SNOW IN PRODUCTION

















































I'm not going to lie about a hidden wish I had while visiting Silesian tracts: lots and lots of snow that sticks to gloves, freezes our ears off, falls crazily straight into our eyes! We didn't experience a snowstorm but a light shower of snowflakes so fragile they hardly covered our hats and didn't fall steadily for long but showed up for enough winks to get snapped up. The real winter snow fell the weekend after we came back home but I couldn't possibly get saddened up upon such unpredictable feature as snow. I've only kept telling myself: next time we'll get snowed in even if it means whisking away to the mountain countryside.  

Photographing Bytom (occasionally snowy) wasn't a challenge since the dim dusky light created by smoke coming out of the chimneys contrasted beautifully with dark facades, grey and red bricks and I have gotten fully into bringing it all out. I recognize current trend in photographing rough, raw buildings exposing their natural yet faded beauty through light and shadow. Wouldn't have thought my town gave me so much joy to capture. Come back for the best part - taking snapshots just before the sunset. Already makes me want to hop on a plane to see it once again.

  2. Bytom looks entirely different through your camera lens, mysterious and interesting.

    1. It was my intention to bring its dramatic Galician beauty out. Maybe I like it little bit more like that.
