Our Poland adventure now heads south from our base camp in the mountain town of Zakopane. We’ll drive into Tatra National Park and then set off on a two hour hike to Morskie Oko (“Eye of The Sea”).
Along the way we pass all sorts of Polish people, of all ages and fitness levels, out enjoying the late summer walk. Two hours to go and a lot of uphill ahead of us before we reach the lake.
Today’s photo essay sees us into Warsaw for brunch then an exploration around Łazienki (Royal Baths) Park. Łazienki Park is the largest park in Warsaw, at 76 hectares, and home to a number of fascinating buildings and structures including the Palace On The Water.
a little pondering on creating
on way to the Old Town Market Square
Even in Warsaw you can ‘eat fresh’ at a Subway. Surrounded by all sorts of cafes and restaurants you find a Subway humming along. Does this distress the other restaurants? Or do they shrug and consider that those likely weren’t their target audience to begin with? It can be like that now more than ever as we write, share, create, and post on the internet.
It dances around the issue of why we write and who we create for. If we want the largest loudest audience then watered down, hyper-sensationalized, easily consumed is the way to go.
But is that really what all of us want? Maybe it’s not about the numbers at all, but rather about sharing work with those who resonate around our shared vision and purpose. Creating images, telling stories, and putting forth things that might make people pause and dream, or stretch, or grow.

Adventures lurk in the moments
of our everyday.
Some take place on mountains, some in conversations, some in choices chosen, or let to pass.
Our world is full of people with a diverse range of talents, experiences, and ideas.
In my travels, digital and corporeal, I am fortunate to meet many an inspirational individual, and this is where I get to introduce them to you (and you to them as well).
Perspectives influence how we interpret and interact with the world.
We grow up believing a combination of what we’ve been taught, what we’ve seen and heard, and what we’ve assumed/deciphered along the way.
If you want to build a ship, don't drum up the men to gather wood, divide the work, and give orders. Instead, teach them to yearn for the vast and endless sea.
