Monument in Gdynia is not the best description you say? Well, there is not much more information I could get about that even though I was visiting Gdynia with locals. The only thing they could tell me, is that it comes from the communistic times. Close to it is the Joseph Conrad Monument, but I doubt that they are connected. Maybe you can help me with some information?
So far that has been the most interesting modern Library building I’ve seen. I was passing it every morning for two weeks on the way to my language course and I was always wondering what the 3 little “turbines” on each side are for. One day I went in to check it out, and can you believe it? They are three “single reading rooms”, where you can take your books, close the door behind you and have calm space to read. How cool was that idea of the architect?

Today I show you a picture which is a bit unusual for my style. It’s from the time when the Canon Camera was very new to me and I just wanted to try some things to get familiar with the new functions. This is one of the shots from that time. I liked it immediately but didn’t publish it yet. It is one of the few shots without any HDR processing that you can see here.
The picture was taking from a bridge that is connecting Germany and Poland or the towns Frankfurt and Slubice. The church itself stands on the German side.
