebrating seventh year of my Capricorn. Last Aula. Last dinner. Last day of 2011. Christmas time with family passed somehow unnoticed.  Warsaw & Yo again. New Years Eve at crowded Castle Square. Bye, bye two-ou-one-one. I won’t miss you much ’cause there’s young and fresh two-ou-one-two knocking on my door.. Thank you for being part of my life.

JimB40’s Shoots of Life – November 2011

November. Life slows down. If one never went through November here in Poland, one doesn’t have bloody idea what I am talking about. Free falling with thinking about protection. Will the parachute open? Have I had taken parachute with me before I had to leave the plane? This year November came undercover. Pretending September. No one has believed. Even bikes were sad that their time was over. Time to fight! European version of happiness prescription. Caprese instead of Prozac and cheesecake with chocolate instead of Viagra. Feeling like housewife with all those duties. Android starts to piss me off. Is this autumn or shitty technology? Next small step in mini-studio direction means measuring my living room. Product means constant question. Would I like to receive something like this? Following Halloween Aula barcamp was mainly about dead man. Famous but dead anyway. Having fun with bride & groom. Kuba is chasing Ania. Hopefully for the rest of his life. He promised.  Reading best polish prose. Michał doesn’t seem to know how to make caprese. Nevertheless he knows perfectly what is November like. No doubts. Golden fish and one day. I have three wishes: one day with more light, one day with more light and one day with more light. That all folks.

If you were part of my life thank you for letting me survive.

JimB40’s Shoots of Life – October 2011

October was hot. Summer was sorry for so many tears and was trying to say sorry. Lovely bike trip to Konstancin. Learning how to cook bitki. More equipment to my home studio and fasionable disk for daily backup. Playing guitar when possible makes me easy-going. Darek Jankowski was damn right. Anastazja went home so I did a wedding with Grzegorz as second. Out of sudden with one small signature I became a god father of this marriage. Love those events. The only constant thing is change. Freeman’s „Photographers mind”. Slowly introducing speedlights in my photo mind. Next wedding. Friends. Again lot of positive people. I almost got killed by truck going back at 4am in total mist. Weather spoils. Cross from Bieszczady for my mum. This project lasted one year. One has to be stubborn. Joy of creation again. Marti Studio takes place in my mind.  Workin on quality of photo products & reading a lot about it. The last day of October was warm and pleasant. Thank you for being part of my life.

True Stories – Vain Expectations?

Była także inna chwila, której nie zapomnę,
Był raz wieczór rozmarzony i nadzieje płonne

Sorry for no translation. In the meantime picture has to speak for itself, while I look for the proper translation of Marek Grechuta song. He was one of the most influential polish artists.

Photo used in this TS have a file name IMG_9666.JPG and this was not planned.
It’s the publish time what WAS planned. 6:60 plus 6 🙂
