I love photography but could never afford the schooling. So I set out to introduce it to my self as a hobby and to learn on the way. I am still learning and I might not have the perfect images or some will criticize my mistakes but that's OK with me. I just have passion to take pictures in the moment I see it as. It gives me a sort of freedom I can't find anywhere else.
I am from Prague, CZ. and I have lived in the U.S. for almost 16 years now. My second passion is to cook and turn the kitchen upside down for my husband to clean. But if there is anything more in this world that can make me happier it's him and only him. With an open and candid heart I can say this is my soul mate and I know I am the luckiest girl. Along to the side of him I have two terriers whom each own a piece of my heart. They are the reason I snore when I laugh, they are my little shadows always watching carefully if I am OK. My husband calls them my tumors and that is the severity of it, always attached to me.
Life to me is surreal because of how we have created this disillusion now through technology. I see a disconnection between us as humans and it makes me sad to know that we are slowly forgetting how to be kind or have simple manners. So in this regard I am teaching my self to go backwards and to leave behind the regular distractions like cells and Tv and to go out into the world unarmed with gadgets but instead with open eyes and a free mind to absorb.
