Six years ago I posted my first photo on TE, then was
the second , and ...
During these years I posted 1607 photos from six continents. As for so many people here, it was for me decisive moment, as my life had changed since then. I became addicted to this site. Many of you know what it means. My day starts with checking what is new, choosing the photo to post, writing critiques. How much time I spent by computer? But the most important from me are the friendships made. I met in person more than 90 people, some of them after many years of virtual friendship. Many of the people are no active here any more but I am still in touch on other sites, like Facebook and Photofolia. And quite many became my friends in real life. The amazing thing is that the new friends are so different in language spoken, age, education, religion. etc. and we all have common passion for photography and travels, and even when see each other for the first time, it seems as if we have known for many years.
Thank you for all the smiles, these green and these real!
For this special occasion I wanted to make a photo unusual for me. These are Golden Terraces known from other photos by Craig, Gosia and Leszek, and me. This view is from inside. very short later the guard came to inform me, that the photos are not allowed. Through the triangular windows you can see the new Golden Tower which I will show later.
Why is the name Golden terraces and Golden Tower when every one sees they are blue? The reason is quite simple. They are near Zlota street, and zlota means golden.

Hi Malgo. I blink and there you are next to my photo! An interesting choice for your sixth anniversary- I hope you don't feel caged in.Just joking, although this POV makes me feel like a fish in a net. Sve najbolje za sljeducih sedam godina. Pozdrav. Klaudio.
rigoletto (32746) 2013-08-27 6:33

Hello, fantastic architectural shot. The lines and the color are just great. I appreciate your notes and info on the building as well. I agree with your sentiments about this site too.

Gratuluje tylu lat i zdjęć na TE. Masz bardzo ładną galerię, a i to nowe zdjęcie jest bardzo udane i nadające się na takie świętowanie rocznicy, Ty widzisz i pokazujesz świat po swojemu, powodzenia w ciągu dalszym
dkmurphys (42431) 2013-08-27 9:52
Spectacular detail for this event! Thinking about it, I see that in October I'll achieve 7 years here and I could copy/paste your note because I feel the same.
To many more years!
cornejo (22452) 2013-08-27 10:03
Witaj Malgo, congratulations on your anniversary in TE.

félicitations pour ces 3 ans sur TE, et bonne continuation.
La photo est bien choisie avec une belle lumičre et un graphisme intéressant.
limielski (2571) 2013-08-27 12:02
O widze, że sie wybrałas do Złotych Szałasów jak niktórzy je nazwyają :-)
Pogonili Cie jak mnie! :-( Ładne abstrakcyjne ujecie - Super.
PS Gratulacje z okazji 6 lat!!!!!
PaulVDV (17217) 2013-08-27 12:06
Congratulations with your TE-anniversary.
Regarding the Golden Terraces, the same thing happened to me when I was there. The security guard told me to put my camera away. His disappointment must be great if he ever discovers how many photos of GT are published on TE :)
Your personal vision on the transparent roof of this commercial complex provides a splendid modern architecture shot.
Best regards, Paul

