Code::Dive 2015

I can see many people coming here, lured by my photos from first edition of Code::Dive programming conference. I guess it's time to post a few from 2015 edition. I only took part as a photographer this time, not an organizer and it was a lot of fun for me. Also quite the physical exercise since I had to run many times two floor up - two floor down. There's a slight chance this was my last time, but who knows?

Here's a bunch of photos from the event that I like.

Bird feeder

Last winter I haven't seen any birds other than pigeons flying around the block I live in. But this year I saw some tits coming and checking us out so I decided to leave some food for them for the upcoming winter. They don't show much but sparrows are just loving it, most of the time there is one of them eating like he hadn't seen food in a month. And the winter have been very warm so far! I enjoy watching them, now I have national geographic channel inside and outside. :)

Arspach-Teplice Rocks

This autumn (yes, it's still 2015) I was for the second time in so called Rock City (polish Skalne Miasto) in Czech Republic. It was a lovely hike on a warm, mostly sunny day, ended with a fried cheese and 2 hour ride back home. I was there for the first time in 2012, but photos still wait for some form of inspiration.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

No matter if you celebrate Christmas or not, I would like to wish you all a quiet, happy time with your family or friends. Celebrate yourselves, stay positive and don't eat too much. ;) I wish for the upcoming year to be full of fun surprises, to have more things done, to do some good photos and be happy as much as possible!

I did not prepare any themed photo as many of my photographer friends did, so here's something from my other, geeky side, ASCII tree. :)

Contest result and winter holidays

So.. My last entry was about a contest which I took part in and - woohoo! - I won! This is my first ever victory in a photo contest. I don't enter them much, because those who have prestige and/or good prizes are the ones where I don't really stand a chance. And those which I stand some chance are about who-has-the-most-friends-that-can-click-like, and that is not really about the quality, composition, idea. I am not the person that would spam everyone to vote for me. So that leaves not so big amount of contests that I enter.

Long story shot - I won a 1kg bag of coffee! Big thanks to fotokursy.tv for creating this contest and to TajemniceKawy.pl for sponsoring this prize! Results are only available as a video and in Polish only - if that fits you go and check them.

On the other topic - I have some photos that wait for publication but I just can't force myself to do that. I hope that during winter break (that started today for me) I will do some catch up. I managed to add lynx photo to animal gallery that was taken earlier this year in Wrocław ZOO.
