Photographer's Note

Polish Life - Page 5

For many - the most hated place in the country. For many others - a God's send, for various reason. Central Station of Warsaw belongs to the ugliest places I have seen. But still - I may say the same about most of the main railway stations in Europe I have been to.
For many this was and still is the first "European" place they see while leaving their small towns or villages in their quest for (any) jobs. I think that not many Poles realize that this city of Warsaw received and accommodated, and offered jobs to the hundreds of thousands Poles in the last 15 years of democracy in the country (the number inludes the person who is writting these words).
Interesting that it is estimated that after the WW II there were around 200,000 people living in Warsaw. Nowedays the number is like 1.7 million officially (during the weekends), and over 2.5 million during the weekdays.

Photo: Taken before boarding on the train to Katowice. An Inter-City express gets there within 2 and a half hours (280 km). Not bad at all.
Handheld @ISO 100. Still learning how to use that credit-card size Sony T7.