Hello dear Malgo,
Congratulations to your sixth anniversary at TE !
This capture is perfect and has also a symbolic value : crowning your success at TE.
TFS and best regards
saxo042 (33878) 2013-08-27 12:46
Congratulations to all these years on TE. I am really impressed. I have been a member a bit longer but you have nearly twice uploads and you have definitely met a lot of other TE members. I have only met four, so far (and I notice that you haven´t met any of those). Many members have left this site, and whatever the reasons may be, I can understand that some of them just get fed up. And you celebrate your anniversary with a very fine picture, interesting architecture.
bartekp (4634) 2013-08-27 12:48
Gratuluję! I ładna kompozycja na uczczenie jubleuszu.
worldcitizen (5613) 2013-08-27 13:33
Congrats on your six year TE anniversary. :-) I like the photo you chose for this occasion. This frame, filled with undulating glass triangles, is very attractive. The sunlight and shadows on the bottom are lovely, and I like the view of modern buildings above. I even get a glimpse of KFC. :-) Here's to many more years of sharing photos and making friends! :-)
PiotrF (2380) 2013-08-27 13:51
Dzisiaj złoty uśmiech.
Kawałek życia tu pozostawiłaś, ale ktoś powiedział że z poznawania świata najlepsze i najbardziej wartościowe jest poznawanie ludzi. Po tym co piszesz, ceniąc sobie bardzo przyjaźnie które tu zawiązałaś, jest to najprawdziwsza prawda.
Złote tarasy (szałasy oj uśmiałem się) są specyficznym miejscem do fotografowania. Nie pierwszy raz słyszę o problemach fotografów w tym miejscu, choć przyznam, że ja takowych nigdy nie miałem - cóż pewnie na zasadzie, że ochroniarz do wyrośniętego faceta nie podejdzie bo się go boi, a nad bezbronną kobietę czuje przewagę...
pozdrawiam, życząc kolejnych miłych chwil na TE
jcpix (6504) 2013-08-27 17:03
This is a better place with you here, so allow me to join the long list and say "congrats" on a wonderful achievement of 6 years!! You've undoubtedly helped the goal of learning about the world through photography and friendship. I'm coming to understand the "addiction," and it's a good one to have! :)
A great image to mark the occasion, it has an amazing graphic type appeal with the many integrated lines, shapes, and overall form in this smart composition which details it superbly. Here's to many, many more! Cheers!
Friendly regards from Phoenix,
jjcordier (67180) 2013-08-27 22:32
Félicitations pour ces 6 ans de présence active sur TE, tant par tes photos quasi quotidiennes (qui nous font voyager dans tous les coins du monde)que par tes commentaires toujours appréciés. Je me retrouve dans la note que tu as joint ŕ l'image!
Une excellente photo au graphisme trčs attractif pour fęter l'événement.
Silvio1953 (105381) 2013-08-28 0:59
Ciao Malgorzata, congratulations for your six year on TE, beautiful composition with fantastic graphic, splendid light and colors, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio
macondo (18461) 2013-08-28 2:28
Congratulations on your 6th anniversary - so many countries and so many photos! And on this day of celebration I find your photo is right next to Klaudio's. May you upload another 1607 photos in the next 6 years.
Your photo is a dramatic one of this exhilarating structure - you found a good viewpoint, and I'm glad you managed to take the shot before the guard came along. But I know you can take a photo very quickly!
I like to see a shot like this in the larger version/higher resolution. And it is good to see that you realise that a photo larger than the one you have uploaded cannot be viewed on many monitors, and of course virtually no laptops. I find this one is just right for my 24" screen - so thank you.
My warmest regards,
timecapturer (36978) 2013-08-28 5:56
happy anniversary! A super shot to celebrate this milestone. Love the symmetry and plethora of triangular shapes here. Light and clarity beautifully mastered and the effect just dazzling!
lgir (6651) 2013-08-28 9:17
congratulation for this 6 years on TE.
Thank you for all these shares and especially for all those to come. This last, very aesthetic, is very successful.
claudeD (26916) 2013-08-29 7:14
first of all, my congratulations for 6 years on TE and all your interesting shots that you have published here on this site.Go on shooting and sharing with us ...
Excellent architecture shot with a very good composition and fine sharpness.Very good contribution to TE. TFS.

Congratulations for the 6 years on TE! A wonderful image to celebrate it, with very good graphical effect and beautiful colors! Excellent job!
mkamionka (27051) 2013-08-29 7:58
bardzo mi przykro ze moge zaoferowac Ci jedynie zielony usmiech jak na razie. To co piszesz brzmi bardzo ciekawie, to jak pasja, ktora uczy i bawi.
Czasami tylko nachodza mnie mysli ze to wszystko dzieje sie na stronie ktora nalezy do prywatnej firmy i ktora czerpie z naszej obecnosci finansowe korzysci, ale nie mam lepszego rozwiazania.
Mysle ze Twoja obecnosc jest dla TE ogromnie wazna.
Wiadomo ze sa tutaj rozne prady, Ty jak mowisz jestes bardziej podroznikiem ale rowniez fotorgrafem.
I to podoba mi sie wlasnie tutaj -owszem chcemy doskonalic warsztat ale ciekawsze jest poznawac swiat i ogladac zdjecia tych miejsc do ktorych sami nie jestesmy w stanie dotrzec.
Ty jestes jedna z osob ktora pokrywa niemal cala mape swiata, a wiec cos w rodzaju guru.
Nie ma chyba obecnie nikogo kto spotkalby tak wielu forumowiczow jak Ty.
Zdjecie zaskakuje. Polaczylas w kadrze dwie ciekawe struktury. tarasy chyba widzialem kiedys z daleka ale nie wiem czy nie byly w budowie. Pokazujesz czesto warszawe jakiej zupelnie nie znam poniewaz tak wiele zmian sie w stolicy dokonuje. na prowincji jak w np w Tarnowie zmiany sa niewielkie. Owszem autostrada do Krakowa jest gotowa. Ciekawie bylo mi zjezdzac z autostrady widzac zjazd na Tarnow. Niewierzylem ze to moze byc za mojego zycia mozliwe. Poza tym zadnych zmian a wlasciwie regres. Ludzie ogromnie przytloczeni zalamani i wielu nadal rozwaza emigracje. Na ulicach coraz wiecej starszych ludzi.
Sorry rozpisalem sie.
Gratulacje z okazji rocznicy!
photoray (6638) 2013-08-29 11:30
Congratulations on your magical 6 year annivesary as a Trekie, and this view is certainly eye catching for the curving patterns of triangles with multiple colored background.
Nicely composed and created,
jemaflor (74044) 2013-08-29 11:57
Interesting architecture and good light and sharpness management ... and good six years on TE. Tfs.
nikkitta (8885) 2013-08-29 17:30
Congrats for being and enjoying so much TE along six years and with more than 1600 post, a true and good work
To commemorate it you chose a quite original capture, lot of symmetrical lines and great reflections
ikeharel (43903) 2013-08-30 3:04
Fantastic pic. of the modern iron-bars and glass roof, nowadays can be seen in many places where sun-rays most needed.
A good way to conserve light and heat in big places.
Not applicable to Israel, we have lot's of sunshine.
Great clear view, marvelous many green and blue diff. tones.
annjackman (15487) 2013-08-30 5:19
What a significant acheivement - congratulations. I enjoy this picture very much. The graphic shapes and colours has made a smart image. How Warsaw has changed since my visit to the university there many years ago when there was almost nothing in the shops and life appeared very difficult.
Very best wishes,
Sonata11 (31199) 2013-08-30 7:54

