Recently I posted a picture of the Chapel on the Water just outside Krakow. Here is an alternative processing of the same picture. I quite like the black & white look. What do you think?
This is the chapel of the cathedral in the Wieliczka Saltmine, Krakow. The mine is so deep that the workers built homes in the mines (the mine is just over 300m deep; by modern standards it is not deep at all, but at the time that was a long way down), and being religious people they needed places to pray. So they build a cathedral under the ground. This is the front of the cathedral, the “choir” from where the services were conducted.
Just look at this beautiful library. Doesn’t it make you wants to browse those shelves to find a good book, pour yourself a good brandy, and to sit quietly and disappear in a good book.
Muizenberg Train Station. Today is one of those strange days where the weather is not quite sure what it is going to do.
An HDR shot of the The Palace of Science and Technology in Warsaw. I love the way the top of the tower pokes into the dark thunder clouds, just waiting for the lightning bolt. Although that is an artifact of the HDR processing; if you look closely at the people in the foreground most of them are in summer clothing.
