Here are some photographs from my journeys to various destinations.
In my childhood, the annual voyage "to the sea" was the main event of the holiday time. One travelled with lots of luggage and parents who didn't have much holiday time nor money and sometimes didn't feel at all like starting an adventure called journey. They did it every year anyway, "for the boys", and each time were exceptionally proud afterwards of their own martyrdom.
My father, a passionate amateur photographer, made wonderful pictures of, it seemed, every so unimportant and boring thing. Those pictures still retain that nostalgic breath of the summer in their blue and green tones.
've been trying to save my
impressions in images and show them to those who stayed at home. That's why this here.
