About me


today is a good day to write about myself. actually, each day is different to write about myself. everything changes, yet remains the same. I have same reasons and urges, but now they are a little clearer, deeper. the motivation is also here, it’s light. passion is always present. intensifying.  moving.

it is a beautiful thing.

and I tend to be beautiful human. sometimes I succeed, sometimes I don’t. but, I keep trying. photography helps me a lot, it seems like it gradually and thoroughly reveals me.

and then we both enjoy it. the little spark which appears every time I am ready to accept the gift.

thank me for myself in you through us 🙂
