thirty below or climbing denali (6,190m)

  Let me start with the end — I didn’t make the summit. I reached 5,900-something meters, around a couple of hours or so from the top. And turned back, despite having plenty of fuel in the tank. Do I have regrets? Perhaps. Mostly because I’m positive I would have made it on the next …

antarctica, land of eternal snow

  Astronauts have said that the most distinctive feature of Earth as seen from space is Antarctica, which “radiates light like a great white lantern across the bottom of the world”. Its ice sheet is over 2km thick on average, contains more that 90% of the world’s ice and snow, and has an area greater …

happy 30th anniversary mom and dad!

  My parents have been together for 30 years! It sounds crazy just saying it 🙂 To celebrate the joyous occasion, my brother and I decided to do something special and secretly reenact some of our favorite childhood photos that bring back so many great memories.

i see fire

  Right after New Year’s we were found ourselves in the south of Bulgaria, trying to reach tiny Kovachevitsa — a preserved old village famous for its beautiful surroundings in the Rhodope mountains, the hospitality of the locals and the great food. As we were driving, we saw some smoke coming up over the hill …

a tribute to discomfort

  If you’ve ever wondered why some of us photo enthusiasts wait around for hours, pull of crazy stunts and go to the extreme to take a single shot, I think this video will sum it up quite nicely. Although I haven’t pushed myself nearly as much as this guy (the closest I’ve gotten was …

crazy adrenaline sunday

  My buddy Chris and I luckily both ended up being in Bulgaria around the same time (doesn’t happen that often nowadays) which always warrants some craziness. So naturally we decided to take advantage of the beautiful weather last weekend and do an insane adrenaline Sunday — skydiving and bungee jumping in one day 😀 …

lower your eyelids and go to the sun

  So I went skydiving again this past weekend with my buddy Chris (always fun, bro!) and realized there are few things that make me as happy as that feeling of complete freedom you get in midair… kinda wish I was more like these guys. Note to self: somehow find a way to jump with …

you can’t hurry love

  They did it! 🙂 In true Radinka & Biser fashion, the couple decided to do the modern version of eloping and get married in secret. There will still be a larger, more formal wedding, but it was kinda cute they couldn’t wait another few months to publicly (so to speak) proclaim their love 😉 …

my dad is a lionheart

Inspired by a friend’s book he read recently, my dad had this crazy idea to put on some medals he’s gotten over the years (none are war related, don’t worry) and take some fun shots 😉 I love that man.   I played around with the more serious one to make it look like an …
