Photographer's Note

The other day I returned from a fairly long visit to Poland. To my great surprise (and maybe yours) my first picture is a kind of postcard. I rarely show this kind of photos and I had not expected to post anything from this occasion, but seeing this I rather liked the light and colours, despite the dark clouds.

Furthermore, I took this picture in the company of legendary TE member Malgo (emka), whom I met for the first time after "knowing" her for years on this site.

After meeting at the Old town square in Warsaw we immediately climbed a tower to a viewing platform at the edge of the Old town, Stare Miasto. This is a view facing south, towards the city centre. In the distance you can see the well known Soviet built Palace of Culture, from the 1950's, and a short distance to the right the recently opened residential tower called The Sail (the slightly uneven light blue building), designed by Polish-born American architect Daniel Libeskind. Malgo has posted a much better photo of that particular skyscraper.

In a workshop you can get another glimpse of these two landmarks from a different direction, taken on a much sunnier day several weeks earlier.

Here is a larger version.
