Ostromecko

Since we got pregnant and my wife is writing paper for her master’s degree there aren’t many opportunities to just take a walk with a camera. It wasn’t the case last Sunday, when we went to Ostromecko Palace to take a walk along the gardens. Sun was shining, flowers blooming, there even was a concert […]

Tournament in Wenecja

We took some time off during long, may weekend to visit Żnin/Wenecja area again – there was early to late medieval tournament going on with some friends participating. So, despite there is gazillion of knights on this website, of course I took some more pictures of them fighting. Another thing that was great was food […]

Ethnoshoot

Girls posing in traditional polish folk outfits in scenery of The Ethnographic Museum in Toruń, Poland. It was all Kamila’s idea and I’m particularly happy about this one. The models were stunning and weather great, despite it all happened around noon and I haven’t worked with two models at the same time before. Girls however were […]

XVII Archaeological Festival in Biskupin – “Greece – the dawn of Europe”

We came to Biskupin again to do some usual horse molesting during annual Archaeological Festival in Biskupin. Those horses are bred in a way to recreate how it was done in the past, regardless, Kamila seems to love them as you can clearly see on this picture. When it comes to The Festival, this year it […]

Steam Memories

Steam Memories was a photo day in steampunk and neovictorian theme held in Warsaw, Poland. Thanks to courtesy of Railway Museum we had an opportunity to take some pictures among retro steam engines and rusted railway carts. Personally I’m new to events such as these, but I start to appreciate them. So many wonderful models […]

Radzyń Chełmiński

Ruins of a medieval Ordensburg castle built by the Teutonic Knights back in 1234. The weather front was passing by, thunderstorm was in the air with sun still shining through the clouds giving some interesting colors to the pictures. Place: Radzyń Chełmiński, Poland [mudslide:picasa,0,b.kielczewski,5645912541251133473]

Biedrusko

Abandoned army casino in Biedrusko was a place of thrilling events of the past. Like in 1921, when the whole division got drunk, they rode on horeses inside, danced, sang and at the end they fired cannon just outside so all the windows went FUBAR in the blast. Now… now it’s a different story. Place: […]

Karpacz

We did one day trip to Karpacz on our way home just to climb all the way up to Vang stave church and take this picture in the local cementary. Standing Kamila between the tombstones makes it so much gothic that I’m surprised the sun didn’t went down and all the bats didn’t awake to […]

Lubawka

Climbing so called 701 m. high Holy Mountain in Lubawka one can find many small chapels and sculptures there. Now they are mostly devastated reminder of the place’s rich religious past, where pilgrims could walk the Stations of the Cross all way up to the top. Of course we took the oportunity to take some […]

The Walk – Lady with a Parasol

Saying the Monet’s painting was my inspiration for taking this one would be too much. However the model was loosely inspired by Prus novels when choosing her clothes and posing. Lady walks, reads and enjoys the park – something we can rarely afford these days working in a corporate world. Model: Kamila Ulman Place: Toruń, […]

Medieval May Fest

Weather sucked, but the season for medieval fests has begun anyways. Toruń is medieval city after all, hence many such events throughout the year. Now, some might say there are different  brotherhoods, and some are better than the others, and whatever, I really don’t care, like really-really. Apart from meeting friends it’s a great opportunity […]

Angels

Second oldest cementery in Toruń still in exstence today holds some interesting grave sculptures. Angels created throughout the 20th century are dominating the graves. Maybe most are esthetically unappealing and came from few local craftsmen, yet they are interesting and sometimes touched by the time in hilarious way. Among them is this 2010 Winnie-the-Pooh gravestone […]
