Poland: Photo Essay of Krakow

Poland, September 2011



peeping through my lens pretzel

Kraków is one of the oldest cities in Poland, with evidence showing settlements there since 20,000 BC. Legend has it that it was built on the cave of a dragon whom the mythical King Krak had slain. Thus when I was wandering around the Old Town and Grand Square, I've seen a lot of souvenir shops that sell dragon merchandise.

I didn't spend much time in this lovely town. As I was just passing by after visiting Auschwitz Birkenau, a Nazi Concentration Camp in Poland. I wish I had more time to spend in Krakow. I love the old buildings and the laid back ambiance there.

  3. Just found your blog Debbz - loving your pics! My bf and I are leaving for our own RTW trip in March and we're so excited! What kind of camera do you use? We're really hoping to improve our photography skills when we travel!

  4. Hey Ami, thank you for finding me....I mean my blog :p
    My camera is Canon G11, it's tiny and easy to use like a point n shoot camera but with better quality and functions. Actually I love the DSLR picture quality but I don't like to lug a huge camera around.
    Good luck with your RTW trip. Can't wait to read your story :D

  5. I totally agree with you about the DSLR, we thought about getting one but were put off by the size and also the extra cost (especially if it was to get lost or stolen). You take great shots with your camera - I thought they had been taken with a DSLR!

    1. Thanks Amy ! I've done some trial and error with my Canon G11. And finally found the right setting for me. I think it's quite easy to use, mostly I use the auto program and just shoot :)
