My fine art photo is taking place in Sydney

Before about two months ago, I received an email from Karen from Sydney, she chose one of my Black and White photos. Today I received from her e-mail with photo how the print looks like in her living room.

Whenever someone orders a picture from me, I ask if he/she would be kind enough to send me a picture then how the picture looks framed on the wall. Not always the client finds the time to send me a picture, but if so, it is always worth it. I am always delighted.

Karen has excellent taste, I think my picture fits nicely into the interior of her nice living room.

Thanks Karen

Beautiful architecture of Vienna University of Economics and Business

As you probably know, I like to shoot architecture very much. To this place I was first brought by my friend Dragan, for what I am very grateful to him. It is really a genuine masterpiece of architecture.

Since my first visit to the Vienna Universiy of Economics and Business I come back here almost regularly when I visit Vienna. When I am already losing my strength to find and explore new and new locations, this is exactly where I find my refuge. It is a complex of buildings of so magnificent architecture that from each of the visits I always take home at least one slick photo.

My photo from Bali printed on a large canvas is hanging in Australia

Big print on canvas-2

It is nice to see again that one of my photos is hanging in someone’s home. This time Dana from Australia chose a photo from Bali. The photo was taken at Unda River. Many children especially on Sundays when children have no school play here (yes, children in Bali go to school on Saturdays too). They use to splash water at each other and jump downwards to the river. These are perfect moments when the photographer has many options to make a good picture.
