Ah, what color against that sky!
And I seem to remember my friend liking pinwheels - always getting one when a youth...

Very colorful and fun - nice composition with the Royal Palace in the background! Are there any princes aged 10, 7, and 4?

superbe profondeur de champs avec l'église orthodoxe( très belle, il me semble ) et puis la fête des couleurs en premier plan, bon weekend

What a colorful contrast!

Bibi, did the Royal Palace actually survive WWII, or was it rebult?

Poland suffered so horribly in that war - and suffered more afterwards because Roosevelt gave her away to Stalin.

Bibi said...

Hello, Louis. Yes, from what I understand this palace was destroyed, then rebuilt.

Be back soon!

Unusual and captivating image.

Wow! there is so much in this photo - the mix of new and old, the whimsical and stately, the primary, bold colors and the rich tones of the building, and of course - the sky.

Katarina said...

I love this photo! The pinwheels are so sharp, it feels like I could almost touch them!

Rebecca said...

Wow, this makes me think of a meme I've done a few times called Color Carnival. This would be a great link for it.
