    Back to the Future… or how I returned to film roll again.

    At one time I was glad that digital photography became available to me. I bought Nikon D3100 a budget DSLR camera in a kit with a Nikkor 28-105mm, AF lens and that was enough to create a family photo archive “for memory” and for my own development in this challenging area of creativity. Over time, automated settings became annoying. They did not give me the opportunity to express what I wanted – the way I see certain moments in life did not coincide with the resulting photo. Then I decided to find a good course in photography in order to understand the intricacies of the technical stuffing of the camera and, perhaps, to…

    A trip to Vytegra

    A trip to Vytegra was one of the most interesting trips we’ve had. On the way to Vytegra we passed the forest. It is actually true that the whole way was through the forest. In the middle of the road we turned into the woods to take a break. It was a lovely sandy road among pines. This is an old lingonberry from the last season. Here are the flowers of lingonberry. This is a huge pine! Then we came to Vytegra. The most interesting place there is the museum of a submarine B-440. The museum was nicely organized. Getting the orders! 🙂 Kingston – this is kingston valve that fitted…
