Soaring hoods called Capirote, covered faces, habits and long cloaks – penitents are marching one after another in the Good Friday’s procession. This event makes a big impression and it is definitely worth experiencing. The most well-known procession is in Seville. It attracts tourists from around the world. However, if someone does not like the crowd, I recommend visiting other cities in the south of Spain.procession
You would expect that in the middle of the carnival fiesta all bars and restaurants are full of people having fun, talking, laughing, drinking, dancing etc., especially in tourist places. Well, it is off-season time.
In my previous post, I showed photos from the carnival parade. Now I want to show how the bars, restaurants, streets looked like at the time when a parade of happy dancers was passing by.
Carnival – ignites our imagination as soon as we think of places like Rio de Janeiro or Venice. But parades and events take place in almost all the cities in the southern, Catholic countries. The hundreds of dressed-up dancers, swinging their hips to the rhythm of the music, march through the small and big cities, and crowds of spectators look at them with delight. We also had a parade …
Karnawał – rozpala naszą wyobraźnie jak tylko pomyślimy o takich miejscach jak Rio de Janeiro czy Wenecja. Ale parady i zabywy odbywają się w zasadzie wszystkie miejscowości w południowych, katolickich krajach. Pochody poprzebieranych tancerzy, kołysząc biodrami w rytm muzyki, przemierzają małe i duże miasta, a tłumy gapiów przyglądają się im z zachwytem. U nas też była parada…
I like to take pictures of kids while they play at the playground. I can catch their emotions in a most natural way.
Girls had a lot of fun on the New Year Eve.

73. Anniversary of Warsaw Uprising.
The major World War II operation by the Polish resistance Home Army to liberate Warsaw from German occupation. The uprising was timed to coincide with the Soviet Union’s Red Army approaching the eastern suburbs of the city and the retreat of German forces. However, the Soviet advance stopped short, enabling the Germans to regroup and demolish the city while defeating the Polish resistance, which fought for 63 days with little outside support. The Uprising was the largest single military effort taken by any European resistance movement during World War II.
Cities are abstract places, you can find everything and imagine everything here. The mannequins’ naked torso standing among empty tables remind me people doing shopping.
