Nothing much about me is delicate. My grandma used to call me harambaša, the word used for hajduk senior commanders, derived from Turkish word for bandit leader. I rest my case.
But if you drop me into the nature of Slovenian countryside with my first pro camera (NIKON D700) to test, results could border on delicate, the prompt chosen by Leya for this week’s Lens-Artists photo challenge.
But I have more trust in delicatessen.
These photos are from the only trip taken during the week-long but soggy visit to my country of origin from which I have just returned. First we visited Rakov Škocjan, the oldest landscape park in Slovenia, protected since 1949, and from there we went to Lake Cerknica which is intermittent, meaning that it comes and goes and you never know what you are going to get.
These images are as delicate as it’s possible to be delicate with something that feels heavy as a machine gun (as if I’d know) and has a neat little target smack dab in the middle. Come out, come out, wherever you are…
Without much more fanfare, here we go. More from the lake will come at another time, today nature surrounding the stream.
If you feel that it could be done better, you’re right. If you feel it’s on the blurry side – bingo, you’re right again. But I’ll never get the second chance do to it for the first time.
