Is there a way to bring joy to people? Not really. Still, sometimes, one can do little things, that make the world a bit more colorful even if just for a second. Mateusz goes to downtown Bergen whenever he can and the pedestrian zone turns into one big smile, with all heads turned towards the giant soap bubbles. I will be uploading a gallery with more picture in a few weeks. For now this one shows you the magic. Enjoy.
These pictures are a bit older. Pride 2016. It was a few days after I got my new camera. I took it to shoot at the parade. What better way to test drive a new camera, than at a colorful parade! One of the most interesting things that happened to me was: people posing for me. Holding a big camera in your hand, has this effect on people. I was taken by surprise so much, I missed many great shots, just because the subjects came to close to me! Enjoy.
Another picture I took recently, while knowing it's "unnecessary". It's a butterfly. I really like the green and how the only thing you can see from the butterfly is it's silhouette and a bit of the orange fuzz on its back.
It's the sound of the coffee machine brewing one little cup of coffee. It's the smell of coffee. It's me standing at the step of my uncle's tiny kitchen in Cairo, waiting patiently for my delicious cup of coffee.
Every time I go to the beach there is something interesting happening. This time there were these two beautiful, complicated kites flying over our heads. I started taking pictures like a maniac.

If you are looking to know more about photography. How a camera works, what the optics of a camera are and what's happening inside of it while you are taking pictures, I can highly recommend this series of lectures by Mark Levoy. Follow this link for his YouTube channel and the lectures. Enjoy!
It's clear to me, that the world has taken so many pictures of roses, it doesn't want to see or need to see more. I realize that, and being full aware of that I still would like to share those pictures with you of these dreamy roses. Can a photograph still be nothing but aesthetically pleasing? Do we have enough pictures, that have nice colors and a nice composition? I don't know the answer to any of these questions. I am sharing them, because they popped in my head while tak
In 1997 I traveled outside of Egypt for the first time. I went to Milano, Italy for a music competition. With me I took a FujiFilm film camera. It remember it was red and when the film was finished, it used to automatically "roll the film back". I remember back then it was an amazing invention. Not having to spin this annoying handle. This is all I remember, nothing more. I remember I took pictures of the buildings and my teacher said I had "the eye". I never really paid atte
