Warsaw and Krakow

1

I had a lot of fun visiting Poland. I traveled through many small towns and a few big cities. I loved Krakow so very much because it was one of the most beautiful cities I have ever seen. Warsaw was much more modern looking, and its Soviet styled buildings imparted a taste of sadness to its atmosphere. I wandered down the streets of Krakow day and night. There was always something to do and so many friendly people to talk to. I enjoyed walking along the Vistula River at night in Krakow and Warsaw. I would eat at fine restaurants with my friends and drink carbonated mineral water and delectable beers. The food was delicious and incredibly affordable. I saw vast treasures owned by the Catholic Church in places of pilgrimage. I hope to go back to Poland one day.

    I like your pics and what you wrote about Poland, especially about Krakow makes me feel really proud of my home town, but maybe you consider spliting this location into two different locations, cause you know, these are different cities, not even close on the map, so what do you say? :) huggs from Poland!

    The Magic Yet To Come: Part 1

    Here’s a random and rather mysterious tale for you folks. Just the other day, I was at a local bar with a few friends. It was much like any other evening; we were sipping a couple of cocktails, recounting our adventures, falling over ourselves with laughter and half-drunkenly meditating on the meaning of life (a scientist once told me it’s 42 by the way). But then something truly strange happened. Read on to hear my story and please make a comment with your guess at the end!

    Analog By Nature

    It's late October in Copenhagen and summer was well and truly behind us. With the nights drawing in, the chances of going out with one of my cameras was slim. All was not lost at this time of year, however, as it allowed me time to focus on my own personal music projects—I am a professional composer/musician and audio engineer at my own studio by day.

    Fourth of July Celebrations Throughout the Years

    On July 4, 1776, the redrafted version of Thomas Jefferson’s Declaration of Independence made it to Congress. Some 90 years later it was made into an official holiday. Since then, Americans have celebrated Fourth of July in full regalia. Some parade in flag-themed costumes or party in their best dresses, while others bond with friends over beer in the park.

    I was given a roll of LomoChrome Purple 120 by a friend who was keen for me to try it out since he didn't have a medium format camera. I really didn't expect the results I got when I took it out for a test run on a bright winter's day in London.

    My Day in Analogue: Lazy Summer Days at Home

    Every summer, my soul screams for a lazy, hot day back at my parents' home, for some good food, relaxation, and catching up with childhood friends. This year is no different, so I went back down to my small hometown in the very northeast of Belgium to enjoy a perfect laid back day doing nothing and everything. And of course, I brought my analogue cameras along to eternalize all of these small but grand moments in life.

    Transient Living: The Craft and the Craftsmen of Denver, Colorado

    The people of a city, to me, speak volumes about its culture and sense of community. And that is why I sought out the people who make Denver that much more interesting after the initial period of settling down. My search lead to a few establishments that have contributed to making Denver what it is today. In the second story on Transient Living, I present to you two of such establishments: The Craftsman & Apprentice, and A Small Print Shop.
