Church of St. Pankracij above Slovenj Gradec

Few weeks ago this was a random trip to Koroška region in Slovenia. We didn’t have any real plans on what to visit or where exactly to go. This was one of the places we found. We were in Slovenj Gradec and we noticed there is a church on a hill nearby. It actually looked more like a castle from below. Well it actually is some mix of fortress and a church.
So we decided to visit it and at first we were driving around on the wrong streets before we figured it out how to get to the top. And when you are up there it is actually really nice, because it is surrounded with forest (and some house right next to it that doesn’t fit up there if you ask me). But hey, it was a nice random finding and worth the visit if you are in the area.

Mali Grad above Kamnik

Kamnik is my hometown, or to be more specific, I used to live in a house on the outskirts, but the town centre is like home to me too. I also visited a high school there, so I guess it is still like a second home to me. I don’t go to Kamnik very often now, even less to the old part of town, but when I do go, I always like to walk up to the chapel on the hill, because views from there are amazing.
This time it was cloudy, so you couldn’t see the Alps, but it was still nice to see the rooftops of all these old buildings, narrow streets and tiny people below. If you get a chance you really should stop and take a walk through town and up to this chapel.
So here are some photos I took while walking around the chapel Mali Grad above Kamnik.

Sv. Ana – Tunjice

I don’t live far away from a village named Tunjice, but strangely, I’ve never been to the church of Saint Anna before. Well it was probably ten years since I was last in that village too. I guess it was about time to make a trip there. And I was so lucky to have such a nice warm sunny weather!
So this post is more architectural for a change. It kind of motivated me to take some more architectural photos after a while, especially since this is my favourite type of photography… =) I guess it was a bit on a pause for a while. =)

Diploma photos: Water church

I finally decided to put my diploma photos on my blog. I was hiding them for a while, because I know they are a bit different than most photos and also because I wanted to keep some mystery around them. So now that they have been exhibited at my school and at one of the galleries in Ljubljana, I think it’s time I show them up here as well.
Title of series is “Water church”, even though none of the churches are actually named like that, but I just think title fits, because photos include both of these elements. And no, photos are not photoshopped (except some color corrections) and there is no computer liquify effect used on them. I’ll let you figure it out on your own how I did it.
