Here is some space for other things I enjoy and do. For instance, I love playing the game of pétanque – the famous French jeu de boules. Not a master player at all, my passion for the game was enough to temporarily become a registered pétanque player in the Czech official association. So besides going out for conferences (as sociologist) or for concerts (as musician) I was also travelling during weekends to take part in pétanque tournaments - I almost stopped participating recently, however, being frustrated by the effort to transform pétanque into a top-level sport… Occasionally, I go out for various kinds of other trips. While being on trips, I like taking photographs. Digital cameras restored creative control over the process to private individuals, so taking pictures became fun again – like when I, as a little boy, had darkened our bathroom and tinkered with black-and-white pictures with the help of smelly chemicals. Taking photographs is my small private pleasure – and precisely this is what this section is for: unimportant private pleasures.

As such, this section is an additional space of my main personal web site, the other two sections being devoted to sociology and music. Switching between the sections is possible via the top menu. Alternatively, you can use the following virtual URLs:
