    Curious

    He was curious from the the moment he saw my rig. He never smiled and stayed composed as he would know was going on, maybe becasue he woke up 5 minutes before. I had to be quick, as he definitely was hungry and once in a while his curiosity was interrupted by a short shout to his mother. I figured it was cry for food.

    Sad

    I did not know what to expect while travelling to Asia, in terms of photographing people there. I challenged myself on this trip to spend more time making portraits. Surprisingly, it was easier than i thought and believe it or not, it was due to a fact, that I photographed with my iPhone. Why woudl you say? Well, in Asia everyone has a smartphone and fact that you are photographing somebody or something is pretty ususal. On top of that, people in Asia love to be photographed and they will always pose for a photo with a big smile - in most cases.
    I noticed this girls as soon as we arrived to school and I knew that she will be a perfect subject to photograph. Do not worry, we made her smile at the end and she was running around happy. I do not know what was bothering her at that moment, but that moment made a shot for me.

    Surprised

    One of the activities we planned for our travels in Asia, was to do some charity work in one of the local schools. We cooked for children in a local village just outside of the the Siem Reap city in NW Cambodia.
    Kids were running around and looking what is going on. This young fella was plaing with his buddies on a slide and I cought him by surprise with a smile and a picture. He was laughing so hard and adn so was I.

    Hiding

    Yesterday I have returned from my 10 day trip to Thailand and Cambodia.

    I am still jet-lagged, but when I think of all the images and videos I created during my trip and yes, all was shot on my iPhone 7+ or filmed from DJI Mavic Air, I am super excited!
    This past 10 days I challenged myself to focus on portraits and food related photography. I am totally blown away by how much possibilies lay within this small, yet powerful device to capture amazing moments!

    I can not wait to share them with you soon.

    But for now, while I am scrolling through all the material I brought with me, I'd like to share with you a portrait of a little girl, a daughter of a restaurant owner, where we stopped after jungle hike to eat lunch. She seemed not bothered at all by the fact, that I photographed her and kept talking to her in a language that sounded completely unknown to her. Yet, she did a great job posisng :)

    Little House on Drina

    Last days of autumn and unusually warm weather, for this time of the year, gave us the opportunity to spend a weekend in Tara National Park.
    4 hours drive from Belgrade and we were once again in Serbian wilderness. Visiting this part of the country, made me anxious to see a small house on Drina river, which is shown literally in every tourist guide about Serbia.
    Wth no expectations and high hopes after hiking all day in the forestst of Tara NP, we decided to find this little gem. Got a map of the area in NP tourist office and asked where the house is located. We got the location and started heading towards the house. If you ever go there and you do not know where it is, find it on Google Maps first and either download the area or make sure you can access maps while driving. Proximity of Bosnia just across the river and really strong mobile signal, forces your phone to switch to their network and roaming charges there are absolutely horrendous!
    But if you save your map, you will be fine. Relying solely on road signs is not a good idea, as we missed it and had to do a bit of searching.
    Once you find it though, you will not regret :) Small Kafana on the river bank serves fantastic Illy coffee and brilliant local food.

    Weekend in Stara Planina

    First weekend of October, we decided to visit south eastern part of Serbia. Packed quickly and together with my boys, we were on the road to Stara Planina. 4 hours later we reached our hotel in the middle of mountains and forests. It felt as we were the only ones on the road. Literally no cars on the road, nobody.

    Image above taken from DJI Mavic Air, of this particular road. We had no idea how beautiful it is 😁
