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.
Just another lazy sunset on the lovely island of Aegina, Greece.
Aegina is not very touristy. But many Athenians have holiday homes on the Island. If we lived in Athens, I could be very happy having this little house overlooking the Adriatic Sea as a weekend getaway.
The statue of Archduke Charles looks over the Heldenplatz (Hero’s Square), next to the Hofburg Palace in Vienna. Built in 1860, it glorifies the Habsburg dynasty. Charles was the leader of the Austrian army, and in the early 1800s fought against Napoleon.
Warsaw doesn’t only have an historical city. It also had a very modern business district, complete with glass facaded skyscrapers. I took this photo while standing by the last remaining piece of the ghetto wall, and it is quite a dichotomy seeing this modern view while standing next such a profound piece of history.
