Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Soft Pastels

It was a great surprise and a great pleasure to visit Gdansk in Poland this weekend. The city centre has been totally renovated and built up from the ruins of WWII. A fantasy of soft pastels. Just in time for Cee’s challenge!

  1. Vilka hus. Jag har alltid velat åka till Budapest för att gå där med kameran och strosa bland husen, men det var ju vackert i Gdansk också 😀

      • Ordinary stone in natural colours, yes. But our houses are more often in yellow or red brick, or whitewashed. Wooden houses are red or yellow mostly.

      • I think so. The beauty of wooden houses make them more wanted again, nowadays, since new methods of keeping them freshly painted are introduced. There was of course a time when cities like Stockholm and others were burned down in great fires, and after that,stone was the only option…

      • It’s so hard for we new-worlders to grasp that concept of centuries of tradition …
        It’s what took Stringer and I to Europe every time – but, alas !, never to Scandinavia. You can’t do everything …

      • No…not everything, but we can travel here, via Internet. I would have loved Australia too – but I don’t think that will come true. If I ever get there, I’d love to have a drink with you. I think that might just be a good reason to go!
