The smell of coal

This little series of photos was made in a coal processing plant. There is still some activity, despite the fact that nearby coal mine was shut down last year. Area around is now used by transport company as a container terminal.

Tripod nights

I went shooting at night after very long time. My tripod needs replacement as one leg kept falling off. With caution I was still able to use it.  Warm first half of February made night shoot pleasing experience. I was shooting (mostly) in monochrome filtr which is in my Olympus setting.

Ostrava with Ian and Pavel

At the end of the year Ian was coming to Poland to visit his family over the Christmas holiday. We talked and Ian accepted my offer to shoot together in Ostrava. I also offered Pavel R. to join us. So we were three of us shooting and it was fun. I showed guys my favorite places in Ostrava. But there was not enough time to show them everything I wanted. Short December daylight . Anyway, I made some photos, despite the fact that I have visited these locations many time before.

So, we had visited Lower Area Vitkovice industrial park, active slag heap in Ostrava – Heřmanice, former coal mine Jan Šverma, abandoned ghetto on Přednádražní st., mining museum Landek, abandoned oil refinery Ostramo and couple more places along the way.

Ian even made a lovely booklet/zine (see his blog post) where he included photos he made in Ostrava. He had send me a copy. Pleased me very much.

So, here are my photos from that weekend.
