Winter Street Photography

Winter in Krakow

Black and White Photography during a snowy day

Winter is here in Krakow

And the January time has created a great photo opportunity for all of us who make black and white photo stories. To be frank, it was a fairly nice photo walk, despite the snow and wind. Maybe because, I have not done any photo walks in a while. 

People walking, dogs barking and running, birds seeking any kind of food and peaceful calm despite the fact I was in the heart of Krakow. That makes me relaxed the best; camera on my neck, tranquility around and above scenery that cannot look better than in black and white.

See the photographs yourself!

Winter Street Photography in Kraków

It has been a while since I posted here for the last time... Almost a month now but so much has happened since then. First of all, I got a new job and work as Guest Experience Manager for Orbis hotels in Krakow and I am based at brand new Mercure Krakow Stare Miasto hotel which was opened last September. I have settled in Krakow where I live now... Have to admit the return to Poland has been very smooth so far... 

Over last month I have met a great bunch of street photographers who share the same passion as I do for example Chris Wilson We have even laid some plans for some great activities in a new year. Sounds really exciting.  I am sure there will be much to do in the streets of Krakow with our cameras in hand.  What really made my day today was... snowfall... I know it may sound ridiculous but tonight's weather conditions in Krakow have caused unknown photo opportunities as I have never experienced before (there was no proper winter in the UK). A very low light (coming mainly from lampposts), reflected from snow, the pedestrians rushing home, seeking shelter from wind and cold created an amazing atmosphere that I just had to photograph.

I hope to be here more frequently as I dot not want and will NOT give up on my photography. If you have any suggestions, ideas please feel to share it with me via a contact form or in the comment field. And of course, any feedback on the shots from tonight are welcome... 

Until the next time, stay well and keep photographing...
