My self-portrait in the door of the Theatre of Entertainment. (I was trying to capture two glass doors with reflections for the march Theme Day, but I was only partially satisfied.)

Chaffinch sings on the tree.

Rules are strict -- so I must post a photo from Chorzów, but I want to show You two other photos -- both from Katowice, where I was yesterday (I was listening to the concert of modern music).

Above: the pianist (Iwona Mironiuk) is looking for the composer -- Tadeusz Wielecki.

Above: improvised installation of an aerial :-)

Farewell to Rawa

It was a river. It is a sewer. And it will be hidden under ground. (Work is in progress.) So, maybe it is the last photo.

Glass and reflections

Does this look funny for You? For me: yes. But I know this place -- on the photo are windows from the Hospital for Children in Chorzów. So, it is no place for fun, but for illness and pain...

Snow again...

A snow is something normal here (in Upper Silesia) in December, January and February. Not in March...

Gulls on the Roof

(Well, about one kilometer from this place, in The Teatre of Enterteinment they play "Fidler on the Roof".)

A sign of spring: Marzanna

Today I found in the pond (under the ice...) two small Marzannas -- it is a relict of a pagan ritual -- in the first day of spring children are 'drowning Marzanna', as a symbolical bury of the winter. In fact, nobody believes in this Slavic goddess, but it is a kind of traditional fest for children.

A screw. And below my hand to compare size. I think, You know bigger, but this is (probably) one of the sixteen (2 bridges x 2x2 sides x 2 screws) biggest in my district.

The perfect Ruch Chorzów fan

Maybe one notice: the sponsor of the Blues is a clothing manufacturer.

A sign of spring

I saw first flowers almost a week ago, but not in Chorzów... Yesterday morning I saw this from my window:

So, I'm happy to see spring today!

SkyWatch Friday, or: find one (big) difference

The photos are from my archive (but today the weather is simmilar -- it is also snowing...). There is one big difference, but I don't know how noticeable it is.

St Hedwig Church again

St Hedwig Church again. The church is maybe not my favourite, but it is centrally located, and often is on my route.

Uncomon guest

Today I was completely surprised seeing this Mandarin Duck (in the Park of the Roses). In my atlas of birds is a short information: can be sporadically found in Poland.

Today I've met more uncommon birds -- something small (a kind of old world warbler) and something big -- maybe a common buzzard?

Stained-glass window or a sing of the spring

The stained-glass window in St. Francis of Assisi Church. The only one stained-glass window in this church. The window is in fact a proposition or an advertisement of stained-glass producer (from Chorzów). Friars (owners of the church) want to change all windows into stained-glass, but they have not enough money yet.

(Un)famous blue cloak

On Sunday I've seen many such blue things around the Silesian Stadium, and almost in whole Silesian Culture and Recreation Park. I wonder, what it is. And, yes, now I know! -- Blue cloaks of Ruch Chorzów fans used for local derby (soccer match Ruch Chorzów - Górnik Zabrze, 0:1; 40 000 fans, 13 of them were arrested...).

The local derby was a reason for TV to come to Chorzów.

Yesterday I've met television OB car (TVN24) near the Silesian Stadium.
