Learn and Share –

“Learn at least one useful/interesting/awesome thing – per week – and share it.” Raine found the “learn and share” idea to be interesting and – at her suggestion – we decided to write on Tuesdays :). So, stay tuned for some constant sharing of learned things. Here is their blog (Raine,Manuel and Emeline): We’re […]

Learn and Share – Weekly Sum Up.

Well well.., the previous week has been a busy one for me.Because I had some medical issues, I couldn’t go to work; but the time was used productively to learn some new stuff about the business environment.I haven’t yet reached the point where I can easily synthesize or create my own ideas, so we’ll have […]

Closing a chapter.

As of today it’s official that I’ll give up motorcycling….for a while :). “Suzi” is up for sale and kept parked until a new owner is found.I’m not that happy with this particular decision, but I believe it’s better this way. It’s common for people to care less about the object that is being sold, […]

Sunday afternoon in Cismigiu park, with the D80 and 55-200mm lens – which I haven’t used for almost a year; too bad… it does take some really nice wildlife/macro pictures.Because of the lack of light (overcast sky), I had to make a compromise and increase the ISO to 800; so, most pictures have a noticeable […]

New aim – Learn and Share.

Learn at least one useful/interesting/awesome thing – per week – and share it. As I recently realized that days and even weeks pass by without learning any new things, without growing and improving, I decided to set this new purpose.At first, I intended to set one new discovery per day…but let’s not get ahead of […]

Macro photography – budget solutions for DSLRs.

In case you’re not considering spending at least 500 Euros for a proper macro lens, I’m going to present you with two cheap alternatives (and also the story of the latest “photo session”). Since I had to spend the Easter holidays in the rural area, with my parents, I decided to prepare myself for some […]
