When I see the photo's and read the story.

Poland a place to go and Wroclaw is also a place where many skippers come from.

Thank you all for sharing.

Kind regards Willem.
All ways in a good mood here.

Leo, lovely shots of Jawor on page 2. "HEY" is a great catch and "G is for Green" as well. I might have a variation on that that theme later. And from around St Martin's you'll see my product of 3 for sure

Domien, also a nice series of Jawor, the ladder in 7 is hilarious, excellent caption.

Leo, your interpretation of the Gross Rose crematorium is absolute top quality

Domien, I like your colour ones of Gross Rosen very much as well. Very powerful in colour and the solemn mood is still very present!

Tim, after I saw at least 4 cameras pointed at that Jaworian I passed, but your's is excellent with the lantern in the shot. And the caption is priceless.

Before I get to my Jawor shots first a few from the before breakfast walk around the hotel with Domien (while most others were still quietly lying on both ears).

1: Mlyn Maria (Maria Mills) from the same complex as our Tumski Hotel, but still in need of restoration.


2: We went birding as well (for a few minutes )


3: Oh, those colours....


4: When in need it's always good to have two choices


5: A quiet beach at the riverside


6: Waste from the afterparty (there was a big concert on one of the islands near our hotel)


7: Broken


1,5,6: NEX6 + E10-18/4
2,3,4,7: A850 + 80-200 HS G

Thanks for all your comments Tim!

Always a fan of these style portraits and your focus spot on for every one.
You must have been quick to capture #4 , and fun to see Domien, ever mindful of the camera in #2.
Am I recognising the softness of the 58mm in #6 and #7?


Yes #4 was an exceptional moment.
And no: all with the 35/1.4! But I processed these with softness.
The shots with the 58mm didn´t turn out so well.

You´ve just answered the question `Where´s Leo´.

Pieter thanks for your comments!

I wish I had gone with you on these before breakfast walks ...

Yes great colours in #3; he reminds me of the man I shot in Jawor who had a similar ehrm ... embonpoint.

Domien: the serenity is very palpable in #1!

A few from the Muzeum Przemysłu i Kolejnictwa na Śląsku (The Museum of Industry and Railway in Silesia) in Jaworzyna Śląska.

To be honest, I had no great expectations of this museum. But it proved a fascinating place to visit.
An enormous quantity of rolling stock, partly in the open air.
There's is still a great lot of restoration to be done but to me that's also the charm of this place.

Open air museum:

1


2


3


Inside, a lot of rolling stock waiting to be restored:

4


5


6


7


8


All with NEX-5N + Sony E 10-18/4; except #1 and #3, with A900 + CZ 24-70/2.8; full exif inside

If you want to see more: I also posted some in Show us your railway pics

Yes; that's why I wonder why these museums sometimes don't seem to agree with you.
Thanks Michel!

This was a very different museum from 'ours' in Utrecht!

@Pieter
An eclectic mix Pieter and several just make me smile.
#4 - that's not a choice, it about whether you wash your hands before or afterwards
#3 - not just the colours that are prominent! and enhanced by your shallow DOF


@Domien
Really nicely capturing the mood of that gritty old building in #2

@Leo
#1 and #8 my favourites, but a big smile for the couple of faces in #3

Domien, serenity and no wind, great shot!

Leo, nice shots in the train museum. Especially like # 1 and 8. Shows how big all these machines really are.

Some more impressions from Jawor:

1: My version of G is for..... a symphony of colours


2: You wouldn't believe what I payed for these rolls, unbelievable...


3: Tim, really going for it


4: After walking through Jawor certain group members all had a sudden urge that needed to be addressed


5: Enjoying a day out in the park


All A850 + KM 24-105D

Pieter, looking at #1 I wondered what that woman would think if she saw this thread. . A symphony in colours, yes, in G.

I was too late for #4. I'm glad you made it. It's
(to those not present: Tim was inside)
