We are both very creative souls. We constantly feed each other with new ideas and don't seem to get enough of things that make us stimulated and keep inspired. We are simply hungry for more:)
I must confess that he is a better or I would say a more technically skilled photographer. If I had as much time as he, I would be better:) After a long period of being fascinated by digital photography he's back to the roots and is taking analog pictures. He created a new website where he showcases analog pictures only.
Here they are some of my favorites (out of those that he sent me). I have to add that for his recent trip to Turkey he took 5 cameras. You can see more and read more on his website http://filmalchemy.com/

She still is a very active person who organizes the Harvest Fest in her village. I just got some pictures from the recent celebration. It is always held on August the 15th, when Polish Catholics celebrate Saint Mary as the Queen of Poland. The custom is to create a bouquet made out of the filed flowers and bring it to church to have it blessed. I remember how she taught me to make one. The most important thing is to make top flat as a table.

Babcia and her two daughters. My aunt on the right is wearing a traditional Polish outfit. After the morning mass there is a parade through the village. People are dressed in traditional outfits and are carrying wreaths made out of this year's harvest.
