I have graduated in mathematics and economics but I do not use either of those in my daily job. Everyday I do some kind of analyst work fooling around in Excel, Access, Postgres and SAS. Most of the time I write some stuff in VBA or look for data in various systems. It is not so easy as it may seem if you consider the number of systems you have to take into account and the relations between them.
If I do not work I try to stay fit, take pictures or try to learn something new. Recently I have discovered the HDR photography and I try to read more about it. I own Canon 500D with Canon EF-S 17-55 f/2.8 IS USM and try to make some use of it. While editing my pictures I use a *sRGB* color range. I also have a LCD which has a preset sRGB settings, which makes my life easier. Nevertheless, I am always curious how does colors in my pictures look for most of you.
My pictures come from many countries around Europe, as for now those are Poland, Austria, Belgium, Netherlands, Germany, United Kingdom, Sweden, Spain, Switzerland, Hungary, Finland. Hopefully more to come ....
I try to upload at least one photo a day, but sometimes I just do not have enough time. Moreover, the links I share are of high quality, i.e., no crappy images, sales, articles etc. I have started a daily photography theme #self-portrait-saturday
. If you want your post, with a self portrait, to appear on the G+ page dedicated to the theme, please add a #self-portrait-saturday
to the post. Do not forget to mention me in the post, or notify me in any other way. So, I would not miss it.
If you like reading books, fantasy in particular, I suggest reaching for Steven Erikson's Malazan Book of the Fallen. Great and epic series. Below is my favourite quote from one of the books.
"It was said― Call to Shadow (IX. ii)
she turned the blade on herself then
