Kraków, Poland, just as promised. My Internet connection is great, the only problem is, that I forgot my computer mouse. Editing images with a touchpad is, well, interesting. I’ll get one tomorrow 🙂

We drove all day, everything went well, but we arrived when it was already dark. I was tired from the road and only went out for half an hour to make some images.

These bronze soldiers stand on the small square just in front of our hotel. I have no idea who they were. There is an inscription at the bottom of the monument, but of course it’s Polish. I’ll ask at the reception tomorrow.

The Song of the Day is “Celluloid Heroes” by The Kinks. I have it on disc two of “The Ultimate Collection”. See a live video on YouTube.

  1. Wonderful image; I'd love to know the story of that monument.

  2. have a nice week. a very nice week.
    i''m sure, you will come back with new material

  3. I have asked. It's part of a monument for Józef Pi?sudski, head of the Polish state between 1918 and 1935. The four soldiers look up to another statue representing Pi?sudski. Silly me, I should have known, after all we live here in Pi?sudski Street 🙂
