There is no point in starting anything new, because others are much further from you, have more experience, know more, etc. Well, I also consider it nonsense.

Do you know the saying that “the flower does not care for the other one, it just blossoms”? We have summer, so with the naked eye you can see that a lot of flowers look better than one, right?

How many times have you heard that you have to be able to take criticism? I think that this cliché needs to be modified into: you should be able to take criticism selectively.

The world is big

and there is enough space for everyone. Your life is not a race, you can take a step in the right direction every day.

Once I got great advice: If you want to be a good photographer, do not compete with your colleagues, just take pictures. And it works! The best photo lesson I’ve had so far!

You need to be resistant to opinions of people who lack knowledge or are simply inherently nasty and snappy. It is often the case that once I put all my skills and knowledge into taking a picture, I know – just a split of a second after that – what I would do better. And no one has to voluntarily point out mistakes to me. Unless I ask for advice myself.


selectivity is not so easy.
An annoying remark can affect the artist and deprive him / her of inspiration for a long time. How to get immunized? You just have to practice and ask yourself each time whether the opinion of the person is important to you.

This is not about arrogance but about common sense. I also do not speak uninvited about the work of others and it’s much better!

Squeaky Hinges

When I’m in Poland, I take a concept of “sitting at home” very seriously. And that means writing, reading, watching TV series, sitting by the fireplace and petting my cat, or a ladies-night with neighbours.

Spooky Nocturne at Tram Museum

It was well after dark and I have already started to get into Halloween spirit. Being in a spooky mood, I have visited the Tram Museum.

No time for hair twirling?

Have you got always more to do, never enough time to do it, and no time to calm down?
If you do just one thing, spend just 15 minutes more, you will be finally able to relax, right?
