As you’ve probably noticed, my blog automatically displays random pictures from Flickr, tagged with the word ‘Poland’. These are not my pictures, although sometimes I wish they were.
And through this small Flickr plugin I discovered the amazing photography of a Poland-based woman who calls herself Violen. Her Violen’s Photography Flickr photostream is a joy to explore. She is based in the southern city of Bielsko Biała, not far from where I was born. She travels all over the south, charting everything – from beautiful architecture to urban decay and mountain landscapes.
Some of her pictures are taken in the advanced HDR technique, giving them this extra depth and a bit surreal dimension. All of them are very atmospheric and quite rich, both in texture and in content. If this is your first contact with Polish landscape, well, sit back and enjoy.
(Hope you also like the pics and it’s not just me being overly sentimental here.)
