Poisonous Passion For Perfection

Grand expectations and spectacular breakdowns. Fire that burns and leaves smoldering ruins. Bruised dreams and leftover hangover. With my eyes on fire I have blinded myself.  Woken up in the ashes of my own mistakes. Hoping slowly I will emerge back with grace.

Pontoon Deck Pleasure Garden

Tomorrow is a winter solstice, the shortest and the darkest day of the year. For that occasion I would like to brighten up the darkness and bring some more visual heat and summer mood to your hearts. I will share an editorial created during the longest and the warmest day of this year.

The main star of these photos is Hannah Honey, the winner of Born To Model reality TV modelling contest. I am sure that as you scroll through the photos and see her expressive poses, you will have now doubt about how she charmed the jury.

The entire shoot was styled and organized by Leo-Maria Jay from Leo Management and the make up was done by Damiva Beauty. Leo also introduced me to this magical location – Pontoon Deck Pleasure Garden.

If you like parks and open spaces and are looking for a place to chill in East London then you should check it out. It’s not really my part of London, so I don’t think I would have scouted it myself, so I am very happy about this discovery.

I hope you would enjoy the summer vibe and like the photos.

At The Dawn of The Photography Adventures

IMG_6365I have been coming up with hundreds of excuses to postpone starting a blog. Being a perfectionist can be a drag sometimes. It is a wonderful feature of character to keep you improving your work but an extremely intimidating one when you want to make a first step. I was always telling myself that I would like to start a quality blog and for that I need to keep practicing writing but with a schedule lacking an hour for a calm dinner I was always struggling with finding more time to sit down and and write even one of the entire list of ideas for texts I have.

After an engineering degree I have stopped writing on a daily basis and lost my flow. I have thousands of thoughts to share, but I was scared to kick the blog machine before I have at least a few posts aligned. Good posts that is.

I have been waiting for too long, postponing to share my work with you until I am ready, while I was never becoming ready. I realized that I am missing the point. 'Photography and Other Miracles' was first and foremost supposed to be a platform for sharing magical photography and only secondly the rest of the miracles. Let the perfectionism drive me and my blogging becomes better with time. However every journey begins with a single step.

The first collection of photos I will share with you is a memory of a cool spring morning in Islington district, London with my friend Marta, a seasoned lifestyle blogger and author of Riennahera. Since my pen is not as sharp as her and I feel my photos speak louder than my words, I am leaving you with the visual medium.
