A little bit about me...

My name is Adrian Lebar, and I'm a photographer, artist, musician and software engineer from Toronto, Canada. Temna Zvezda is a little corner of the Internet for me to experiment in. Most importantly, it's mine own place to experiment. Not some faceless corporation's (heh, Faceless, Inc?) property.

Mostly I post photographs but I also write from time to time. Sometimes fiction, sometimes my thoughts  (on cameras, music, world events, the weather - lots and lots about the weather, software engineering, etc). So don't expect much in the way of a theme here.

It was important to me to have control of my work, hence the creation of a personal blog in an era of Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, TikTok et al. This is not my first (or even my only - see A Rain of Frogs) personal blog, I've also been prolific on various social media sites and other platforms (Medium comes to mind, under a couple of names. Screen names are kinda cool, in a retro 90s Internet sort of way. Remember those?). There are many like it, but this one's mine.

I hope you enjoy what I'm posting, but if not, that's okay too. It happens.

As for the name? Just think of it as a book title or something. Or the name of a café, or even a screen name if you want. It doesn't have to have any deeper meaning than that.
