Koos, this is a fine collection. I loved your "feed the birds" with the pigeon mid-flight. A moment captured perfectly. The quirky photos always get my attention - the window full of colouful bras is a favourite, and I laughed when I saw your still life with urinals. They really are very ulilitarian, aren't they?I really like the way rain, especially on glass, softens and distorts images. Southern Poland looks very industrial, but you find the beauty in it. I think the bras would make interesting wallpaper. Or wrapping paper perhaps?
Fabulous. I was just wondering, since you post alot about Poland, are you from there? Do you have a connection there?
Grace, Koos is one hundred percent Dutch, but with a spiritual affinity to Poland ;-)The photos are a fabulous record, Koosje, and rather beautiful too. As your Polish friends have said, much of this will be gone in a few years after the Europeans have had their way....sigh
Thanks so much for the comments, all 3 from women that are special to me.Yes, Margie, that pigeon pic was a really lucky shot, after sort of sneaking on those people as if the pigeons on the ground were the subject. This is the advantage of the wide angle - people don't realise that so far out of the middle they are still in the image.I don't expect anyone to appreciate the pictures the way I do, so your appreciation is a bonus to me.Grace, as Val says I am quite Dutch, but then again a full 50% Frisian. The Frisians have their own language which is much closer to English than to Dutch and even by looking at them you know they're a much of lots of other peoples, like the Portuguese and the Indonesians.Having said that, I just stumbled across Poland in Google Earth and now I am simply in love with the country.
