Michal is indeed very talented and tea devoted guy. I saw lately his photo report from your studio, very nice.

On google + (just before I closed my account there) flashed me your invitation for your and Mirka's exhibition. Where? when it will be? Any pics?

Then check this album out- those pics were taken on Russian camera Zenit from 1967 and all pics are natural, without any software work...I love the softnes of the light there. http://www.flickr.com/photos/69111158@N ... 673170426/

I look regularly at his Picasa album, and e-mail him as quick as I can when a special piece pops up--they go fast--and my summer chawan came from this site, which doesn't have such a quick turnover of listings, but has some nice stuff (and ordering from them was quick and easy). I also check this site out, but haven't ordered from them so can't comment on how easy it was.

And there's another flickr album shot by Michal, all B&W with a digital camera, that's also very nice, though without the painterly quality of some of the film images in the first album.
