Before I had studied Zen for thirty years, I saw mountains as mountains, and waters as waters. When I arrived at a more intimate knowledge, I came to the point where I saw that mountains are not mountains, and waters are not waters. But now that I have got its very substance I am at rest. For it's just that I see mountains once again as mountains, and waters once again as waters.

—The Way of Zen 126, Ch'ing-yüan Wei-hsin


About meEdit

I've seen mountains as mountains and waters as waters already. Now I'm on my way to see that the mountains are not the mountains and the waters are not the waters.

What I do as an adminEdit

I'm working as an admin in waves. Most of the time I just don't have time or energy to be an admin and I'd just keep on uploading new pictures and I wouldn't use my admin rights at all (I even got a few de-adminship warnings). On the other hand, when I put Commons as my priority I'm doing my best to help the community out with anything what's needed.

This waving-style is more or less done by my lifestyle. If I'm active as an admin, I'm settled somewhere, and if I'm not, I'm somewhere on the road, chasing pictures of the lonely mountains far away from internet.

What I do as a userEdit

I've got a few projects I'm working on - or used to work on - more systematically. I move from place to place from time to time so my effort is spread over a few countries such as the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Spain or New Zealand.

AnimalsEdit

I love animals but I don't like ZOOs. That's pretty tough situation for a photographer, isn't it? Therefore my pictures of animals are coming from their natural habitats or wildlife sanctuaries. I don't really have many of them but it's something I'd like to be focused on one day.

Protected areasEdit

Tramping and going to barren places far away from everything is a big passion of mine. Taking pictures of large landscapes, gorgeous national parks and lonely mountain ranges is the core of my contribution to Commons.

Cultural HeritageEdit

I like exploring cultural heritage too. It's kind of exciting to see all the hidden and often overlooking treasures on the places one wouldn't expect them.

World HeritageEdit

Quite a new project of mine focused on the World Heritage Sites both natural and cultural. I haven't had many chances to work on it but let's just see what happens in the future.
