I recently had the amazing opportunity to fly a Diamond DA20 in a circuit around Warsaw — wonderful experience.

I remember thinking back then that that terrace was one place I wouldn’t mind eating breakfast on.

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
This is the one with Apple Fitness+.
I recently set up a new completely new Home in the Home app and needed to move all my stuff over from one to the other. This turned out harder than I had anticipated.
I love how perspective not only makes the MacBook look tiny, but also breaks its symmetry.

I took a motorcycle from Georgioupoli to Elafonisi, along the west coast of Crete — that stretch of road is truly fantastic.

This is the one with the intercom feature for HomePods, but make sure to go through the on-boarding process in the Home app first, since it doesn’t seem to want to work otherwise.
This is a small bug-fix update but well worth it, considering how buggy 14.0 is. I’m currently on the 14.2 beta and even that one is far from perfect.
Don’t forget to backup your device first and please be warned — iOS 14 and iPadOS 14 are still chock full of small bugs. You might have some software issues with your apps too, if they haven’t been updated yet.

This release fixes a few bugs, which includes a “thermal management issue that caused some displays to exhibit a green tint.”
This was shot under Świętokrzyski Bridge in Warsaw.

This shot was taken a few minutes before the fireworks show of The Great Orchestra of Christmas Charity. I was lucky enough to have a pretty good spot to take the shots from, but I really wish I had had a better camera back then.

Since I’m going through my library chronologically, there might be a few more squirrels coming up in the near future.

I fulfilled another one of my decade long dreams today. It was extremely emotional, but since this was a material dream, it was nowhere close to what I felt at my wedding. I am writing these words three days later and I still can’t believe it finally came to fruition. Iwona already pinched me — didn’t help.
Squirrels have the best PR of all rodents — they’re just so cute.

This shot is not only has terrible composition, but it’s also very soft and underexposed (thank you RAW!), however this squirrel is much too adorable to not post it. I did have only a second or so to take the photo, so there’s that, but I have to admit, the quality difference in DSLR sensors has come a long way in recent years.

The shot above (as well as the one below) were both shot on the same day as “Looking On” from yesterday, but these are an example of two failures on my part. The squirrels in Warsaw’s Royal Łazienki Park often take on the funniest of poses, but they only hold them for a second or less. This means that there’s barely any time to focus, let alone manually correct. I managed to take these two shots and they were separated by only 0.04 seconds (not a typo; 4 hundredths of a second; the shot above was taken at 14:03:44 and the one below at 14:03:48, which you can check in the EXIF). This is a prime example of why the Canon 10D never cut it for fast-paced shots — it’s AF just couldn’t keep up, back-focusing on the first shot and front-focusing on the second.

Those people in the background left a nut for the squirrel and continued walking. I like to imagine the squirrel’s looking on, wondering if they’ll come back with more. Shot in Royal Łazienki Park.

I have been to Barcelona a few times but have yet to understand why so many people love this city. Sure, there are some pretty amazing things to see, but as a whole, it has nothing that attracts my interest, which is strange, since I usually find something to love about a place. And yes, this includes the Basílica de la Sagrada Família, from which I took this photo.

Please remember to get a full encrypted backup via iTunes or Finder of your iPhone or iPad if you’re planning on getting on the iOS 14 beta train. This is just in case you need to go back and want to minimise data loss.
Slovenia’s coast isn’t particularly long but it is beautiful.
