I’m somewhere deep in my winter thoughts last days (or better to say – months), so I haven’t found time to post.
The pictures I’m posting here are taken in autumn.
Maybe it’s for the best, now you have opportunity to have a glimpse into the sunny and still warm autumn days.
It was Bronius’ bithday, we had to go to his place outside of the town. decided to take a long-cut, and to drive around some towns. Meeting Domas early morning in the oil station.
This is kind of unusual picture for my Pentax. This picture is twice as long as a normal one. Guys planing the trip and already siting in cafe of Kavarskas. Which was actually very interesting particular in terms of its colour. Look below.
It was pink violet… (Smena and multiple exposure)
Darius and his Coke (never without it…)
On the way we foun a manor. It was kind of surprise, we didn’t know about one in that area. And in Lithuania there’s not so many manors castles and stuff like that. We couldn’t go to see the manor (private territory, as always). But we went to watch at the servants house. It was pretty nice too. I made these two pictures with smena. Actually I’m very surprised, that smena allowed to get such detailed picture and to capture clouds and water in such a nice quality. Usually smena isn’t suitable for landscapes (If you don’t know what smena is, you are either very young or not from the former Soviet Union, maybe later I’ll tell about that camera – it’s special ). Anyway I like these two pictures.
This absolutely nice picture and the one below made Darius with smena (you know that feeling ‘I should have made that picture…’)
So we finally reached Bronius’ place. Boys were playing basketball all the weekend.
Shooting with smena has one (one of many) specific feature. That is, you never know what can come up in the right side of the picture. This camera do not have range finder and is not single-lens reflex camera, what it has is just a piece of plastic on its left upper corner. So sometimes you find smth you didn’t expect, like in this pic – curious face of Donatas.
Sla in the blue.
I’m sorry about this sequence, I really do not connect Sla with chicken. It’s purely sequence of time. One weekend we went to the place of Lukas’ great- grandmother. On the way his uncle asked to give some water to the calf. So we (four urban creatures) went to the country-side. And it is where I saw the chicken.
Lukas + calf
The village girl + chicken + Mercedes
Darius + wood
We went for a walk and found a great number of mushrooms the name of which I really don’t know in english.
The pictures below are about the doors, doubting, playing compositions doors. This is one of many projects of Julius. Marčius setting his photo camera. He wanted to film the doors, later poor camera felt right on its (camera’s nor Marčius’) face.
With my job colleagues I went to the conference in Thessaloniki. After the conference my project manager proposed to go to the cave, where 70 000 years old man was discovered (it changed the theories about evolution of man). Anyway, I’m telling this only to make sure that you could understand how serious place it supposed to be. This giraffe we saw first when we came there.
But even more cute when the giraffe was smiling hedgehog. I just couldn’t not to take a picture.
He has a cunning smile, don’t you think so?
It was snowing in Vilnius at that time, I was in Thessaloniki.Maybe that’s why outdoor cafe made an impression on me. And also, because I am romantic, empty left space seemed having some kind of strange feeling which moved me.
Some small town in Greece near the Meteora.
That’s all, don’t get cold.
