Smaller citizens

Squirrel in the Silesian Culture and Recreation Park. Winter is bad time for animals -- they sometimes ask people for food. Yesterday a squirrel (not this one!) jumped on my trousers, asking for nuts. But I hadn't any with me.

Boy with a Swan

This photo is from June, but Fio provoked me presenting another copy of Theodor Kalide "Boy with a Swan" from Gliwice. Theodor Kalide was born in Königshütte (now: Chorzów) in 1801, and died in Gliwice. The photo was taken on Matejko's Square in Chorzów.

The other "Boys with a Swan" are in Wilanów (Warsaw) and Gliwice (The Museum of Artistic Casting).

Graffiti is a real plague, but sometimes looks quite good -- like this signature. ("BATOREGO" means 'from Batory's quarter'.)
