Photographer's Note

Wadowice, a little town not far from Krakow, is mainly known for the fact that it was the birthplace of late Karol Wojtyla (Saint Pope John Paul II). In October this year there will be a 40 anniversary of him being selected to become the Pope. Since he has mentioned in one of his memoirs that he enjoyed going for certain type of local cakes (kremowka) there are plenty of cafes in the town claiming that they sell the original papal kremowkas. I have visited Wadowice last year on the way to an amusement park nearby and decided I must taste the kremowkas myself. It was late afternoon and the sun was still reflected in the church tower clock, but its light was rather dissipated through thin layer of clouds.
The church in this photo is the Basilica of the Presentation of the Blessed Virgin Mary (Bazylika Ofiarowania NMP).
HERE you can have a look inside the church.
