I have been walking today with A7RV and 35GM to capture something for the April Fools challenge and came up with more than one picture that I wanted to share.
I am sure you will tell me at the end that the one I chose for the challenge would not be the one you would choose ;) but such is life, we all look differently. Still, I am curious which of the lot you would pick as the one.

Lovely set, and interesting to see it in Springtime.
Particularly interesting for me is the reconstructed old city centre of Warsaw, because my late uncle, a civil engineer, was high up in the Ministry of Post War reconstruction and was heavily involved in the project of meticulously re-creating it from old paintings, etchings and photographs.
Warsaw was essentially flattened by the Nazis during the August 1944 Warsaw Uprising as the Russians halted their advance.
I've never been back, but hope to do so in future, to see it for myself.
Thanks for sharing.

You had good weather, always a pilar for good photos.
It's a very diverse set with old and new stuff. I've been to other Polish cities (Wroclaw) and I recognize a kind of Polish Architecture
I like the last one with the pigeons against a white Chapel and Supreme Court building

Thanks for bringing back some good memories of this city, but also nice to see some views I haven't seen! I started a Show us your cities thread a few years ago.

Thank you for kind comments :)
I completely forgot about "show us your cities" threads, it actually fits there quite well. Maybe it could be moved?

And yes, rebuilding the historic part of Warsaw was enormous project after what happened to our city. Very difficult times...

Interesting tour of a city I've yet to visit. My favourites here are #13 followed by #6, I'd have chosen #13 for my challenge entry
