Two old ladies


This is one of my favourite photographs. It is going to be six years old in November, and even though I did not have a look at it in a very long time, I always managed to visualise it quite clearly.

During my Erasmus exchange in Krakow, Poland from September 2009 to February 2010, I always had my camera with me. It still exists, but does it work? I don’t know. Back then it was already an old digital camera, but the quality of the photos was satisfying enough for my needs.

This photograph, tells so many stories, is right in imagery. And then again, only show something very simple. Two old ladies on their way home from grocery shopping. I am longing to use it as a prompt, to come up with a story. But for now it is just a photograph.

I tool this photo next to Wawel Castle, on my way home, maybe from a lesson, that I do not remember. I just remember that I saw those two ladies and knew that I should capture the sight. I am happy to finally have the occasion to share it!

I would like to thank Ula and Gulara for nominating me to participate in the 5 days, 5 photos challenge. As I have received 2 back to back nominations, I might go for a double challenge. Make sure that you do check out both of their lovely blogs!

Ula nominated me as she posted a picture of Versailles and saw it fit for me to take up the challenge as I live in France. In return I decided to post a photo that I took in Poland, the country where Ula currently lives. And well Gulara’s nomination is linked to a different theme.

I would like to nominate my blogging friend Lrod, who always posts beautiful pictures, but has been a bit quiet lately, and this might be a good way to get back into the mood 🙂

The rules of the Five Photos, Five Stories Challenge are:

1) Post a photo each day for five consecutive days.
2) Attach a story to the photo. It can be fiction, non-fiction, poetry, or a short paragraph. It’s entirely up to the individual.
3) Nominate another blogger to carry on the challenge. Your nominee is free to accept or decline the invitation. This is fun, not a command performance!
