Here’s one of George the cat. I took this in 2012. Ilford HP5 plus 400 and Yashica FX-3
Another blast from the past. This was taken in 2013 with Yashica FX-3, 50 mm lens. I think that Kodak Gold 200 was the film I used.
Wooden mustangs, roaming without moving. This was also taken in Timisoara, May 2019. Expired Ilford PAN 400 and Yashica FX-3, 50 mm lens.
Let’s upload something colorful, for a change. I was very surprised with good results of the film I used here. I took this photo in May 2019, but the film actually expired in 2004 so I didn’t quite know what to expect. The film I used was Kodak Gold 200 in Yashica FX-3, 50 mm lens
A public park event space in Timisoara. The chairs were begging for a shot! Not “reserved”, I’m joking of course – the space was simply unused at the time. I used an expired Ilford PAN 400 film in Yashica FX-3 and a 50 mm lens.

Kalemegdan fortress in Belgrade is always inspiring enough… Ilford HP5+ 400, Yashica FX-3
Just a passage with stores downtown…
Let me introduce you to Alex. It felt almost like someone left this plastic mannequin torso for the sole purpose of me taking a photo. I used Ilford HP5+ 400 in Yashica FX-3.
After a long pause, I took my camera again. Which one? The analog one – It was time for my Yashica FX-3 to wake up again. I bought Ilford PAN 400 roll of film this time, and the 50mm lens is still on. That grain, I love it. Here are a couple of photos – I chose some featuring my daughter, so it’s a series now :).
We have thick fog this morning in Belgrade – reason enough to take your camera!
O.K, mosquitoes literally killed us this summer, and tonight we’ll have the honour to sleep normally without getting bit, as the public utility companies finally remembered to do their job.
I just wanted to take a shot of the small aeroplane spraying death over mosquitoes (aerial spraying), but a bird flew in to my frame at the exact moment I took the shot. Auto zoom changed its mind and the bird turned out more important than the aeroplane. I’m so happy this happened! What do you think?
And then… Yeah, I photographed the aeroplane as I wanted initially. The angle was better, actually 😀
Just another shot of Mr. Moon :). The sky last night (August 10, 2014) was perfectly clear so I had to take a couple of new photos. This time, it is the so-called “supermoon”, due to its position closest to Earth. I really really need a 800mm lens for this kind of shots, since 300 mm is hardly enough… 😀
This time, I was interested in the storm, but I wanted to make an animated gif of a lightning. Since my camera Canon Rebel XS does not have the video function, I used my mobile phone to record the video. The rain hit hard and I had to stay behind the closed window.
The most interesting part of the video was this nearby hit, and I uploaded it on Instagram
Afterwards, I took the 17 individual frames, the relevant ones, and made this animated gif for a better view of the lightning. As you can see, it was a double hit.
One of my common paths through the city leads me next to this magnificent building I take photos of from time to time. Here is a detail. It is the Museum of Vuk and Dositej. The architectural style is eye candy. Here I finally returned that brilliant 50 mm lens, for the last two rolls of film had some unsuccessful photos due to lens focusing issues (the other 50 mm lens I tested at the time).
An old barbershop caught my eye last summer. Right from another time, but still open. Downtown Belgrade is a place of franchise stores and coffeshops today. I’m glad at least certain spots and people preserve the spirit of old times. I’m so happy that I had my old SLR instead of the D-SLR camera with me at that moment.
Total Eclipse of the Moon. 15.06.2011. Belgrade. A small practice project of mine, I thought it would be interesting enough for the Projects section. Well, I never tried my Canon Rebel XS on an eclipse before the 2011 attempt. Preiously I tried to shoot a moon eclipse with my compact camera Canon A700 and failed big time. Well, I was not satisfied with this attempt also, since there was lot of humidity in the air, leftovers from that morning’s clouds and rain. Anyway, to shoot an eclipse of the Moon is a totally different thing than to shoot it on some other occasion.
I was very happy about my previous shot of the Moon (check it out below, it was taken in May 2011) and thought that I would be able to repeat the quality but I… Just observe this one as an amateur photo story of the event. Every one of these individual shots of Moon above required entirely different ISO and aperture parameters, so I was rather busy at the time.
One of my old photos, from January 2008, shot on the banks of the Danube river. The photo came out rather dark (the whole series), so it needed some light correction later on. If only I knew then what I know now… There are a couple more photos of these boats, I might add some later on if I get around to editing them.
Photographing hair can be done differently. Not everything is for fashion magazines. It’s all about composition.
ps. At the time this website was located on a different domain ( it was moody-cat.com), it’s design was showcased in a Pepin Press reference web design book “Web Design Index 9” for the year 2010, showing “the good stuff” in the world of web design at the time. This photo was accidentally the one that was the first one at the site when the screenshot was made. Nice!
Old Bratislava is simply in love with the camera. I used a bit of sepia to enchance the atmosphere.
