  1. Waiting for Dawn - first vision…

    24 Jan 2021

    Dusk is falling. The streets are getting empty. Only a few figures slip through the concrete maze. In the distance, you can hear the last murmurs of the day. The city is falling asleep… *** ‘Waiting for Dawn’ is a night walk through non-existent housing estates. The walk through the…


  2. Art Deco church in Drumcondra

    27 Oct 2020

    Griffith Avenue is one of the most beautiful streets in central Dublin. The majestic trees along the road on both sides give this place an incredible charm Green in the summer, exploding with colours in Autumn. Among these trees and the surrounding low-rise buildings, there is a magnificent architectural object…


  3. Intrepid 4x5 Mk 4 camera - new adventure

    16 Oct 2020

    It took me only two years to get back to large format photography. And I mean here - camera with the lens as I am continually using my incredible pinhole cameras with perspective correction (4x5 and 8x10).  After selling Sinar F2 (in 2018), which I had been using for many…


  4. Liam McCormick and sacral architecture

    23 Aug 2020

    I just spent a week in Donegal, the most incredible part of Ireland. Every year I try to spend some time travelling around the country and I am always amazed at how beautiful it is. The landscape here is unreal.  But Ireland is not just a landscape. It’s also beautiful…


  5. Large format 8x10

    18 Jul 2020

    Writing of this post will be stretched in time - a form of a short diary.  I am starting on Saturday morning on the 11th of July, and I can’t wait until the next week to tell you what I feel today… And I am amazed. My visual perception of…


  6. Hendrons

    05 Jun 2020

    Walking down Dominick Street Upper, at some point, a fascinating and unique structure emerges. A four-story, white rendered block with horizontal glazing, flat roof and tall lift tower. It’s Hendrons former Showroom. Then, along the Palmerston Place stretches the further part, workshops © Artur Sikora Hendrons Brothers, founded in 1911,…


  7. New toy…

    24 Apr 2020

    A few weeks ago I got a bag full of 35 mm films from a friend of mine (thank you, Aga). I knew I would have to go back to this format. It was only a matter of time. The only question is, for how long this time?  In my…


  8. My cameras - Part III - 4x5

    28 Mar 2020

    We are getting back to cameras as promised in my unusual Wednesday post. Browsing through the archives can be quite challenging, mainly when covering such an extended time frame. It can also be refreshing. I find strange pleasure looking at old photographs. Even my own ;) Memories and some forgotten…


  9. In the meantime…

    25 Mar 2020

    It is the third time I have to change the topic of the blog post suddenly within the last couple of months. It also probably not the last one.  This blog is dedicated to everything related to photography (and architecture) and will remain as such. From time to time, however,…


  10. In Memoriam…

    15 Feb 2020

    This text was supposed to be about something else. Due to unexpected circumstances, however, I decided to change the subject.  Paul Koralek, cofounder of renowned architectural practice Ahrends, Burton, Koralek Architects (ABK Architects), passed away a few days ago.  I had a chance to meet him while working at ABK…


  11. Short break

    07 Feb 2020

    In a post last week I wrote about my fast changing neighbourhood. However, this does not apply to the entire area. There are still places here that are slightly different.  Like this across the street. Several lanes with picturesque red brick terrace houses built in 1890–1910 for dockers.  Many of…


  12. Towers (return)

    31 Jan 2020

    In below post I am presenting more visual content based on material recorded a few years ago, photographs I already published on my social media channels but not in the form of the entirety My neighbourhood, Docklands area is constantly changing. It’s like a pot of bubbling boiling soup. Now…


  13. Lensless photography

    25 Jan 2020

    A lens-camera is a great, usually very precise creative tool that helps you express yourself visually. Pinhole camera however it’s a completely different story.  Here you have to rely on your intuition. Except for obvious pre-visualisation in case of emulsion-based materials and analogue photography, you have to 'guess' the scene/frame…


  14. My Architectural Photography…

    10 Jan 2020

    As I promised in the previous post, I will do my best to fill this space with text frequently. From now on you can expect new articles every weekend. To do that this blog will turn into a form of a diary from time to time. I will continue to…


  15. Changes…

    05 Jan 2020

    After a few weeks of thinking about it, I decided to continue blogging within my website instead of blogger.com I was using for the last 10 years now.  No, I am not deleting my old blog. It is still there and will remain but time has come for some changes.…
