From the very first time I took a camera in my hands, I wanted to share my photography with everyone.

Few years ago I started making photo calendars as a special Christmas, Hannukah or New Year’s gift to friends and family, starting with 12 of the  best Flower pictures I took that year. It was a great success and year by year I enjoyed producing artistic photo calendars for the Holiday Season.

Last year I decided to offer my calendars for sale to my clients. It is a great opportunity to buy a  photo art calendar from an original artist – me.

Even though calendar can be ordered at any time – I usually publish all the available options and themes just before end of the year.

For year 2013 –  I will be selling these three items:

  • 12 month 8×11 wall calendar featuring, once again, flowers – $25
  • 12 month 5×11 desk calendar, a celebration of yellow around us – $20
  • 16×20 calendar poster, a beautiful landscape shot of Hawaiian North Shore beach – $22

I also sell individual prints of any of my photographs used in these calendars, please contact me for options and pricing.

A “Confused” Tree

Have you ever seen trees blooming in August, for a second time in a year?

Well, I did. It happened this summer (2012) at Shaw Natural Reserve in Gray Summit, MO. After a very hot and dry summer, the Japanese Magnolias (M. Soulangeana) started to bloom again, when rain and cooler air finally arrived in August.

Whatever the reason, we enjoyed the little unexpected corner of Spring in August and as always, I tried to capture the magical atmosphere of this nature’s surprise.

Missouri Botanical Garden – Lantern Festival 2012

This year Missouri Botanical Garden brought a great exhibition to St. Louis – Lantern Festival: Art by Day, Magic by Night.

For me, the most impressive was the endless creativity, vision and skills of artisans who build the exhibits.
In my pictures I’ve tried to capture the festival atmosphere of the event  and create a tribute to ingenuity and complexity of man’s mind and workmanship.

“Afikoman Hunt” – Modern Spin

Have your kids ever asked you why there is no “Matzah hunt” (like Eggs hunt) on Passover?

This Passover a good friend of mine – Irina – had a brilliant idea to add a modern spin on traditional afikoman “hide&seek” and turn it into an “Afikoman Hunt” by hiding pieces of Matzah outside of the house. Kids were given baskets and loose instructions where to look and how many pieces are out there.

As all Afikoman’s were found, kids got their prizes – bag of toys representing Ten Egyptian Plagues.

Kids had lots of FUN and I of course couldn’t miss an opportunity to sneak some snapshots 🙂

Amazing View – Right Here, Right Now

I truly believe that to see an amazing view – there is no need to travel far far away… Just look outside of your window and you may find it in your backyard…

This Sunday morning I saw the amazing rainbow outside of my house. It was breathtaking.

The only downside (according to my 5 years old daughter) is that since it was morning AFTER the St. Patrick’s day – there was no leprechaun nor pot of gold was waiting for us at either end of the rainbow.
