Photoalbum of Stanislav

To see a photograph in its actual (larger) size, click it, and it will be opened in a lightbox or separate window.

Here you can find some photographs of me in different periods of life. It is not easy to distinguish between photos with me alone and those with my family and friends. However, here I am presented, though in my life I am rather a photograher than a photo object.

2018.06.07 I tried to fit the photo frame called Dubai Frame but it seems I did this not the best way. :-)
2018.06.07 In hot Dubai cats let you pet them not because they are tame but because of the heat they have no strength to escape. :-)
