119/365 - Keep your focus

Today was the first day at the office after the trip to the seaside and what I realized it was way to short. I am also editing a photoshoot - a very good one I may add - and I need to finish until Friday as I am leaving again from Bucharest!
The bottom line is that I need to focus in order to get everything done in a short time!

See you tomorrow!

118/365 - History

There are those buildings that scream history when you see them - Casino from Constanta is definitely one of them. Although it is a ruin now if you look closely you can just see "the movie" . It was build in the early 1900 and it's located just near the sea. You can just imagine men dressed in tuxedos smoking on this balcony with good music inside and beautiful women.
A piece of history that is left in the past and could be an important landmark for Romania.

See you tomorrow!

118/365 - Fresh start

We managed to watch the sunrise today, to my surprise the beach was not empty families with kids were already playing and people jogging... After that we had a nice breakfeast and a long time on the beach, good time for reading and enjoing the sound of the sea! In the evening we had a great dinner and now we are low on energy so it's the end of today!
I do feel like this vacation was too short, we needed a few days more but that's life :) so tomorrow we will say goodbye to the sea and get back home.

See you tomorrow!

Today after quite a while I used also my point and shoot and I still love my sony for what it is! I don't expect the quality that Fuji delivers but it does a great job for snapshots and I don't need to take so much care of it as it is not as expensive :)).

I packed light and I am using my ipad2 for editing with snapseed.

I have also shoot some action shots that will be uploaded once I get home - for the people that say Fuji is not good at sports!

See you tomorrow!

On Saturday we will go to the seaside, this will be the first time this year and I am very happy that we managed to book a room now when all are usually fully booked. I will take only my ipad with me for processing. I still need to pack and to get a haircut... and tomorrow....will be a busy day!
I will tell you more about tomorrow on the next post!

See you tomorrow!

Day 111 of the project - just like r2d2 all day was about work at the office and at home but at least I see progress - at the office we are at the peak with 3 important projects and everybody is under pressure to deliver good results, at home I am trying to give my best and act like I haven't been to work for the past 9-10 hours and be fresh and ready for action...
A friend of mine from work is back in Romania from UK (he is living there at the moment) and hopefully the project will meet his face as he lives a very interesting life!

See you tomorrow!

I have spoked with a good friend of mine today that is attending an elite school outside of Romania. He left his very nice life here to challange himself to do this and I admire him for it - I do belive that only through though things you can really change your approach and way of thinking. I am through a simillar process now as my schedule is crazy and I am daily pushing myself and I strongly belive that someday it will be better and more relaxing.

See you tomorrow!

108/365 - Graffiti

Today I had one hour of strolling with my camera through the center of the town - usually I hate "graffiti" because most of it is the name of a crew or just some random stuff BUT I love it when it is done good and nice and improves a wall that otherwise would have been white and boring.

This particular one is where some guys have a bike store. I will not tell you more because I want to go there again and shoot some more even the bikes (these are not your typical bikes)

We will leave in a few hours and I am now packing so ...

See you tomorrow!

107/365 - In a green stage

I have spent today with my wife. It was great we have done a lot of things. We celebrated her name day and it was also my grandparents wedding anniversary - 59 years together and still rocking! Tomorrow we will leave Bucharest and go to my wife's home town to attend a wedding on Saturday. As always I haven't packed anything yet but still have time :)

See you tomorrow!

Tomorrow I will not go to work that will imply working more for my other projects :). I have a lot of things on my mind lately and I really need to clear my head so I am really eager to go away from the city in the weekend!

See you tomorrow!

105/365 - Dodging bullets - Matrix style

The photo represents most of my day - I dodged a lot of bullets :)) - I have finished one job this evening one to go and another one pending! I love the fact that I have work but I need to focus as in the weeekend we will leave to a wedding and I will not work for 2 days, that means I should finish everything before I leave!

See you tomorrow!

104/365 - In the spotlight

I wanted to know when I will hit 15000 views on Flickr but the stats service crashed 2 weeks ago and I hoped that they would fix it but it seems they don't. I have 30 views in one day and only one photo posted has 145 .... so the difference is huge and I can't tell if I passed or not the 15000 milestone... I guess this was the only option for what I was paying the pro account - I will not renew the service and I will stick to the normal user.

See you tomorrow!

103/365 - Popcorn please!

Today I went with my wife to eat and after that to take a fresh breath of air in the park where at the hour that we arrived was installed a free outdoor cinema. I love the idea but I believe that it was too much light going on.

See you tomorrow!

I have read a lot lately on what should Fuji put on the new versions of X systems. From my point there are 2 things that need improving focusing & lenses - I hope that they will do this in the next year. A lot of people asked me how is my view now on the X-E1 after a few months of use and getting used to. Well to be honest is.....a great camera! It is a sexy camera with personality something that a dslr lacks.
See you tomorrow!

100/365 - Say cheese!

100/365 - Say cheese! by Mihai Boangher
100/365 - Say cheese!, a photo by Mihai Boangher on Flickr.

The greatest thing of this project is not the photography part is the fact that you really know how many days have past since you started - usually days pass by us and we don't really pay enough attention, we don't take a moment to reflect on what we have done and what we want to do in the future.
So this is day 100 for me since I started the project - and today I have allocated some time to reflect and I will give you the summary of my last 100 days as a lot of stuff happen (when you say from May it doesn't sound much - when you say 100 days it changes the perspective):

The good:
1.I have met 2 great guys that opened a world for me that I thought it was miles away
2. Stepped up my editing skills
3. Learned a lot in general

The bad:
1. Spent considerable less time with my better half
2. I have worked very long hours at the office
3. My average sleep since June is 5-6h per night, I need rest and a vacation

Goals for the next 100 days:
1. To have more quality time with my lovely wife
2. To step up my game from an editing perspective and improve my workflow
3. To book a holiday and get some rest

99/365 - Wild Wild West

I guess we all live in the wild wild west in different areas of our lives, myself included where we need to do what we need to do in order to make things happen.

I was listening to very nice interview while I was doing my editing and they where talking about balanced life and for the first time I heard somebody that was on the same page with me - people that live a balanced life and check all the boxes don't change the world and balanced life is a thing invented by corporations - the aim is to have a fulfilled life - of course for some this overlaps with balanced life, or they are just inducing this to themselves?

See you tomorrow!

Our plans for holiday this year included Paris or London and local seaside or Greece - well we didn't had to opportunity to do neither - maybe in October we will travel outside Romania until then we need to go to the seaside.
I will have a day off from my office work tomorrow - that means I will sleep in - but I had a lot of stuff to do during the day - hopefully it will not be crazy hot outside as I will walk some miles.
See you tomorrow!
