Apple Legend

Apple has lost a visionary and creative genius, and the world has lost an amazing being. Those of us who have been fortunate enough to know and work with Steve have lost a dear friend and an inspiring mentor. Steve leaves behind a company that only he could have built, and his spirit will forever be the foundation of Apple.

Weekend Insight

This weekend I enjoyed one more national hobby of the Netherlands – walking. Our family went on a 12-km walking tour in Stellendam – we chose the route called Kwade Hoek (Angry Corner) which didn’t seem angry at all: the weather was perfectly sunny and all the birds we met on the way were welcoming us with songs :) Continue reading

Chaos vs. Order

Bye-bye 2010! Hallo 2011!

I was in doubt whether I should write anything at the end of this year but I guess everything is worth a review. This was indeed a year of contradictions.

On the one hand, it seems to have been the most scanty year within the last decade… Even the emptiness of this blog page will confirm the same. If I look back to this year it appears to be a grey field with some flashes of great memories. It’s probably still due to the beginning of a new life and getting used to a new situation, land, people, circumstances. Maybe the change has been too striking – from “far too much” to “almost nothing”, from “non-stop activities” to “rather routine”. But I’m not complaining and I’m not disappointed about this year – every journey begins with one small step. Continue reading


Marvelous acrobatics. It’s amazing what a human being body can do!

Be Yourself


Don’t be afraid to be yourself.

Life is too short to be someone else.

Dancers Among Us

I like making pictures. I’m not a good photographer, though. Not even close. I just find the idea of saving a moment really cool. And I adore good photography and enjoy watching photos from different events and places, or pictures of animals, flowers, building, or just random photosets of yesterday. Doesn’t really matter.

I ‘m also fond of creative ideas what concerns photography. I mentioned one in my blog last year and came across another one this week thanks to numerous posts of my friends on Facebook via the new group called “Я люблю ФОТО” (I love photo) (The fact that it’s in Russian isn’t a problem – the only thing you need is to enjoy the art of photography).

The idea behind this photoset  is both simple and genius – to show everyone that there are talented people around us. The photographer Jordan Matter took pictures of professional dancers doing complicated movements in everyday situations around New York city. More information and, of course, photos can be seen here. Enjoy! :)
