Fighters for Freedom and Democracy Avenue

The name of the street on the photo is: "Fighters for Freedom and Democracy Avenue". I don't know when the street was named, but it was in communists times. But the name is still the same, only the words: freedom and democracy changed their meanings. I wish the people of Iran all the best and the change of meaning of freedom and democracy in their country.

I don't like graffiti on walls, but sometimes it looks interesting. I like this 'mouse' -- a popular theme for graffiti drawers in Chorzów, Katowice, or Świętochłowice.

    Watery Wednesday: mallards one more time...

    Mallards were on my blog many times, because there are quite popular in Chorzów. But I like this photo, maybe not because of mallards, rather because of sun reflections.

    Do You want a crystal skull?

    The 3rd Exhibition and Fair of Minerals, Fossils and Jewelry took place in The Hat -- an exhibition hall in The Silesian Park of Culture and Recreation on Saturday and Sunday. The photos are from Sunday's morning -- not all exhibitors comes into the Hat in the morning... I think the Fair was especially interesting for women, because there were mainly jewlery salesmen. But, if somebody was interested in minerals or meteorites, there where also special stands.

    Steelworks Batory Headquaters

    The Steelworks Batory Headquaters in Chorzów Batory. (Well, some Poles are surprised by name 'Chorzów Batory'. In fact, it is a part of today's Chorzów, but it was incorporated into Chorzów just in 1939. Formerly, it was independent village Wielkie Hajduki. The new name comes from the steelworks and the worker's settlement. But the name of the steelworks isn't initial. The initial name was Bismarckhütte. Otto von Bismarck was a great politician, but he didn't like Poles (and vice versa) -- so, when Chorzów become a part of Poland (1922) the name of the steelwork was changed into Batory, to commemorate polish king Stefan Batory (1533-1586).)

    An old lithograph

    Today I'am afraid of violating copyrights... It is an old colored lithograph (about 1850) of The King's Steelworks in today's Chorzów. (The lithograph belongs to Museum in Gliwice.)

    Sculpture & painting

    Above -- sculpture located near Chorzów Culture Center (for Ada), below -- the painting by Kazimierz Mikulski, polish painter from Kraków (1918-1998), whose works are presented in Galery MM (in Chorzów). I think almost all Poles knows his works -- maybe not paintings, but the cartoon: "Ferdynand the Magnificent" (about a dog, who was a perfect gentleman). The title of the painting below: "The small bouquet for beloved".
