Here comes the sun!

Spring finally arrived in Poland. After four months spent in the dark and cold, the sun came, melt most of the snow away, uncovered the green and brought beautiful, warm wheather. It was so beautiful yesterday that for the first time in a long, long period I left house voluntarily and went for a walk with my fiancee and my camera. We sat on a bench and charged our solar batteries for a while, we opened our windows wide when we got back home, and we basked in the smell of fresh earth. It was amazing.

So amazing that I just couldn’t sit inside for too long – in the afternoon I grabbed my camera again and just got out. My plan was to shoot some photos of the early spring, see my friend Lucy, buy a printer/scanner/copier and go see the new Polanski movie.

The plan was realized in 50% plus – Lucy was not in town and it was already too dark for taking photos, but I bought the machine, visited my parents briefly and did see the movie.

“The Ghost Writer” is not, as some people said, his greatest achievement and the most important movie in his career, but it was good – it’s less a thriller or action movie, and more psychological, very much in the usual Planski’s style. Additionally, it’s great to realize that there are still movies that can surprise me.

And today, since my Multisport card arrived on Friday, I’m oficially launching the swimming season! The biking season is getting closer too – I can’t wait to switch from bus and car (no matter how I love my little Panda) to my two-wheeler…

PS. More photos on how winter caved before inevitable spring – here.

I changed the photo in the header.

What was there before was a beautiful picture of some misty bridge over a stream in some garden – a default picture for this blog’s theme, and while I liked it and felt it matches the overall visual palette, I realized that since it is my blog, maybe I should replace it with some photo of mine.

Especially that I have quite a few photos similar in atmosphere to that one, which I brought from Sweden, where I visited my friend Lucy at the end of October. They were taken in three picturesque towns of Malmö, Lund and Ystad and you can see them in my web album.

Right now I have chosen one of them to put in the blog’s header, but I have selected some more and keep them waiting for their turn – I’m planning to change the picture every month or so.

For now, you can admire the bridge connecting Malmö’s Slottsparken and Kungsparken :) More are to come in the future.
