Truly witnessed a bit of history in the making last night, as our own #1 in tennis - Grigor Dimitrov - went from being the first Bulgarian at the ATP World Tour and ended the week as the first player to win on his debut in 19 years.
Perfect week. Read More
Americans have their 4th of July, while in the UK there's Remembrance day - otherwise known as Guy Fawkes or Bonfire Night. In other words - excuses for setting off a dazzling spectacle of fire, sound and fury. Read More
Ah, Amsterdam, how brief our encounter was, yet how much you intrigued me. Read More
I escaped the gloom. Ran away from my dear London to beautiful, sunny Barcelona for 5 awesome days. The occasion? There was none. We were taking advantage of the fact that my little brother had a few days off from school, so the idea of going to Barcelona that we've been pondering for ages was finally materializing. Read More
There's been a lot more going on in my world and, among other things, I've been shooting a lot more too. So let's catch up a bit - last week, I had the opportunity to attend a London performance of "Sex, Drugs & Rock'n'Roll" for the show's 25th anniversary. Read More
For this photo-story, I'll let the images speak for themselves.
Ah, sunny London. Now that's a sight to be seen.
I went to Camden Town with my friend Danny, with the sole purpose of wondering around, without a set destination, and try to find interesting things to photograph along the way. Read More
I know you all are screeming "LET US SEE THE HORSES, YOU IDIOT" after yesterday's post, which I meant to use as a clearer introduction to the village to give you some context. But without further ado.... well, actually you already saw them before you started reading this... Read More
My grand introduction failed....
Anyway, moving on...
We've already established that I like to play around and try different things each time I go out to take pictures, and at my seaside village in Bulgaria - Emona, there's not shortage of things to photograph. This particular time, I went out with a completely different intent than this photo - and that was to try to take pictures of the (semi-)wild horses that live there, but more in tomorrow's story!

Since I've started the whole birds and observation of details thing, I want to continue that by sharing one of my grandmother's favourite photos. It was taken in one of the trees in our yard in the village Emona, which I mentioned when I talked about the concert photo a few days ago. Read More
Yesterday, when I was digging up the original editied file for the photo of the day, a little detail in my selection stood out and made me rather happy with myself. The photo which you see above was literally the next shot in what I considered the best of the best images from that London vacation. Read More
I would dare to say this is one my favourite and "best" pictures I've ever taken.
Today's Photo of the Day shouldn't be new to most of you. I've even sold prints of this one. But I want to counter myself and my post from yesterday and show you a typical touristy picture, which is more interesting than average exactly because of the fisheye. Read More
Today, I want to revisit the fisheye-lens question by sharing an image, where I think it works perfectly. Read More
We have always been a dog fmily, and honestly, as far as I can remember we've always had at least a couple of dogs, either with my grandparents or with my family. We got our beloved white fool of a Samoyed not even a year after we moved into our house. This Polaroid picture was taken over 7 and half years later, and two and a half years after we found Krista as a small puppy crying on our doorstep on Easter day. Read More
Exactly a year ago today, I was really itching to try out some crazy compositing just for the fun of it and to explore more of Photoshop's possibilities. Read More
So, yesterday, I posed a question if anyone could guess **HOW** this photo was taken, and I've asked people in the past about it, and they always seem intrigued by the deceptive simplicity of the whole setup. There are, however, several little tricks in there that make a world of difference in the final image, so I'm gonna go over those in today's post, hoping to inspire maybe 1 or 2 of you to experiment with something and just see what happens. Read More
Since I've started discussing my quest for experimentation in photography (among other things), I want to share a very simple, yet powerful technique I tried to pull off in the image bellow. Read More
It was a cold and misty November afternoon, nowhere nearly as cold as it is at the moment in Bulgaria, but then, I was at Chigwell school. Read More
Today, I want to share probably my favourite fireworks shot, but it's one that a lot of people criticize me for. Because, as you must have already noticed, it's in black and white. Read More
Wow, he's getting old now... Read More
In a few days, I'm going back to London.
This collage shows a project I really want to continue in 2017, but it started when I first visited London for a family vacation back in April 2011. Read More
