Slovak photographer Martin Sojka travels all over the world and takes amazing photos. I like the dream like quality of his work. He brings out the beauty of a place with the light he captures. Check out some of his beautiful and inspiring landscape photographs.

Friday’s Pictures is a recurring topic that features excellent photos by several photo artists and it revolves around a theme each week.
This week the theme is Breaking the Rule of Thirds.
The rule of thirds is one of the first things you became aware as a young photographer or visual artist. It’s a rule that helps you in the composition of your pictures to make them instantly more pleasing to the eye by arranging the elements of the picture along some of the four lines, instead of just centering the subject.
This picture ilustrates this concept very well:

You can read more about it in this Wikipedia article.
These next photos, although not abandoning altogether the concept of rule of thirds, are great examples of beautiful pictures that somewhat break the rule. Enjoy!

One of the great things of living in Paris is the fact that you feel that Europe is your playground. Because Paris is in the middle of the EU you can just drive to very cool places in three or four hours.
This time we went for a little drive to meet our friend I. in Belgium. Although it was raining relentlessly and the sky was cloudy and I had to cover my camera because of the humidity it was a great weekend and I got some cool photos. Not as much as I hoped for but still, great weekend.
The first two photos were taken in Gent, which is in the Flemish part of Belgium. To the untrained eye it almost looks like the Netherlands.
The next day I snapped some photos in Mons which is in the Walloon part of Belgium.
Belgium is a weird and fascinating place, I tell you what!
** I’m having a hard time with the auto focus on my camera. I need to do some tests to see if the problem is in the camera or in the old 50mm lens. Rats! I really like my old lens… I hope I can fix this soon. **
