20051113 Wroclaw Weekend

20051113 Wroclaw Weekend

Spent the weekend in Poland near the city of Wroclaw (pronounced Vrozwof).

Mainly a business trip but the wintry morning light was too good to ignore, even though I only had my compact Fujifilm 601Z with me.

In England, most towns can't support a single florist (all business lost to Supermarkets and Filling Stations), yet in Wroclaw the flower market seems to be open 24/7.

I was initially attracted to the shot by the backlighting of the flowers provided by the morning sun. But I used fill in flash because there were still some black shadowy areas.

FujiFilm FinePix F601Z
1/400s f/4.0 at 9.4mm iso160 with Flash full exif

other sizes: small medium large original

Perhaps due to the dark years of living they enjoy their new freedoms with colour.
Whatever the reason it's a very pretty thing to see. Love this shot, John.
