Just before the Wedding Season, I decided to go up for quick holidays over to Poland. I had a chance to visit Krakow and Warsaw during 5 day stay. Instead of just documenting a visit, I decided to shoot images with one word: contrast. Either it is a light contrast, or more alternatively, contrast of narrative, of location, of moment. Apart from that, I also tried to explore lines and shapes of both modern and old architecture.
During the stay, me and my wife had a chance to jump into markets, where you can find absolutely everything. From fresh bakery, clothes of various quality, cosmetics, flowers, meat (!), local eggs, fresh organic produce and much, much more. I think this is one of the things that I miss in Ireland. Chance to go out to wonder around, to see what local entrepreneurs have to offer, either it’s local meat, produce, or hand made products. Or, I might just not be aware of such a locations in Ireland?
It is also great to see the ‘contrast’ between that old-school way of making sale and new, modern shopping centres. They are absolutely everywhere, and only during the stay, we had a chance to jump into Galeria Krakowska in Krakow (first set of images from the Shopping Centre), ZloteTarasy (glass and steel roof shaped as waves) in Warsaw and on the way back to airport, we jumped into Galeria Bronowice (last set of shots) in Krakow again.
It was a short, intense stay, yet quite positive and relaxing.
