St Mary Magdalene Church in Chorzów Stary (i.e. 'Old Chorzów'). The Church was built in the years 1889-1892, after a fire (that ruined older church, from the year 1782). In this place the oldest church was built in 13th or 14th century (before 1325).
Cormorants in the ZOO. Photo was taken in July 2007 -- but... it is a problem to find something for "Watery Wednesday" now... almost the whole visible water is in a form of ice or snow.
--- PS. My friend asked me:
Weird little request for you if you're up for it:
A friend of mine has a daughter who's doing this class project thing where they're trying to get postcards from around the world. I don't know if it's a competition, or what. But the more I thought about it, the more I thought it was kind of a cool thing and figured I'd enlist some help so Emma could get some postcards from strange, faraway lands as well as places a little closer to home but still far enough away from Wisconsin. So what's in it for you? You get to write "Wauwatosa" on a postcard.
If you're up for it and you think to do it, here's the address to send it to:
St. John's Lutheran School 1278 Dewey Avenue Wauwatosa WI 53213 Attn: Mrs. Leyrer's class
You should just put " Hi Emma" and sign your name and the city and state.
The weather was awful in Sunday. I didn't go for a Sunday walk with a camera, so... I haven't any new photos... And I would like to show You in this week photos from the Silesian ZOO (part of the Silesian Culture and Recreation Park in Chorzów) -- the photos were taken in June 2007.
Lois asked to visit Newton Daily Photo blog. Well, I've visited this blog, and decided to add some 'reflection'. But, what reflection? I've already posted a reflection... This photo I took today, on my walk. Some weeks ago my friend asked me, why there are only a few my new photos in internet. I answered: 1) I have smaller and smaller place on my Picassa (well, I can use also Photobucket and Fotosik...), 2) it is not so easy, to go with poles and take a photos :)
