Life can surprise

Sometimes life can really surprise! A bit more than 2 years ago I badly damaged by knee and had to go through a surgery and a very long recovery process. I was not able to properly walk for 6 months and, naturally, did not use my camera during that period. But as soon as I could go for a walk, I took it with me and went to the old town in Warsaw. I saw a girl playing a street pantomime and I stood there observing and taking pictures for more than an hour and this was the maximum my knee could handle at that time. I loved these pictures - they were genuine and full of emotions...and the only regret I had was that I did not know who the young lady was and did not have any chance to share them back with her.

2 years later....

Last month 7 of my images were exhibited in the outdoor gallery and her picture was one of them. Imagine the surprise on her face when she was passing by and saw her picture in the gallery:-) She contacted me to express her amazement....and I am so happy that the picture has a name:-)

Photo Exhibition in Warsaw

Some of my photographs are going to be exhibited on one of the "Street Galleries" in Warsaw from today till September the 20th. Nothing major at all, but if you are going to be walking close to Wiejska 2 (next to Sejm building), you can see them printed in large formats. This is what I enjoyed the most when I saw them printed - they look so much different compared to a digital copy. Photographs should be printed, period:-)
