Welcome to my Seeking Beauty in Ordinary photography blog. I am Poland based fine art photographer, graphic designer & web designer. For almost 20 years, I used to work as an Art and English teacher at all school levels. As a designer working on commission, the needs and tastes of my clients are priority. While photography is my way of self-expression, my true love and passion. I took it up in 2009 and each day I’ve been learning something new about photography, technique, gear, etc. Looking at the world through the lens made me see everything in a sharper way, more consciously. I have learnt to notice beauty in things commonly perceived as ugly, ordinary as well as I have learnt to sense some mystic energy surrounding me each day.

I hope you enjoy my through-the-lens vision of a world I share with you on this site and find my Art language tips useful. Your comments are an invaluable feedback to me.For more information about my work visit my Painted with Light website. Contact with via my BEHANCE Pro Site.

Lost in Virtual Space - Most Incredible Story of Computer Era

In The Eyes Of The Beholder
Two days ago I received an e-mail from an American man of the same surname  like mine, Antas. While brosing through the Internet websites in search of family roots and information about Antas name origins, he googled his surname and thus he came across my photo galleries. He decided to write to me. It would be nothing strange as everyday millions of people round the world get in touch with each other. For me, it was a nice surprise, especially because it turned out his ancestors came form Poland and his great grandpa had the same name like my grandpa. Moreover, it turned out we are peers. Yet, my surprise was that of shock almost when at the end of the e-mail he wished me Happy New Year!!! Well, to remind you, it was 25th of May. At first I have thought OK, maybe people in the US are so kind as to make special wishes all year round. However, I have never heard ot the habit:). The next day after receiving the message, the mystery of  curious New Year's wishes was  unveiled. It turned out that my newly met Antas name bearer send it right after Christmas and before the New Year, but the e-mail somewhat stuck in a virtual space and reached me after 5 month after sending it! Can you believe it!? I have never heard of such a story! 

I wonder if something similar has ever happened to you? If yes, share it with us:)
