Looking back at 2019: Warsaw

A small set of photos from a visit to my home city of Warsaw in January. I bought a Fuji X100F specifically for that trip (and as an everyday carry camera) and now I honestly don’t know how I lived without it. There are a billion detailed reviews of this camera on the internet so you can look it up if you’re curious. I can just say that for me it lives up to the hype. Although you can get amazing images from smartphones these days, I still like the idea of having a “real” camera on me, mainly because I am yet to see a smartphone that holds up to the winter cold in Northern Canada, and I hate dealing with touch screens in below zero temperatures. 

Ryszard Barylinski is a third-generation artisan brush maker. The brush shop on Poznanska street has been a fixture in Warsaw landscape since early 1950s. I dropped by there to pick up a couple of shoe polishing brushes. I asked if I could take a few photos. We ended up talking about cameras, brushes, and the history of the family brush shop, established by Ryszard’s grandfather.  


That awkward first post.

Hello world, this is my first blog post. I decided to start a photography blog to have a feed with my photography exploits that is independent of social media.  So here we are. If you are looking for a blog that will ruminate over how it’s cold in the Arctic and everything is expensive, you are in the wrong place (but if you have questions about the North feel free to drop me a line). Enjoy!