The first congratulate these six years in TE, magnifying the gallery with splendid work, which we enjoyed, I hope many more remain.
A splendid image with a nice outlook and superb graphics with this deck so original.
A heartfelt and beautiful note that lives up to your quality as a person.
Lovely colorful, which makes the picture much more delicious.
Very good the management of the brightness and sharpness.
Enjoy a great weekend, my friend.
macjake (45574) 2013-08-30 13:21
oh yes, I remember this place well.
Yes congrats on your 6 year anniversary, and yes, I too wonder how much time we have spent on our computers!!!!
thanks for much for everything Malgo, you and Leszek were great hosts and i still think back to our time together with a smile :) Especially when Tosca banged her head against the glass wall in that building!!!!
and you said she was just testing out the physics! lol
dynamic and powerful shot here, its certainly an eye catcher isn't it. I loved the modern side of warsaw as it surprised me.
thebest (4114) 2013-08-30 20:41
Hello dear friend,
So many wonderful lines & cool tones here - Interesting Architecture.
Emka you certainly have very good photo's in your library taken on your trip to Australia... you put most of us to shame with your efforts - such a good job.
Congratulations for your input of 6 years on TE.
Muchos love - Dawn.xo

gratulacje na ten jubileusz! Brawo za wytrwalosc. Milo sie tu nam gaworzy i pokazuje zdjecia. Ciekawe swoje dokonania podsumowujesz.
Interesujacy fragment budowli w nowoczesnym stylu w Warszawie. U nas tez sa Zlote Tarasy ale w mniejszym wymiarze.
carlo62 (19333) 2013-08-31 0:33
sei hanni di passione e di lavoro, anche se piacevole, per postare foto e commentare, ma anche di nuove ricerche e nuovi scatti da proporre che diventano abbastanza semplice se facciamo un viaggio, ma sono piů difficili nei momenti che passiamo a casa nostra.
Hai descritto perfettamente la giornata di ognuno di noi, ma anche la voglia di condividere amicizie al di la della foto.
Complimenti per i tuoi sei anni, la tua gallerie č molto vasta e ricca di bellissime foto, compreso questa che va ad arricchirla.
Ti auguro moltissimi anni ancora di scatti e di condivisioni.
PS č giusto l'indirizzo mail che trovo qui su TE?
EstudioChispa (1694) 2013-09-02 9:47
What a fabulous image with great colours and interesting geometry!
And what a milestone for you -- CONGRATULATIONS on SIX YEARS!
It is my great pleasure to be in your circle here!
ChrisJ (91200) 2013-09-03 1:41
A good upward pov on the wavy patterns of the roof with good sharpness, color and framing. Excellent repetition of the geometric patterns and shapes. The diagonal row of green plants at left nicely balances the yellow railing at right. Good that the structure is partly transparent & we can see the bg clouds and sky. Tfs!
KristinsCamera (1889) 2013-09-03 20:53
how fun is this?!
hi malgo ~ i agree with klaudio, i feel like i am inside a fish when i look at these waves of jewel-tone architectural 'scales' ~ magic!
congratulations on your six years & congratulations on getting this shot before the guard got to you!

Ciekawa geometria tego sklepienia.
Dobry kadr i kolory.

I'm very sad, because I arrive too late for your 6th anniversary in this site. Congratulations!
You are a great traveller and we can enjoy and discover the beauty of our world, thanks to your good photographic work.
This view inside the huge structure, with its amazing graphical power, and the buildings we see as well across the glass, create a wonderful composition, with which you celebrate perfectly this event.
An excellent work.
